Workplace safety training programs that help you and your employees proactively prevent accidents.

Designing safety plans that mirror unique practices and procedures in your workplace can be your best offense against accidents. The safety experts at G&A can take a deep dive into your organization and customize a comprehensive safety training program that arms your workers with the skills they need to avoid hazardous situations.

It’s easy for employees to become comfortable with their surroundings, particularly if they work in an office environment. Slips, trips, and falls, however, are among the most common accidents in the workplace. G&A’s safety training development process helps to educate your employees about everyday hazards and major threats so they can maintain constant awareness and develop workplace safety protocol habits that become second nature.

Your employees know your company’s processes and procedures better than anyone, and their input is essential to developing a comprehensive safety training program. At the onset of employee safety training development, we work with your managers and employees to identify and document the large and small tasks they execute each day. This allows us to map out hazards and design a tailored program with job- and site-specific safety training protocols.

The daily implementation of safety practices is just as important as the development of a strong safety training plan. To ensure your customized safety procedures are being put into practice, G&A can perform workplace safety inspections and audits and recommend any necessary revisions to your program. G&A’s employee training services include:

  • Development of a written Employee Safety Manual
  • Regular safety audits/inspections
  • Post-audit/inspection safety reports and trainings
  • Onsite and online safety training materials

A customized safety manual for your employee training program.

Most workplaces have policies, guidelines, rules, and regulations, but they’re not always documented. If you have an employee safety manual and associated processes and procedures, have you reviewed them lately to see if an update is necessary? The safety professionals at G&A have extensive experience creating and updating customized employee safety manuals and we can help you pull together and document the processes and procedures that will serve as the backbone of your workplace safety program.

An employee safety manual contains the policies and procedures your workers should follow to prevent accidents and injuries on the job, and it should align with safety regulations required by OSHA and state and local agencies. The end goal is to prevent workplace injuries and minimize workers’ compensation claims, and to detail what employees should do in the event of an accident or near-miss incident.

Though you may have standard industry rules and procedures in place, no two workplaces are alike. Applying a generic safety manual to your company’s operations won’t provide you with the comprehensive safety measures needed to protect the people in your organization. At G&A, we take the time to learn the specifics of your work environment, and we analyze and outline typical steps that each group of employees take to perform their job(s) safely. In addition, we can:

  • Document general workplace practices
  • Review your emergency response plan, which covers scenarios ranging from natural disaster to workplace violence
  • Compile all data into a format that works with your employee safety training program

Documenting your safety processes and procedures can be complicated and labor-intensive. To help ensure you have proper safety measures in place and documented, and to cut down on time spent managing it all, G&A can get the job done and add value to the process. Our services include:

  • Development of a written Employee Safety Manual
  • Regular safety audits/inspections
  • Post-audit/inspection safety reports and trainings
  • Onsite and online safety training materials

Make accident prevention a priority in your workplace.

G&A’s workplace safety experts help you develop and implement safety protocols and policies that protect your employees and your business, and with the proper training and preparation in place, you can better prevent workplace accidents. By providing you with the tools you need to drive home the importance of workplace safety, we can also help you combat employee safety fatigue, which occurs when employees, over time, grow lax in following safety rules and procedures.

Don’t underestimate the power of a safety manual to protect your employees and save lives.

You acknowledge the importance of owning and using your employee safety manual, but have you communicated that effectively to your employees? Creating a culture of workplace safety succeeds best when anchored to a comprehensive workplace safety manual. G&A can pave the way by creating and/or updating your customized manual, and as a must-read for new and existing employees, you can reinforce your safety processes and procedures on a regular basis.

Invest in a partnership that elevates all aspects of your workplace safety program.

G&A can help your company manage risk, prevent workplace accidents, create an employee safety training program, maintain safety records, and more.

Weave OHSA guidelines into the fabric of your workplace safety practices.

While full compliance with Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) standards is your ultimate goal, it’s difficult at times to ensure that your company is covering all regulatory bases outlined in this ever-evolving law. The safety experts at G&A have the training and knowledge necessary to guide your OHSA compliance efforts, provide training as needed, and keep you abreast of changes to the law that may require a shift in your workplace safety procedures.

Employer responsibilities under OSHA

OHSA has a team of inspectors who visit worksites to determine if employers are complying with applicable rules and regulations. G&A can ensure you are compliant with employer responsibilities under OHSA including, but not limited to:

  • Providing a workplace free from serious recognized hazards
  • Making sure employees have and use safe tools and equipment and properly maintain this equipment
  • Using color codes, posters, labels, or signs to warn employees of potential hazards
  • Establishing or updating operating procedures and communicating them so that employees follow safety and health requirements
  • Providing safety training in a language and vocabulary workers can understand
  • Posting OSHA citations at or near the work area involved.

OSHA training requirements

Many OSHA standards have safety- and health-training requirements attached, so employees in various industries are provided the necessary skills and knowledge to safely perform their jobs. It is your responsibility to implement relevant training programs for employees, or to facilitate those programs through a third party.

G&A will help you put systems in place to prevent workplace accidents, and our safety specialists will study your job and office sites to identify and address potential OHSA compliance concerns. Additional services offered include:

  • Investigations of employee accidents and near-miss incidents
  • Full consultation and assistance with OSHA surprise visits
  • Maintenance of backup safety records and other documentation

Build a safety culture that encourages employee engagement and buy-in.
