Site safety visits and audits
We can visit your site as you need to make sure you are following the OSHA standards. This is imperative for Site Supervisors and managers to know what is going to cost them in injuries or fines. A site audit form will be turned into the site supervisor, so he can have an opportunity to correct any problems discovered and corrected before and accident happens or an OSHA inspector shows up onsite costing the company direct and indirect charges that could break a company and ruin them financially.
Behavioral based safety
This course teaches employees to break habits that have been developed, we teach the student to recognize developed old habits and work in a safer manner by using Job safety analysis, we focus on teaching the students to know the task at hand, what danger is present with each task, and how to apply a control measure to each task. We like to have the students see the JSA or THA as an asset and not a burden.
In the event OSHA would show up to your site, we will be willing to drop what we are doing and be your eyes, ears and voice to walk through the site with the inspector. This can make a huge difference in abating problems before the OSHA personnel leave the site and could be the difference on fines or abatement solutions.
Root cause analysis / Accident investigations
Root cause investigations or analysis is done after an unwanted incident, we can determine the how when and why the incident took place and refer you to a solution that will prevent it from happening again in the future.
OSHA follow up preparations
Sometimes OSHA may allow time to allow abatement measures, this is where we can help with site preparations for a follow-up visit. This could make all the difference in the cost of a serious violation of 12,400.00 dollars or a willful violation of 124,000.00 Dollars.
EMR or experience modifier rate evaluations
This is where we work together, with your workman’s comp carrier and determine what your risk for hire is. this term EMR is usually used when you are bidding work, it gives the hiring company a snap shot or your injury history over the last 3 years of operation.
Total recordable injury rates
We can sit down with you and show you how to calculate your total recordable injury rates for your OSHA 300 logs, or we will be happy to do it for you if you don’t feel you can. This information is only required if you have more than 10 employees in your company, but if it is done incorrectly, it could cost your company valuable time and money to correct.
OSHA 300 log preparation, monitoring and posting
We will be happy to prep, monitor and post your log for you throughout the year. If you’re not sure what injuries need to go on the log and what doesn’t, this could cause you to have false information and not only receive an OSHA citation but it can cause your EMR ratio to be false. This could have a huge impact on jobs you want to bid in the future if your EMR is considered too high.
Written safety policies
We can always write a customized safety policy for your business or individual plans for your operations. We can also do site specific plans such as fall protection or site safety plans.
I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. Ezekiel 36:26-27
