PASSION &

Purpose

When I walk through our doors each morning, the building is buzzing with activity. On the main floor, I can hear metal clanging on the tower as a rescue team practices their skills. The training rooms are full of students engaging with trainers sharing their knowledge in the areas of safety leadership and teambuilding. Upstairs I can hear teams brainstorming about the next big project or campaign. Down the hall, a coordinator answers her phone with a sense of joyfulness – even though she may face 20 to 30 calls that day. But through it all, passion and dedication still radiates from our employees. Sometimes, I see tears as a staff member reads yet another story of a teen driver killed behind the wheel or a construction worker permanently disabled due to a preventable fall. As painful as these stories are to read, it’s in these moments that I see a reinvigorated devotion to our mission in each of our employees. We know you share this same passion.

There’s no better feeling than going to work each day with a sense of purpose, and getting to work side-by-side with a group of people fueled by passion.

Chuck Clairmont Executive Director

In this line of work, passion is crucial. The work of a safety professional can be thankless and emotionally exhausting but, without passion, the work we do would fall short. When lives are at stake, there’s no room for a poorly written safety program; an unfinished response plan; or a haphazard safety meeting. We know the work you do is hard – but you’re not in it alone. We’re here supporting you. We are all one team, on one mission, with a shared passion for saving lives.

A private non-profit.

SAFETY IS ABOUT PEOPLE Jay Skarphol had his post-retirement planned out. But that was before tragedy struck. Living and working in the oil fields of western North Dakota as a senior environmental health and safety specialist, Skarphol, a native of the Tioga area, wrapped up his long career in the Bakken region in July of 2011 to move to Fargo. He was 56. He and his wife, Jeanne, had purchased a home in Fargo three years earlier to be closer to their children and grandchildren. Jeanne was already living there, enjoying being a grandma and helping with daycare. “My plan was to work part-time at Fleet Farm or Scheels for the discount on the guns and ammo and the clothes and ride things out that way,” Skarphol says. Fate intervened. On Friday, May 25, 2012, Memorial Day Weekend, the Skarphol family was changed forever. Their eldest son, Trevor, was killed at a West Fargo construction site at 11:38 that morning. The lead electrician on the project, he was struck in the back of the head and right side of his body by a 28-foot, steel column weighing 1,452 lbs. He was 35 days short of his 31st birthday. He left behind his wife, Angie; son, Jaxon, age 8 1/2; and son, Bo, 2 years, 10 months.

and grief. The first indication that something was wrong came in the form of a phone call. His daughter, Tennille, a surgical tech at a Fargo hospital, reported in a shaky voice that they had just received a Level 4 trauma call from Trevor’s worksite, and that it involved one of the electricians. Shortly after, Tennille’s husband, Steve, called to say he was coming to pick up his father-in-law so they could head to the building site. En route, Tennille called again. Her message of four words forever ring in Skarphol’s head: “Dad, it was Trevor!” By this time, the police had visited the hospital and informed Tennille and Trevor’s wife, Angie, also a surgical tech, that the accident was fatal. “I still hear her voice to this day,” laments Skarphol. “A daughter is not supposed to have to tell her dad that he just lost his son. That’s when everything got real—I mean it really got real!” Skarphol and his son-in-law turned their vehicle around, as now the task at hand was to inform Skarphol’s wife, Jeanne, of the tragic news. “How in the hell am I gonna tell her?” he remembers asking himself. “My voice was cracking when I came through the door. She was in the hallway and I caught her and grabbed her and said it was Trevor. She reacted the way a mother would react.” The next stop was the hospital, but Trevor was never brought there—his body was transported by the first responders to the “on-call” funeral home. It was not the funeral home the family preferred, so Trevor was transported again. “It was between 3 and 4 when we finally saw him,” recalls Skarphol. “We rode to the funeral home with Angie’s mom and dad. I don’t even remember driving home from the hospital—no recollection whatsoever!”

Trevor had planned to quit early that day and head to his cabin on Ottertail Lake. His father was the last family member he spoke with before the accident. “Trevor called me at 9:30 to check on Bo because he was fussy that morning when he dropped him off at our home. That was our last conversation.” For Skarphol, the events of the day are blurred by emotion

NDSC 2018-19 ANNUAL REPORT


To this day, Skarphol’s fatherly reaction to the tragedy is,

Why couldn’t God have taken me, instead of him? “He was hitting his stride and things were really going good: he finds a great gal, he’s got a little family, he’s lead electrician on a job, and they’ve got a place on a lake. Then this happens and everything comes crashing down!”

worthwhile,” says Skarphol. Skarphol, 63, has been employed by the Safety Council as a safety consultant for the past six years. He’s officially fulltime today, and Fleet Farm and Scheels are completely out of the picture. Dedicated to his new mission, Skarphol says, “I’ll do what I do as long as I can walk and talk!” Now with four grandsons, Skarphol strives to be an attentive grandfather. Contributing to that is the obligation he feels to be there for Trevor. “I’ve got to pick up the slack for him,” he says. “As the boys have grown older, it’s become a balance between my time with them and my mission to keep tragedy from happening to someone else.” Some build monuments to commemorate loved ones following loss; Skarphol’s monument is his work in safety, helping keep families whole.

