Accidents happen. How many times have you heard that?
Globalnologies Corporation USA - For the founder of Georgia-based Globalnologies Corp., it was one time too many. Moreover, seven years ago, he embarked on a path to change the way America views workplace accidents. “Some are not preventable, but many are,” said Tony M. Jackson, chairman & CEO of what was then a small start-up company, who saw the key to changing the soaring accident rate as innovation.
Instead of trying to change attitudes, Jackson and his team of accident prevention professionals, decided instead to change methods. The company introduced a series of new and highly effective safety solutions, products they believed would reduce industrial and commercial accidents take every year in deaths, injuries, and costs. While clearly cutting edge and effective, their products took a practical, common sense approach to an old problem: accident prevention. The market responded to their higher visibility solutions, and Globalnologies grew and prospered. The company is expecting sales of $6.2 million in 2008 and a 5-10% annual growth over the next three years.
The company’s signature product is its TriFlector safety device, used extensively on highway construction jobs, emergency first responders, and airport runways. According to industry publications, the TriFlector has become the premiere safety solution in a market dominated by traditional devices, such as warning triangles, traffic cones, flares and those ubiquitous highway construction barrels. But, unlike some of these first generation products, the TriFlector has cross-market appeal, from law enforcement and highway construction safety to airport grounds safety and fleet safety management. They have become the number one higher visibility safety solution for utility, cable, petroleum, and emergency work environments.
Visitors to Globalnologies corporate office in suburban DeKalb County, quickly get the message when entering their facility. A large sign greets them that reads: “Being Safe is No Accident.” This summarizes the core principle of the company and its commitment to produce products that enhance safety, save lives, reduce injuries, and protect business assets. Their TriFlector product suite is part of a trend toward “higher visibility safety solutions,” acknowledged as a major step up from traditional safety devices.
According to Jackson, whose career includes senior position with ALLTEL Telecom Services and Cingular Wireless, “Viewing loss prevention as a necessary evil is the single biggest mistake a manager or executive can make. Loss prevention can be achieved and even a zero percent accident environment is possible. But, it requires a carefully planned strategy and the right safety equipment and products. Ours are all designed with this objective in mind."
“We are changing the way people and businesses think about proactive higher visibility safety solutions, by implementing effective loss prevention strategies, “Jackson added. In the face of potentially heavy losses, even the tragic loss of lives, the company believes that everyone’s goal should be “zero percent accident environments.” This requires bridging the gap between incident management and safety solutions and Jackson believes that Globalnologies' product line, especially the TriFlector Suite of Products, is one of the solutions.
Globalnologies Corporation (globalnologies.com) is a research and development company with a primary focus on new or improved safety product innovations within the “incident management” industry. Through its direct-to-consumer business model, the company was founded in 2000 with a simple, yet powerful concept: by marketing directly to consumer and commercial market segments, Globalnologies could best understand customer needs and efficiently provide the most effective safety management solutions to meet those needs.
