Guard-Safe Guarding is a Total Solutions Guarding Company

"Safety first!" It's something that a lot of people say, but at Guard-Safe Guarding it is and always has been our first and only mission. Founded in the heartland of America, Guard-Safe Guarding is located in Sibley, Iowa. We’re still a fairly small operation, but we make up for it in expertise and good old-fashioned know-how. Over the years, Guard-Safe Guarding has designed and built custom-engineered safety guarding products and solutions that have helped companies across a wide range of industries remain OSHA and MSHA compliant while reducing (or eliminating) on-the-job injuries without overly encumbering their workforce.

Why Did We Start Our Company?

Larry Engle spent over 35 years in the material handling and conveyor industry before founding Guard-Safe Guarding. In that time, he was witness to accidents on the line that caused injuries and even fatalities. Determined to find a way to help keep workers safer, Larry looked at hundreds of existing guards in the industry and was amazed to find that many were not OSHA or MSHA compliant or adequate to their tasks. Sure, most were painted yellow—a good start—but he found that he could reach around, under, over and through many of them.

Frustrated by the lack of quality guards that would protect workers and help to prevent accidents, he started Guard-Safe Guarding as a way to help companies stay in compliance with regulations while protecting their most valuable assets—their workers.
