D.C. Gum

Safety Director

Growing up around the family dairy farm instilled a love of the land that D.C. brings to his own small farm today. The construction tips he gleans from his visits to Hourigan’s job sites come in handy as he works through his never-ending list of improvements.

Safety Director D.C. Gum has more than 30 years of experience in occupational safety. His ability to not only find and correct job site safety issues, but to foresee and mitigate potential issues are critical to Hourigan’s excellent safety performance. A certified OSHA Outreach Trainer, D.C. provides safety training to the company workforce as well as serving as a guest speaker and trainer for our partners.

A graduate of Fairmont State College with a B.S. degree in Safety Engineering Technology, D.C. previously served as an Officer in the U.S. Navy aboard the USS Whidbey Island.
