Cameron Ruppe spent his young life planning to become a firefighter, and to that end, earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Emergency Services Administration with an emphasis in Emergency Medical Care from Utah Valley University. After working several years as an EMT, responding to many emergency calls and accidents, he found a new passion when he was offered work as a safety professional in the oil and gas industry. He found that he was able to help employers and employees to work safely and prevent accidents in a historically dangerous line of work. During this time, he also earned a Master of Education from Utah State University. In 2017, he was appointed by Utah Labor Commissioner, Jaceson Maughan, as the Director of UOSH. He currently resides in Lehi with his wonderful wife Courtney and their four children: Takoma, Mckinley, Stockton, and Rockwell.
