Safety Services Company is pleased to partner with IEC-Chesapeake. As most of you know, OSHA requires that contractors have a compliant safety program and that contractors must train their employees "in the recogonition and avoidance of usafe conditions and the regulations applicable to his work environment to control or eliminate any hazards or other exposure to llness or injury" CFR Title 29 Part 1926 Section 21 Subsection B. The most common and cost effective way that contractors have chose to handle the required training and documentation is by implementing jobsite "toolbox or tailgate" safety meetings. These safety meetings are designed to last approximatley 5-10 minutes and discuss common hazards found on the job.
Safety Services Company currently has over 9000 clients across the country and has written over 250 Tailgate/Toolbox Safety Meetings that are designed with the Electrical Contractor in mind. Safety Services Company and the IEC-Chesapeake have designed the program so that members may pick-and-choose the safety meetings that work best for their projects then Safety Services Company will mail the prewritten safety meetings to the member each month (English & Spanish meetings are available).
We are confident that the partnership between IEC-Chesapeake and Safety Services Company will benefit members and assist in the constant challenge of OSHA compliance!
