|Digital Safety Scoreboard|
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) offers on-site consulting services to both small- and medium-sized businesses. Based on its observations, your company will receive candid feedback on ways to improve overall safety and health performance. There is no fee assessment, since the programs are primarily funded by the federal government and all correspondence will be kept confidential.
One design-build construction firm, The Haskell Company, took this opportunity in 2002 in an effort to reduce its high injury and illness rates. Beforehand, the company also was plagued by a laundry list of OSHA citations. OSHA made the following suggestions for improvement:
- A comprehensive review of the contractor’s safety and health program(s)
- A qualification review of subcontractor’s site personnel
- Enhancements to the Code of Safe Practices
- Recordkeeping of sub-contractor injury and illness statistics for evaluation purposes
