The purpose of any safety assessment or safety plan is to prevent harm from occurring while managing cost expectations. Fastenal is here to answer your questions regarding regulations and to address occupational hazards that can lead to lost work days.
We can suggest and offer solutions that will help drive down incident rates and reduce insurance costs.
In order for the assessment to be productive, it is essential that the Fastenal Safety Specialist meet with a program champion. This role has proven to work with Safety Directors, Quality Assurance Managers, Plant Managers and Lean Champions. For many global or national partners we find that corporate backing and support is essential to help drive the overall program goals.
An initial meeting or conference call is utilized to get an overall breakdown of your objectives. This provides an opportunity for candid dialogue and fact finding for both parties. After determining a course of action, a site visit, walk through inspection and assessment are scheduled with a Fastenal Safety Specialist.
During the assessment process it is our objective to identify any immediate and obvious occupational safety hazards. We will document the risk factors which can be controlled in order to provide a safe working environment.
The Fastenal Safety Specialist will provide recommendations as well as offer solutions that are consistent with best in class industry practices. Comprehensive PPE Assessments and training capabilities are included in the listing of safety services on the right half of this page.
In addition to identifying immediate concerns the safety specialist will also spend time working with employees to uncover possible improvements for a specific application that we can apply from another customer interaction or from the customer’s team members. This information may be provided in an anonymous format so that workers can feel comfortable sharing ideas or concerns.
Systematic improvements or control recommendations are accompanied by products that would increase protection for workers, introduce new technology into the plant, or decrease the total cost of worker protection.
We realize that changes to the products people wear are never easy and have a formal testing process established to insure that all necessary parties are engaged prior to a decision being made.
