In October 1993, the formation of the ASSIST/TBFAA Workers Compensation Safety Group (ASG) was announced at the ASSIST Annual Convention in San Antonio, Texas. The safety group was created following the authorization of workers' compensation risk purchasing groups by the Texas legislature in 1991. The ASG Safety Group then partnered with Texas Mutual Insurance Company to create a purchasing group for the state's security guard and private investigation industry. In 1998, The ASG Safety Group and Texas Mutual amended the purchasing group to include the alarm industry and partnered with the TBFAA to offer the benefit of the group to its members. Currently, the ASG Safety Group is the oldest underwritten by Texas Mutual Insurance Company.
