Misunderstanding OSHA regulations can cost you money. An in-compliance safety program will alert you to a possible injury before it happens. What is the lockout tag out regulation all about, and how to comply with this regulation?
To lead employers step-by-step through what a well-run program looks like. To provide recommendations on how to install the program, to provide OSHA definition of training, and how to enforce the program, with immediate signs that the program is working.
OSHA was created years ago because injury and fatalities were not acceptable. The program has been successful in reducing injuries, increasing productivity due to avoiding loss of man-hours, and reducing increased worker’s compensation premiums.
It works on the same theory as car insurance. If you get speed tickets, your carrier knows there is an accident around the corner. The deterrent is to increase the cost of your insurance. Increased frequency of injuries means there is the possibility of a severe injury or a fatality. The deterrent is citations and increased cost of worker’s compensation premiums.
