All manufacturing and industrial companies are different and must comply with a broad range of safety and health compliance regulations. Controlling the rising cost of doing business has forced many companies to rely on outside expertise. As productivity quotas increase, companies must manage safety issues that directly affect the bottom line.

A safety preparedness program will prevent injury from occurring at your workplace. A safety preparedness program will save your company hours of logistical work and wasted aggravation. And last but not least, although it is a money investment, your returns are almost guaranteed to save your company money in the long run. Since being serviced by Safety On Hand, many companies' Experience Modification Factor (EMF) has decreased significantly saving them tens of thousands of dollars per year

 Compliance



The Occupational Safety and Health (OSHA) is a U.S. federal agency under the Department Of Labor. The mission of OSHA is to save lives, prevent injuries and protect the health of America's workers. To accomplish this, federal and state governments must work in partnership with the more than 100 million working men and women and their six and a half million employers who are covered by the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970.

OSHA and its state partners have approximately 2100 inspectors, plus complaint discrimination investigators, engineers, physicians, educators, standards writers, and other technical and support personnel spread over more than 200 offices throughout the country. This staff establishes protective standards and vigorously enforces those standards.

OSHA investigations are equally unpleasant as the fines. In many cases OSHA orders a plant to be shut while an investigation is conducted. With high overhead expenses of a plant and no income due to no production, companies can be forced to go out of business during an OSHA investigation.

By implementing an OSHA compliance program, comprehensive safety training, and proper record keeping, you not only have nothing to worry about but are creating a safer environment for your employees, clients and yourself.

Show me the money...

The math is quite simple.

If work injuries cost Americans $146.6 billion in 2002, which amounts to $1,060 per worker;

            why not invest LESS per worker for safety preparedness?
