Over the course of his thirty-five year career in public safety, Marc Yeston has worked as a flight paramedic, a federal and state law enforcement officer, a firefighter, a ski patroller, a National Park Service Chief Ranger, a wilderness guide, an educator and a pilot. The bulk of his career was spent leading emergency and search & rescue operations at the busiest inland search & rescue venue in the country—Grand Canyon National Park.
Over those years, Marc has had daily opportunities to practically apply the principles of High Reliability and New View Safety in high-intensity environments.
Now a retired chief ranger, Marc serves as a presenter, instructor and consultant in Human & Organizational Performance, Safety Differently, Operational Learning and Wilderness Emergency Medicine. He has provided training to companies and organizations involved in high-hazard, high-value work ranging from high-voltage utility workers, mariners at sea, production floor employees, aviators, managers, supervisors and even astronauts. Marc works regularly with leaders in the field including Dr. Todd Conklin of Los Alamos National Laboratory Bob Edwards the “HOP Coach” and Andrea Baker the “HOP Mentor.”
Marc engages workers and leaders with dramatic stories from his world of high-hazard work. Participants come away with a new appreciation for the complexities workers face every day but more importantly, they come away with a new vocabulary and fresh insights relevant to making their own worlds safer, more productive and so much better.
