Safety Management Systems

Formalize the safety process beyond regulatory compliance to manage significant risks in the working environment.

We work closely with your team to integrate the 5 Components of an Effective Safety Management System:

Management Commitment – Whether motivated by a need to reduce workers compensation rates, a recent injury or a moral obligation, management must place an importance on safety. Strong commitment by the executive team sets the direction and vision for safety cascading through the organization.

Program Development – Performing regular job hazard analyses and developing controls to reduce hazards can greatly mitigate risk. All controls are developed into a safety and health program to provide clear procedures for employees.

Training – Simply put, we can’t expect people to do things we’re not willing to tell them about. At OSM, we view training in three distinct categories: Initial, Specific and Ongoing. 

Safety Surveys – Good management systems require a feedback loop which reports whether the objectives of the system are being achieved. Inspect what is expected to verify the efforts made are being carried through.

Continuous Improvement – Vital to any functioning safety program is the constant and never-ending improvement that must be made. For sustainability of the process and increased employee engagement, leadership must implement a systems-focused approach for continuous improvement.
