Client Recommendation

Todd Friis"I have worked with SMI Safety since 2001, when I was the Health and Safety Leader at Cargill Corn Milling in Blair, Nebraska. We used SMI's prequalification program (now branded as FIRST, VERIFY) to vet contractors that worked in our facility and new construction sites. It was extremely easy to use, and they always provided us with great support and customer service.

“Their prequalification program allowed key Cargill managers to easily manage compliance with our strict safety standards. We could quickly locate contractors and determine if they were qualified to bid on a project. Outsourcing our pre-qualification process saved us time, money, and simplified our lives.

“In 2010 I joined Clayco, Inc. in St. Louis as their Chief Safety Officer. Clayco is one of the nation's largest privately owned real estate, architecture, engineering, design/build and construction firms, with a truly elite safety management system that differentiates us from our competitors. When I learned that Clayco was looking to improve its prequalification program, I was happy to introduce them to FIRST, VERIFY’s service. We made the decision to go with FIRST, VERIFY because they could customize their program to fit our unique needs, but also because the low annual fee to our subs meant little pushback to us.

“I’m happy to give them an unqualified recommendation.”
