MICHAEL ADAMS, Safety Consultant



What do you do at NDSC?
I am a Safety Consultant with the NDSC, and have worked in the oil and gas industry for 17 years. It is my goal to help give tools to people so they can go home to their families every night .

Why is NDSC’s mission to prevent injuries and save lives important to you?
The mission of the NDSC is important to me because I have personally seen the effects of people getting seriously injured, and it affects so many more people than just the individual that received the injury. It affects the person that was hurt, his family, his coworkers, his supervisors and many others.

What are your hobbies?
I love being outdoors, riding my motorcycle, hiking, fishing, hunting and camping.

If you could travel anywhere, where would it be and why?
Picking one place for me is impossible…I want to see the world.

What store would you pick to max out your credit card?
Cabela’s or Camping World. I love the outdoors and camping.

Who would play you in a movie?
Tom Cruise. I’ve been told that if my face was different and started working out I would look just like him.
