It’s a cold, hard fact of doing business: at some point, you’re going to have to prove to regulators that you’re providing your employees a safe and healthy workplace. Demonstrating your company’s compliance with Health and Safety regulations can take many forms, including regularly submitting accident and injury reports to government or providing necessary data to inspectors, should they show up at your door.
Maintaining compliance can be an onerous task, what with capital expenditures on equipment, staff training costs and keeping reports and data organized and easily accessible. A new Intelex Insight Report looks to help take the headache out of the compliance process by examining:
- The key areas that regulators such as the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Organization (OSHA) demand compliance on.
- The benefits of being compliant. While risk can never be completely eliminated from the work process, maintaining compliance can result in numerous monetary and non-monetary gains.
- The consequences of non-compliance. Fines, preventable expenditures, lawsuits and even jail time are all potential outcomes for companies and their leadership that ignore their regulatory responsibilities.
- How the use of modern software-based systems may help to simplify and accelerate the compliance process. We look in-depth at the movement away from paper and spreadsheets to robust health and safety software systems that take the pain out the compliance process.
Whether you’re a seasoned veteran of the health and safety sector or a new practitioner in the field, this easy-to-read primer will provide you with everything you need to know about the compliance process and how to maintain it the simple and pain-free way.
