Safety Services

As a Shafer client, our Safety Services Department will work with you to develop and maintain a safety culture within your organization that will help ensure hazardous situations are identified and corrected so that your employees go home safely at the end of the day.

Facility / Jobsite Safety Visits

Our staff is available to visit your facility or jobsite to evaluate it from an OSHA compliance and insurance risk point of view. Keep in mind that OSHA compliance does not address common liability and property issues, and insurance loss control does not always take into consideration OSHA requirements. We want to help identify and eliminate hazards from all of these areas.

Program Development

We realize that developing any program is not easy. We help customers develop and improve programs to better fit their needs. Some of the most common programs include:

  • Safety Program Development

    We help you determine the specific topics that should be addressed in your safety program and the structure you need in place to help you reach your safety program goals.

  • Drug-Free Workplace Program Development

    We can help you through the process of becoming a Certified Tennessee Drug-Free Workplace.
  • Early Return To Work Programs

    Returning injured employees to work as soon as possible is critical when it comes to helping ensure a speedy recovery and keeping workers’ compensation claims’ costs low. We can help you implement a program that will save money, reduce lost workdays and discourage fraudulent Workers Compensation claims

What a GREAT group of people, First agent I have ever had that actually tries to save you money. How Refreshing!

Larry Massey

I contacted the Shafer Insurance Agency with multiple insurance needs, and everyone I have come in contact with has been beyond helpful and friendly. Kim promptly directed me to who I needed to speak with. Stanton Oster and Mike Compton were both very professional, thorough, and efficient with getting my insurance needs quoted. Carol and Lynn were both very quick with sending out all the needed paperwork along with sending me copies of my new insurance policies. Overall, great customer service, and great experience. I’d recommend them to anyone looking for any type of insurance!

Shanetha Collier

Thank you Shafer Insurance Agency with saving me over $1,600 per year on my current homeowners and auto insurance policies. I can’t believe I’ve been over paying for 25 years! Plus, I now have more coverage then I previously had. I will definitely recommend Shafer Insurance to everyone needing to re-evaluate their current coverage!

Jennifer Sandifer

Got a reasonable quote in a timely fashion from a friendly agent. That’s an A. One company had me wait 24 hrs and substantial price difference.

Our company uses Shafer Insurance because of the outstanding service their company provides consistently. Not only do they work to find us the lowest premiums but when ever we have an issue they work hard to make sure the issue is resolved no matter what it is. I consider Shafer Insurance to be more than a vendor .. they are a partner with our company. .. one that I trust. Anyone would be well served to use Shafer Insurance for all their insurance needs.
