Being the owner of a company that operates in safety, for years friends and family constantly ask me, “What is it again you do for a living – you teach safety classes and rescue people from towers or tanks?”
Although, in the last fifteen months, everyone has increased their knowledge and become more evolved as it relates to safety in some fashion. Words and acronyms such as “face mask”, “PPE” (Personal Protective Equipment), and “N95’s” have all been introduced to our vocabulary.
Our locally based business, Med-Tex Services, has been servicing the region for over 30 years. We provide safety, health, rescue support services and equipment to contractors, manufacturing plants, utilities, educational facilities, healthcare, and more.
A safe workplace is not only required as well as governed by agencies like the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) but extends to a moral obligation to employees and the families that depend on them. When asked who our biggest competitor is, that answer is “non-compliance”.
There is a certain element of satisfaction and joy for our team when we see our initiatives make an impact on an organization’s safety success.
Med-Tex Services has done many community events and talks over the years at schools and associations to bring awareness to the safety industry and related career opportunities.
Most recently, Med-Tex Services was a seed sponsor at an event at Diggerland USA theme park in New Jersey where workers could come learn about construction safety with their families!
We had over 600 attendees that enjoyed fire extinguisher demonstrations, rescue from work at heights drills, excavation safety equipment installation, and more.
