Safety Consultants

 

  • Alexis Westin, Safety Management Consultant



    Behavioral based safety, efficiency, and knowledge of the body mechanics of a job are all keys to an effective and proactive safety management system for any company. It is key to develop a system that works for the entity as a whole, while still maintaining a focus on the employee’s personal safety as well as the safety of their fellow employees. 

    Having a proactive approach to safety by creating an efficient system will remove unnecessary exposure to back strains and slip trip and fall hazards, while promoting employee productivity. Paying attention to the body mechanics of all job functions is an important part of running a program efficiently. This attention to detail can benefit both the employee and employer alike by decreasing fatigue and increasing the overall productivity of the business. 


    Alexis has over 10 years of experience in providing safety management in the insurance industry. She has worked in a variety of industries from hospitals and construction, to non-profit organizations. In this time Alexis has worked in New England, the South, South West, and the Midwest.
