Share Article

OSHA inspections can save companies money, but for their own protection individual company must take responsibility and implement policies and procedures that ensure the safety of their employees and the public. Russell Associates, based in Le Sueur, MN is introducing a product that will impact how you conduct safety inspections and observations.

The good news – Fatal workplace injuries are declining. The bad news – Still, more than 4,000 Americans die from workplace injuries every year and there are more than 3 million cases of non-fatal workplace injuries and illnesses annually. According to ehstoday.com the annual cost of occupational injuries and illnesses totals more than $170 Billion!

These figures are alarming and can certainly be devastating to the companies and families affected.

The problem encountered by many is the time and the cost to conduct and follow up on inspections and the myriad of paperwork can be overwhelming. Thus, it becomes easier to look the other way or ignore warning signs of impending ‘doom’ when it comes to inspections.

OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) cites statistics from studies that demonstrate that OSHA inspection can save companies money. These inspections are certainly a significant factor in reducing workplace injuries and fatalities, but companies must initiate, train, enforce and monitor safe work practices within their own walls.

A product just introduced by Russell Associates goes a long way to helping companies do just that. inspectiTRAC™ is inspection and observation software delivered on a mobile device. It was recently presented at the Food Safety Summit in Washington, DC. In an effort to continually meet client needs, the latest release of inspectiTRAC™ provides significant enhancements for inspectors, administrators and managers.
