Each client is assigned to one dedicated Safety Professional. The Safety Professionals begins their engagement with a new client by becoming thoroughly familiar with every facet of the business. They also conduct a comprehensive study of accidents that occurred in past years, identify frequency patterns, and target for special attention the departments and employees with a higher-than-normal propensity for injuries.
When a company partners with SOS Safety Solutions, they obtain the services of a highly trained and experienced Safety Professional who becomes an extension of the employer. Each Safety Professional is assigned to a limited number of clients since a significant amount of time and attention are needed to reach these goals. This also ensures that our Safety Professionals are available when our clients need them.
The Synergy Of Safety® model is most effective when every member of the organization helps build the company’s safety culture. Our team provides initial training sessions for all managers and supervisors, during which we set clear expectations for both proactive and reactive safety behaviors. With the expectations set, clear accountability guidelines ensure that the safety program works. From the executive team, managers, supervisors, employees, and medical providers down to your SOS Safety Professional, everyone is accountable for their safety responsibilities. Improving the safety performance of your whole team and building a culture of safety are the result.
Once your customized loss prevention business plan has been implemented we continue to refine your culture of safety by using the SOS™ model to focus on the specific changes and challenges that are unique to your business and mitigate them which in turn reduce injuries.
Our experience tells us that having the right hiring and training systems will result in a more productive and safer workplace. As most companies grow, their hiring and training infrastructure doesn’t keep pace. Because of this, it is our goal to ensure that the right person is in the right role with the right skills every time. Our Safety Professionals use our proactive multi-stage process to make recommendations or work directly with you to implement the necessary changes to enhance your staff.

Creating an environment where employees feel safe leads them to be more productive and engaged. Having an established, safe work environment will ultimately lower your Workers’ Compensation premiums and increase profits.
Improving and enhancing workplace safety is our life’s mission. We believe it to be essential that all employees have the freedom to go to work, provide for themselves and their families, and to go home safely every day. Through our safety audits, we proactively identify hazards that can contribute to workplace injuries and we also work to prevent the chance of those injuries occurring through our implementation of sufficient safety solutions. We at SOS believe that hazard prevention requires proactive thinking and action, which is why our safety audits are so vital to our operations.
Additionally as a part of our process, we include an annual compliance safety inspection to ensure compliance to state and federal regulations. We also complete a fresh look inspection which serves to be a fresh set of eyes in the workplace and it helps to ensure our dedicated safety professional’s accountability to safety.
