The 6 Key Elements of an Effective Safety Program
The Virtual Safety Manager (VSM) Program leverages SPI’s 25+ years of industry knowledge, proprietary technology, and proven protocols to establish, support, and maintain safety programs for companies across the U.S. Too often, companies will task an unqualified HR or administrative employee with the complex task of safety management. With no safety knowledge, these employees do the bare minimum and open their company to increased liability and potential disaster. The VSM Program is designed to create and support serious safety programs without the cost of a full-time safety professional. Though every safety program is customized to the client’s specific needs, systematic safety programs must routinely identify workplace hazards and exposures; create policies and procedures based on those exposures; train employees in occupational risks; learn from accidents and update policies and procedures as necessary and appropriately retrain employees; measure success; and have the support of executive management.
Initial Safety Program Configuration
VSM Clients will meet with an SPI Certified Safety Professional (CSP) to complete preliminary Hazard & Client Needs Assessments. Information gleaned from these meetings will be used to establish needed safety training, safety policies, audit checklists, inspection schedules, and other safety protocols.
