Total Safety Named One of America’s Safest Companies

November 13, 2018

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 13, 2018--Total Safety, the world’s leading provider of integrated safety services, has been named one of America’s Safest Companies for 2018 by EHS Today, the magazine for environmental, health and safety leaders. Winners were selected by the editors of the magazine and will be featured in the November issue. Companies are only eligible to receive the award every five years; this is the second consecutive time Total Safety has received this accolade. The Company also received this award in 2013.

Total Safety was acknowledged for its transformational EHS leadership, practices, and results across the entirety of its business. The company’s year-to-date Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) is more than 90 percent below the industry average, and 99% of Total Safety locations have not had a significant HSE incident in 2017 or 2018. The company has also earned 16 new OSHA Voluntary Protection Plan (VPP) Star sites since 2015, bringing its total number of OSHA VPP Star sites to 27.

Total Safety leads the market by consistently introducing innovative technologies that transform how organizations protect their workers and meet their compliance obligations. New technology solutions such as Total Safety’s Centralized Confined Space Monitoring and Connected Worker offerings integrate multiple technologies to connect workers and equipment to a central monitoring platform. Both offerings allow data collection to make a meaningful difference in the way customers run their business, with key benefits including meeting compliance and regulatory requirements, increasing employee health and safety, boosting productivity, and reducing downtime.

“This award is reflective of Total Safety’s commitment to being the preeminent global provider of integrated industrial safety services, equipment and compliance solutions,” said George Ristevski, Total Safety CEO. “Uncompromising safety standards coupled with our new technologies are helping us to deliver the most advanced safety programs available to workers and also reducing operating costs for our customers. We are setting the standard for what companies should demand from safety providers.”

America’s Safest Companies, founded in 2002, is a corporate award honoring the safest companies in the United States who have achieved innovative and strategic safety goals. Since 2002, only 235 companies have made the list due to their commitment to employee safety and health, environment management and risk control.
