The High Philosophy

The High Philosophy
Sanford H. High founded High Welding Company, the forerunner of the High® companies, in 1931, with a keen focus on innovation and serving his customers – and serving them well. This came to be known as The High Way. The High companies, which include High Environmental Health & Safety Consulting Ltd., continue to adhere to The High Way and to follow its values as affirmed for our organization and our people in The High Philosophy, the ethical statement of our beliefs. 

Our team looks forward to helping you navigate through the risks.  We will work to meet your expectations and if possible exceed them.  Our group is hardworking, well-educated and experienced in our field.  We seek to offer solutions with practicality and business principles in mind.  That means, we adjust our level of consulting to match your business.  Some of our clients operate at very high levels of safety performance.  They evaluate and investigate any risk aspect and apply corrective actions.  Others are primarily interested in OSHA compliance requirements and major risk controls. The recommendations that we provide to a highly adverse risk client, would not be appropriate for a client who is struggling to meet the OSHA specifications.  

Safety is a journey from dangerous to more safe.  It is a journey which is never complete, because no workplace is 100% free from risk and new hazards are continually surfacing.  We evaluate where your company is on the journey and seek to help you define the next stepping stones by pointing out the quicksand.  We know that showing you sections of the pathway far ahead of your current position, is not particularly helpful.  We can help you navigate the journey to compliance and then beyond from where you stand today.
