    Safety Management Consultant

    Peter Koch

    “Safety’s all about doing the right thing. Whether owning a business, managing a company, or running a crew, we have a moral obligation for the safety and well being of the people who work with us. The cultures of many successful companies are based on up-front expectations for performance, training, communication, follow-up, accountability, setting the example, and trust. These principles of culture building are not unique to any one specific industry, but are germane across them all. They hold true for the companies I have worked for and with. Safety is a prerequisite of a solid workplace culture.”

    Peter has over 28 years of experience in the New England recreation industry, which includes 20 years, spent either working in or managing all aspects of the ski industry, from construction, facilities maintenance, snowmaking, grooming, patrol, and lifts in Mountain Operations to ski school, lodging, tickets, and food service on the Resort Operations side. Because the ski industry is so diverse—combining hospitality with construction, health care, manufacturing, and outdoor recreation—Peter has had the opportunity to work in almost all categories of businesses insured by MEMIC.

    Peter graduated from Springfield College with a Bachelor of Science degree in Recreation Industry Management. He holds certifications from the National Ski Patrol, the Professional Ski Patrol Association, and the Professional Ski Instructors of America. Peter is an authorized instructor in both the OSHA 10-hour Construction and the OSHA General Industry Outreach Training Programs.
