Amy started Safety Buzz as a one woman show. She expanded the company to 3 locations and mentored many team members over the years.
Amy now resides in Dunmore with her family. Along with her husband Sheldon, Amy owns and trains at the Safety Buzz Campus in Dunmore. Amy is passionate about the company safety and instructing. So much actually that she decided to become a certified leadership speaker, trainer & coach through the John Maxwell Team.
Amy is extremely proud of the company achievements which include a lot of community involvement and awards such as the 2020 MHD Chamber Award of Excellence and Business Ethics, 2019 Alberta Awards of Distinction nominee, 2018 Chamber Award for Small Business of the Year and Marketing and Action Coach CEO of the year.
Keep your eye on Amy to see what is happening next!
Campus. You can find Sheldon cracking jokes with the team, in his office analysing numbers thinking of ways to improve on systems and in the classroom.
Sheldon came on as a partner of Safety Buzz in 2011. He took the place of COO and soon overcame his fears and began instructing. Sit in one of Sheldon's courses & you would never know he was reluctant to teach as he is a natural instructor! Sheldon is humerous, clear and consise and takes the time to ensure everyone understands the safety material. Sheldon's past work as a manager & operator at CCS/Tervita as well as other oil & gas/construction related work positions set Sheldon up well with tons of practical experience to compliment his courses.
Sheldon has lived in Medicine Hat since 2010. Sheldon loves the outdoors and spends tons of time with his family enjoying sports and recreational activities. Sheldon is a real family man, spending time with his wife and 3 boys and his extended family as much as possible. On his offtime Sheldon is often found tinkering in the garage, backyard or improving things at the Campus.
What would we do without Sheldon??
Karen has proven herself as a dedicated team player and puts all she has into the Buzz Campus. As administrative manager Karen oversees the day to day office operations and keeps things running smooth!

-> What does Safety Management & Fractional Safety Mean to you as an NCSO?
Safety management for an NCSO is the ability to guide and direct a safety program and provide a safe working culture for everyone. You get to shape and provide the groundwork needed to get everyone home at the end of the day safely which is the ultimate goal. With positive coaching you can change behaviours, culture and mindsets. Safety first.
Cory keeps the Buzz Campus fun and posititive. If you haven't spoken or met with Cory yet, what are you waiting for. Stop by for a coffee or vitual meeting anytime!
