Donna’s safety career sparked in 1987 with a mechanical contractor in northwest Tennessee, which quickly excelled as she served in various safety and management roles within other organizations including; Loss Control Specialist, Safety Consultant, and Vice-President of Safety. Donna seized the opportunity to move to Southwest Tennessee and start her own consulting service business, which specialized in the development and implementation of safety programs for construction contractors. Donna’s vision for safety culture instead of safety program separates her from competitors as she created and trademarked two programs: Safety Orientation System (S.O.S.) and Safety Training and Testing (S.T.A.T). These programs cover the basic OSHA requirements for new hire and annual training for employees and contractors in all industries.
