Workplace accidents are a widespread problem and have been shown to affect organizational effectiveness, as well as employee health, safety and wellbeing. The International Labor Organization (ILO) pegs non-fatal occupational accidents at 317 million per year while those that are fatal stand at 321,000 per year.
A properly designed, implemented and managed safety program will always create a safer work environment. This translates into a high value of savings in terms of lost time, medical bills, environmental and property damages and related costs that’s far greater than the cost of the safety program.

Our Safety Consulting Division, New Generation Safety, led by Brooks Carder, PhD, and Pat Ragan, former VP of QHSE for Bayer, focuses on safe decision-making to effectively reduce both recordable accidents and low-frequency high-consequence events. The process, developed over a 20-year period, begins with a survey using your company data to understand the culture and systems that support safety. The process then moves to an interactive planning process and the development of an improvement plan.
The Safety Consulting Division provides cognitive science-based evaluation, coaching, training and education to enable individual sites to develop and implement improvement plans.
