Safety is the word of the game!† No, this isnít a rendition of Grease, but it is an attempt to shed light on a very real issue that is happening.† Some manufacturing businesses are choosing to not update their Safety Plans.† This is has serious consequences and could potentially cause your employees great harm.

A safety program is the framework of your facility.† It contains all the rules and regulations by which your business is based on.† Not only does it have a drug testing protocol, but it also tells everyone when training is held and how often.† The program is often times huge and extensive, but when OHSA comes knocking on your door, then do you really want to skimp out on safety?

Currently there is no one set standard safety program that span across all industries.† OSHA does not have a safety program guide, they do not have an online quiz that you can take that will tell you all the different chapters you need to include in your safety program.† They DO have an extensive website full of regulation codes with sub-parts and articles that give a confusing list of doís and doníts.

If safety is the word, then knowing which programs you need is the novel!† How do you decide which programs to include and which programs you donít need?† And then did you know that for every program you have you have to have training on it?† This gets very confusing very quickly.† One way to get definitive answers in simple terms is to hire a Certified Safety Professional (CSP).

A CSP is an individual that has a bachelorís degree in safety and has had at the very least 3 yearsí experience working in a job where all he does on a day to day basis is handle safety issues.† Those jobs are difficult to come by especially if you do not have any previous job experience, so the typical CSP has been in the work force for at the very least 5 years before they attempt the CSP test.† I know what your next question is, how hard could the CSP exam beóitís safety for goodness sakes!† Well CSP exam is one of the most failed professional exams.† It is tough!

Now that youíve hired a CSP to come and take a look at your facility you should be right as rain!† Well actually there is a little more to it than that.† If you havenít had your safety programs updated in the past yearHealth Fitness Articles, or if you havenít established a safety program click here to find a Certified Safety Professional in your area.
