Safety Program Gap Analysis

IDENTIFY THE STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES OF YOUR SAFETY PROGRAM WITH OUR SAFETY GAP ANALYSIS

IS SAFETY AT THE FOREFRONT OF YOUR DAY-TO-DAY OPERATIONS?

We all understand the importance of safety. But when you’re a utility focusing on providing reliable service for thousands of customers or members across your service area, or a tree care company working through thousands of line miles’ worth of vegetation, your safety program can inadvertently take a backseat to these priorities.

Failure to keep your program current or ensure that field workers are following the required procedures can lead to costly lawsuits, employee injuries, property damage, and regulatory fines. That’s why we provide safety program gap analysis — a service that evaluates your overall safety program. Our industry experts review all facets of your operations including:

  • Onboarding and new hire training processes
  • Training program materials
  • Safety tailgates, manuals, meeting, and training documentation
  • Incident reporting and investigation procedures and documentation

OUR SAFETY GAP ANALYSIS LOOKS BEYOND THE FIELD LEVEL

In addition to the internal review of your safety program, we also interview your organization’s key personnel and management. Our qualified experts will perform field audit assessments on tree and equipment crews to better understand the nature of day-to-day activities and ensure worker safety is being practiced at all times and in all circumstances.

Our evaluation also identifies where you’re already performing well and what factors can be leveraged to strengthen your organization’s safety culture. Areas of improvement are examined in-depth, and recommendations are made on deficiencies to internal reporting, employee safety training, and other identified safety gaps.

In the end, your organization will be equipped with the knowledge and recommendations needed to implement and maintain an industry-leading, best-in-class safety program. We may also discover that your organization is already maintaining such a program, thereby providing you with an independent assessment reinforcing your current efforts.
