Fines are a pain.
There is no way around it.
As a small business owner, you have worked your tail off, put blood, sweat, and tears into your business and likely made more sacrifices than anyone will ever realize.
But if you are not careful, all of that hard work can be wiped out in an instant.
Whether your company suffers from an injury or death on the job site or is simply “gifted” with a hefty fine for potentially dangerous procedures or environments, it only takes seconds to destroy something that took you years to build.
So how can you avoid these issues?
Let us show you.
1. Understand the OSHA Regulations
Like they say, “Knowledge is power.”
If you want to make sure that you and your company are as safe as possible (in every sense of the word) then you need to take some serious time to understand the OSHA regulations and how they apply to your business.
Whether you sit down and talk with someone from OSHA or simply do extensive reading on what the rules and regulations are for your industry, you need to understand OSHAs requirements.
2. Make the Necessary Changes
The next step is fairly simple.
Once you understand what you need to do to avoid problems with OSHA or with the safety of your employees, just go out and do it!
3. Get a Third Party Consultant
Once you have made the changes to your company’s policies, environment, training etc. it’s time to bring in a second set of eyes (who will not fine you) to make sure that you did everything that is necessary to avoid issues.
Once you have accomplished these three steps… Voila!
Your odds of fines or citations are significantly reduced and you can sleep like a baby
