Chad Hymas, a best-selling author and motivational speaker, speaks to employees of the South Dakota Department of Transportation during their regional Safety Awareness Day in Mitchell Tuesday morning at the Davison County 4-H Fairgrounds. In 2001, Hymas’ neck was shattered by a 2,000-pound bale of hay, leaving him a quadriplegic. Hymas spoke to the group about creating a safe work environment by making your co-workers part of your family and putting family first. The Department of Transportation and Graphic Packaging International of Mitchell partnered with Hendrickson Trailer Commercial Vehicle Systems, Toshiba America Business Solutions, Beck and Hofer Construction and Morris Equipment to host Hymas.
