“Without safe and healthy employees we wouldn’t have a business, which is the number one thing that’s important to us.”
Ben Church, Kaiser Industries, Inc.
"As a small business owner, your employees are nearly family and I certainly want every avenue of safety in place for my workers."
Jeffrey L. Walker, Just Cabinets, Inc.
"Just being a phone call away gives me piece of mind. In our safety oriented world it's good to know your organization is available to help."
Robin Tobey, Kempton Tobey & Son, Inc.
If you own or manage a small business, you don’t have spare time and money to devote to safety. We don’t want running a safe shop to be an extra burden for you --- we want it to be a business asset that makes your life easier and your business more profitable. With razor thin profit margins, a safe workplace --- without the costs of injuries --- can make the difference between success and failure for a small business.
And many small businesses in Maine are like families --- you know and care about your employees and don’t want them to get hurt. That’s another reason to pay attention to safety.
Maine is a small business state. Over 60% of businesses in Maine have fewer than 50 employees. And 36% have less than 10 employees. As a small business operator, your safety and health needs are different than those of large businesses. You need help that is free, practical, and a phone call away --- and that spells SafetyWorks!.
