A written company Safety & Health Manual or Safety & Health Program is a critical component of workplace injury prevention and regulatory compliance programs. A safety manual is a set of safety programs that have been selected based upon the hazards present at an employer's worksite. This safety manual essentially lays out your plan for providing a safe workplace and complying with applicable OSHA, State & Insurance laws and regulations. We work with both the insurance industry and OSHA so we know what should be covered in your manual.† There are topics like RTW, Ergonomics, etc., that most manuals do not cover which are very relevant for a Safety & Health, Injury & Illness Prevention Manual. ††††
What is a Safety Manual?
∑ It is your company's safety mission statement.
∑ It outlines your entire safety program as required by federal regulations.
∑ It covers your company's policies and procedures.
∑ It includes a list of your equipment and protective gear.
∑ It includes a comprehensive training, hazard assessment, and hazard communication plan.
∑ It includes a list of certifications and the names of the members of your safety team.
Most small and medium-sized businesses simply do not have the financial and human resources to sit down and develop a company Safety & Health Manual from scratch. The internet is covered with stolen and/or out-dated materials, and outright frauds.

Why Have a Safety Manual?
The general / controlling contractor of a job-site is ultimately responsible for the safety of not only their employees, but also the employees of any sub-contractors. As a result of this responsibility, general contractors are requiring potential sub-contractors to submit a copy of their safety manual with their bid package. Not only does this make your bid look more professional but, it sends the message that your company takes safety very seriously. This will show the general contractor that your company is less likely to lose time and money due to accidents on the job site. A solid safety manual is a must for all GENERAL CONTRACTORS & SUBCONTRACTORS if you want to remain competitive in today's marketplace and comply with insurance and OSHA standards.
