Corey Martin, Founder and CEO of Spotlight Safety and Brew Safer, blends a unique combination of scientific research and EHS experience to provide organizations with high quality safety trainings, materials, and regulatory guidance. He believes well-established safety programs serve as the foundation for efficient, productive workplaces and is committed to helping safety professionals develop buy-in at all levels of an organization. Corey is a teacher at heart and understands the key to improving compliance lies in effective communication, “soft-skills”, and relationship building.
Prior to founding Spotlight Safety, Corey served as a Team Leader and Consulting Safety Officer at Safety Partners, where he managed a team of in-field consultants supporting clients in the biotech, life science, and manufacturing sectors. Before joining Safety Partners, he served as the Research Safety Officer at Dartmouth College, where he provided a wide-range of EHS oversight in biological, chemical, radiation, laser, and occupational safety, while also assisting with hazardous waste management and emergency preparedness. Corey has inspected hundreds of laboratory and manufacturing environments and has the stories to show for it.
Before pursuing a career in EHS, Corey earned a Bachelor’s degree in Biology with a Concentration in Cell and Molecular Biology and Biochemistry from Colby College and a Master’s degree in Immunology from Yale University. In addition to conducting bench research as part of his studies at Yale, Corey worked as a research technician at the Boston Children’s Hospital studying blood development and cancer in zebrafish
