During this hands-on course, we review basic fire prevention measures, the 4 classes of fires and their corresponding extinguisher class, the fuel and ignition sources surrounding you at your facility, and the hands-on use of the PASS fire extinguisher method. We will keep you OSHA compliant and the training both simple and effective.
Our Testing/Sampling Services
OSHA expects that you as an employer are keeping your employees safe from a number of hazardous substances they may come in contact with. Each hazardous material has a Personal Exposure Limit (PEL) assigned to it by OSHA. Basically put, this is an allowable amount of contact each employee may have with a particular substance. We have the equipment necessary to perform the sampling and a longstanding relationship with the lab to ensure you receive accurate results and maintain both safety and compliance within the industrial hygiene aspect of your site. Some of the common substances we test for are:
Synthetic mineral fibers
OSHA Hearings & Fine Reduction
We routinely assist companies through OSHA Informal Hearings to reduce the severity of their citations and associated fines. We have built a solid reputation as a company that can drastically reduce your fines by means of expert evaluation of each citation and providing OSHA compliant corrective actions. Below are some of our recent fine reductions:
On top of fine reduction, we argue to modify the category of citations. The most common we successfully change is from "Serious" to "Other Than Serious." This will help keep a future incident from turning into a "Repeat" or "Willful" violation. If you have a citation, it is far cheaper to hire our company than to accept the penalty, so reach out to us so we can assist you with your citation; big or small.
Safety Manual Development
Our safety manuals have been reviewed by OSHA for over 15 years and continue to pass their tests. Our consultants will work with you to establish a safety manual that is pertinent to your scope of work and ensure that each area of operation is covered in these written programs. As an active client, we will routinely audit the written programs to ensure they remain up-to-date and OSHA compliant. If you need a safety manual for your company, give us a call.
