  • A Fortune 150 energy company reduced its injury rate by 67% within 18 months.
  • A Fortune 150 manufacturer reduced its lost workday rate by 97% within one year.
  • A top 20 construction company achieved significant safety improvements, including 90% of work sites experiencing no lost time incidents.
