Austian’s Risk Services, Inc.
I worked as a Region Safety Manager for Laidlaw Education Services for 13 years
and I was responsible for the risk management of up to 25 locations in the
Northwest. I currently work as a Regional Safety Director for Student
Transportation of America.
Laidlaw enlisted the services of Austian’s Risk Management, a consulting firm
owned and operated by Keith Austian. I had the opportunity to work with Keith
on a number of Safety Reviews in the field and also served on a safety review
committee with Keith as a beta user, providing input on the program.
Keith’s safety review process is a management training program that ensures
regulatory compliance and company policies are understood and implemented at
each location. His methods and software programs have proven to be an efficient
and effective way to measure compliance at each operating unit and provide the
foundation for improvement.
During the time Keith led the Safety Review process at Laidlaw, the company
realized significant gains in accident reduction and overall safety. In my region,
the accident frequency dropped over 80% during a ten year period.
I recommend Keith’s risk reduction programs to any company looking for a safety
and health solution. He has an extensive background in risk management and his
programs are tried and tested across a broad spectrum of industries and
