Expert's Profile

Led by Michael J. Fagel, Ph.D., Certified Emergency Manager (CEM), Aurora Safety enhances and supplies workplace safety plans, training and audits; provides expert testimony for safety-related court cases; and delivers keynote addresses on vital safety topics.

With us as your accessible advisory partners, you gain the knowledge and procedures to promote a culture of safety and help prevent losses and accidents.

Mike’s career includes deployments for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), law enforcement, emergency medical services, fire rescue and emergency management, and compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA). He has further served as an elected public-safety official.

He joined the safety profession when OSHA was still in its infancy. Growing in experience as it grew, he formed a full perspective of how the agency influences both small and large businesses. He has both helped OSHA develop regulations and defended companies from strict statutes by educating them about the OSHA system and the safety field.

Always one to connect and communicate with people, Mike teaches graduate programs in public policy focused on anti-terrorism, critical infrastructure and homeland security at the Illinois Institute of Technology, Northern Illinois University and Aurora (Illinois) University.

He has worked as an instructor in homeland security and training at Argonne National Laboratory (U.S. Department of Energy ) since 2004 as well.
