Auditing and Assessment

Compliance Auditing

We provide an independent and detailed assessment to identify gaps in compliance with OSHA and/or EPA standards.  We identify issues before they cause problems.  We offer flexible solutions for each non compliance issue identified.  In addition to compliance audits we can incorporate an audit that finds gaps in conforming to your internal policies and procedures.

Mock OSHA Inspections

A set of fresh eyes can capture those issues which may have been overlooked or ignored.  Identified issues can be abated before they become major problems. Each issue is presented clearly in an easy to understand format. A solution is offered for each hazard we identify. 

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Assessments

OSHA requires the workplace to be evaluated for hazards that require the use of personal protective equipment.  We can train your employees to perform these assessments, so you are self reliant when the initial assessments are complete, or we can partner with you on an ongoing basis. Either way, we will leave your company with a defendable and easy to use process.  

Job Hazard Analysis

Job hazard assessments are an OSHA requirement and an important foundational tool for any safety and health program.  We use a simple and effective process that will set you up for success.  We believe that the key to getting these right is to include the workers in their development. We provide initial assessments and training to your employees to get you started on the right path.

Training Needs Assessment

We assist companies in determining whether their training programs are effective as well as identify areas in need of improvement.  Safety starts with training.  When employers make their employees aware of hazards and how to control them injuries and ill health can be prevented.

Safety Culture Assessment

Our culture assessment process helps senior leaders understand their current safety culture and make improvements.  We keep it simple and focus on: management leadership, managing risk (hazard identification, assessment, prevention and control), training and continuous improvement.

Electrical Safety

Arc Flash Hazard Assessments for NFPA 70E

We have years of experience in conducting arc flash analysis and electrical coordination studies.  Our electrical engineer is licensed in the following states: IN, IL, OH, VA, MI, MA, AL, MS, TX, AZ and CA. 

NFPA 70E Support

Electrical safety program review, electrical safety program audit, field work audits and facilitation of lockout/tagout program and procedure audits with qualified persons.

NFPA 70E Training

Electricians and maintenance workers who are exposed to electrical hazards must be trained.  We provide NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) 70E training which (according to OSHA) is THE industry standard for electrical safety in the workplace.  We also provide Electrical Arc Flash Analysis.

Electrical PPE Program

It is especially important to not just have the right electrical PPE but ensure the program incorporates all the necessary elements such as: training, use, maintenance, cleaning and care, useful life and changeout and testing schedules.  We can build your program from the ground up or help improve existing programs.

Safety Programs

Machine Safety/Functional Safety

Machine safety assessments must be conducted to ensure compliance with the requirement to protect machine operators from point of operation hazards.  Our risk assessments are based on OSHA, ANSI B11 series standards and ANSI/RIA standards.

Lockout/Tagout

We offer support for your company's Control of Hazardous Energy program needs.  We survey your equipment and build the procedures and energy source markers.  We assist with program development and review. 

Confined Space

The OSHA Permit-Required Confined Spaces standard requires that the employer determine if any existing confined spaces are permit-required. If permit-required confined spaces exist, employees must be informed of the hazards presented by the space and only be allowed into the spaces after a full confined spaces assessment entry program has been written and implemented.  If employees enter into these spaces all hazards must be identified and a method of control must be established.  We can help with all your confined space needs.

Walking/Working Surfaces and Fall Protection

Whether you are in construction or general industry there are new requirements for fall protection and fall protection systems.  If your workers are exposed to fall hazards they must be protected.  Our Civil/Structural Engineer can assist in helping you select the right solution and is licensed in NY, PA, NJ, DE, NJ, WV, VA, OH, IN, MI, WI, KY, TN, NC, SC, GA, FL, AL, MS, AK, OK, TX, CO and AZ.

Powered Industrial Vehicles/Forklift

We offer assistance with program development, review and improvement.  Our approach to this topic is comprehensive.  There are not only responsibilities for operators but for supervisors and pedestrians as well. We can help you with developing your program from the start or improving your existing program.

Crane and Rigging

Whether your in general industry or construction, we can help you develop and improve your programs.  We provide training for overhead and gantry cranes as well as NCCO Certifications for articulating crane, boom truck, digger derrick, mobile crane, service truck, tower, overhead as well as lift director, rigger and signalperson training.

Industrial Hygiene

Qualitative Exposure Assessment

The starting point for assessing chemical exposures in the workplace is the Qualitative Exposure Assessment.  Let our industrial hygienists review your operations to determine an occupational health strategy that is right for your organization.  We utilize the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) Qualitative Exposure Assessment Process.

Chemical Exposure Assessment

Employers are required to identify and evaluate the respiratory hazard(s) in their workplaces. Various types of Occupational Exposure Limits (OELs) have been established by a number of organizations.  We can meet your chemical exposure assessment and analysis needs. We only use AIHA accredited laboratories.

Noise Exposure Assessment

If you need to raise your voice to speak to someone 3 feet away, noise levels might be over 85 decibels. OSHA requires employers to implement a hearing conservation program when noise exposure is at or above 85 decibels averaged over 8 working hours, or an 8-hour time-weighted average (TWA).  We can measure and advise.

Respiratory Protection Program Assistance

The primary objective of the respiratory protection program is to prevent exposure to air contaminated with harmful dusts, fogs, fumes, mists, gases, smokes, vapors, or sprays, and thus to prevent occupational illness. We can help set up your program or improve an existing one.  We offer workplace exposure assessments that allow an employer to match up the proper respirator for the environment, training, program development and respirator fit testing.

Ergonomic Assessments

Work shouldn't hurt.  Awkward postures combined with excessive force lead to employee pain and increased operating costs.  We utilize contemporary methods to evaluate the work station and help lower the strains and stress of work that can prevent employee illnesses.

CPR/AED, First Aid & Bloodborne Pathogens

Basic Life Support (BLS) Provider

The AHA’s BLS course trains participants to promptly recognize several life-threatening emergencies, give high-quality chest compressions, deliver appropriate ventilations and provide early use of an AED. Reflects science and education from the American Heart Association Guidelines Update for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC).  The AHA’s BLS Course is designed for healthcare professionals and other personnel who need to know how to perform CPR and other basic cardiovascular life support skills in a wide variety of in-facility and prehospital settings.
