Split second decisions, can change your life and your family’s lives forever. Brandon Schroeder, an experienced electrician of over 19 years, understands how a moment of poor judgment can echo throughout a lifetime. On August 24, 2011, Brandon survived an arc flash explosion — an explosion that should have wielded fatal results.

Brandon walks guests through his hauntingly relatable, life changing afternoon. In order to help you avoid the same mistake, Brandon will share his thought processes, discuss how industry standards have evolved, show you pictures of exactly what went wrong, and explain his recovery. Whether you work with electricity or not, this presentation will benefit you. Everyone has decisions to make about safety — many of them happen in an instant. If you have the wrong safety habits, you increase the chances of choosing the wrong decision—which can have affects that are impossible to undo.
