What You Need to Know
Fact: You are eighteen times more likely to encounter an active shooter or incident of workplace violence in your place of business than a fire. Workplace violence has become so prevalent that an aggressive intruder or an active shooter must be considered a risk to employee safety. OSHA says, under the General Duty Clause, that the employer must provide a safe work environment.
Plan For It
The liabilities and responsibilities of business owners and leaders are immense. Planning and preparation are key, but only talking about it or watching a video is not enough. Avoid injury, productivity loss, employee turnover, and even death by relying on OECS’s deep expertise.

- A plan for your leadership team, employees, and facilities
- Practice for a potential event – these exercises are known to save people’s lives
- Proactively identifying early indicators of potential problems down the road
- Training for all levels to raise confidence and be prepared
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.
