Safety training is essential for employees for several reasons:
Preventing Accidents and Injuries: The primary goal of safety training is to help prevent accidents and injuries in the workplace. By providing employees with the knowledge and skills necessary to identify and avoid potential hazards, they can work more safely and effectively.
Compliance with Regulations: Depending on the industry, there may be various safety regulations and guidelines that companies must follow. Safety training helps ensure that employees are aware of these regulations and understand how to comply with them.
Reducing Costs: Workplace accidents and injuries can be expensive for companies, resulting in lost productivity, increased insurance premiums, and potential legal liabilities. Safety training can help reduce the risk of accidents and injuries, thereby lowering costs for the company.
Improving Employee Morale: Employees who feel safe and secure in their work environment are likely to be more productive and have higher morale. Safety training can help instill a culture of safety in the workplace, which can improve employee satisfaction and engagement.
Enhancing Reputation: Companies that prioritize safety are often viewed more positively by customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders. Safety training can help demonstrate a company's commitment to safety and enhance its reputation in the marketplace.
Overall, safety training is an investment in both the well-being of employees and the success of the company. By prioritizing safety and providing employees with the knowledge and skills they need to work safely, companies can create a more productive, engaged, and successful workforce.
Written Safety Plans
Written safety & health plans are an important part of a company’s safety & health program. Not only does OSHA require companies to have written programs, but oftentimes contractors require safety & health programs to be submitted as part of the pre-qualification process.
It is essential to have your company’s safety plans in writing, as documentation to reference what the company’s practices, rules, and guidelines are for a variety of areas. In the event of an incident, audit, or inspection, it’s vital to have the documentation as a reference. Safety and health training is built from the information that is contained in the written programs, and having written safety and health programs helps to build a company’s safety culture by prioritizing safety.
Through the audit process, Razer Safety and Health will discuss your company’s operation and hazards that your employees may encounter in addition to specific information such as persons responsible for implementing your safety & health program, hazards specific to your operation, personal protective equipment that is utilized, evacuation routes and procedures, and more. Once your company’s information has been obtained, we will be equipped with the information needed to develop customized safety programs for your company.
"It is a great pleasure for me to share with any prospective client of Razer Safety and Health Consulting the excellent professional services that you provided in a recent case where our respective organizations provided legal and consulting services for a client in a significant OSHA matter.
As a former Area Director for OSHA, you provided practical advice to our client, and you provided these services in a professional and cost-effective manner.
Please feel free to have any of your prospective clients contact me for any additional information concerning your consulting experience. You are an excellent resource in the OSHA area, and it was a personal pleasure to work with you on this project. Continued success."

"We consulted with and hired Chet Razer as an expert witness to inspect a commercial roof fall/injury in Southwest Missouri. Chet came to the injury site, conducted an investigation and wrote a great report. Chet is a walking OHSA manual. You can tell from the terminology and his work related mannerisms that he lives and breathes safety. Chet’s deposition went flawlessly and helped settle our case before trial. I highly recommend Chet Razer as a safety consultant in regard to workplace injuries."

"Razer's vast experience with OSHA / MSHA and his ability to relate to our crews in the field has added tremendous value to our safety and health program. It's nice to know when Chet inspects a job site and talks with employees, a positive impact will follow."
