Loss Control 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 Pathogens

Confined Space

Developing a Basic Loss Control/Safety Plan [Toolkit]

Developing Your Safety Policy Mission Statement

Emergency and Fire Prevention Plans

Fleet Safety Program Development

Hazard Communication with Global Harmonization updated 2017

Lockout/Tagout Programs

Office Ergonomics (VDT)

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Powered Industrial Truck "Forklift"

Safety Committees Updated 2017

Self-Inspection Program Development

Suggested Training Matrix

Trenching & Excavation

Workplace Fire Safety and Extinguishers

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.
