Blakeman & Associates and Total Safety are bringing together their consulting experience to offer customers a more complete package of services and products. Blakeman & Associates can now offer Total Safety’s online respirator medical evaluation questionnaire and Blakeman & Associates can now provide a managed ISNetworld® compliance solution for Total Safety’s clients.

“We are always looking for new opportunities that will further our clients’ safety services,” says Bob Williams, CEO of Blakeman & Associates. “Total Safety’s Rapid MEQ® testing, an OSHA approved online medical questionnaire for employees, fits a need our clients asked for and a new partnership was created.”

Stenning Schueppert, a Senior Vice President of Total Safety, is also looking forward to offering more services to their clients around the globe. “ISNetworld® compliance remains a challenge for some of our customers and we are proud to offer them a trusted resource to tackle that compliance hurdle. Blakeman & Associates has a stellar record of assisting customers with their online contractor compliance – a service many clients are looking to outsource,” stated Schueppert.

Blakeman & Associates will feature the RapidMEQ® testing on their redesigned website starting Monday, April 15th. The confidential questionnaire can be completed online, saving companies the time and cost of sending their employees to an offsite licensed healthcare provider.

Blakeman & Associates guides small and large companies through the startup process with systems like ISNetworld®, PEC Premier, PICS and BROWZ and offers an annual maintenance program for maintaining compliance with these systems.

“Together with Total Safety, we will be able to bring a level of service to our customers unparalleled in the industry,” said Williams. “We see the needs of our clients changing and we have developed new services and products for our current and future clients.”
