Mr. Javier Mendez, Risk Control Specialist with Safety Si, has been leading the Safety Program at Forbes Industries, in Ontario, California since 1993. During this period of time, Mr. Mendez has been very effective, working with our employees in creating a solid understanding of what a safety culture is all about. More importantly his well rounded experience has brought significant contributions to a vertically integrated manufacturing environment encompassing, sheet metal, plastics, brass welding and polishing, as well as wood discipline.

The contribution of his efforts has been paramount in reducing accidents. We have evolved from an accident reporting entity, to an accident preventing facility. we have evolved from an accident reporting entity, to an accident preventing facility. we have a strong convincing factor that through training, and engineering controls, all accidents can and should be prevented.

The best way to measure Mr. mendez efforts is through a highly improved experience modificator factor before and after his program. We have gone from 119% in 2003 to a 64% in 2009. This reduction would have never taken place without the discipline and determination of Mr. Javier mender’s passion for his work.

To this effect, I strongly recommend Mr. Mendez’s Services to any organization ready and willing to start the process of the safety culture transformation. The benefits of his program would significantly improve employees’ morale, and ultimately, increase stockowner’s equity by reducing workers compensation claims and lost time accidents.

Should you have any questions, please contact me at your earliest convenience.

Yours truly,
