Employers have a basic duty to establish a safe workplace and resolve and eliminate any threat to employee safety. Risk assessments and security training are excellent ways to maintain your compliance with the “General Duty Clause” of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), who requires employers establish and maintain a workplace free from “Recognized Hazards.” You accomplish this by properly identifying hazards, analyzing risks, and developing plans to resolve your exposure to these hazards.
Your proactive approach to security and developing a culture for safety can help you avoid incurring thousands, or even millions of dollars in fines from violence and ignored exposures. Risk assessments can change the direction of your business by developing a plan of action that works to prevent, protect and secure what matters most to you.
Your Return on Investment:
Emotion is your most significant reason to act and gives you the best return when making decisions. When you demonstrate you care for others, you earn their respect, trust and provide peace of mind. Happy employees feel better and are more likely to be healthy, have better morals and be more productive. A safe environment attracts more qualified employees, helps with retention and ensures you optimal productivity.
You save money by maintaining your legal compliance and avoiding insurance claims, workers compensation, fines, negligence claims and medical, mental, and rehabilitation expenses. Your new culture for safety attracts quality employees willing to go the “extra mile”, give you optimal performance and remain loyal.
Your time is your greatest asset. Saving time is essential for your continued growth and success. You will save time by reducing your number of serious incidents and on clean-up expenses, closures, employee absence, turnover and dealing with legal matters, negligence claims and unwanted media attention faced with the spotlight after a serious incident.
