Richard Hawk Biography

Richard Hawk has been in the safety and health field for more than 30 years. He spent 15 of them as a safety professional in the nuclear industry and as a safety advisor on constructions projects. Hawk’s background also includes theater, where he toured with acting companies and wrote a musical which was produced by Emerson College in Boston. His depth of knowledge and extensive experience make for content-rich, behavior-changing learning programs that are truly “fun.”

Hawk holds numerous safety and technical certifications from various organizations including the National Safety Council (NSC), the Institute of Nuclear Power Operations (INPO), and The National Registry of Radiation Protection Technologists (NRRPT). He stays on the leading edge of the safety industry through his interactions with thousands of leaders in hundreds of organizations in a wide array of industries. These include energy, manufacturing, chemical, construction, healthcare, technology, retail, food services, transportation, government, and education.

Since 1999, Hawk’s bi-weekly "Safety Stuff" e-zine acts as a clearinghouse for the best ideas from thousands of safety professionals around the globe. He is the author of four popular books: Spice It Up! 52 Easy Ways Turn Your Safety Meetings From Bland to Grand, The Safety Leader’s Guide Book, Just Imagine!, and 250 Super Bright Safety Meeting and Promotional Ideas. His articles are regularly published in safety magazines, and he is a monthly columnist for the U.S. national safety magazine —Safety & Health.

Hawk has a talent for connecting with people from diverse backgrounds and industries. His experiences as a union and nonunion employee, manager, safety leader; and now successful business owner, give him the insight to relate to people at all levels, from new employees to CEOs, truck drivers to scholars.

He has been a featured speaker at international conventions for Fortune 500 companies’ safety leaders; he’s presented to engineers and plant managers in India and Dubai, Canadian CEO’s as well as Japanese technicians. He has been a popular keynote speaker three times at the NSC’s Annual Congress & Expo, the largest annual safety convention in North America.

Hawk is an avid pool player and an accomplished musician and songwriter. He lives in Southern New Jersey with his wife, Jackie.
