Here’s what can happen when we assume employees will use “common sense” to work safely. Check out this video. In 15 seconds, everything can change. 15 Second Safety Video
Watch this with your team and ask…Had an injury occurred:
1. How serious would it likely be?
2. Would the company be required to call OSHA? (answer: most likely, yes. Click here for OSHA reporting requirements)
3. What are the two things OSHA would be immediately looking for? (answer: Documentation on when and how this person was trained to use this tool, and info on his supervision. They will then want to review your IIPP and documented safety programs.)
4. How much trouble is the person who took the video going to be in? (answer: If the videographer was the employee’s supervisor, a case could be made that he is personally liable)
The employee was so focused on doing a good job for his employer that he almost destroyed his life in the process. The employer would have suffered both financial and reputational consequences as a result.
CompZone™ was created in 2003 by a group of work comp insurance and claim professionals who became passionate about helping business owners create a loss-free workplace.
Today, our team is proud to have helped ensure that thousands of workers continue to return home at the end of each day as healthy as they were when they arrived at the start.
Most business owners, when challenged with workplace injury claims and increasing work comp premium, do what they have always done…”put it out to bid”, only to find that at some point the bidding process didn’t provide a solution.
The solution lies in understanding that bidding is an external answer for an internal problem. CompZone™ delivers a strategy to internally change how things are done, shift company culture, eliminate injuries, and dramatically reduce the costs of injuries that do occur. A solution that is proven and replicable over time.
