Safety Committee Support
Build a Better Safety Culture
Should you have a safety committee in your workplace? Whether you are required to have a safety committee due to regulatory compliance, number of employees or state guidelines, it is certainly a good idea to have one.
Every employer would agree they do not want to see any of their employees get injured. Establishing a safety committee is one exceptional tool to help minimize an employee’s exposure or potential to injury, accidents and illness.
OECS can help start a Safety Committee from the ground up or meet you where you are at. Our team will provide a “How to Guide” which consists of establishing the committee structure, agendas, topics, utilizing audit results, implementing a Safety Scorecard, etc. After a Safety Committee has been established, an OECS Associate can serve as a liaison to answer questions and create goals.
OECS will participate and provide professional expertise, answer questions, and provide any support necessary for the Safety Committee and members.
OECS has been a huge assistance in helping us provide useful, current, relevant training topics that are somewhat tailored to our work crew and needs. Ari Cook keeps each training session engaging and fun by getting our employees involved. When available, he will add in examples from our facility audits to connect the topics directly to our workspaces to encourage greater discussion about improvements that can be made and the positive things that are being done already. We believe the partnership we have with OECS has helped us maintain a low incident and injury rate within our facility as well as greatly assisted with staying current on OSHA/WSI rules. Their assistance is a vital part of our WSI safety programs each year and we look forward to continuing our relationship in the years to come.
With the assistance of OECS, our employees have become even more safety conscience than ever before. They give us a safety presentation each month along with assistance we may need anytime. We are a manufacturing company and in 2019, we had ZERO recordable incidents! I believe OECS has assisted us in the great achievement.
We greatly value the engaging, in-person monthly health and safety trainings OECS provides our team as well as the on-site facility audits. Providing a safe and healthy work environment for employees is a top priority for our company. Our company didn’t have personnel who were experts in identifying workplace hazards and remediating these issues. Hiring OECS provided us with this much-needed expertise.
We value their engaging in-person monthly health and safety trainings and on-site facility audits. After each audit they give us an assessment of potential hazards we need to address to prevent accidents in the workplace. OECS works closely with our management team to ensure an OSHA compliant workplace.
