“Don Bessette and Safety Compliance Services have been doing an outstanding job of working with us over the last two years to write 57 new health and safety procedures encompassing all areas of OSHA safety compliance.  These procedures will be implemented across all of the company’s wind, solar and geothermal electric generation facilities.  Not only is the cost to develop these procedures very reasonable, they are clearly written so that they can be understood by everyone, from the site managers to the maintenance and operations employees.  And Don is a dynamic and knowledgeable speaker who impressed all of the attendees during our recent annual safety kickoff conference.  If future needs for safety consulting services emerge in the future, SCS will be the first company that will come to my mind.”

Greg Odegard – Environment, Health & Safety Director, Terra-Gen Operating Company

“We have utilized external Confined Space Rescue services the last six years during outage periods to support emergency response, safety observations and medical treatment for minor injuries. We have had several companies support these efforts and although all companies we used performed better than anticipated with qualified support personnel we have found that Safety Compliance Services brings another level of commitment and professionalism. We discuss daily findings such as audits and observations that are documented with any deficiencies corrected by the SCS Technicians immediately. As a safety professional it is extremely beneficial that I have safety support at all times and throughout the entire project and locations by fully qualified personnel able to respond immediately supporting and coordinating with our employee based Emergency Response Team during any emergency situation. It allows my management team and I to sleep at night knowing that we have the proper support onsite around the clock!”

Kurt Puthe, Senior Safety Specialist, Logan Generating Station

“Our staffing plan and training structure was originally designed with the intentions of managing most all of our safety training in-house. Initially we used Safety Compliance Services, Inc to fill the requirements until the new staff could get better prepared to manage the training objectives. However, SCS performed at an exceptionally high standard, at a cost that was competitive when compared to our expected in-house expense and has always demonstrated the necessary flexibility to provide quality training around our challenging shift schedules. As such, SCS has continued and will continue to provide these services to our facility.”

Malcolm Hubbard – Plant Manager, New Harquahala Generating

“Thanks again for another great training evolution. Mike Hart and Bill Elderbroom, as always, were articulate and knowledgeable instructors. They did a great job of presenting the material and keeping the class interested. Next year, we are planning to add the Confined Space Rescue training with our local fire department to our curriculum. Safety Compliance will be the instruction team for this evolution. We have come to expect the excellent instruction and service we always receive from you.  We look forward to another productive round of training next fall. Thanks”

Paul McCarthy – Operations Superintendent, Millennium Power Partners

“Our Businesses are in the Second Phase of Confined Space Training; having just recently completed the Rescue Section with “Excellent” acceptance by the local work force. In my 35+ years of Power Delivery Work I’ve not seen a better group of Trainers than Don Bessette and the Safety Compliance Services folks. Don and his guys are number one with AES Group of Businesses here in Kazakhstan. We look forward to many more Training Sessions with Safety Compliance Services.”

Ron Beaver – HSE Director, AES Group of Businesses, Kazakhstan

“Safety Compliance Services has provided safety training and contractor safety video services for us for 5 years now at Athens Generating Plant in Athens, NY.  We had used other Safety Training companies at previous facilities and no other company provided the flexible scheduling and customer service that Safety Compliance has.  Their instructors have real life experience in saving lives and preventing incidents and therefore teach with confidence and conviction.”

Sean Spain – O&M Manager, Athens Generating Plant

“The on-site training that Safety Compliance Services provided was excellent. The company does a great job with the training process which we have found to be very well organized. They bring real life experiences to the group, which makes the training interesting. They also have stayed current on the safety issues specific to our industry”.

Peter Frey – Facility Manager, Dartmouth Power Associates LP

“I have been utilizing the support of Safety Compliance Services for my safety training needs and for technical advice on various safety related issues in the power generation industry for years. SCS has delivered on all my training requests by developing excellent curriculums and providing professional instructors. Their competent staff has also provided me with excellent technical advice and briefs for decisive resolution of regulatory safety matters as well. I would highly recommend them as a valuable safety source for any company!”

Richard F. Stephen – Manager of Global Safety, AES Corporation

“Safety Compliance Services did an outstanding job at putting together our plant’s Safety & Health Manual, and our Hurricane Procedure. The Hazardous Materials training they did at my site was talked about for days after the class was over and everyone learned something. Their ability to think outside of the box and knowledge of the OSHA standards are top notch. I think Safety Compliance Services is the best safety consulting company I have ever used.”

Michael S. Evans – Senior Safety Specialist, Cedar Bay Generating

“A number of our plants have worked with Safety Compliance Services for both rescue and hazardous materials training, and the results have always been outstanding.  Their trainers are very experienced and professional; and they custom tailor their programs to fit our needs exactly.”
