Bob Pearson

Bob Pearson has been addressing environmental safety mainly at the industrial level since 1975. Over the years his expertise has been applied to the development of various products that are now available to the general public. Several government agencies have relied on him and his team to make recommendations to elevate safety and reduce slips and falls. Workplace and in-home slip and fall prevention is a major concern to him. He truly believes that by taking a few minutes to review, identify and eliminate potential hazards we can all benefit. He is now and has been the President of Kimmel of Canada for the past six years. Prior to that he was in partnership with his now 79-year-old father. Their business was developed and based on providing quality products and services that were of great value. To this day he will tell you that he treats people in the way he would like his mother and father treated and that he expects that same commitment on the part of all his staff and dealers.
