A Supportive Safety Partner
CCI’s commitment to building a strong safety culture begins with our core values. Our foundational core value is our dedication to being your safety support system. Implementing a personalized safety program requires thoughtful attention-to-detail, and an understanding of the nuances of your company’s operations.
CCI will work with you to identify which areas require compliance assistance by providing:
1) Value-added safety policies & programs
2) Supportive & solutions-based interactions
3) Ongoing process-improvement
Together, these three elements ensure that:
1) Your company’s policies and programs will be appropriate and comprehensive
2) Our communication will assist you in resolving workplace issues
3) We will continually work with you to always be improving your safety culture
A Personalized Health & Safety Program
The foundation of any company’s safety culture is an individually tailored health & safety policy or program (HASP) which addresses your organization’s specific needs. This personalized program enables your organization to implement the necessary processes for continuous improvement, address any potential and actual workplace hazards, and establish accountability at all levels of your organization.
Implement Regular Safety Inspections
The second key ingredient of your company’s safety culture is regular worksite safety inspections. Your HASP is a living document, and is only effective if it is consistently put into practice. Workers and subcontractors may not be aware, or properly incentivized as to your commitment to workplace safety. In day-to-day complex operations, it’s easy to let your safety vision become diluted or outdated.
For these reasons, CCI recommends regular safety inspections. The ability to periodically observe your worksite is critical for gaining awareness about novel or overlooked safety challenges and communicating about them in a healthy way . . . before they become a costly mistake.
Engaged & Educated Employees
Involving your employees in your safety program is a great way to elicit their buy-in as you move forward in implementing your program. You can enable employee participation by establishing a Workplace Health & Safety Committee, which not only is a proven way to strengthen your safety culture but would also earn you a percentage decrease – varying by state – on your workman’s comp premiums for each year that you certify your committee with the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation. Adhering to certification regulations can be tedious and time-consuming, but CCI can help you develop and maintain a certified safety committee which encourages employee engagement in identifying workplace hazards and articulating solutions on a team.
In addition, regular safety training is not only essential, but is also mandated by many OSHA standards. CCI can assist you in identifying which trainings are required, and implement them in a way that engages employees and helps them achieve the knowledge they need to be accountable for their own safety and the safety of their co-workers. In addition, CCI recommends an initial orientation where all levels of management are present so that workers clearly understand that leadership stands behind them on safety education.
