Watch the Safety Summit video

Author: Marissa Gebhard

All faculty, staff and students are encouraged to watch the Safety Summit video featuring Charlie Morecraft, a dynamic speaker who shares his personal story that illustrates the impact that personal decisions can make on one’s life and the lives of his or her family members.

In 1980, Charlie Morecraft was working the night shift at an Exxon oil refinery in New Jersey. When he went to one of the manifolds in the refinery to change out a blank on a pipeline, a surge of chemicals came gushing out. He ran to his truck, seconds before it exploded. “Everything I had, I lost in one split second,” Morecraft said.

The Division of Campus Safety and University Operations works with all departments and divisions across campus to educate, train and prepare staff to work together to prevent accidents from happening. Campus-wide training sessions like this serve to increase awareness and understanding of the importance of following safety precautions and that safety is everyone’s responsibility.
