Included in the corporate safety manual will be a list of training expectations for the employer:
• New Hire Employees (Site-specific and general training)
• Reclassification of job duties (assessment of train acquired vs training needed)
• Change of job site hazards (latest job site change may require excavation, confined space, respiratory, etc.) that were not observed earlier in construction or process
• New job site processes or operations (equipment, substances, etc.)
• Regulatory changes within MSHA or OSHA mandating extra training for a given process or job classifications
Evaluation of safety processes and procedures on an annual basis allows your organization to determine the effectiveness of your safety manual. Look for ways to improve existing procedures to further reduce the possibilities of workplace accidents and injuries. Implement new processes and modify existing ones to match your current workplace environment.
Reporting Investigating all incidents and accidents regardless of the severity is required. Despite the fact that we cannot always control the outcome, the steps leading up to and including the incident is usually something that is preventable.
ICM incorporates, process and procedure for the purpose of investigation:
• Identifying the problem, and steps need to minimize the odds of a similar accident occurring in the future
• Determining the initial cause of the accident
• Taking corrective action
• Update any associated training for employees
• Monitoring the results of newly implemented policies
