Mississippi Lime Co. (MLC) appointed Ryan Seelke as its new director of safety.

Seelke will focus on proactive risk-based safety practices, leadership and training, the company says.

Prior to joining MLC, Seelke worked at Doe Run as a leader in its safety department. He also owned and led a private legal practice, specializing in mine safety law.

Seelke’s focus has been on creating risk-based safety cultures and programs in organizations.

“Safety is critically important,” he says. “I hold safety as a value and chose to do this over practicing law. In this position, I have the opportunity to ensure that employees work safely and go home safely to their families.”

Seelke has an MBA from St. Louis University, a law degree from Washington University and an economics degree from the University of Central Missouri. He is also pursuing a master’s degree in occupational safety management from the University of Central Missouri.

Additionally, Seelke is a Mine Safety & Health Administration-certified trainer. MLC says he has educated and developed a number of managers, supervisors and safety representatives.

MLC, headquartered in St. Louis, is a global supplier of high-calcium lime products and technical solutions. The company supplies high-calcium quicklime, hydrated lime, calcium carbonate products, trucking services and technical solutions from facilities in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri; Calera, Alabama; Verona, Kentucky; Vicksburg, Mississippi; Weirton, West Virginia; Chester, South Carolina; Mobile, Alabama; Prairie du Rocher, Illinois; Bridgeville, Pennsylvania; and Kansas City, Kansas. MLC also has several distribution sites throughout the U.S.
