Keynote Speaker: Marc Yeston

High Hazard Work

Over the course of his forty-year career in public safety, Marc Yeston has worked as a flight paramedic, a federal and state law enforcement officer, a firefighter, a ski patroller, a National Park Service Chief Ranger, a wilderness guide, an educator and a pilot. The bulk of his career was spent leading emergency and search & rescue operations at the busiest inland search & rescue venue in the country—Grand Canyon National Park. Over those years, Marc has had daily opportunities to practically apply the principles of High Reliability and New View Safety in high-intensity environments. Now a retired chief ranger, Marc serves as a presenter, instructor and consultant in Human & Organizational Performance, Safety Differently, Operational Learning and Wilderness Emergency Medicine. Marc engages workers and leaders with dramatic stories from his world of high-hazard work. Participants come away with a new appreciation for the complexities workers face every day but more importantly, they come away with a new vocabulary and fresh insights relevant to making their own worlds safer, more productive and so much better.
