Industrial Hygiene
These services are offered to identify, evaluate and ultimately help you control risks associated with personnel exposures. Evaluation of Respiratory Protection needs, assessment of volatile organic compounds in air, or monitoring for potential mold are a few services offered to reduce potential personnel exposure.

Loss Control & Claims Review
This process is a coordinated effort to analyze your loss history and trending over time to target the driving factors of your claims cost. Our professionals can help you lower your cost of risk by managing the frequency and severity of potential loss.

Slip & Fall Protection
Each year, over 1 million people are injured because of slips and falls on level surfaces. Many of these injuries are serious, including broken bones, twisted ankles and knees, muscle strains, cuts and head injuries. And some of these injuries are even fatal; an estimated 500 people die each year from slip and fall injuries. Slip and fall accidents contribute significantly to insurance and operational costs. Our slip and fall prevention program is targeted to address the direct and indirect costs of these accidents.

We have negotiated arrangements with proven vendors to offer special pricing and/or free unlimited access to risk management services for our clients.

Lab-Based Drug Screening: Urine Analysis

Fleet/Driver Safety Management

Driver’s Alert is a vehicle-monitoring program that encourages feedback from the public in a positive manner. Working as an early warning system through vehicle monitoring, fleet operators receive ongoing feedback regarding unsafe acts and at risk driving practices to identify those drivers that may need assistance. Driver’s Alert customers report reductions in accident frequency and DOT reportable accidents after implementing a vehicle-monitoring program.

Driver’s Alert Benefits

Operations: Reduced vehicle incidents correlate to reduced operating expenses, i.e., vehicle repairs, downtime, equipment replacement, personnel injures cargo losses and personnel recruiting.

Insurance: Insurance costs increase with accidents. Lower accident frequency and severity translates into lower insurance premiums.

Improved Efficiency: Reduced incident frequency increases on-time arrivals and overall downtime of vehicles and personnel. In addition, management’s time may be dedicated to operational profitability rather than completing police reports, accident investigations, insurance reports, etc.

Public Image: The display of Driver’s Alert decals promotes an increased awareness of safe driving techniques and safe driving habits by company drivers. This in turn increases public awareness of courteous behavior and the company’s commitment to safety.
