safety/health management

making the workplace a better place

 

Ensure sustainability and accountability of your organization, while strengthening your relationship with your employees

Safety programs and training provide the base level of physical safety. Take it to the next step by establishing a Safety and Health Management System (SHMS), and ensure that your employees have a solid level of trust – and feel psychologically safe.

A well-established SHMS does this by codifying and defining the reporting systems and accountabilities so there are clear processes for reporting and responding to problems and issues. It provides a means for addressing the root causes of issues, rather than dealing only with the consequences and aftermaths.

Dimensions offers expertise and guidance in the development of effective SHMSs focusing on the following areas:

  • Accident/Incident Investigations
  • Contract Safety Professionals
  • Emergency Response
  • First Aid Response Team Development Drills
  • Job Hazard Analysis Initiatives
  • Manager Safety Overview
  • OSHA 10- or 30-hour Courses
  • Safety Committee Development
  • Safety Walkthroughs, Policy Review, Interviews and Focus Groups

 We can help you better meet the requirements and recommendations of ANSI Z10 and ISO 18001, and determine your readiness for Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) status (also known as STAR in North Carolina). The VPP recognizes employers and workers in the private industry and federal agencies who have implemented effective safety and health management systems and maintain injury and illness rates below national Bureau of Labor Statistics averages for their respective industries. If you qualify for VPP, your organization is recognized for having its management, labor, and OSHA work cooperatively and proactively to prevent fatalities, injuries, and illnesses in the workplace. It is recognition of a physically and  psychologically safe workplace.
