Meet our Featured Instructor, Heather Tibbitts
Read her complete bio here.
Instructor since: 1995
Favorite topic to teach: Emergency response and DOT
Best part of teaching: “I enjoy the challenge of engaging employees to educate them. Safety training is often looked at as boring but I try to make it as interactive as possible.”
Heather’s upcoming courses:
“Heather’s training was very professional and she’s extremely knowledgeable.” -Senior construction manager
Instructor since: 2000
Favorite topic to teach: “Confined space training because students seem to have the most interest, best questions and like to perform the tasks we teach. Plus, I have fun when we do the hands on rescues in our training simulator at Safex.”
Best part of teaching: “I like seeing when people get it. Safety training isn’t just theory or nagging people about doing things wrong. When I’m training others I feel like I’m making a difference in somebody’s life.”
Most interesting class: A machinist who had been on TV many times showcasing antique tractors he had restored. And a few NFL players and an Olympic athlete.
Instructor since: 1978 (started as a high school teacher and then became a plant training director)
Favorite topic to teach: Hearing conservation because his father was severely affected by noise induced hearing loss.
Best part of teaching: “I enjoy sharing my interesting experiences from the field so students don’t necessarily do the things I’ve done.”
Most interesting students: He taught a 40-hour HAZWOPER in Manila to students from the Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and Nepal.
