Partner Testimonials

We’re committed to providing the safety and training needs of our members and the community we serve.

The staff at the Safety Council of SW Louisiana are a great group. I had a training I needed developed on an extremely quick time table, and they were able to help me complete this project within a one-month timeframe. They were responsive and made same-day edits as needed until the job was complete and perfected.

Katie Jolly, Health & Safety Supervisor Cameron LNG

We have worked hand-in-hand with the Safety Council of Southwest Louisiana staff on the training needs for PPG’s contractors and visitors, and they have gone above and beyond in meeting our needs. Whenever we have had a need or opportunity to revise our training courses or add distance learning capabilities for VIP visitors , they took the ball, ran with it, and made it happen quickly. I can’t say enough about the staff and facilities of the Southwest Louisiana Safety Council, they are a first class operation!

Butch Davis, EMR, COSS PPG Industries

We worked with John, Jerry, and the Safety Council staff to bring forklift and fire extinguisher safety on-site for our employees. They created an in-house training for forklift safety that could be cascaded through all our locations, no matter the state, using a ‘Train the Trainer’ plan to ensure all our staff received a comprehensive, consistent, and quality training experience. The time and care the team put in, both prior to training delivery and during the sessions, speaks to their care for working men and women in our area and beyond.

Garrett Stine, Director of Training and Safety Stine Home Improvement

We are very pleased with the end product of our contractor training. It was a pleasure to work with Mr. Ellis and he kept the ball rolling to complete the project. The contractor site-specific program developed for us by your team was perfect. The learning program was very user friendly and was broken down into smaller modules with a test. The smaller modules held the employees’ attention, and they retained the information. I have not met a representative from the Safety Council of SWLA that was not friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about what they have to offer industry. Thank you for making our job a little easier and providing the training our employees need.

Steven Guillory, Facility Security Officer/Safety Specialist Indorama Ventures Olefins, LLC

Working with the Safety Council of SWLA was one of the best decisions we made for our contractor training needs. We provided the content, and they created a world-class training module which was interactive and state of the art. The process was easy, and their developer was great to work with. The turnaround time was much faster than anticipated. I highly recommend the Safety Council of SWLA for all of your training needs.
