Rick Lupul, CRSP

Rick has been a contract trainer for AMHSA since 1999, specializing in equipment operator, ATV/UTV training as well as most course offerings AMHSA provides. 

Rick is a Canadian Registered Safety Professional and was the first person to achieve the Municipal Health and Safety Advisor designation from AMHSA when the program was first introduced.  In 2006 Rick completed the University of Alberta’s Safety Certificate Program.

Rick started working for Rocky View County in 2010 and is currently a Fire Captain at Springbank Fire station. Prior to working for the County, Rick worked for the Town of Cochrane from 1997 to 2010 where he started in Operations as an operator and quickly worked his way into the Health and Safety Coordinators position. Rick then developed the town’s health and safety management system. Rick also sat on the Calgary Regional Utility Damage Prevention Committee for 10 years. Prior to working for the town Rick worked as an equipment operator for a large landscape contractor working around buried infrastructure in the Calgary area.

Prior to moving to Calgary in 1988 Rick grew up on a small farm east of Edmonton and worked operating equipment, working for gravel crushing contractor and for a large manufacturing plant in the Redwater area.

Rick brings his life experiences to his sessions and shares them in a unique way through his humor and stories. What’s worked and what hasn’t in relation to Health and Safety in general.  

In his spare time Rick enjoys the outdoor pursuits and his motorbikes. It’s not uncommon to see him show up to teach a session riding his bike!
