Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

OSHA has extended its Recordkeeping National Emphasis Program (NEP) through early 2012.   They are looking for employers who are underreporting injuries and illnesses, and they are not leaving any stone unturned. 

 Safety Training Resources is helping Missouri employers track and record injuries and illnesses in compliance with the OSHA recordkeeping standard.  In addition to helping you avoid costly OSHA citations, smart recordkeeping practices can also help you make injury-reducing and profit-boosting improvements by allowing you to learn from past mistakes.

Safety Training Resources will help your management team better understand the key elements of an effective recordkeeping program and design a system that will track and record your injuries and illnesses in compliance with the OSHA recordkeeping standard.  Our training strategy will ensure the following:

  • The proper use of the three OSHA required forms: OSHA Form 300, OSHA Form 301, and OSHA Form 300A  
  • Where to get the forms to use, and how to complete them properly
  • Which incidents must be reported and which merely need to be recorded
  • How to differentiate between medical treatment and first aid, and why the distinction matters
  • Which cases require restricted work activity or days away from work, and how to record the number of days
  • How to maintain employees’ privacy when reporting an incident

In addition,  by improving your recordkeeping, Safety Training Resources can help you:

  • Measure the effectiveness of your safety program

Safety Training Resources advises Missouri employers on excessive noise levels….

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

Safety Training Resources offers on-site consultation services that are independent from OSHA's enforcement efforts.

Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible for providing safe and healthful workplaces for their employees. OSHA‘s role is to assure these conditions for America’s working men and women by setting and enforcing standards, and providing training, education and assistance.

“Hearing loss caused by excessive noise levels remains a serious occupational health problem in this country,” said Dr. David Michaels, assistant secretary of labor for occupational safety and health.

Thousands of workers every year continue to suffer from preventable hearing loss due to high workplace noise levels. Since 2004, the Bureau of Labor Statistics has reported that nearly 125,000 workers have suffered significant, permanent hearing loss. In 2008 alone, BLS reported more than 22,000 hearing loss cases, and OSHA remains committed to its emphasis on finding ways to reduce this toll.

Missouri employers can obtain advice from Safety Training Resources on addressing noise hazards. Safety Training Resources offers on-site consultation services that are independent from OSHA‘s enforcement efforts. On-site consultations identify workplace hazards, provide advice on compliance with OSHA standards, and assist in establishing safety and health management systems.

Safety Training Resources recommends initiating a robust compliance adherence effort that enhances your technical understanding of the standard and implements inexpensive, effective engineering controls for dangerous noise levels.
