CSI was started in 2006 by Dean Shaver. CSI is wholly owned by its management and consultant team, which reinforces a strong commitment and belief in the viability of the company.
Dean Shaver, who founded CSI with little more than a trailer, a laptop and some business cards in its early days, did so after suffering his own workplace accident. By seeing firsthand how disjointed and unorganized the HSSE effort was at that time, he knew that he could instill an unprecedented level of dedication, accountability and pride into his own safety company’s operations. Today, the CSI team of safety professionals demonstrates this passion in every aspect of what they do. “CSI is successful because we care!” explains Shaver. “This is not just a job. We want people to go home safely to their families and friends. We have been there ourselves on the worksite and we know what needs to be done.”
CSI truly goes above and beyond by continually analyzing, interpreting and innovating on all levels of HSSE on their worksites. The company has established itself as an industry leader by mentoring workers and influencing how people view worksite safety. CSI’s will stop any unsafe work practices and closely monitor and review all practices on a worksite to ensure HSSE standards are met, but strive to have standards met and exceeded to ensure everyone goes home safely. They bring their expertise directly to their clients. CSI’s team members receive ongoing training to maintain a higher level of service than other companies in the HSSE industry.
Growth of the company is always done with quality as a foremost consideration. Bringing on the right qualified personnel is always a huge priority for CSI.
“CSI is different than any other HSSE company because all of their staff has been on the worksite, from the CEO to the field worker. They get the calls and have done the job. How do you stop an unsafe act if you don’t have the knowledge about the job? We have the knowledge and experience.”
CSI acquired Tallrig International in late 2012 to help expand CSI’s influence. Tallrig offers complementary services to CSI to better serve our clients.

Tallrig offers industry training courses customized to meet the client’s needs as well as conducts COR safety audits and all related fieldwork. Not only can they design a client’s program, they will place specialists on the sites to manage it.
