Ensuring the safety of everyone in an operational facility is challenging for any business, especially industrial facilities. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the United States alone has on average 99 workplace deaths per week. Site safety incidents of this magnitude have serious regulatory, insurance, union, cost, and worker implications. A serious workplace accident can be catastrophic for the workers’ family and result in expensive work stoppages, compensation, investigations and additional compliance requirements. OSHA also recognizes that employers can abate many hazards through straightforward, cost-effective solutions.
