Safety Compliance Management and Safety Compliance Services
Worker safety compliance is about more than just making sure you follow the law. It’s about making your company a great place to work. Investing in safety compliance services from National PEO will solidify your reputation for excellence.
Also, safety compliance management helps you become a recognized local or national leader in your industry. An impeccable safety record helps you attract both eager investors and exceptional employees to your business.
How Safety Services Create a Business That’s Built to Last
In October 1987, Paul O’Neill became CEO of Alcoa. O’Neill, who would later serve as President George W. Bush’s Secretary of the Treasury, launched a comprehensive worker safety initiative. When O’Neill retired 13 years later, his worker safety initiative had led to changes that quintupled Alcoa’s income. By changing this important feature of how Alcoa did business, O’Neill transformed an industry giant.
Many safety and compliance issues happen because employers try to cut corners. In an effort to keep expenses down, they take shortcuts that put workers at risk. These actions are what the old saying refers to as “penny wise and pound foolish.” They save a few dollars today, but they expose you to millions of dollars in future liabilities.
Smart business owners know that a safe working environment is crucial to creating a long-lasting business. Spending a few thousand dollars on a safety improvement today is nothing compared to paying millions in damages to an injured worker tomorrow. When you consider working with a safety compliance company like National PEO, think of it as an investment in your business future. Create a company that’s built to last, just like Paul O’Neill did, by making safety your top priority.
Why Safety Matters
At its heart, an investment in worker safety is just the right thing to do. However, it also creates significant financial value for your company. According to a study in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, companies with comprehensive safety, health, and wellness programs almost tripled S&P 500 returns in simulated investment scenarios. They increased revenue by improving safety in several key ways:
- Fewer workers’ compensation claims. Businesses that work with a safety compliance company often have fewer workers’ compensation claims, and they pay less in overall employee medical expenses.
- No OSHA penalties. OSHA penalties can cost a significant amount of money. Working with a safety services company can help you avoid costly fines.
- Lower payroll costs. By preventing injuries in the workplace, you’ll avoid the costs associated with employee disability payments, new employee hiring and training, and conducting accident investigations.
- Better productivity. A safe workplace runs smoothly and with fewer interruptions. Your employees are more productive, and better productivity means big financial returns on your safety services investment.
What National PEO Offers
Inspection. National PEO conducts safety inspections in the same manner as an OSHA inspection. You’ll receive a comprehensive inspection, a full written report, and photos of safety hazards. In addition to offering general business inspections, we also provide safety compliance services to the food service, the construction, manufacturing, and health care industries.
Audit. A safety and compliance audit of your facility includes the same inspection as above. In addition, we provide a review of the company’s current written safety procedures. We also comb through all of your OSHA 300 logs for the past five years to identify safety and compliance red flags. Additionally, we conduct an exhaustive review of all existing safety-related paperwork. This review includes accident reports and supporting documentation, Hazardous Material Management Plan, written environmental program procedures, and other vital documents.
Abatement. After identifying the main risks to worker safety, we’ll help you to prioritize and eliminate them. If you’ve already had an OSHA inspection and they’ve given you a list of issues, we can get right to the abatement. When we complete your action plan, you’ll be in compliance with OSHA safety and compliance regulations. Your company will also be a much safer place to work.
Safety program. After you eliminate serious hazards, we’ll help you to launch a safety program for your workers. You’ll teach them new procedures, inform them of important laws, and help them stay safe while they perform their jobs.
Safety training. National PEO offers a comprehensive catalog of safety training classes. We have general classes that relate to most industries, and we also offer classes dedicated to specific industries.
