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:
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
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.
