The Challenge. While many safety and risk professionals are struggling to prevent injuries…
There’s a small group who are decreasing injuries on a consistent basis…
And it’s not because they are better safety/risk professionals than you…
Or that they more of an expert than you – far from it.
It’s all because they are using a time-tested process proven to:
✅ Determine the root cause of injuries
✅ Identify customized injury prevention programs
✅ Seamlessly implement those programs
In today’s “post pandemic shutdown” era, the universal cry from almost all industries is that they can’t hire enough workers. Cries of worker shortage abound.
Solid, experienced, reliable workers that can be counted on for exceptional productivity and safety in the workplace are the backbone of any business – assets to your company that are worth their weight in gold. However, as any employer knows, they aren't easy to find and are sometimes even harder to hang on to. A good physical ability test program can help find these workers.
A bad hire for a physically demanding job results in decreased productivity, higher turnover and greater risk of workplace injury. Physical Abilities Testing makes the hiring process much simpler for those charged with the task of hiring new employees, especially in physically demanding industries like transportation, logistics and distribution, utilities, manufacturing and construction.
Although the new recordkeeping requirements for workplace injury and illness set forth by the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) have been delayed until further notice, keeping a close eye on workplace injuries means employers will be ready when the changes take effect.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued several new regulations in the last months of 2016, set to go into effect in January 2017. Since they were announced, the regulations have been subject to more than a little misinterpretation and confusion. Many employers are left wondering, for example, if they can still drug test employees who are injured on the job (they can). We share the following information, of course, with the understanding that the incoming Trump administration’s staunch anti-regulation stance may change things after the inauguration.
