Our Safety Services department is here for the sole purpose of helping Shafer Customers. Our goal is to help you develop and maintain a Safety Culture within your organization that will help ensure that hazardous situations are identified and that all of your employees go home safely at the end of the day.


Facility / Jobsite Safety Visits

Our staff is available to visit your facility or jobsite to evaluate it from both an OSHA compliance and insurance risk point of view.  Keep in mind that OSHA compliance does not address common liability and property issues, and insurance loss control does not always take into consideration OSHA requirements. We want to help identify and eliminate hazards from all of these areas.


Program Development

We realize that developing any program is not easy.  We help customers develop and improve programs to better fit their needs. Some of the most common programs include:

Safety Program Development
We help you determine the specific topics that should be addressed in your safety program and the structure you need in place to help you reach your safety program goals.
Drug-Free Workplace Program Development
We can help you through the process of becoming a Certified Tennessee Drug-Free Workplace.
Early Return to Work Programs
Returning injured employees to work as soon as possible is critical when it comes to helping ensure a speedy recovery and keeping workers’ compensation claim’s costs low. We can help you implement a program that will save money, reduce lost workdays and discourage fraudulent Workers Compensation claims
