OSHA Safety Consulting for Construction
General Contractors, Specialty Contractors, General Labor Contractors and more all need assistance with safety on construction sites. Whether you have complete team of safety professionals or require the assistance of a fractional safety professional, we can assist you and your employees in their safety goals. Here are some of the ways that we can help you reach your safety goals and the advantages of using a safety consultant for construction.
Full-Time Safety Director on Staff
When a company employs the service of a full-time safety director they may quickly discover that the person in that role is so busy that he or she can use an extra set of hands to write programs, eyes to look at job sites and ears to understand the direction of the safety culture. A safety consultant can be an excellent fit to assist here because they can fill the gaps as needed and provide the required services in a responsive manner. The ability to be in two places at once means that one can conduct training while the other finalizes a JHA for an upcoming project. This model allows for the flexibility to scale up or down as the situation fits.
No Full-Time Director on Staff
Many companies find themselves in need of a fractional safety person in their infancy and as they continue to grow. If these companies were to hire a full-time safety director that person would likely find themselves without enough work and bored in their position, looking for something more challenging that better utilizes their skills. A fractional safety person or more commonly referred to as a safety consultant is a great fit here because companies have the benefit of the advice of a seasoned safety professional without the cost of a full-time employee. Again, this allows for the company to scale up and down and the business needs change, but still ensure that they maintain their focus on a safe workplace for their employees.
Complete Safety Team
Even large multi-billion dollar companies can use extra assistance with safety from time to time. These teams may find that accessing a particularly remote location may be difficult and enlisting the services of a construction safety professional may be advantageous and more cost-effective. They may realize that as their team expands and contracts that the services of a safety consultant help them fill needs that the timing of onboarding a new safety technician or safety manager leaves a hole in their team.
Advantages – Construction Safety Consulting
There are several advantages of hiring a safety consultant to help manage construction safety for your company. Briefly, this list includes:
- Cost – because these services are not typically delivered 40 hours a week, 52 weeks of the year, you pay a fraction of the cost of a full-time safety professional.
- Continuity – with many people on the team and multiple people involved in rendering services for your company, any turnover experienced can be much less painful as there are multiple team members that know your company’s procedures and have visited your sites for construction safety inspections.
- Expertise – Safety consulting companies typically employ people from many different backgrounds and with a variety of educational experiences. This translates to safety consultants who have seen a wide variety of environments and can bring that experience to bear on the challenges that construction companies are facing in today’s ever-changing, fast-paced environment. The depth and breadth of experience that a consultant may have and the industries that they have worked with may allow them to bring unique ideas to the table when problem-solving on the jobsite.
What does a safety consultant do?
What is OSHA compliance?
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is a branch of the federal Department of Labor charged with the task of ensuring that employers establish and maintain a safe workplace for their employees.
Augusta ( ə-GUSS-tə), officially Augusta–Richmond County, is a consolidated city-county on the central eastern border of the U.S. state of Georgia. The city lies across the Savannah River from South Carolina at the head of its navigable portion. Georgia’s third-largest city after Atlanta and Columbus, Augusta is located in the Fall Line section of the state.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Augusta–Richmond County had a 2020 population of 202,081, not counting the unconsolidated cities of Blythe and Hephzibah. It is the 116th largest city in the United States. The process of consolidation between the City of Augusta and Richmond County began with a 1995 referendum in the two jurisdictions. The merger was completed on July 1, 1996. Augusta is the principal city of the Augusta metropolitan area. In 2020 it had a population of 611,000, making it the second-largest metro area in the state. It is the 95th largest metropolitan area in the United States.
Augusta was established in 1736 and is named in honor of Princess Augusta of Saxe-Gotha (1719–1772), the bride of Frederick, Prince of Wales and the mother of the British monarch George III. During the American Civil War, Augusta housed the principal Confederate powder works. Augusta’s warm climate made it a major resort town of the Eastern United States in the early and mid-20th century. Internationally, Augusta is best known for hosting The Masters golf tournament each spring. The Masters brings over 200,000 visitors from around the world to the Augusta National Golf Club. Membership at Augusta National is widely considered to be the most exclusive in the sport of golf around the world.
Augusta lies approximately two hours east of downtown Atlanta by car via I-20. The city is home to Fort Gordon, a major U.S. Army base. In 2016, it was announced that the new National Cyber Security Headquarters would be based in Augusta.
