The Interactive Way to Train Employees

Safety Si! was started in 1997 by Javier Mendez, a dedicated and skilled consultant with over 35 years of accomplishments in safety, risk management, loss control, and employee training.

Javier started the Safety Si! Risk Control Program to address the growing needs and challenges for an effective and interactive way to train employees on workplace safety issues, as well as provide companies with advice on OSHA and workers compensation.

Training for Employees: Integrate a Safety Culture into the Workplace

The Safety Si! offers on-site bilingual (English and Spanish) training courses that are highly interactive and designed to educate and encourage employees to work safely and become more safety conscious. The bilingual approach of Safety Si! ensures comprehension of the training material, and breaks down language barriers to open up communications between employees and supervisors.

In addition to traditional course materials such as handouts, the training includes demonstrations, videos, props, and posters, helping to keep employees engaged and excited about the learning process.

During the training courses, employees are motivated to help keep their workplace a safe place.

Javier Mendez, Safety Si! founder and key instructor, is a lively and humorous trainer with a proven track record with major insurers such as Allianz Insurance, Superior National, Cal Comp and Pan American Underwriters. Javier’s interactive and entertaining teaching methods are highly regarded as a superior approach to otherwise boring training sessions.

Workers Compensation & OSHA Consulting for Employers:

Javier has been working with California companies since 1980, offering insight and support into the often confusing area of OSHA standards, regulation and compliance, as well as helping organizations keep their workers compensation claims down.
