Since our founding in 2004,

we have taken more than 150,000

school personnel through our safety training.


We established to provide engaging and effective training content that can prepare our schools staff for the everyday accidents and the unthinkable tragedies. Our founders have dedicated their careers to risk management and their lives to improving the safety of our schools. They have seen so much needless cost, pain and loss that could have been avoided had the right measure of precaution and awareness been instilled in our schools personnel. Our goal is to create a true culture of safety in our schools. We will do this by changing behavior in our valued school workers to be ready for the unexpected threats to their schools and classrooms, to be aware of their surroundings, and to prevent injuries to themselves. 

Since our founding in 2004, we have taken more than 150,000 school personnel through our safety training. We are dedicated to providing safe and secure environments for educational workers, support staff and the students they serve every day. Our training is easy to implement and affordable to integrate into your existing budgets. We've proven that our training actually yields a 10 to 1 return on investment in insurance claims costs.
