We believe that the acceptable standard of performance in safety matters is to promote more than just a topical safety program. The Occupational Health & Safety program must be owned and backed by its people, who must embrace safe work practices and achieve zero accidents or injuries in every operational aspect.
Although First Choice Safety Solutions was officially founded in 2014, the company foundation was established long before with decades of public and private sector experience and a desire to bring safety to the next level.
Today, the company has grown from a two-person consulting firm to a total solutions company offering a variety of essential safety services focused on Critical Infrastructure Sectors such as Power Generation and Distribution, Industrial/Manufacturing, Water Treatment and Distribution, Emergency Services, and Defense. Our passion is helping your organization keep your employees and contractors safe. The company has recognized the critical need for industrial rescue services and has assembled one of the most competent and highly trained teams on the east coast. Our compliance training is updated and relevant to your employee's positions and overall program. The company brings the collective experience of industry professionals- all dedicated to helping you build and maintain a safety program that is deep-rooted in the belief we can go beyond minimum compliance.
There are ways to implement health & safety into the workplace to make it look compliant, but it does not necessarily mean you're preventing injuries. Instead of being topical about your program, we believe you have to be meaningful and always keep the idea of preventing injuries and incidents front and center. When you put employee safety above all else, you no longer need to worry about compliance because it will happen instinctively when your safety program is prevention-based.
First Choice Safety Solutions works to unite your organization's culture, people, services, and products under
a safety partnership that promotes safer behavior and best practices in all areas.
Creating a safety partnership among management, employees, and contractors that continually focuses people's attention and actions on their own and others' safety behavior is WHAT WE DO. We take the time to listen, understand, and immerse ourselves into our client's culture; becoming part of YOUR team helps us understand your needs and better assist in taking you to the next level of safety compliance.
We understand that people are our world's most important asset. Without knowledgeable and competent staff, we would be nothing. When you partner with First Choice Safety Solutions, you are partnering with our team of professionals who are here to help provide solution-based guidance to your team in a world of worksite problems.
When you need help with training or are planning to perform high-risk work in permit confined spaces, First Choice Safety Solutions is ready and capable to guide you to compliance and be there in case your employees need rescue. We are mission-driven. From overall safety program management to boots-on-the-ground behavioral-based coaching, First Choice Safety Solutions skilled team of professionals is here to help.
Products are an essential part of any business, and we take that seriously at our company. We only sell products that we use ourselves. That means high-quality brands that keep employees safe. We also make sure that the technology is compatible with the client's mission.
