Safety Program Assessments:

Program assessments provide a baseline for how your company’s safety program is being managed. Each assessment is customized to meet individual client needs. Upon completion of the assessment, Lincoln Safety Solutions will provide a full summary and suggest practices to improve your organization’s safety program and culture.

Safety Inspections / Audits:

Safety audits are a necessity in any safety program. Not only do audits provide assistance in maintaining compliance with OSHA and other regulations, but they also help provide insight to the level at which the organization’s safety program is being executed.

"Since Bruce has been at VJS, he has done an outstanding job lowering and keeping OSHA, injury, and experience modification below industry average. This is truly confirmed with the support from management for Bruce and buy-in from the employees in the field. I have had the pleasure to perform safety training with Bruce and his command of the audience and knowledge of construction safety is impeccable."

Safety Training

There are numerous aspects that make up a world-class safety program. However, none of them may be as important as training. Lincoln Safety Solutions provides numerous training courses from general safety classes, such as the OSHA 10-Hour to more specific competent person training in areas such as fall protection, electrical, scaffolding, steel erection, concrete, masonry and many more.

OSHA / Insurance Claims Defense:

Have you had an OSHA inspection lately, or a large workers compensation or general liability claim? Lincoln Safety Solutions has experienced loss control and risk managers that will work to mitigate OSHA penalties and reduce costs on open claims.

Safe-Assist Program:

Many organizations have the necessity for a safety representative but are currently not large enough or in the position to hire one full-time. Lincoln Safety Solutions can provide a safety representative to perform administrative tasks, training, and auditing for your organization to meet its current needs. As your organization grows, our safety representative can grow with you.

"In order for safety to be effective, it needs to be in the forefront of everyone's thoughts."
