“Stand Down for Road Safety” presented by U.S. Silica

Registration is open for PRSC’s 2019 “Stand Down for Road Safety” presented by U.S. Silica, which will be held on Thursday, November 7, in Monahans, Texas. This event is held purposely on November 7 to commemorate that day as the last time Texas roadways were fatality-free in 2000. The event also serves as an opportunity to share the best road safety practices from around the nation and to learn from road safety training presented by recognized national safety experts.

Please take this moment to stand down for road safety with industry colleagues from all over the Permian Basin and send a message of your support for safer roads in the Permian Basin.

Doors of the Ward County Event Center will open at 7:30 a.m. with coffee, a light breakfast, and networking with safety experts in an expo setting. The event begins at 8:30 a.m. and will conclude at 12:00 p.m. There is no charge to attend though donations to help offset the costs of breakfast are gladly accepted.

The keynote address for “Stand Down for Road Safety” presented by U.S. Silica, will be delivered by Tim Gard, Hall of Fame Speaker, international humorist, and former oil field worker. His address, entitled “Sticky Safety,” will be one you won’t soon forget. That’s because funny is sticky.

People remember things that make them laugh. Most people would probably point out safety is serious and there is nothing funny about safety. In a way, they would be correct. There is not anything funny about an injury or accident but the principals you’ll learn in this inspiring keynote will demonstrate how humor helps people stay focused, present and “in the now.”

Tim has worked in some very dangerous jobs, experienced workplace injuries and his insights are based on real-life situations anyone can identify with and learn from. His message and proven methods are both profound and hilarious.
