“Studies show that every dollar invested in a safety program returns four to six dollars in reduced insurance premiums, medical expenses and labor downtime And that’s before the potential cost of OSHA fines even enters the equation.”
LAFAYETTE, INDIANA (PRWEB) August 25, 2015
Farm and other agribusiness operations looking for convenient, cost-effective ways to improve workplace safety and meet compliance requirements under the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) have a dynamic new option available online.
Good Day’s Work is a web-based business—built by ag professionals for ag professionals—that combines an expanding library of employee safety-training videos (available in English and Spanish) with a records-keeping and reporting tool any agribusiness can use to maintain a sound workplace-safety program, with or without a safety specialist on staff.
“Studies show that every dollar invested in a safety program returns four to six dollars in reduced insurance premiums, medical expenses and labor downtime,” says Don Tyler, the president and co-founder of Good Day’s Work. “And that’s before the potential cost of OSHA fines even enters the equation.”
Yet, according to Tyler, Good Day’s Work isn’t only for agribusinesses struggling to cost-justify a safety investment. The robust program also adds value for agribusinesses with safety programs and personnel already in place. The compliance features alone, he says, lighten the paperwork burden to the degree that safety personnel can finally focus on developing that elusive safety culture they’ve always wanted.
Once a business sets up an account inside the Good Day’s Work platform, that business’ account administrator can instantly register employees for classes, track all training activity, access management-level compliance information, submit OSHA accident reports, gather necessary documentation in the event of an OSHA inspection, and conduct a wide range of other safety-program management activities—all from the convenience of any Web-enabled device, including mobile applications.
All that said, Tyler emphasizes this one-of-a-kind advantage—safety training focused on equipment and worksites unique to agriculture.
“Good Day’s Work was conceived when my partner and I came up empty looking for this kind of resource for his production crop and livestock operation,” says Tyler. “In our product development, we’ve purposely gone beyond simply providing what’s necessary to jump through compliance hoops and, instead, also created good commonsense training that empowers employees to really be safer and more productive on the farm.”
Building on an industry-wide, if not formally spoken, ambition among agribusiness professionals to advance the cause of safety, Tyler has a higher-level goal as well.
“We believe that, through our efforts, we can be instrumental in moving agriculture from the number-one spot on OSHA’s ‘Most Dangerous Industries’ list, to completely out of the top ten. We’re really looking forward to working with our customers and peers toward that end.”
