ST. THOMAS, ON, Feb. 4, 2014 /CNW/ - Ascent Group Inc. is pleased to announce a new partnership with Presage Group Inc. for their predictive safety analysis program. Presage is an industry pioneer in safety consulting. Presage Group Inc., is a privately held company whose technology reaches into the workplace to predict human behavior with a diagnostic tool that targets the invisible threat of behavioral risk.

Ascent Group Inc.'s CEO, Ron Osborne stated, "We have proudly worked over 2.5 million hours without a lost time accident; however, it is my belief that we cannot rest on our record. As good as we are, as time moves forward there is greater risk that we may in fact incur a serious incident or lost time accident. This is what the Presage system is all about." 

Presage's technology will allow Ascent to identify, understand and improve upon factors that affect safety performance with their employees and supply chain, thus enhancing their safety culture.  Many Ascent associates work in high voltage electrical environments so safety in the workplace is paramount to the success of our people, our company and our valued customers. 

Michael J. Brown commented about the Ascent Presage partnership "As CEO of Presage Group Inc., we are extremely pleased to be entering into a business relationship with the Ascent Group of companies. With Presage's intellectual property, providing predictive analytics around human factors (situational awareness), Ascent will enhance the tremendous health and safety record it has garnered in recent years. This technology will allow Ascent to identify, understand and improve upon factors that affect safety performance with their employees and supply chain, thus enhancing Ascent's safety culture."
