Occupational Safety & Health

Our on-site Risk Management assessment identifies potential hazards or exposures that can result in employee injuries and provides solutions for the hazards or exposures identified.

Fleet/Driver Safety

Fleet safety should be a high priority whether your operation is small or large. Fleet safety starts with a strong fleet safety policy and an emphasis on driver selection, vehicle maintenance and defensive driving training. We can assist with designing a fleet safety policy and program, evaluating existing fleet safety policies/procedures; developing driver selection procedures; and providing resources for defensive driver training.

Product Safety

Product liability is often an overlooked risk exposure. Product liability exposures are present anytime a company manufactures or directly imports a proprietary part or product; an Original Equipment Manufacturer product is significantly altered, changed, installed or serviced/repaired; and a product is damaged in storage or shipping. We can assist with the evaluation of the potential for product liability claims by reviewing your operations and products to identify potential product liability exposures.

Ergonomics

We evaluate processes, work stations and methods in your operation that present exposures to cumulative trauma disorders, such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, lower back injuries and other related conditions, and provide solutions for the exposures identified.

Property Protection

The protection of your facilities from fire, explosions and other perils is a high priority as many businesses do not recover from these types of losses. We will provide evaluation of your facility, including identification of potential fire hazards; evaluation of fire protection, detection and suppression systems; and a review of fire prevention measures.

Public Liability

Businesses have varying degrees of public liability. Businesses that have members of the general public on their premises on a regular basis have a higher degree of liability, and thus incur a higher degree of responsibility for the safety of their customers. We will evaluate the premises to identify potential liability hazards and/or exposures, including conditions of sidewalks, parking lots and entryways; floor conditions; emergency egress; and many other potential sources of liability. We’ll offer recommendations to improve controls or reduce hazards or exposures.
