Customized Corporate Safety Manuals - [Best
We will create your company a detailed, user-friendly safety manual with "easy to
implement" instructions. This manual will include all the required and recommended
safety programs necessary to meet compliance standards of OSHA, DOT, EPA and any other
federal, state or local safety agencies. Your Safety Manual will be custom designed to
meet the needs of your industry and your workforce. At WS Management Consultants, we feel
your company will benefit from a customized program, rather than some mass-produced safety
booklet that can be purchased at any national retail safety company.
Furthermore, we can assemble your complete manual (which
will include several individual programs) for a fraction of the fee you would pay for
these same programs if you purchased them separately. Your manual will include sections
such as: Management's commitment to safety, employee indoctrination procedures,
inspections and investigations, OSHA inspection procedures, in-house safety personnel
responsibilities, training procedures, and a variety of industry-specific topics such as:
Hazard Communication Standard, Personal Protective Equipment, Lockout/Tagout Procedures,
Back Maintenance and Proper Lifting Procedures, Fire Safety and Protection, and many, many
other specific procedures.
Remember, we will CUSTOM DESIGN your Corporate Safety Manual based on your company and industry needs.
Hazard Communication Manual
In addition to a corporate safety manual, many companies assemble a separate HazCom Manual
/ MSDS Inventory Book for easy access to training records and Material Safety Data Sheets.
We feel that this highly-enforced OSHA Standard warrants a complete separate manual. This
manual will provide you with a user-friendly Hazcom program which includes a sample
training outline and instructions for how to order, organize and index the MSDS's
properly. It will also provide information in how to handle new chemicals as they arrive
at the jobsite and discuss training requirements.
For the past 8 years, 4 of the top 10 OSHA citations have come from the Hazard
Communication standard. These citations include: (1) no written policy, (2) inadequate
training, (3) improper chemical container labeling, and (4) incomplete MSDS inventory - or
Don't be caught unprotected. This is a very simple, yet
often overlooked, area that creates thousands upon thousands of OSHA violations each and
every year. Our proven method is as cost effective as it is necessary to implement - one of our client favorites.
Field Supervisor Manual
If you have field supervisors such as on a construction project, this is a must. Our
supervisor manual, custom-made to your company and industry needs, will guide your
supervisor, step-by-step, through the employee orientation process. This will include
safety rules, hazard communication training, and general construction safety topics such
as personal protective equipment, accident reporting, etc.
Your supervisor manual will be an abbreviated version of
your corporate safety manual. They will be able to carry this book with them at all times
for a reference guide and note-taking. It will also have a section for active material
safety data sheets on the jobsite.

Field Supervisor Inspection Kit
Did you know that every construction jobsite is required to perform certain inspections on
items such as electrical cords, ladders, scaffolding, etc. That's right! If your jobsite
is not fully equipped with GFCI's, then all electrical cords and power tools MUST have
quarterly inspections and be color-coded with the proper tape. In addition, all ladders
must be inspected quarterly as well as scaffolding projects, and other jobsite equipment.
The kit also includes jobsite inspection forms.
Our inspection kits contain all the necessary electrical
testing equipment, colored tape and paperwork to make these inspection records a snap.

Safety Incentive Programs
We have proven time and again with our clients that safety incentives work in a big way.

"reverse-lottery" style programs or "bingo" type programs that
generate explosive interest in the employees.

design your company a safety incentive program that will ignite the interest of all
employees involved. From "team effort" programs to individual plans, these

BACK SAFETY BASICS
Whats the big deal?
No matter what your occupation is, the chances are that
at some point during your work shift, you will be picking something up, and if safety
experts are correct, most of us will lift incorrectly. The cartoon below is more
than just a silly picture; it is probably an accurate representation of how most of us
lift: awkwardly and with no forethought. But just what is the big deal about lifting
anyway? Havent most of us lifted varying amounts of weight for years without any
trouble at all? Really, what is so complicated about picking something up?
A few statistics
- Experts suggest that 4 out of 5 American workers will
experience back pain at some point in their lives.
- Of those who suffer back pain, only 4% have a back injury.
- Of those who suffer back injuries, they are not considered
fully recovered until they have no pain in the same area for 2 years.
Five golden rules
- Always, always, always, use your legs
to lift and not your back.
The legs have the strongest muscle groups in the body; conversely, the back muscles are
- Keep the load close to your body.
An object held close to your body is far less strain on the back than an object held at
- Avoid lifting objects over your
When you lift over your shoulders the force of the lift causes your back to
"arch" pinching the lower vertebrae, disks, and muscles.
- When moving a load from left to right,
turn your body, do not twist your back.
Remember, your back is like a shock absorber. When you lift, it compresses, and when you
lift and twist, the added torque could lead to a back injury.
- Push, dont pull.
For those items on carts or dollies, push them instead of pulling. When you pull, you
typically place most of the strain on the elbows, knees, and lower back, but when you
push, the force of the effort is spread out over the shoulders, chest, and legs.
Tips to last a lifetime
- Size up the load before you lift it.
- Use mechanical lifting devices whenever possible.
- Back belts do not make you stronger.
- Stretching and warm-up exercises help keep your back
flexible and strong
- The damage to your back from improper lifting is
cumulative. That is, the older we get and the longer we lift improperly, the greater
the risk of injury.
- Think before you lift. It is much better to ask, "How
should I lift this load?" than to get hurt and then ask,
"How should I have lifted that load?"