Skarphol takes solace in the fact that Trevor died instantly, that he didn’t suffer. As Skarphol walked toward the coroner that day at the funeral home, she read his thoughts and immediately reported, “He didn’t feel a thing.” “That gives me a little peace of mind, that he went like that,” says Skarphol. Skarphol’s background in safety was both a blessing and a curse. On the blessing side, knowledge and experience helped him understand how things unfolded that day at the worksite; on the curse side, it added to his anguish as he realized the tragedy was preventable. That prevention piece is precisely what brought Skarphol back into safety work. As the events of May 25, 2012, continued to churn in his mind, he felt “called” to send Chuck Clairmont, the executive director of the North Dakota Safety Council, whom he knew from attending safety conferences, an email: “Hey, you got anything going in the eastern part of the state?” That was six months after losing Trevor. The email was sent at 2 pm; Clairmont got back to him at 9 the following morning. “My feeling was that if I could do something in safety to turn someone’s head to make them think about what they’re doing, and to make the right choices, then it’s all

I’ve witnessed a lot of successes in my career. I have seen first-hand, the value of good training when faced with a medical emergency. And every single time, that reunion with a loved one after a neardeath situation… it gets to me.

Our purpose is to give daycare providers the confidence they need to save a child’s life when an emergency strikes. We teach emergency response teams at the plants and mines new techniques so they can sustain life in a rural setting. We help employers figure out exactly how many AEDs they should have and where to place them when every second counts.

We work every day to eliminate preventable traffic fatalities. There are just too many fatalities on our roads and the deaths are often caused by simple things – one second of distraction, a decision to drive when fatigued, speeding to arrive just 10 minutes earlier, or ignoring poor weather conditions. Our purpose, plain and simple, is to help employers improve their fleet driving records; ensure bus drivers transport school children safely to their destinations; keep workers safe in workzones; and give inexperienced drivers a better chance at avoiding crashes or even death.

The average person spends more than 90,000 hours in their lifetime at work. Our purpose is to serve alongside employers as they create safe working conditions for their employees. Through engaging and memorable training, we can help every employee make it home safely to their family at the end of their work day.

I have a twin brother who is a construction manager. He has a lot of responsibility resting on his shoulders in a hazardous industry. Keeping people safe while getting work done is a balancing act, but cutting corners is never an option. Even though I work at the Safety Council and he works in construction, in the end, we both essentially have the same job – keeping people safe on the job. That’s inspiring to me. - Karen Selensky, Workplace Safety Manager

CONTRACTOR SAFETY

& COMPUTER-BASED TRAINING

Energy Coalition for Contractor Safety

The Energy Coalition for Contractor Safety (ECCS) has proved that utilizing standardized safety practices for contractor management can have major impacts on injury rates. The ECCS was formed in 1997 by a group of North Dakota energy companies to ensure the safety of contractor employees on their worksites. Since their inception, incident rates among the coalition members have significantly decreased, while man hours have increased. They have done this by requiring contractors to meet a strict set of safety standards, including annual 10-panel drug screenings; OSHA-10 or ECCS Refresher training every three years; and safety plans inclusive of all work types to be performed on their sites. The NDSC plays an active role in ECCS, including serving as the database administrator.

ECCS Approved Contractors:

THE FOUNDATION FOR A

Safer North Dakota

August 2019 marked the completion of year number two at the new Safety Campus. When we originally dreamt of the safety campus concept, we envisioned a facility where students didn’t just attend a training course, they EXPERIENCED it. Now on any given day at the Safety Campus, you will see trenches being dug in the dirt arena; students extinguishing simulated fires; hazard

identification exercises being performed; or students practicing patient rescues off the side of the training tower. These interactive exercises are not only improving the training experience, they’re increasing retention rates so employees return to their worksites with a solid foundation of knowledge to help them perform their jobs safely.

Purpose Passion OUR

OUR

When you ask someone in the safety field what motivates them, you get a variety of answers. For some, it’s family. Others, it’s a calling to make a positive impact in this world. Unfortunately some have experienced the devastation caused by a preventable death, and are fueled by a passion to ensure no one else experiences the same heartbreak. At it’s core, SAFETY is about people - and we’re proud to partner with people like you who take this mission as personally as we do.
