ProAct Safety Celebrates 25 Years Leading Safety Excellence

Press Release from ProAct Safety Inc

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Nov. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- ProAct Safety, a recognized pioneer of safety excellence strategies, announced it will celebrate 25 years of service this November. The company has completed more than 2,000 unique safety projects in 34 countries and every major industry.

Terry L. Mathis, the company's CEO, founded the company in 1993 to help organizations create proactive, results-driven and sustainable safety strategies. Clients span a wide range of industries, from mining to manufacturing, within government, the armed forces and the private sector.

"During the 1980s and early 1990s several consultants had developed programs to improve safety performance, but no one had really developed a comprehensive approach to all the key elements of safety excellence," Mathis says. "Such an approach was what made ProAct Safety unique and valuable. The ongoing continuous improvement of these processes makes us an even more valuable partner in safety excellence today." Mathis was joined by Shawn M. Galloway, now ProAct Safety's President and COO, in 2005.
