Our vision is to provide employers with education and resources focused on preventing and managing workplace illness and injury ultimately reducing the risk and cost associated with Workers' Compensation.
Effective safety programs are the result of management leadership and the application of proven management principles throughout the organization. Risk must be identified and evaluated, appropriate controls must be chosen and implemented, and the entire process must be monitored and continuously improved. ESM's safety professionals are experts in safety program management and will bring your program a new vision that will lead to safety excellence while reducing risk and cost.
Strong safety programs are built rather than evolve. It starts with executive management commitment and their strong leadership to gain involvement of the personnel who will be directing and implementing the program. Program design starts with establishing a Safety Committee that develops a strategic plan, sets policies, procedures and guides the implementation process ensuring sustainability and scalability. Effective safety management is woven into production creating an efficient and safe process.

This ensures compliance with the Injury & Illness Prevention Plan requirements (element #2 – Ensuring compliance) and creates a system of governance in which the organization operates.
Establish annual goals and quarterly benchmarks to monitor your progress. Safety Initiatives can then align with these goals to ensure success, including:
