Safety Coordinator

Joe is Metzgers first ever Safety Coordinator and an active member of the Safety Committee. His main objective as Safety Coordinator is to make sure Metzgers meets and maintains OSHA requirements. He also ensures that Metzgers is up to current fire codes with each fire inspection, and keeps up to date training for operating forklifts and performing CPR.

Before coming to Metzgers, Joe was a member of the fire service and a FEMA certified Safety Officer. He hails from a full family of fire fighters, with a brother who is a lieutenant in the TFRD (Toledo Fire & Rescue Department) and a father who is the TFRD Fire Chief. With a background in safety and rescue work, a lineage of safety workers, a number of certifications, and an attitude to never stop learning and improving; Joe is the perfect man for the Safety Coordinator position.

Joe is a firearm enthusiast who loves to go out and shoot targets. He is best known as a passionate Michigan Wolverines fan. Columbus is the last place you are going to find this guy. When he asks who your favorite college football team is, make sure to change the subject unless you share his maize and blue pride.
