"Overall Company Safety Plan" The Final Analysis

This year has slipped by pretty quickly. I’m sure that in the final analysis we’ve all had some wins and some losses. I pray that you’ve had more in the wins column. This is the time of the year of course that you’ll want to make sure that your OSHA record keeping plan is up to date and compliant for the mandated OSHA standard 29CFR 1904. Additionally your OSHA Form 300a for 2013 is due for posting from February 1st to the end of April for all to see, like bearing the soul of the company. So if you are the person charged with this task it’s also a good time of the year to review your overall company safety plan.

Your “Overall Company safety Plan” is a very important document. Not just for OSHA requirements, but it provides a road map for your company’s safety environment. If you haven’t already done so, then you should really familiarize yourself with “Process Safety”, or “Job Safety Analysis”. This is also a good time of the year to update your “Employee safety Handbook”. There are so many topics to consider when reviewing your “Overall Company Safety Plan” Have you considered “Emergency & Disaster Preparedness”, Crisis Management”, Defensive Driving”, “Personal Protective Equipment” including the use of safety footwear? Something not necessarily related to safety but should be recognized as a very important part of team building is “Preventing Discrimination In The Workplace” There are just so many topics to consider, if you don’t have a safety committee, perhaps you should take a look at creating one. This will enable you to get additional help in identifying hazards, and also sharing in the responsibility of creating a safe working environment, and identifying other potential topics.

“Last One Out” No, don’t turn the lights out, but turn the lights on. Familiarize yourself with the many on line courses, safety videos, editable power point presentations, and written plans, available. They are all designed to give you, your employees and families a safer environment both at work, in the office and at home. In closing we would like to wish all of you a very Blessed Christmas and safe New Year. This will be made easier if you have an “Overall Company Safety Plan”.
