With Black Box Safety, customers can protect their most valuable resource—people—by supplying safety products, consultation, and education tailored to the organization’s needs. Black Box provides a single source of documented risk assessment, product consultation and delivery, custom-written policies, and training while capturing market share through the SDVOSB advantage.
Black Box Safety product sales begin with an organization-wide risk analysis using validated risk analysis methods recommended by National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health and Centers for Disease Control (Appendices 9: CDC NIOSH Risk Matrix) (Centers for Disease Control, 2003). The documented analysis determines which safety products will be required to reduce the organization’s risk to an acceptable level. Commonly recommended PPE includes fall protection harnesses, lanyards, and lifelines; fall rescue equipment; fall prevention guardrails and warning lines.
Black Box Safety gives companies timely access to expertise that existing staff may lack time or skills to supply. It counters the tendency toward one-size-fits-all solutions created when safety managers, who typically make equipment purchase decisions, lack time or knowledge to conduct effective risk assessments or evaluate highly technical products and rely instead on recommendations from distributors of safety equipment. Distributors, who do not have daily experience with the company, rely on manufacturers’ reps for product recommendations, but reps are two degrees distant from the company’s actual needs and primarily focused on sales. As each person looks to another for crucial information, detail is lost, increasing the potential for money wasted on solutions that go
unused or, worse, provision of insufficient or even incorrect solutions, leading to safety failures.
Black Box Safety offers a board-certified safety professional, specialized in designing and implementing custom safety solutions, to disrupt this cycle. Combining on-the-ground knowledge of the client’s needs with a validated risk assessment tool, Black Box helps organizations build systems and select safety products to protect employees and avoid problems.
Black Box Safety is also authorized by manufacturers to distribute the following safety equipment including eye, face, and head protection; hearing protection; respiratory protection, hand protection, foot protection, and high-visibility garments such as vests and jackets. safety apparel that provides protection from electrical energy (arc flash and arc blast), fire and heat, punctures and cuts, and bloodborne pathogens.
