Proactively identifying safety issues and compliance gaps allows you to quickly take meaningful action that dramatically reduces the risk of an injury. Conducting routine audits and assessments is an excellent way to find these hazards in your workplace before OSHA does. It’s also the best way to keep your workers safe.
Our safety consultants will conduct a site audit and thorough assessment of your company’s safety policies, procedures, and roles and responsibilities to identify your company's compliance gaps, then recommend meaningful action and best practices. Our proprietary diagnostic audit includes a scoring and rating system to help you benchmark your results over time, prepare for an actual government, vendor or customer audit, and protect you in the event of litigation.
