How We Got Started
During 1998 – 1999 a series of chemical explosion and transportation accidents resulted in the deaths and severe injuries to multiple industrial employees. After seeing Dean on the television at these locations, and on top of trains that were on fire, his wife, Sue, asked if there was something safer he could do for a living. He replied he could teach others how to not only prevent, but also to safely respond to chemical accidents. As CEO, Sue maintained the administration side of the business and almost 20 years later, we’ve grown into a nation-wide consulting company. While we still own and operate HazMat Solutions, the corporation is now one of the highest rated privately-owned Hazardous Materials Training and Confined Space Rescue Companies in the country.
Training from Experience not from the book
We had the option to be the first to provide online training but decided that onsite, custom training for industrial facilities is the only way to safely train our clients for all the hazards associated with chemicals in the workplace.
