Speaker: Regina McMichael
At 20 years old, Regina McMichael got the call that her husband had died falling off a roof at a jobsite he was working. That was the day her safety career started.
At an age when most people are just starting to think about what it means to be an adult, Regina went from planning a funeral, to investigating her late husband’s accident, to transforming her workers’ compensation benefit into a university degree in safety, to participating in the writing of the OSHA fall protection guidelines that could have prevented her husband’s death.
Today, she’s a world-renowned inspirational safety speaker and trainer whose energy, humor, and engaging style draws rave reviews from clients like General Motors, the National Safety Council, and the American Society of Safety Professionals, among countless others.
