Best Practices

The overall effectiveness of a loss control program often requires (as does OSHA and Maine BLS) that employers have written hazard control programs and procedures in place. We have (and continue to develop) policies and programs to help our members accomplish this. We have prepared "Best Practices" documents for the following topics:

Bloodborne Pathogen Exposure Control Plan (updated 2020)

Confined Space (updated 2020)

Emergency Action Response (updated 2021)

Facility Inspection Program Development  (updated 2020)

Fleet Safety (updated 2022)

Fleet Safety – School Bus (updated 2022)

Fleet Safety – Dump Trucks (updated 2022)

Hazard Communication with Global Harmonization  (updated 2019)

Job Safety Analysis (updated 2020)

These programs are intended to help our members (with our assistance) develop the needed programs. Each includes a step-by-step process as well as sample forms and programs. We believe that to be effective, plans need to be written by our members. This "ownership" has proven to increase the probability that your employees (at all levels) will follow the procedures you have defined.
