Accident Prevention a Lifelong Mission for ExpressTalks

Speaker Brad Livingston

Professional Development Broadcast Hosted by Express Employment Professionals


Crystal Lake, IL, September 13, 2022—Highlighting the importance of
workplace safety, Express Employment Professionals is proud to partner
with former oilfield worker and workplace accident survivor Brad
Livingston for the latest installment of ExpressTalks, a professional
development event.
Express of Crystal Lake will host ExpressTalks, Just a Second Ago: The Brad
Livingston Story on Wednesday, Sept. 21. Participants can register online
at There is no cost to attend this leadership event.
After having survived back-to-back explosions at work and overcoming a 5% survival rate due to
his injuries, Livingston shares what controllable factors lead to workplace accidents and how
they are 100% preventable.
While he lay on the ground expecting to die, Livingston found himself thinking two things—first,
that he had just been involved in two explosions, because after all, “It will never happen to
me,” and second, that “It happened so fast. It was just a second ago.”
Examining how and why the incident happened, Livingston will speak about five factors present
in every line of work and in every business that can contribute to preventable workplace
accidents: pride, shortcuts, improper perspectives, attitude, and complacency.
“The goal of each worker should be to return home safely every day,” said Terri Greeno, Crystal
Lake franchisee. “Brad’s story is truly remarkable and provides valuable lessons about the
simple daily safety checks that could save your life.”
This program has been approved for one credit hour with SHRM, HRCI, HRPA, and CPHR.
The Crystal Lake Express franchise began operation in 2003 and serves the McHenry County
area with temporary help and direct hire employees in a variety of fields, including light
industrial, professional, administration, and skilled trades.
