The Heart of Your Business: Why the Right “Investment” Can Make All the Difference

In the intricate dance of running a successful business, your employees are the heartbeat, the driving force that propels your company forward. Their safety and well-being should be at the forefront of your priorities, not just for ethical reasons, but because a safe workforce is an efficient and productive one. At Hellman & Associates, we understand the heartbeat of your business, and we offer more than just services – we offer an investment in the safety and prosperity of your employees.

Investing in Your Most Valuable Asset: Your Employees

The success of any business is intricately tied to the health and happiness of its workforce. Your employees are the heart and soul of your operations, and their well-being directly impacts productivity, morale, and the overall success of your company. Investing in safety is not just a compliance requirement; it is a strategic move to protect your most valuable asset.

When you choose Hellman & Associates, you’re not just outsourcing EHS compliance management; you’re investing in a comprehensive safety program that goes beyond meeting regulatory standards. Our approach is rooted in a delicate balance – we blend regulatory compliance and risk management with internal cost savings, timely service, and a touch of common sense.

The ASSUREDCompliance® Advantage

In 2005, we introduced the ASSUREDCompliance® program, an annual partnership that guarantees compliance with OSHA and other regulatory agencies. The success of this program speaks volumes, with an impressive 98% renewal rate. This isn’t just a service; it’s a commitment to providing you with the peace of mind that comes from knowing your workplace is safe, secure, and compliant.

Our dedication to safety took a significant step in 2010 when Hellman & Associates became one of just three consultancies in the country to achieve the OSHA Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP) Star Site Status. This elite status is not just a badge of honor; it’s a testament to our commitment to helping our clients achieve a workplace with 50% fewer workplace injuries.

For over two decades, we’ve been helping our partners target zero incidents. Today, we proudly serve over 500 clients across the United States. Our services go beyond mere compliance – we provide strategy, management, and technical expertise to develop environmental health and safety programs that withstand the scrutiny of regulatory agencies.

Case Study: Coblaco Services, Inc.

Consider the case of Coblaco Services, Inc., a Colorado-based industrial coating company with over 30 years of experience and more than 10 million work hours. With a portfolio including major league sports stadiums, power generation plants, and bridges, Coblaco faced a challenge. Their workers’ comp mod rate was steadily increasing, posing a significant expense to the company.

The challenge was not unique. Many small businesses, like Coblaco, lack the budget for a full-time environmental health and safety (EHS) position. However, management, despite recognizing the importance of safety, often lacks the time or qualifications to implement a comprehensive program.

In this scenario, Coblaco made a strategic decision by hiring Hellman & Associates to provide ASSUREDCompliance® annual contract services. The goal was clear – identify and remedy program gaps and manage their EHS program effectively.

Hellman & Associates conducted an EHS and Department of Transportation (DOT) audit when Coblaco acquired a new company without a safety program. They seamlessly onboarded new employees to the safety culture that H&A had helped cultivate over the past decade.

The results were transformative:

  • Coblaco’s workers’ comp mod rate dropped from 1.39 to 0.67, the lowest in the company’s 30-year history.
  • Colorado cost containment certification was achieved and maintained.
  • Accidents in the workplace reduced significantly.
  • The organization achieved buy-in at all levels with the Zero-In on Safety program.
  • Coblaco could bid on more and larger projects, expanding their business opportunities.
