Compliance & Safety First Will Help Your Business Create a Safe WorkPlace!
A different look at OSHA.
When was the last time you’ve revisited your workplace safety plan? Maybe you don't even have one.....yet! Not only is it the law, but it also can ensure that you and your employees are always safe.
In honor of June being National Safety Month, COMSAF would like to highlight four ways in which to help you identify unsafe behaviors, create opportunities for improvement and help you (and your employees) make well-informed safety decisions on a daily basis.
We all know your business is growing. You are putting all of your hard earned profits back into the business. You don't have the funds, nor the personnel to have an HR/Safety Compliance Officer to work for you. We both know the only reason why you have someone even dealing with these issues is because they were the one who could get the answers, but they weren't really trained nor certified. That is where COMSAF comes in to help. We specialize in getting to know YOUR business and letting you know exactly what you are required to do to meet OSHA standards so you don't get fined or incur any penalties.
1. Ensure your business meets legal requirements with OSHA.
Employers are responsible for providing a safe and healthful workplace for their employees. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s role is to assure the safety and health of America's workers by setting and enforcing standards as well as providing training and education to business owners. Check out OSHA’s handbook to ensure that your small business meets the legal requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970.
2. Find the Workplace Health and Safety Requirements that Apply to You.
Do you need help creating a workplace safety prevention plan but unsure of where to start? Go to OSHA's Compliance Assistance Quick Start site. This step-by-step guide to determine which OSHA requirements apply to your workplace and how you can comply. I have tested it myself and it does a very good job of helping. The only issues I had with it were, some of the questions were hard to answer if you weren't currently up to date on laws and such. (When trying the site out, uou can always contact us with any questions you may have, anytime....Glenn Salter, Compliance & Safety First, 909-481-7223. WE WILL HELP!)
3. Take advantage of training and educational programs.
Now that you know what needs to be done, it’s time to execute. Get the help you need to ensure that you and your employees are prepared to handle safety and health hazards in the workplace. OSHA offers Training Tools, Educational Programs and Resources that are administered by the OSHA Directorate of Training and Education. COMSAF has helped so many other businesses like yours and can help you achieve all you should to be compliant with OSHA ( and any other compliance regulations you may be needing.)
4. Request an on-site consultation for review.
Even before you have completed your workplace safety changes, now is the time to work with Compliance & Safety First to sign up for a free on-site consultation service. COMSAF will work with YOU to identify workplace hazards, provide advice on compliance with OSHA standards and assist in establishing injury and illness prevention programs. Once we get everything in order....we will actually show you how OSHA can be your best friend and even help your business.
