Safety Program Manuals
Why reinvent the wheel when you can have your
safety manual developed for you?
Remember, a safety and health manual is a plan put into practice. Keep your safety program on track by periodically checking its status.
Any good management system requires periodic review. Take a careful look at each component of your safety and health program to determine what is working well and what changes are needed. Any necessary improvements can be turned into new safety and health objectives for the coming year. Developing new action plans to implement these improvements will continue progress toward an effective safety and health program, reduce your safety and health risks, and increase efficiency and profit.
It is important to document your activities. The best way to evaluate the success of your safety and health program is to have documentation of what you have done, which provides guidance on how you can make it work even better.
Establishing a quality safety and health management system will take time and involve some resources, but you should be pleased with the results. Employees will feel reassured because of your commitment to their safety and health on the job. You may save money through increased productivity and reduced workers' compensation insurance costs. You may gain increased respect in your community. The tangible and intangible rewards for a solid safety and health program far outweigh the cost of an accident, injury or workplace fatality.
Having a safety manual will ensure you have a roadmap to OSHA compliance. You can select from our resources and do it yourself, or we can work with you to develop a comprehensive safety manual.
