Safety Programs At Work

Worker safety is front and center of the workforce.† People are concerned that their work environments might not be as safe as they once thought they were.† Employee safety is so important that OSHA has enlisted the help of the United Nations to help monitor and supervise the Hazard Communication regulations.† OSHA and the UN realized that keeping workers safe is important all over the world, even in countries that donít have an OSHA.

A safety program can be overwhelming, and it definitely does not make for an interesting read, but it has the potential to keep businesses out of trouble if OSHA or the EPA were to show up and do an inspection.† The HASP, or Health And Safety Program as itís sometimes called in the industry, is all encompassing.† It covers the rules and regulations of everything that happens in the plant.† From drug testing to Lock Out Tag Out programs the HASP is the back bone of any industrial facility.

At the time of press OSHA did not have a standard in place for what a HASP should look like.† Instead OSHA has a mountain of regulations that the facility is to follow and maintain.† A HASP takes all the regulations and breaks them down to more manageable pieces.† Typically only the regulations that pertain to a certain plant are included and regulations that do not apply are left out.

Because OSHA does not have a set standard for what a HASP should include it is imperative that a professional is hired to consult.† It is highly advised that either a Certified Safety Professional (CSP) or a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) is hired to create a HASP for any facility or plant needing one.† The CIH and CSP are highly trained and well educated persons on the necessity for safety in the workplace and both are committed to achieving it.

Once the CIH or CSP is hired several things will happen.† The first is a tour of the facility or plant.† Both of the consultants will be looking at how things are being currently overseen and what type of safety measures might already be in existence.† They will want to see any type of safety culture that might already be established.† They will inspect the facility as if it were OSHA so that there is nothing that could be missed.
