Our Story

Since 1997, the team behind Western Safety Products has worked to provide workers and employers with the crucial equipment that ensures they can go home safely at the end of every day. We’ve made lasting relationships with customers in our Seattle home through a brick-and-mortar store and with customers everywhere through our website. Working closely with customers and manufacturers for decades, we’ve built a deep base of knowledge dedicated to using for greater workplace safety.   

Our Values

At Western Safety, we believe that values aren’t just what we say, but about how we serve you every day. Every time we interact with you, we make sure that we:

  • Communicate quickly to save our customers’ valuable time. 

  • Navigate our customers through their purchase with accurate, informed advice. 

  • Compete to earn our customers’ business with minimal price markup. 

  • Advocate for our customers, even if it means sending them to a competitor. 

  • Listen and learn from our customers’ needs and feedback. 

  • Educate customers on products and practices to help ensure better safety. 

Who We Are

Enrique Martinez and Michael Knollmeyer are working hard behind the scenes in our warehouse. Each of them takes particular responsibility for each of your orders.

Over the last few years, Candace Pledger has grown into our versatile office manager, handling purchasing, training, and more. We've also got great support in accounting and e-commerce with Bezawit Tsadik and Aaron Bullard.

We’re proud to have assembled a top-notch sales team with Joe Navone and Steve Woinowsky (who you have likely had the pleasure of speaking to if you’ve ever called our office) working in the office with e-commerce manager Gavin Murphy. Meanwhile, Xavier Cameron takes his work on the road, meeting our customers where they are.

Dawood Niazi works as both our VP of operations and accounting manager, but his willingness to take on any project means he’s involved in every aspect of what we do.

In 2004, Neil Radheshwar started working in our warehouse. He became president of Western Safety in 2019 after building up knowledge of all safety-related things.
