Why Get Safety Training With Us?

Provenio Consulting was started to address the needs of companies to have access to safety trainers and consultants who are experts and who can provide common-sense solutions.

  • help with your regulatory reporting, we’ll get it right because we understand the end use of those reports.
  • audit your facility for compliance and risk, we don’t need checklists because what we’re looking for is ingrained in how we see the world.
  • develop your policies and procedures, we know what works so you get processes that will be implemented, understandable, and effective.
  • OSHA compliance or your state’s OSHA plan and other regulatory requirements, such as DOT.


To grow, thrive, prosper, arise, flourish

Provenio is a Latin word that we identify with, because it’s meaning aligns perfectly with our clients business goals of growth and prosperity. The logo of the interlaced arrows is an adaptation of the “greater than” sign, signifying growth and improvement in a continual pattern, ever moving forward, ever evolving.
