We are determined to impress you every step of the way and Guarantee your satisfaction. Part of that process is by holding ourselves accountable for only the highest quality standards, constantly adapting and innovating, ask and truly listen to our customers experiences, feedback, and impressions of our products, and perhaps most importantly, always consider how we treat others and our environment.
Safety product suppliers have never seemed people centered. Generally, safety supplies aren’t produced with the intention of making life better for the people using the products either. We exist to not only provide premium quality industrial safety products that meet or exceed government standards, but also to deliver innovative solutions that equally consider the experience of the user. We want you to think of us a your partner that you actually enjoy.

SAFETY AUTHOR, TEACHER, CONSULTANT
Jennifer Busick earned her B.S., with a major in industrial hygiene, from Purdue University and a Master’s in Public Health from the University of South Carolina. She has been writing about workplace safety and health for two decades. Her work has appeared in print and online in the Safety Compliance Letter, Safety Now, Industrial Safety & Hygiene News, Safety Management, Maintenance Management, GoHealthNow, 7-Minute Safety Trainer, eHealthcare Strategy and Trends, Safety Daily Advisor, EHS Daily Advisor, and other places. She has written special supplements for Business and Legal Reports on ergonomics, workplace violence prevention, workplace hazard assessment, and biohazards in the workplace, and has written twenty white papers for BLR and for Industrial Safety & Hygiene News/Avetta on environmental health and safety, corporate culture, and sustainability. Busick was the editor of the Cal/OSHA Compliance Advisor for twelve years, until it ceased publication in 2017. She has published six books on safety and health in the workplace. Two are still in print: the OSHA Compliance Guide for Medical Employers and the OSHA Training Guide for Medical Employers, available from Blue Gavel Press.
In addition, Busick has spoken to professional groups on health and safety subjects, and has extensive experience designing and presenting safety and health training programs for private employers. She has worked as an independent safety and health professional and also as an instructor for Blue Ridge Community College in North Carolina, Midlands Technical College in South Carolina, and the University of South Carolina in Columbia, South Carolina.
When she’s not brewing another book, article, or presentation, Busick volunteers with the Child Life program at her local hospital, reads a lot of science fiction and nonfiction, and tries to keep up with her two daughters—one is a theater kid, and the other is a basketball player, so she never lacks for things to do on the weekend.
