Workplace Safety

In today’s litigious climate, a robust safety program is a requirement for proactive employers. Effective safety practices are vital for worker safety and for the protection of a business from OSHA fines, high workers’ compensation costs and excessive liability. As a professional safety source to the Texas Department of Insurance, our team offers a wide range of safety services.

Safety Programs and Training

Our consultants develop safety handbooks that communicate an organization’s safety and health policies, standards and procedures to employees. We can also design and implement an incentive program to promote adherence to these policies and to reward employees for achieving safety goals.

We also develop and deliver safety training programs with accompanying employee communications to establish an ongoing commitment to workplace safety and to maintain compliance with internal safety programs and state and/or federal requirements.

Safety Inspections

Our team can conduct safety inspections of your company’s commercial property and equipment, review organizational procedures and evaluate compliance with OSHA and related safety standards. We also develop a report that summarizes the inspection results and offers recommendations for corrective action. In the event of an OSHA investigation, we will represent and assist you in this process.

Workers’ Compensation Strategy

For businesses in the state of Texas, our firm can evaluate clients who prefer not to subscribe to workers’ compensation insurance coverage. Our guidance includes recommendations on the advisability of this decision. We also assist during the process of workers’ compensation insurance discontinuation to help ensure regulatory compliance.
