About Us


Our culture photo

Most of us take America’s infrastructure and hazardous services for granted, rarely pausing to consider the hard-working businesses and employees who make it all possible.Working in a high hazard job isn’t only dangerous – it’s challenging in every imaginable sense; physically, personally, and emotionally.

At USISA, we are passionate about supporting America’s blue-collar workforce and their families and hold deep respect and gratitude for the jobs that they perform. While we can’t change the nature of dangerous work, we can make it less hazardous through enhanced workplace safety.

In addition to risk control support, USISA members and their families also have exclusive access to the MyBenefitsWork™ program. This national Discount Medical Plan Organization (DMPO) empowers families with access to health care services and products at pre-negotiated discounted rates on services like prescription savings, as well as vision and dental care.

Workplace Culture

There is no greater indicator of workplace risk and the propensity for a harmful event to occur than business culture. Correspondingly, USISA focuses on a consultative approach with member companies and their employees, providing expert support in not only identifying areas of increased risk within each organization, but implementing customized programs and strategies to influence how a company and their employees think about safety.

Companies that establish safety as a core value that is ingrained in every aspect of the organization do much more than simply follow safety rules and regulations. Instead, they create a shared commitment to continuously identify and mitigate risk, encourage reporting of incidents and near-misses, and foster a sense of accountability and responsibility among all employees.
