Having worked with Joe Caracci and the Monarch team for many years, I can attest to the positive impact they have had in the life of Garden Spot Village. They have a unique process that focuses on developing a true culture of safety by combining education, coaching and accountability in a practical and effective manner. Not only has their work resulted in significant cost savings for our organization, but they have helped us to create a culture that truly honors and respects each team member.

Great Lakes Castings brought Monarch in to improve plant safety. After sixteen months I can say the experience has been a fruitful one. Through training, inspections, follow-up and employee interviews Monarch has heightened the safety awareness in the plant. The result has been a 42% reduction in the accident rate at Great Lakes. The investment in Monarch has and continues to pay dividends.

Monarch's approach had an immediate positive impact on our organization, not only from a dollars and cents perspective, but also in improving the overall morale of our team members. Our Self Insured costs have gone down by $22,000 per month. This is truly a win/win for us.

Joe and his team at Monarch Risk Management have been instrumental in building a positive relationship and improving our culture regarding risk and workers’ compensation safety awareness. They accomplish this by their detailed monthly audits by ensuring compliance, change and accountability. The peace of mind knowing that all of our employees and residents are safer is priceless.

Monarch Risk Management has helped St Paul’s dining services decrease employee injuries and improve our government audits over the past 2 years. I consider them a partner in improving safety and sanitation Standards. I look forward to their visits; it’s like having an extra set of eyes, which helps in seeing things that at times we miss.
They even find things the other five agencies miss in their audits.
Rick Shay is very professional when he addresses safety concerns with the staff; he is kind and explains why safety procedures are followed and what happens when they are not. He is never condescending and has many great recommendations. When injuries occur, the re-enactment of the incidents has been a tremendous help in assuring that everything was and is being done to prevent the incident from happening again. The staff feels comfortable when re-enacting the incident, and finds it is not an interrogation but a fact-finder to prevent them from getting injured again.
Monarch Risk Management is not just a company that points out all the things we do wrong, they help us in operating a safer operation and bring up the standards of our dining program.

Joe's passion for risk management is unsurpassed. His RM program has reduced incidents, injuries and related labor and insurance costs in each of the three organizations where we have worked together. The ancillary benefits of his diligent yet gentle approach especially with healthcare staff is to facilitate a stronger team with greater accountability and a deeper commitment to staff, resident and organizational safety.
I highly recommend Joe and look forward to his on-going support of our mission.
