Brownsville Marine’s Journey To Adopt The Synergy of Safety Model The Initial Road To Safety, Part III

Brownsville Marine is a leading manufacturer of marine vessels located on the Monongahela River in Brownsville, PA. As you can imagine  creating a safe work environment was a big challenge for a company that has hundreds of employees, complicated and dangerous equipment and large manufacturing pieces. Tim Scheib came on board as President & CEO in 2009 of Brownsville Marine and he immediately engaged in a safety program that helped keep the workers safe and more efficiency in the manufacturing plant.

Synergy Comp partnered with Brownsville Marine from 2008-2009 and again in 2012-current. During this time, Synergy and Brownsville worked together to create a culture of safety that has several positive benefits which include:

  • Reduced experience mod
  • Reduced workers comp insurance premium
  • Fewer workplace injuries
  • Decrease in paid and incurred amount of claims
  • Less management and supervisor time spent on managing and maintaining claim related issues

 

Tim Scheib puts it best by saying “Synergy is our true partner. They are motivated and invested in the same exact thing we are; limiting, preventing and efficiently handling workplace accidents. With this partnership we could focus on running our business knowing our partner is working with us to help minimize costly claims. When we left Synergy, we quickly realized how good they were and returned 2 years later.”

The results are real:
