Dave Tolbert, CSP
With safety running as a common thread throughout his personal and professional life, Dave likes to think safety and safety leadership are in his DNA. Early in his career, Dave was tapped to organize and run various safety committees in addition to his job responsibilities as an electrical designer in the power industry.
Earning several safety awards for his activities at work, Dave was also rewarded for his safety leadership as a ski patroller with the National Ski Patrol (NSP). He was awarded the NSP yellow star for his individual lifesaving efforts on two separate occasions. Additionally, Dave provided leadership as a volunteer firefighter in his hometown for several years obtaining firefighter II status.
In recognition of his safety efforts at work, Dave was promoted to senior risk manager and then corporate safety director. There he grew his knowledge in the corporate risk, risk financing, and safety arenas, impacting a greater audience with his program knowledge and caring philosophy.
Capitalizing on this experience Dave is now a regional safety director for a nationwide mechanical company providing safety support for operating companies across the country. He approaches his role with empathy and an altruistic philosophy. His experience and industry knowledge will aid him immensely as he pursues executive leadership positions within the ASSP Rocky Mountain Chapter.
