Let OSTS Be Your Safety Department!
Program Management safety services are designed to ensure that the employer is maintaining the three primary, proactive safety activities that help to ensure employees understand their safety responsibilities, follow safe work practices, and fully participate in and support the company’s safety program. The benefits include elimination / reduction of safety-related incidents, increased employee morale, reduction of Workers’ Compensation premiums, and OSHA compliance.
OSTS will help guide our PM clients with the development of and management of a safety activities calendar that is most-beneficial to the client’s needs / requirements.
The three primary ongoing Program Management services include:
- Safety Committee Meetings
Safety Committee Meetings include facilitation and regulatory guidance of meeting subject matter. OSTS will act as technical support for OSHA requirements, provide solution-based recommendations (i.e. what has worked for other clients) for safety concerns, and aid on keeping meetings focused and on schedule.
- Employee Safety Training – 90% of our classes are available in English and Spanish*
Employee training sessions may include lecture, classroom hands-on activities, plant/shop/job site hands-on activities, powerpoint presentations, video support and/or handout support materials as determined necessary. OSTS, Inc will encourage questions and provide appropriate, company-positive responses.
For coursework that warrants Certificates of Completion/Qualification, students may be required to take and pass written, verbal, demonstration tests/examinations.
* OSTS does not conduct bilingual classes (i.e. English and Spanish presentation in same classroom at the same time). Dual language classroom presentation is not beneficial for any individuals involved, particularly the students.
- Facility Safety Inspections
COMPREHENSIVE INSPECTION REPORTS – Facility safety inspections include hazard identification, regulatory explanation, regulatory identification, citation category (i.e. Regulatory, General, Serious) and a tracking field for corrective action(s) related to items uncovered during inspection. These inspection reports will be used for discussion in the next Safety Committee meeting. Written Program content review is not included by default and must be requested by client. Program content review will incur additional cost.
