Are safety services on the top of your mind? If not, they should be.  As a manager or business owner, it is your job to keep your employees and your customers safe.  Given the how challenging it can be to keep an operation running smoothly, things like safety are often put on the backburner.  Not because they aren’t important, simply because it is human nature not to think about workplace safety until there is an accident.  Unfortunately, by the time there is an accident; the expense after the fact is much higher than if you prevented it in the first place.  This is why we’re here.  We can provide the planning, training and services you need to keep your employees safe and prevent future issues down the road.

Our safety services range from the most basic that apply to all businesses, to specific training geared to your industry.  Some of the training that we recommend for everyone includes:

  • CPR/First Aid training.  We can ensure that everyone is certified so that if a fellow employee or customer were in need, they could become the first responders while the professionals are called.
  • Prevention.  We can train your employees to identify safety hazards.  In the process of providing safety services, we have found that a well-trained team is often the best safeguard against future accidents.  It is often the simplest thing like learning to watch for clearance or ensuring that chords are in a certain spot, that can prevent an injury-causing accident.  We can even teach them how to ensure that their personal safety equipment is being worn correctly. 
  • Emergency planning.  We can put a plan in place so that your employees know what to do in the event of an emergency.  This can prevent further damage from occurring and ensure that everyone gets out of the building and to safety quickly.
  • Practicing safe behavior.  Many accidents occur because employees are unaware of what risky behavior looks like.  This can change based on the type of equipment that you are using and the conditions of your work environment.  Being able to identify and implement safe behaviors can further reduce your risk of accidents.

When you engage our services, we will meet with management to determine what gaps there are in safety training, what needs are specific to your business, and any issues that we feel are important to address immediately.  This varies for each business and by working with management, we will ensure that a safety training and maintenance program is put in place for your team.  Some of the industries that we specialize in, include:

  • Construction companies
  • Warehouses
  • Distribution
  • Retail
  • Schools
  • And more!

Keep in mind that if you have ten employees or more, it is a legal requirement that you have a written program in place addressing both illness and workplace safety issues.  This is an OSHA requirement and as part of our safety services, we can create your policies and ensure that all of your employees are informed of how to implement them.
