SAFETY DEPARTMENT

Our Safety Department is led by our Safety/Risk Manager Deborah Gentile, who oversees nine Safety Technicians. Deborah Gentile previously worked as a Senior Catastrophic Workers’ Compensation Examiner. Our Safety Department is on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. When a work related injury is reported to us, we immediately dispatch one of our Safety Technicians to pick up our Employee and bring our Employee to the Industrial Physician. Our Safety Technicians complete all the legally required paperwork for filing the Workers’ Compensation Claim; continue to bring our Employees to and from all doctor appointments, physical therapy appointments and any diagnostic appointments.

 

Our Safety Team provides excellent training per Cal/OSHA standards. We provide a copy of the signed Safety Training Attendance Roster to our Clients. All of our Employees that are hired as Heavy Laborers or Operate Machinery (e.g. Forklifts, Tractor’s, Feeders, Front Loaders, and ATV’s) must pass a Drug and Alcohol Test and pass a Pre-Employment Physical. Our Safety Technicians oversee this process.
