We have customers that need made-to-order product in two days. The only company in the US that could possibly do that is Safewaze: they are small enough to have flexibility and can manufacture on the spot.

Our History

In 1994, as OSHA standards changed, Safewaze co-founders and industrial product veterans Gene Verble and Darrell Hagler saw an opportunity to create both a safer workplace and a different type of company.

By pushing the boundaries of responsiveness, flexible solutions and expert advice, Safewaze challenged the traditional fall protection provider experience. Why? Because lives were on the line and worksite demands required a nimble, hard-working safety partner.

Technology and tools have evolved over the years. Our DNA is the same. We remain 100% committed to redefining the customer experience in the fall protection industry. With a new manufacturing facility, investment in digital tools and mission-focused team, we deepen our capabilities to serve our customers – just the way they want.

Safewaze is a beacon of light in a dark landscape of manufacturing. It’s nice to know there are companies out there still hustling to be responsive.
