Safex Inc. is an environmental, health and safety consulting firm that has focused on helping companies keep their workers safe on the job for 20 years. The nature of Safex’s business is helping people and companies by keeping employees safe, injury costs low and worker production high.
Dianne Grote Adams, Safex’s president, believes in giving back to the community not only on a personal level but also as a company.
Located in Westerville, Safex strongly supports local businesses and has actively supported the Westerville Area Resource Ministry for 10 years. For nine years, Safex’s staff has delivered food to homebound individuals, and the company annually donates food to the group. In 2011, Safex donated more than 350 pounds of food, and near the end of 2012, the company was on track to exceed the 2011 total.
Each year on Halloween, Safex’s staff dons costumes and delivers candy to the residents of Feridean Commons, a senior living community.
Safex has donated workhours to help with Habitat for Humanity in the Columbus area. In March 2012, the company’s workers donated almost 100 hours. All of Safex’s employees were encouraged to participate in the day’s activities.
In 2012, Safex helped with construction and the finishing work on two houses in Columbus’ Linden area. One of the company’s construction safety professionals donated time to conduct inspections at two Habitat for Humanity sites and provided free advice on the safety programs in force at the sites.
