The primary objective for the development of a safety and health program is to establish a standard approach to ensure employee safety and health. There are specific regulatory standards that require employers to have subject-specific programs in writing. Steel CIty Safety can assist our clients to develop written programs that will focus on compliance and effectiveness. Another consideration is that many regulatory standards call for certain documents to be generated and maintained. Some of the subjects that are applicable to industry and construction include (BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO):
SAFETY AND HEALTH AUDITS
Steel City Safety can provide a qualified safety professional to visit worksites and facilities to conduct a safety and health walkthrough (audit). The process involved with a walkthrough typically involves an initial meeting (on site or teleconference) to establish the scope of the walkthrough, followed by the visit (with or without a company representative), a summary meeting, and closed with a formal report of findings. Each report will include recommendations for corrective action.
Are your employees working with hazardous chemicals or potentially exposed to lead, asbestos, hexavalent chromium, or other hazardous substances? What about noise exposure? Employers are required to assess the workplace and ensure workers are not exposed above established limits [i.e. OSHA permissable exposure limit (PELs), The American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH)® Threshold Limit Values (TLVs)®, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Recommended Exposure Limits, etc.] Steel City Safety can help with health hazard assessments and conduct sampling according to the appropriate sampling and analytical method. Additionally, Steel City Safety can provide yan easy-to-understand summary of the results.

OSHA COMPLIANCE ASSISTANCE
Steel City Safety will ensure that services provided are in the best interest of the employee and employer. When applicable, OSHA standards will be the basis for program development, implementation, and training. Additionally, SCS professionals will provide insight on OSHA interpretations of the standards, which are accessible through the OSHA website (www.osha.gov); we can assist our clients to locate the relevant interpretations, guidelines, and requirements.
Have you been cited by OSHA? There is a 15 day period from receipt of the citations to respond. We can help you with the response, informal conference, and cost-effective corrective actions (when applicable).
