Safety Assessments

Improved safety is good for business. Better safety translates into fewer incidents causing damages and lost time, plus better employee morale and lower insurance premiums.

Recognizing the importance of providing a safe work environment for all of our citizens, the Occupational Safety and Health Act was implemented, detailing a number of standards and guidelines that will help an employer comply with the law and create safer workplaces.

Several OSHA regulations apply to the Electric Power Generation, Transmission, and Distribution Industry, namely OSHA General Industry 29 CFR 1910, and particularly OSHA 1910.269.

To help employers discover if their operation and their work procedures measure up to OSHA requirements and meet any due diligence requirements, EITI offers several levels of Safety Assessments. As an unbiased, third-party, EITI can help you work towards compliance without the risks.

    A thorough, onsite safety audit by an independent safety expert provides the objectivity you need to discern areas for improvement, and provide you with a plan for corrective action based on industry best practices. The degree of complexity of this audit is directly relational to the size of your operation and your specific safety needs.

  • OBJECTIVE: To identify hazards that may be created during work activities, and to verify workers adherence to safe work practices.

REGULATORY COMPLIANCE SAFETY AUDITS
