Safety Advantage is based in 7210 Bayway Drive, in Baytown, Texas. The company was formed in 1990 at a time when many Texas businesses were searching for help in building practical, effective safety programs for high-risk industries. Many could no longer afford workers’ compensation insurance and had opted to non-subscribe from the state’s workers’ compensation system.
Without the statutory on-the-job injury liability protection provided by workers’ compensation, these employers found themselves in an especially “exposed” situation. Their need for maintaining safe and accident-free workplaces, combined with strict compliance and liability for on-site sick and injured employees escalated as an urgent priority.
Safety Advantage was born out of a desire to help employers dramatically reduce on-the-job incidents, injuries and losses, continued education and job site audits for a safe, healthy and vigilent workforce.
Companies that had literally been driven out of the workers’ compensation system due to injury losses found that they could achieve incredible reductions of as much as 75% to 95% through dedicated in-house safety. Safety training programs dramatically reduced both the frequency and severity of on-the-job injuries, raising morale at all levels of the organization, and improving quality of products and services.
Safety Advantage is proud of the successes and results our dedicated safety training programs have helped our clients realize, and the results they’ve achieved. As the Texas workers’ compensation market improves, and rates became much more competitive for employers with good safety records and low loss runs, the priority of safety, in-house accident prevention and incident response has not changed, employers throughout the state of Texas have, and continue to, depend on our workplace safety training programs .
Safety Advantage has grown to an organization of management and support staff working in coordination with a cadre of Certified Safety Professionals, Certified Industrial Hygienists, bilingual and special-skills trainers.
This organization and teamwork among project management, professional and support staff help ensure that clients in a specialized industry will be supported by qualified consultants and on-site associates.
When we are directly responsible for managing on-site safety programs, the client can have confidence that they are supported by back-up as well as primary assignment personnel.
