Benchmarking Your Company's Safety Performance, Or That of a Potential Contractor against Companies in the Same Industry

April 17, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm EDT

This OSHA compliance webinar will explain how to compute safety performance measures for your own company or your existing and potential contractors. Attendees will learn best practices to avoid OSHA fines and penalties.


Why Should You Attend:

Accidents involving your own employees can result in higher-than-industry-average Workers' Compensation insurance costs and make it difficult for your company to offer competitive pricing. Accidents involving contractor employees injured on your site involve large potential losses in addition to the legal expenses of just defending your company. The first step in any improvement plan is to benchmark the safety of your company or your contractors against the appropriate safety performance measures.

This webinar will teach attendees how to compute those measures for your own company or your existing and potential contractors and compare them against the appropriate industry performance measures. Participants will also learn how to request records of a contractor and use those records to evaluate the prospective contractors' safety performance as part of the bidding process.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • The more obvious costs to accidents in your workplace including increased workers' compensation costs.
  • The not so obvious but nonetheless real costs to quality and productivity of accidents involving your own workers.
  • The increased likelihood of OSHA inspections, fines, and lost work time for companies with worse-than-industry average measures of safety performance.
  • How to compute measures of safety performance for your own company.
  • How to find the appropriate measures of safety performance in the Bureau of Labor Statistics against which to compare your company's safety performance.
  • What information to request from potential contractors in order to calculate the safety performance of contractors.
  • How to use the information requested from potential contractors to assess the likelihood of an accident involving a contractor employee while on your site.
  • How to find the appropriate measures of safety performance in the Bureau of Labor Statistics against which to compare the safety performance of prospective contractors.
