We are greatly saddened by the loss of Kelly in 2019. Kelly was by far one of the best safety professionals. She was an amazing person with one of the biggest hearts in the world. We would like to share a tribute written by Gary Smith as it truly sums up who Kelly was.
"Kelly was a big part of my start with OSEA. She was my first friend at OSEA. She showed me how to have fun, and be proud of what we do at OSEA. She showed me ice cream and beer really do go together. She helped me learn .... care for the men/women first, apply the rules second.....
Her tenacity and strength were shown in her success as a women Safety Pro in a tough predominately male construction world. All who worked with her, respected her. Her strength and tenacity shown even more in her battle with cancer. She believed she would beat it, and if you knew Kelly you believed it too." - Gary
It was an honor and a privilege to have Kelly on our team, may she rest in peace. God Bless.
