Whitney Short  

Hi! My name is Whitney Short. A little over 2 years ago, my husband was killed on the job due to shortcuts in safety procedure. After his tragic death, I started the Jeff Short Jobsite Safety Foundation in his honor to tell others about the importance of

Electrician Jeff Short was a husband and father who lost his life on the job when he was electrocuted. He was installing pedistal lights on a flagpole when the power came on unexpectedly. This tragedy could have been prevented if the proper safety procedures had been in place and enforced. The next day, his wife talked to his employer about ways to prevent this tragedy from happening to other families.

Learn the importance of jobsite safety with moving presentations given by Jeff Short Job Site Safety Foundation. Our presentations are applicable for any industry and bring safety statistics to life by sharing the story of Jeff Short and his surviving family. During the presentation, our founder will talk about Jeff's accident and the true consequences that her family has experienced, which will inspire people to stop and think about safety procedures and their importance on the job. Contact us for more information about our safety video and the upcoming series that will soon be available for purchase.
