Some employees across many different industries work in inherently dangerous or hazardous conditions on a daily basis. The company is required by OSHA to take precautions to ensure the employee safe and healthy. A Certified Industrial Hygienist can work with your company to ensure a healthy and safe work environment for all employees.
A Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) will visit your facility to witness firsthand how each employee performs their daily roles. The CIH will document and compile a detailed report on recommendations to improve the safety at the facility. Once implemented, these changes will reduce the accidents or injuries that occur on the jobsite. This can save the company expensive worker compensation claims and improve productivity by keeping the employees healthy and fulfilling their daily roles.
OSHA violations can cost the company large fines or even halt production until the violation is corrected. Certain roles require employees to operate from heights which could create a hazardous environment. The Certified Industrial Hygienist could implement different precautions to ensure the employee is protected. Fall protection such as harnesses and safety lines could be used by the employee to safe guard against a slip.
The Company must create a culture of safety that is absorbed by each employee. The employee should be required utilize any Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) that is provided. Any non-compliance by an employee should be quickly addressed to ensure the message is completely adopted by all employees. Employees have a duty to protect employees to ensure the company's success and to avoid harsh penalties.

The CIH can quickly implement solutions to make a notable improvement in the working conditions at the facility. Frequent visits at regular intervals by the Certified Industrial Hygienist will ensure the company stays current with the latest OSHA mandates. This professional can also be the company's representative if OSHA ever made a surprise visit at your facility. The CIH has the background and knowledge to appropriately answer any of OSHA's questions. The company's interest will be looked after, rather than relying on an Insurance Compliance Officer that is not looking out for the company's interest. A safe working environment can improve worker morale and productivity day after day. People are one of the most expensive components to any budget and should be invested in and protected to ensure the company's continued success.
