BIO: “Grizzy”, as he likes to be called, has been recognized by OSHA’s National Office in Washington D.C. as both a National Electrical Code (NEC®) historian as well as “the best electrical safety trainer in the country!” Certainly at the very least Grizzy has been OSHA’s electrical safety “go-to guy” and has been instrumental in shaping and interpreting OSHA policy and regulations for several decades.

Grizzy continues to train OSHA compliance officers and personnel coast to coast, as well as still providing investigative assistance to the Agency on fatality investigations and significant cases. His electrical expertise has not only shaped OSHA policy but also the OSHA Electrical Standards. Grizzy is currently a member of the ASTM F-18 Committee which writes the “Electrical Protective Equipment for Workers” standards.

Recognized nationally as preeminent in regulatory electrical safety training, private corporations and agencies outside of OSHA are now obtaining the same training that the OSHA inspectors obtain form Grizzy, as well as insight into navigating the complex regulatory requirements.

Recently Grizzy has been lightning screenpresenting and lecturing on various aspects of some of the rare and unique electrical artifacts and high voltage apparatus which he has been collecting for decades, some of which date back prior to the turn of the 20th Century.mask of fu manchu nebularium 1932
