Health and Safety Program Development

1Source is a strong believer that workers need to be safe from risks regarding job tasks and occupational exposures. In order to cut back on health and safety risks, companies must gain an understanding of the hazards employees face. The sooner you implement a strategy with 1Source, the sooner you can reduce the chances of potential health effects harming your team.

1Source specializes in the review and development of written policies and programs to keep your company up to date with regulations and procedures. Before selecting your next approach to better health and safety practices, make sure you fully understand the importance of risk management.

What Is Risk Management?

1Source's health and safety programs work to provide risk management within the workplace. Risk management means analyzing and developing changes to minimize harm to employees and clients. Failure to engage in risk management may result in the following:

  • Accidents
  • Injuries
  • Lawsuits
  • Damaged product
  • Equipment failure

It's your responsibility to care for your employees and attend to their occupational risks. 1Source assesses legal liabilities for your workplace and practices. By identifying risk factors, our solutions aim to correct issues based on their level of priority.

Areas with higher levels of risk often have more severe repercussions if not fixed within a timely manner. For example, hazards may include these classifications:

  • Biological hazards: Living organisms play a role in the dangers of a job. Employees may encounter bacteria, viruses and other illnesses.
  • Chemical hazards: Toxic properties of chemicals can damage the skin and lungs and other organs.
  • Ergonomic hazards: Strenuous movements can result in muscle strain, back pain and musculoskeletal disorders.
  • Physical hazards: Workers might be exposed to radiation, trip hazards, fall hazards, noise, moving equipment and much more.

What Is the Hazard Communication Standard?

Your employees only know how to perform daily job tasks safely after effective training. The Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) gives workers the right to know information about the materials they work with.

For chemical safety, the Hazard Communication Standard is in place so teams properly understand the hazards of toxins. Labels, datasheets, information and training is the basis for all health and safety. In accordance with OSHA, The Joint Commission and other regulatory bodies, 1Source proudly offers the following workplace risk management services to keep businesses connected and processes intact:
