Our Founder:

Rick Bennett is the founder of “The Safety Center”. Since 2001, he has been running the company on a part time basis thought out the United States. In 2006, he moved to the Spokane area and went full time with the company. His intention is to continue the same mission that he had while he was in the military, which is “to serve the people”. With his nation-wide group of associates and membership in the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE), the Safety Center will be able to find the answer to any environmental, health or safety question.

Rick has over 25 years of experience within the environmental, health and safety industry. He can provide customized program development that meets OSHA, DOSH, and the Army Corp of Engineers (EM 385-1-1) requirements; accident investigation, job site audits with photo back up and customized training. He believes that a solid safety program starts with a solid training program. If your employees are trained and understand what they are required to do, safety will be established.

After retiring from the Army, Rick joined a health and safety training company and started training employees in just about anyplace east of Denver. He taught the “HAZWOPER series” among other construction programs. He then entered the construction industry and has held positions from construction Site Safety Manager to Corporate Environmental, Health and Safety Director.
