Ron Applegate

Ron Applegate - Safety Training - OSHA 10 and 30 Hour CoursesRon began his career working in the mining industry. During the next 25 years, he worked his way up from laborer to foreman. During this period of time, he spent several years as a safety representative for fellow employees.

While working at the mines, he received his certification as a Mine Safety and Health Administration Instructor in 1992. With this, he was responsible for training new miners and annual miner refresher courses in accordance with the Federal mine safety requirements.

Since coming to the construction industry he has worked as an operator, safety manager, project manager and operations manager for Reno and Carson City area contractors.

In 2005 Ron began working as a Director of Construction overseeing all aspects of the development of a master planned community located in the Spanish Springs Valley. With the downturn of the economy, Ron's position with the development company evaporated and he chose to take his career in another direction.

With the recent changes in construction safety requirements, he felt that he could help the miners, construction workers and contractors by providing the required training.

To do so, Ron obtained the “Authorized Trainer” status for Federal and California to allow him to teach 10 and 30 hour Construction Safety Classes.
