Meeting OSHA Standards?
Did you know? Occupational Safety & Health Administration’s (OSHA) mission is to assure safe and healthful workplaces by setting and enforcing standards, and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance. This means OSHA will visit your facility to ensure a safe working environment, free from recognized employee hazards.
Did you know? OSHA, under the OSH Act, Section 5.a.(1), states,
“Employers are liable to provide a safe and healthful workplace environment. Employers must comply with all applicable OSHA standards.”
GENERAL DUTY CLAUSE OF THE OSH ACT
SEC. 5. DUTIES

(1) shall furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees;
This means fines will be issued if your facility is not in compliance.
Worker’s Comp Decreasing Your Profits?
Did you know? Manual material handling is the principal source of compensable injuries in the US work force, and 4 out of 5 of these injuries will affect the lower back. This means your profits could be at risk with potentially higher worker’s comp claims.
Did you know? The National Safety Council estimates the nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses at 3.1 million among industry employers, resulting in an incident rate of 3.5% worker’s compensation cases per 100 equivalent full-time workers. This means without proper material handling equipment your workers could be at risk.
