MJS Safety was always a family business. When Michael Stookey founded MJS Safety in 1995, the company was originally started so he could have a bit of fishing money. As his business grew by word-of-mouth, he realized there was an ever-growing need to help small mom-and-pop businesses succeed in the ever-changing landscape of OSHA, MSHA, and FMCSA compliance. Mike's daughter, Carrie, joined the company in 2000 to assist Mike in helping clients with compliance and policy preparation. Carrie's husband, Jeremy, joined the company in 2010 to bring more DOT and field expertise to our clients. Their daughter, Brianna, joined the company in 2015, and the next generation of safety professionals was born.
As a family-run small business, our goal is to help protect the most valuable asset every company has - their employees. Our company belief is everyone goes home safe at the end of every day, and we work tirelessly to ensure that our clients have the resources to make that a reality!
When Michael passed away in 2021, Carrie and Jeremy wanted to carry on the 'Legacy' that Michael had started - helping small businesses, and the company transitioned to what it is today - Michael's 'Legacy'.
MJS Legacy Safety Consulting Services will continue to honor the 'Legacy' that Mike set before us for years to come.

OUR FOUNDER - Michael Stookey
A former United States Marine and Vietnam Veteran, Michael spent 21 years in the asphalt paving and sand & gravel heavy-haul industry before a truck accident changed his life and took him out of driving a truck, something that he dearly loved. After attending Front Range Community College to complete his AAS in Transportation & Materials Management, he attended Trinidad State Junior College to complete his AAS in Occupational Safety & Health. Mike started MJS Safety to provide Workplace Safety & DOT compliance services to small companies throughout Colorado in 1995. His focus was on providing quality safety solutions to fit the needs of a variety of companies in a variety of industries, including DOT-regulated companies, construction, underground utility & wet utility construction, sand & gravel mine employers, oil & gas operators and service companies, and many other companies. Michael's extensive knowledge of the trucking industry was sought after by many in the industries he worked in. When he was not on the road serving clients he could usually be found fishing. In February 2021 Mike passed away, transferring the management of MJS Safety on to Carrie and Jeremy. He always wanted to expand the family business, and the "legacy" he left behind is one of family. Those who knew him, worked with him, fished with him all have the same message - he was truly a one of a kind person and is deeply missed by his family and his friends.
Carrie has worked in the safety industry since 2000. She graduated from Trinidad State Junior College with an AAS in Occupational Safety & Health, and has completed many Professional Development and learning programs since finding her passion for safety. She has worked hard to promote safety in many different industries, through work with clients and volunteering on different safety committees and councils. She spends her time working with companies to find affordable safety and training solutions for today's industry requirements for both small and large companies, and to protect their most important asset - their employees. Carrie has been involved with the DJ Basin Safety Council in Fort Lupton, Colorado since 2010. She has served as Council Officer, Secretary, and current President. Carrie has also been a member of the National Utility Contractors Association Colorado Chapter Safety Committee, is the Secretary for the Colorado Damage Prevention Action team, and has served on numerous working committees and groups to promote safety in the workplace in Oil & Gas and Construction. In her spare time (when she has it) she is also very involved with her children, grandchildren, volunteering in the schools, serving as the elementary PTO president for 5 years, and is heavily involved with FFA, 4-H & the Weld County Fair.
Jeremy has worked in many different elements of construction, utility installation, driven small and large commercial vehicles, confined spaces, equipment maintenance, and evaluation. He is the "master of the mechanical stuff", and the go-to guy for technical questions, equipment location and servicing, confined space entry solutions, competent person for fall protection, and air monitor calibration and repair. Jeremy has been in safety since 2009. His extensive knowledge of how things work on the job site and off, as well as his determined problem-solving skills are a great asset to our company and our clients. Jeremy has been involved with the DJ Basin Safety Council since 2011, building and maintaining the Council website, and has served as an officer for the past 4 years. When not at work, Jeremy is also heavily involved with his children and their school activities. He is also an avid bow hunter, and spends a great deal of time in the Colorado high country in the fall.
