BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.
To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.
To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.
The eleventh 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, and there is no charge to be included.
To be listed, consultants must offer 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, companies are required to provide information on gross revenues, and only firms that generate $200,000 or more in revenues from safety consulting are listed.
Listings begin with the company's address, phone and fax numbers and World Wide Web site address. 1997 staff information is then listed, including the number of professionals assigned to each of the following: safety, occupational health and industrial hygiene consulting. 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.
The clients section includes the total number of safety clients in 1997, and, of those, the number of corporate and institutional safety consulting clients. Listed next are the company's 1997 gross revenues from safety consulting services directly to corporate or institutional employers, excluding third-party vendors.
The next section of each listing contains the year founded and parent company. In addition, the company's safety consulting services and other services related to safety are detailed.
Particular types of business or industry in which the company specializes are listed under the specialties heading. Locations of branch offices providing safety consulting services are listed next, and the service area details the states or regions served. Officers and a contact name conclude each listing.
Although every effort is made to publish complete and accurate listings, BI is unable to verify all information provided by the companies.
