Rod Courtney, CHST, CUSP, WCLS
Rod began his career in the US military. He served as an Army Combat Medic from 1990-1994 on active duty and 1994-1998 in the reserves. While on reserve status he worked in law enforcement and attended college at Armstrong Atlantic State University and Columbia Southern University where he studied Occupational Health & Safety. Rod has been a Certified Safety Technician for 25 years and became a CUSP in 2019. After working for a couple different companies Rod went to Iraq with Kellogg Brown & Root in 2003 and was the HS&E Manager for the largest construction project on the planet. In 2007 Rod went to work in the renewable energy sector building thousands of megawatts of wind turbines and solar plants across the country. He ultimately became the Director of HSS&E for one of the largest renewable energy construction companies in the US. In 2012 this company merged with another and he decided to start his own safety consulting and staffing firm. Our Safety Guy, LLC was a leader in providing HSE Professionals to wind and solar project across the US. After some soul-searching Rod and his wife Christi decided to sell the company and find “the perfect fit” with a growing company that had the potential to become a leader in Occupational Health & Safety. He is now the HSE Manager for Ampirical who is one of the fastest growing companies in the US.
