Ron Butcher’s passion for safety can be traced back to his childhood when, as a curious 3-year-old armed with his sister’s hairpin and unfettered access to the outlets of their home, he discovered the world might not be as safe as he’d been led to believe. As seasoned strategist and leader, Ron draws on more than 30 years of experience within the high-risk industries of aviation search & rescue, maritime transportation and electrical power generation toward the creation and maintenance of safe working conditions under the harshest of conditions.  Believing the “human factor” is key to maintaining production reliability and operational resilience for the creation of what has been called “dynamic non-events.”  Ron is the author of “Cruise Control: Your Peace of Mind at Sea,” the first and only consumer-centric guide for managing personal safety while on the water.  For his contributions toward the creation, training, and implementation of the Helicopter Rescue Swimmer program, in 2016, Ron was inducted into the United States Coast Guard Aviation Association’s “Hall of Honor.”
