With over 35 years of experience, Amerisafe Safety Consultants have a proven track record for successful safety management services and programs for all types of clients across the United States. Rather than just handling compliance and inspections, our approach involves partnering with companies every step of the way. This includes the initial development of compliance systems and collaboration on a comprehensive Safety Management System. We also help to deepen the clients’ commitment throughout the managerial and supervisory levels with our Team Approach to SafetyTM, and enrich organizational culture with our People-Centered Safety ProcessTM and Leadership Education Workshops within the Amerisafe Center for Safety LeadershipTM.
Implementing an effective safety management system involves more than just meeting basic compliance standards. At Amerisafe, we partner with organizations to integrate five critical components:
When all five components are thoroughly incorporated, organizations can build a culture of safety that goes beyond mere compliance.
Pursuing OSHA compliance as the sole goal often leaves organizations frustrated when workers are still being injured despite full compliance. Shifting the goal from compliance to truly safe work environments requires a more structured approach to safety.
The traditional approach of having one “safety person” oversee an entire organization often fails. Instead, a team approach appoints groups across levels and divisions as safety champions. Key components of the team approach:
With all four components working together, organizations can begin the journey to build truly effective safety cultures. It requires commitment from many across the organization, but worker safety is worth the effort.
Modifying organizational culture is critical for organizations aiming to prevent all workplace injuries. Our proven process engages all employees through the 4 Keys to Continuous Improvement:
This people-centered approach produces the cultural shift necessary for reducing injuries by engaging employees at all levels in the organization.
Strengthen your culture and profitability with our in-person or online facilitated safety leadership workshops for managers and supervisors. Designed to develop leaders through experiential learning, our series equips operational leaders to drive behavioral and cultural change.
This is the recommended curriculum path:
Through active engagement, these workshops develop your organization’s leaders to enact change in behaviors and culture.
