About XO Safety


What is XO Safety?

In the Navy, the second in command is known as the "Executive Officer", abbreviated as "XO".  XO's are responsible for the execution of the captain's orders.  They are technically not in charge, but they oversee the entire ship's operations. 

Most safety managers fit this role.  They report to an owner or executive, but are responsible for safety compliance for the entire company.  We built this site to meet the needs of these "XO's".  We are not just an ecommerce site - we are a resource for those who are dedicated to improving safety at their facility.

 

Our History

XO Safety is part of Affordable Safety Training LLC.  The company was founded by a former naval nuclear engineer.  After his military service, he spent years in the energy and manufacturing sectors, running safety and training programs.  He struggled to find safety solutions that were effective and economical.  So in 2007, he quit his job as a safety manager at an international utility, and founded Affordable Safety Training.
