Safety is essential for sustaining your company. Fires, accidents and other unplanned incidents are dangerous and expensive – and can stop production in its tracks and is almost always costly. OSHA subjects companies to a fine of $13,653 per violation/per day for each violation and failure to abate beyond the abatement period. 1A repeated or willful violation is subject to a $136,532 fine per violation.

In addition to OSHA fines, direct costs associated with work-related injuries, illness and death include lost productivity, accident investigation costs, medical expenses, legal services, and increased insurance premiums and workers’ compensation payments.

2Indirect costs include damage to your business reputation, which can result in lost business, reduced shareholder value, high turnover, and low employee morale – which has been shown to correlate to lower productivity and profits.

Safety is one of the best investments you can make

investment-3-2-1280x853-D-32034-2011.jpg

Unfortunately, many companies wait until they have an incident and face the high costs of poor safety before they act. While proper safety can involve investing in fire and safety systems, training and administration, these costs can be more than offset by avoiding expenses related to poor safety. 

Quantifiable benefits of investing in safety include insurance savings, improved employee retention and morale, improved business reputation, and increased productivity.

A solid safety strategy can benefit your company by preventing accidents, increasing productivity, improving employee retention and morale, and improving improved customer sentiment.

Safety is complex

complicated-3-2-1280x853-D-6762-2016.jpg

Safety is a complicated mission – involving diverse technologies, systems and cross-departmental teams. All must be planned and orchestrated to achieve a singular goal: keep the facility’s people and facilities safe. While there is no such thing as 100% protection against unplanned events, a solid safety and emergency management plan can limit danger.

With more than 125 years of providing safety systems worldwide, Dräger has the technologies and the experience to plan proactively – which can help stop critical situations from turning into catastrophes.

Risk assessment

risk-cse-3-2-1280x853-D-2616-2018.jpg

You can’t create a solid safety plan for your company until you know where you stand today. What is the safety culture at your company? Do you have an adequate emergency plan in place? How safe are your processes? How well trained are your people?

Step number one is to know where and how your company is at risk.

We can help you:

  • Determine your risk profile
  • Build a business case that shows the cost of an effective safety plan – from fire and hazard protection, to CSE safety, to evacuation planning and training
  • Determine how much of an investment you need to make in safety
  • Project the financial impact a sound safety strategy can have on your company

A commitment to safety has to come from the top. Objective risk information can help shift top management’s view of safety from that of a burden to an opportunity.

Risk prevention planning

The American Society of Safety Professionals recommends using a formal risk assessment process to continually identify, analyze and evaluate risks, evaluate existing risk controls, and execute necessary improvements.

Once you know the risks your company faces, Dräger can help you determine your goals and create a plan that is sustainable over time to meet changing risk factors and regulations.

Dräger can help you:

  • Define your company’s safety goals
  • Determine and prioritize areas to address
  • Create a safe working environment by examining processes and potential danger from hazardous gases
  • Define a detailed strategy for safe working and rescue from confined spaces and containers
  • Build a strategy for safe handling of hazardous substances
  • Document defined procedures to facilitate safety audits

Emergency and crisis management

While crisis prevention is essential, it is equally important to prepare for a worst-case scenario in case there is an emergency so that all employees know their roles.

We can help you:

  • Establish a crisis management team and define its structure, procedures and documentation
  • Develop a plan of action, people involved and their roles, and a clear communication structure in the event of an emergency
  • Provide training and dress rehearsals – so all involved are confident in their roles and responsibilities

This reduces panic and enables people to make appropriate decisions in the event of incidents.

Safety management

safety-mgmt-3-2-1280x853-D-32024-2011.jpg

Your company’s safety management strategy needs to evolve and adapt as your business changes.

We can help you:

  • Build an integrated safety management system that will prepare you for the next safety management audit
  • Continue to maintain safety as a priority within your organization
  • Guide you through compliance certification and tie your safety efforts into bids and proposals
  • Document safety efforts to ensure that all departments continually comply with changing safety regulations

In summary, we will help you engage people within your organization to maintain a commitment to safety as an integral and ongoing part of your business success.

APR Portfolio Overview Webinar

In many industrial facilities, employees must work in areas where hazardous substances are present, or where the level of oxygen and amount of toxic substances may change at any time. These health hazards can affect the lungs or cause disease – and in extreme cases, can even lead to death. Where toxic substances can’t be completely controlled, respiratory protective equipment must be used.

Over 2 million workers enter permit confined spaces annually. Confined spaces are found in nearly every industrial operation and present a dangerous, often unique challenge. So how do we apply critical thinking when working in various applications?
