About Dick

I don’t have a right to make my living where it is okay for you to get hurt.


The leadership of safety is a key focus in my work. Over 95% of all injuries and incidents are the result of the actions of people. So reducing unsafe behaviors is the path to reducing injuries and incidents.


I serve organizations throughout the world with the application of complex adaptive systems models. I work with government, senior executives and line managers community development and social service providers.


I apply the principles of complex adaptive systems theories in manufacturing operations, safety, health and environment, risk management, community and community relations.
