Safety doesn’t just happen. We design it.
Safety programs are essential, not only for employees and the public, but also to managing risk on strategic, financial and operational levels. We design a spectrum of safety programs that meet a spectrum of needs, employing a knowledge that sets us apart from the rest. In designing safety programs, we also have a deep personal commitment to the employees as well as the companies we work with.
- Hazard Reduction. Evaluate current protection plans and hazards, and design methods to reduce danger to employees. This includes hazard elimination, hazard reduction, engineering controls, determination of actual exposures and evaluation of current protective equipment. This data is the lynchpin to designing best protective measures that can be effectively implemented.
- Hazard Communication. Don’t leave your employees in the dark regarding the chemicals they are handling. Prove that you care about their health and safety – and it’s required under OSHA regulations at 29 CFR 1910.1200 HazComm plan required by OSHA. We will define all potential chemical exposure hazards, provide meaningful review of Material Safety Data Sheets with employees and show them how to protect themselves.
We design programs that most others cannot.
Ron Harvey’s experience is broad and deep, and his knowledge base is matched by very few in the industry. He understands the challenges to developing effective safety programs in areas that are obscure to most others in the industry. These include and are not limited to:
- Respiratory Protection. Having used respiratory protection for his entire career, Ron Harvey knows how to design a proficient RP plan. If your employees are potentially exposed to airborne hazardous materials, you may must have need this plan. We evaluate employee exposure and determine of the level of protection required under OSHA regulations at 29 CFR 1910.134.
- Chemical Hygiene. With 30 years of experience handling hazardous chemicals, we have relevant experience which translates into an effective chemical hygiene program. Moreover, this is required by OSHA under 29 CFR 1910.1450 for workplaces that qualify as laboratories. We design effective Chemical Hygiene Plans to enable employees to develop the best practices for minimizing exposure. The basic elements include: rules and procedures and protective measures for handling storage, labeling and housekeeping; spills, accidents and emergencies; training and information and waste disposal.
