A device that is revolutionizing electrical safety.

Meet SafeGuard

Our Story

With what originally starting out as a passion project between three college students, Safeguard Equipment was founded with the core idea of making the lives of loved ones safer when working around power systems. After hearing the fatality and injury statistics of linemen, Tim Ledford, Brandon Bledsoe, and John Thompson made it their mission to provide a solution to electrocution for those who were at risk.

Our Vision

At Safeguard Equipment our vision is to save lives, give back, and inspire others to innovate in their communities.

Our Technology

Our technology will set a new safety standard for anyone working around power systems. We are proud of our patent pending product Compass™. Join us in December when we hit market!

Making the World Safer

With a global need for improvement in electrical safety, Safeguard Equipment is passionate about reinventing personal protective equipment for anyone that works around high power.

Our Technology


We have developed an innovative, modernized life saving device that can detect an energized source and warn a user if they are in danger of being electrocuted. It will drastically lower the chance of electrocution for anyone working around energized surfaces and conductors.

Life Saving

There are over 215 utility linemen deaths and 2000 serious injuries in the U.S. power industry per year caused by electrocution. Our product will alert a user when they are unaware of an electrically charged surface and save their life. Our product will drastically reduce human error!


Our innovative technology, Compass™, has been applied to a clippable Heads-up-Display for easy use and application. With the use of its unique form factor it can detect electricity 360 degrees around the user. Once a threat has been detected Compass™ provides user with notifications for proximity and the approximate direction of an electrically charged source. Through the use of both audible and visual notifications, users are alerted of threats long before they come into harm’s way.
