One of the most important elements of an effective safety program includes routine, documented safety observations, and safety audits.
This helps assure unsafe conditions and behaviors are identified and corrected. Documented safety audits also protect employers from OSHA citations arising from the unpreventable misconduct of their employees. Horton Safety Consultants has used this defense to prevent citations from being issued to clients who were cited by OSHA because of the unsafe behaviors of their employees.
Horton Safety Consultants uses a specialized platform to document safety audits. The platform employs predictive analytics that is capable of spotting trends in unsafe conditions and behaviors. The platform is also able to track open safety issues to completion. All successful safety programs must include periodic safety observations and audits.
