Our mission is to provide the leadership and direction our clients need to ensure excellence in the protection of their employees, their customers, the environment they operate in, and their company assets. We are leading the way with continuous improvements in all areas of safety and health, by using carefully developed processes which emphasize employee involvement, and are built using our client's individual management framework. We are dedicated to promoting a safety and health philosophy through the application of recognized processes and programs which contribute to the success of our clients, and thereby our success.


We have all heard that safety starts with Management Commitment. As leaders, we have a responsibility to keep our team safe. Top threats in safety have a high probability of resulting in fatalities, injuries, significant property damage and/or damage to a company’s reputation. We constantly strive to meet or exceed our customers’ ever increasing requirements. We do this in concert with protecting our most valuable asset – our PEOPLE. Our recipe for success stems from our hardworking team and the determination to provide exceptional quality and service. Our leaders take personal accountability for their actions and strive to create a culture with a LOW Risk Tolerance to HIGH Risk Potential. While these may seem like small things, it speaks worlds about our team members character. We believe there are three mental and moral qualities that are required to be a successful team member: Ethics, Integrity and Honesty. This is what our company is founded on.


Scott from Texas City, TX writes “Excellent response on the potential overpressure protection issue…Your pursuing additional Process Safety Information (PSI) internally is also an excellent initiative.”

Jim from Liberal, KS writes “McDowell Safety and Health Services were particularly valuable in completing Industrial Health and Hygiene surveys for our asset…The project included thorough and complete documentation with professional clarity and finish…Because of McSHS broad expertise in HES, they have been employed to assist with HES audits of companies servicing our operations. [They have] been contracted to complete mechanical integrity testing on code vessels, piping and storage tanks throughout our asset. The testing is very well documented in a timely manner.” In closing, Jim states “McDowell Safety and Health Services is a very versatile and professional company. They offer a wide variety of competent expertise with the ability to work with specialized and non-specialized personnel. The documentation is thorough, accurate, and detailed. Our projects were completed with professionalism and a pleasant attitude.”

Staci from Latrobe, PA writes “Pat and his team developed regulatory compliant and site specific procedures, trained affected employees, and provided tools for implementation validation once the project was completed. He was able to deliver technical information in an easy-to-understand presentation while holding the attention of the audience. His work product is superior and his work ethic outstanding. My team provided tremendous feedback on Pat as a trainer and I would highly recommend him for any work that you have needing completion."


McDowell Safety has been working with a team of Certified Industrial Hygienists (CIH) and Epidemiologists investigating possible adverse health effects among clean-up workers, involved in either the mitigation of the oil release or the cleanup of the oil, from the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20, 2010. We are indirectly subcontracted to the U.S. National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) primarily in support of exposure assessment.
