“John “Grizzy” Grzywacz, Professor Emeritus – OSHA National Training Institute
“Grizzy”, as he likes to be called has been recognized by OSHA’s National Office in Washington D.C. as both a National Electrical Code (NEC®) historian as well as “the best electrical safety trainer in the country!” Certainly at the very least Grizzy has been OSHA’s electrical safety “go-to guy” and has been instrumental in shaping and interpreting OSHA policy and regulations for several decades.
Grizzy has trained OSHA compliance officers, appeared as OSHA’s electrical expert, and guided literally hundreds and hundreds of electrical fatality investigations. Grizzy continues to train OSHA compliance officers and personnel coast to coast, as well as still providing investigative assistance to the Agency on fatality investigations and significant cases.
Licensed by the Department of Education, and prior to his OSHA career, Grizzy had been both an educator and administrator for various public and private schools and held the position of Electronic Department Chairman and Director of Education at a New York City proprietary school.
In addition to being a professional speaker and nationally recognized seminar leader with over 40,000 hours of platform experience, Grizzy has lectured at numerous colleges and universities all across the US and has numerous published works in video and print which have assisted safety professionals and helped workers for decades.
Recognized nationally as preeminent in regulatory electrical safety training, Grizzy conducts training all across the country providing insight into navigating the complex regulatory requirements.
Recently Grizzy has been presenting unique and spectacular high voltage keynote presentations at conventions, demonstrating some of the rare and unique electrical artifacts and high voltage apparatus which he has been collecting for decades.
