Euricka Alugas’ dedication to service has always been the driving force behind her vision. Her humble beginnings in New Orleans and urge to assist others has motivated her to use her gifts in novel and innovative ways as a local businesswoman. Her timely conception of Safe Kit, a 100% woman-owned safety staffing and training company, fills a void by supporting the city’s rapidly growing infrastructure. While it is atypical for an industrial and construction safety company to be woman-owned and operated, Alugas is determined to forge a new path in this male-dominated industry. A trailblazer like no other in her collaborative efforts to continue to cultivate and enhance the lives of people within her own community, Euricka Alugas continues her objectives of disseminating information to empower the lives of those around her with Safe Kit, a mainstream company devised to maintain and enhance safety conditions at the workplace.
Through her extensive travels around the country, Euricka Alugas often delivers a personal message that resonates with other citizens seeking to bridge the economic and social gaps that lie within their communities. Based on feedback from people living in her native New Orleans and beyond, through her Vision 2 Victory banner - her non-profit organization, Alugas conceptualized, then subsequently invented the Safe Kit “to enlighten educate, prepare, and equip residents with the essential techniques needed to survive natural disaster occurrences.” Her strengths as a catalyst for change and connector of people includes a joint effort involving collaboration with Emergency Disaster Recovery programs that prepare and protect citizens against natural disasters and/or man-made hazardous crisis situations.
Since launching (Emergency) Safe Kit and leading as its Chief Executive Officer, Euricka has assisted several business owners in updating and refining the safety rules, regulations, and permits needed within their industry. Safe Kit’s offerings encompass several areas of safety precaution and work processes, with topics including but not limited to: CPR Training, OSHA 10-30 Bilingual Training, on-site drug testing, contractor safety program revisions, and more.
Through her intuition, networking skills, and ability to connect with people of all backgrounds, Alugas has made workplaces safe and more efficient for all workers. Past and present projects include Trimark Construction, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the New Orleans Morial Convention Center, Entergy Solutions, Energy Smart, Center Point Energy, the City of New Orleans, and many more.
Alugas’ mission to empower locals through innovative programs and dissemination of the latest information regarding disaster relief preparation has helped thousands of citizens prepare for life- threatening situations. A natural motivator and engaging presence, Alugas has taken her skills back to the communities she grew up in by working as a Certified Professional Safety Specialist and OSHA Outreach Trainer. In these roles, she works with staff and train contractors alongside their employees regarding the safety precautions and rules that have been proven effective at maintaining a secure workplace and invested in saving lives.
Safe Kit is now working with major companies and corporations to combat any type of emergency. Safe Kit’s highly licensed and certified safety professionals impact millions, helping them return back to work and school. As front-line professionals, Safe Kit’s employees work tirelessly to execute innovative ways to reach other frontline workers, employers, and municipalities to bring them quality safety products and training.
Euricka Alugas cares deeply about the safety of her clients. Through her personal mantra and that of Safe Kit, she believes in helping both workers and contractors improve safety conditions on the job and in emergency situations. Her maxim has always been and remains, “Safety first.”
