Safety isn’t always simple. It can be a significant challenge, especially in environments where technology evolves much more quickly than many of the people using it on a daily basis can adapt to.

ESi’s trained and certified safety experts work with companies, attorneys, and courts to help them understand these complexities, and to achieve optimal solutions that keep people safe during their everyday work.

The members of our safety team work with companies to reduce the costs of accidents, product liability claims, workers compensation, and OSHA violations, often by collaborating with them to design and market safer products and label them with more effective warnings and other safety information. We also help our clients comply with OSHA regulations, and when necessary, work with them to remediate or contest OSHA violations.

Our team is made up of engineers and safety experts with a broad range of experience in safety issues, ranging from proactive risk assessment and design review, to accident reconstruction and forensic investigation. Many have first-hand experience with managing product safety and employee safety programs, giving them the experience necessary to help our clients make day-to-day decisions that will improve safety conditions for their employees and buyers of their products.

Our team members are fluent in federal, state, and local safety codes, as well as domestic and international consensus standards, including European Union (CE) standards and directives. Many members of our team also hold leadership positions on the committees that maintain those codes and standards, including the ANSI A14 standards on Ladder Safety, ANSI B11 standards on Machinery Safety, and ISO 12643 standards on Printing and Paper Converting Equipment.
