About Dale Knutson: I began my career in 1973 in the USN as a Machinery Repairman (Machinist) and spent the next 25 years in food processing, power generation, and precision manufacturing. Another 10 plus years were spent in higher education involved in manufacturing technologies along with skill upgrade training and new technology training for business and industry. In my most recent history I have been the Environmental Health & Safety manager in the oil & gas and ethanol manufacturing industries. I am currently the EH&S manager for Integrity Windows & Doors in Fargo. I also own a training, consulting, and auditing company that I started in 2009. I am an authorized trainer for OSHA 10 & 30 for both construction and general industry as well as SafeLand/SafeGulf for oil and gas, First Aid, CPR/AED, Blood Borne Pathogens, and others.
I have been formally involved in safety throughout my entire work history. Everybody has a ‘what’s in it for me’ reason to be safe. My primary reasons are 1 wife, 2 kids and their spouses, and most importantly 4 grandkids.
