OSHA Enforcement and Tracking Info

Not everyone is familiar with all of the rules OSHA expects us to follow. It is enough for us Certified by OSHA to Train others to be able to keep on top of the most common infractionos and help you keep from getting fines. Besides the safety of each individual, that is our ultimate goal in working together. OSHA's Policy on Enforcement of the Injury Tracking Rule had a December 31, 2017 deadline for submitting your injury data for the 2016 year. Since over 350,000 businesses didn't file on time, OSHA has extended the filing deadline date to June 15, 2018. Be sure to file if you are required to do so. I have attached the full information for you to have a better understanding of the rulin

Hazardous Work Environments and Managing Risk

OSHA defines a hazard as “the potential for harm.”1 Under OSHA’s General Duty Clause, employers are required to ensure that their job sites are “free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm” to workers.2 Managing the range and complexity of hazards in the modern workplace can present a daunting challenge to safety professionals. One of the other rulings which CA courts have provided is an Active Shooter capability is considered a 'hazard' and thusly, should be given as training for your employees. If you don't, and an active shooter ocurrs on your premesis, YOU will not only incur possible penalties and fines from OSHA, but you could al

You Don't Want a Compliance Culture

Sometimes, I look for the right words to project some of the more subtle concepts of Safety and how it is presented or perceived. It is not about programs....It is not about trying to reach perfection...it is about people. I am going to present a very candid, simple explanation of how Safety should work in our society.
