SafeStart at 2019 Safety Summit

Joe Tantarelli delivering Buried Alive presentation

In April, the 2019 Safety Summit took place in Austin, TX. SafeStart Safety Consultant Joe Tantarelli delivered Buried Alive: A Survivor’s Story as the opening keynote on day two of the conference.

Buried Alive goes into detail about a time early in Joe’s career that he was nearly buried alive in a trench collapse.  After years of searching for what went wrong, Joe finally learned not only why it happened but what everyone can do in their lives to prevent injuries from happening.

Hear Joe tell his story here in this on-demand webinar.
