During the fourth quarter of 2016, OSHA unveiled their Recommended Practices for Safety and Health Programs. The guideline represents 30 years of experience with learning best practices, knowledge gained from the Voluntary Protection Program, and awareness of today’s dynamic workplace. In addition to being the gatekeepers of workplace safety regulations, OSHA offers a structured model to small and medium sized companies to help them build their own integrated safety/health program.

The guideline offers a proactive approach to safety that goes beyond compliance and takes into account leading indicators such as creating a learning atmosphere that trains management of their safety responsibilities, engaging employees, assessing hazards, program evaluation and communicating across the entire workforce.

With the published resources, OSHA is now giving small to medium sized companies the same tools and safety/health process approach that large corporations have been using successfully for years.

In this presentation, the speaker will address how the many pieces of safety/health are put together to fit into a larger management system – where the whole is greater than the sum parts. Host employers who hire contractors can utilize the seven core elements to assess their supply chain companies – using a beyond compliance approach to vetting their suppliers.

Using a leading indicator, continuous process improvement approach to safety/health will provide more insight on a contractor’s ability to work safely than the traditional compliance alone view. The speaker will take the audience through the seven core elements of OSHA’s Recommended Practices for Safety/Health Programs. The audience will see that the within each element, are factors that are not compliance-based – but are good business practices. 

Key Topics

  • Host employer qualification of contractors
  • New guidelines from OSHA
  • Safety management systems assessment
  • Safety beyond compliance
  • Leading indicators
