Nationally Recognized Speaker to Present at Safety Conference

Nationally recognized inspirational speaker Brad Livingston will be acting as Keynote speaker for the Beyond Safety & Reliability Conference and Expo. His presence at the conference is being sponsored by BP Whiting Refinery.

WEDNESDAY JANUARY 15th, 2014—MERRILLVILLE, IND.—Well-known inspirational speaker Brad Livingston, whose moving speeches tackle worksite safety and his ability to overcome serious physical trauma, has been selected as Keynote speaker of the Beyond Safety & Reliability Conference.

Livingston, a welder’s helper back in 1991, was seriously injured on the job when he was caught in two back-to-back explosions. Despite being given a 5% chance of survival, Livingston lived through a difficult recovery process and many procedures, such as skin grafts and amputations. 23 years after his near-fatal accident, Livingston is a nationally recognized speaker on the importance of worksite safety.

Brad Livingston will be joining over 25 additional safety speakers at the Beyond Safety Conference, being held February 11th and 12th at the Radisson Star Plaza in Merrillville, Indiana. The Beyond Safety Conference & Expo is the Midwest’s largest safety and reliability conference. Attendees experience a number of benefits in addition to their many speakers, such as networking opportunities, the ability to earn CEUs (Continuing Education Units) for attending, and a chance to learn about the latest advances in safety and reliability technology.

“We’re thrilled that BP of Whiting, one of our presenting sponsors, was able to secure such a well-known and inspirational speaker for our conference,” said Andrea Pearman, Executive Director of the Northwest Indiana Business Roundtable (NWIBRT). “Brad Livingston’s presence at Beyond Safety is an honor and we’re excited to hear his thoughts on worksite safety.”
