LWCC's Safety Services Team Members: Over 125 years of safety experience

LWCC is committed to providing policyholders more than a workers’ comp policy, but a variety of unique benefits.  With a commitment to fostering a culture of wellbeing in the workforce, a key benefit is our Consultants on Call program which works closely with policyholders in the development of a safe work environment.

Developing a successful safety and risk management program requires a thorough assessment of current procedures, detailed planning, careful implementation, and a workforce that is committed to the cause. Having an expert to help with this endeavor can make the process easier and efficient.

Our Consultants on Call are dedicated to understanding your operations and customizing safety solutions to meet your needs. Take a minute to get to know our talented team and how they can help you.



Damian Simoneaux, CSP

Safety Services Manager, 32 years of experience

Q: How is Consultants on Call beneficial to policyholders?

A: This free service can potentially save our policyholders both lives and money. As we work with the policyholder, we can provide examples of hazardous situations experienced by others and show them how they can reduce or avoid similar situations by developing a safety plan and implementing best practices.

Darren Kimball, CSP, ARM

Lead Safety Services Consultant, 33 years of experience

Q: What are some quick tips for policyholders wanting to develop a safer work culture?

A: One of the easiest ways for policyholders to start the process is to complete our safety self-evaluation form. This tool allows the policyholder to survey their operation, provide us basic information, and then puts our skills to work by allowing us make assessments before the first visit. This can save the policyholder time and money in the long run.

Monique Granier

Safety Services Consultant II, 33 years of experience

Q: What would you consider your greatest success story?

A: My greatest success story stemmed from a simple walkthrough at a small-town municipality’s wastewater treatment plant. During the visit I identified a major fall hazard. At the time, employees had to climb 6 feet and then literally hang over a guard rail to clean sewer filters. The risks associated with this daily activity weren’t a matter of if, but when, an accident would happen. I met with the local mayor to discuss the fall risk and we developed a safety plan and permanent solution. The mayor sought out grant funding that paid for a new platform that provided a safer workplace and eliminated the fall risk. It was a big win for all involved– the employees, the company, the municipality, and LWCC.

Greg Smith, COSS, CHST, CSHO, CWCP

Safety Services Consultant II, 15 years of experience

Q: What is your favorite part of being a consultant?

A: Simply put, my favorite part of being a consultant is bringing value to policyholders. I do so by educating policyholders on ways to improve safety within the organization. The goal is to not only keep employees safe, but to also assist them in improving the organizations work culture.

Catherine Landry

Safety Services Consultant I, 12 years of experience

Q: What are some quick tips for policyholders wanting to develop a safer work culture?

A: A simple tip I would give is to make time for a weekly safety meeting, even if it’s a 5-minute toolbox talk. Create an open dialogue about safety and best practices, that helps employees feel comfortable communicating their concerns and working together to find solutions to potential risks and hazards.

Jason Hazelton

Safety Services Consultant I, 9 years of experience

Q: What would you consider your greatest success story?

A: With one particular policyholder, I implemented a safety procedure for custodians to use while conducting tasks related to stripping and waxing of floors. The process is very slippery due to the chemicals used which creates a high risk for slips, trips, or falls. I conducted research and discovered a product called “paws” which consists of an abrasive pad with straps that fasten to the sole of a shoe. The cost of implementation was minimal when compared to the cost of a claim. The organization approved and ordered the product, which was them added into inventory and distributed each year to the custodians for use, drastically reducing potential incidents.
