Terri Piasecki has been involved in the construction industry all of her adult life. As a daughter of a Union Electrical Contractor (IBEW Local 25) in the 1980's she began working in her father's office. Learning all about the business and accounting using the old fashioned One-Write system (yes, before computers and Quickbooks were a thing)! Eventually going to college, Terri began working for other types of subcontractors - usually in the accounting office, learning all aspects of the business of contracting - from insurance and bonding to job costing, to human resources and worker's comp case management. Eventually out of college, she landed a job for an environmental contractor - mostly asbestos, lead and mold abatement along with selective demolition and reinsulation services. Around 2000-2001 the price of contractor insurance premiums skyrocketed, and Terri became their safety manager to try and reduce injuries and improve relations with insurance companies. Together with the cooperation of the principals, we turned the company around. We created a culture where safety became a priority, and something employees willing talked about consistently. The result was better safety behavior and then the company saw their EMR rating go below 1.0 which translated to a worker's compensation insurance premium discount! Not just a small savings but a measurable, significant premium discount.
Peak Safety supply
Peak Safety Supply helps businesses and people get the most out of their work day by helping them choose the right safety equipment. Imagine the effect on efficiency when a worker wears safety glasses that distort their vision or gloves that do not fit properly. Throwing a harness on a worker and calling it fall protection isn't always the answer.
We are authorized distributor's of over 100,000 products - it would be impossible to load all of those products on our website. We really aren't interested in supplying the masses online. There are plenty of suppliers that will sell you a boat load of 99 cent safety glasses and other gear online. The problem with that route is that your workers may have to deal with glasses that distort their vision or other ineffective gear all day which can be really frustrating and cause non-compliance issues. Instead, we specialize in getting to know you, our client and finding products that work best for your employees whatever their trade is.
HOW YOU SAVE with PEAK SAFETY SUPPLY
Often times even if a contractor buys their goods online at what they think are rock bottom prices (from Amazon for example) - we can offer the same brand and model for less. Sometimes we can also introduce the client to a comparable product that they like more, for less cost - yes that happens! With Peak Safety Supply we can bring you samples so you can feel, touch and demo a product before you buy a case of it! That's something you can't really do online. In addition, we maintain manufacturer direct relationships so when they have an overstock sale or clearance pricing we can let you know and pass along the savings to you, our client.
If you want to provide functional gear for your employees and improve compliance - give me a call and I will do my best to learn what it is you do and how best I can help you! It won't take long, and I'll make it as painless as possible! We can meet in person OR talk on the phone. Job site location is out of town? No problem we ship worldwide, we even offer international shipping. Terri's direct number is 919 368 3247.
I look forward to helping you make your work safer!
