Company Mission Purpose Statement

We do this by working daily with facilities and their designers to provide the highest levels of experience and knowledge as new safety issues arise.

It is our goal to furnish our customers with quality products and excellent service.
In 1982, Lee deLoache began his career with McDevitt & Street as a Mechanical Engineer and project manager constructing psychiatric hospitals. In 1984, Lee took on the role of Senior Executive Director of Design and Construction with CBHS, which was at the time, the largest behavioral/psychiatric healthcare system in the nation. During his tenure at CBHS, Lee developed over seventy-five behavioral hospitals as well as monitor incident reports at these facilities. With his strong background in design, construction, and facility management, Lee has provided private consultation services to behavioral health facilities nationwide since 1999. With his extensive experience, Lee found a need to provide a single source for proven safety products. So in 2008, Lee and his son, David deLoache, who was an Environmental Engineer at the time, founded Behavioral Safety Products. Behavioral Safety offers a full line of state of the art, ligature resistant products that are technically sound and aesthetically pleasing while remaining cost-effective. With these products and our extensive industry knowledge, Behavioral Safety endeavors to meet and exceed our customer’s behavioral healthcare safety needs.

Chief Executive OfficerBanner HealthThe team at Behavioral Safety Products has been a terrific partner in our efforts to update our older behavioral health inpatient units. Many of the units have dated spaces that have odd fixtures and required retrofitting to be installed. They have helped us on multiple projects and even worked with their distributor to speed up delivery time in order for us to meet internal deadlines. BSP has been a pleasure to work with and a great resource for our facilities team.
