The tenth annual directory of safety consultants lists companies that provide services such as advice on employee safety, assistance in developing safety programs, safety audits and evaluations, employee training classes and safety research.
Information for the directory was gathered from responses to a Business Insurance questionnaire. The directory is published as an editorial service; there is no charge to be included.
To be listed consultants must offer their services directly to employers on an unbundled basis; companies that offer safety consulting only in conjunction with other products and services are not included. In addition, to be included companies are required to provide gross revenues; only firms that generate $200,000 or more in revenues from safety consulting are listed.

The number of staff members who belong to the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) also is included. All staff figures are reported in full-time equivalents.
