“There is great demand for workers in these areas; it makes perfect sense to protect those valuable experts with the safety products they need on a daily basis,” explains Mike Lewis, Total Safety regional manager.

Since the stores are built adjacent to a Total Safety office, customers will still have access to the company’s complete line of safety services, including compliance and inspections services, professional and technical safety services, specialized safety personnel, and communications and monitoring services.

Total Safety’s Carrizo Springs store is located at 3479 Highway 277, Carrizo Springs, Texas, and is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m-5:00 p.m.
