The best strategy to reduce falls and limit exposure to violations is to be proactive.
Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) April 13, 2015
New OSHA regulations require employers to report every inpatient hospitalization resulting from an employee injury. Avitus Group is stepping up to offer all Colorado employers an easy to follow 5-Step Workplace Safety Strategy.The leading cause of injury hospitalizations in Colorado is falls, which account for nearly half – 49% - of all injury hospitalizations in Colorado according to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. Falls in the workplace resulting in inpatient hospitalization impact Colorado employers in a number of ways: lost workdays and decreased productivity, additional direct and indirect costs and added exposure to OSHA citations.
With the goal of instilling a safety culture in the workplace, Avitus Group has published and is offering to all Colorado employers an easy to follow 5-Step Workplace Safety Strategy. Employers who adopt a comprehensive workplace safety prevention program that includes proper injury reporting procedures and fall prevention training can significantly limit their exposure to potential OSHA citations in all aspects of workplace safety while reducing costs and preventing injuries.
“The best strategy to reduce falls and limit exposure to violations is to be proactive. There is expense involved in both proactive and reactive strategies. By being proactive and establishing a budget for safety education and training, and creating a culture of safety, you are reducing the likelihood of injuries. Being reactive and addressing environmental and educational needs after an accident can be far more costly,” says Avitus Group Safety Specialist Ramon Barraza.
