“It is so imperative that employers are able to recruit and retain their workforce, now more than ever before. For me, that boils down to two things: keeping your existing employees happy and healthy, and differentiating yourself enough to attract new, prospective employees. One way we can do that is by creating a safe work environment that
allows people to thrive, not just survive. Together, we can work to strengthen the workplace safety culture with our policyholders and create a healthy, more productive environment people are proud to be part of.”

Wess comes to MEMIC with nearly a decade of occupational safety and health experience, with specialized skill in the construction, manufacturing, and healthcare industries, including as consultant to one of the largest construction general contractors on the East Coast, focusing on marine construction and infrastructure. Most recently, she worked for Maine’s only Level One trauma center as an occupational safety industrial hygienist, handling Covid-19 response and construction safety oversight.
Wess earned her Bachelor of Science in Safety Science degree from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. She is also a Certified Safety Professional (CSP) and Construction Health and Safety Technician (CHST) through the Board of Certified Safety Professionals.
