What we do

Our mission is to improve the safety record of every company by providing data and actionable insights to eliminate employee injuries from the workplace.

Why we do it

After seeing too many unnecessary workplace injuries and fatalities while working in the insurance business, CEO Eric Martinez thought there should be a better way. With that lens, he set out to establish his own company to tackle employee safety. His solution? The Modjoul SmartBelt.
