A Balanced Approach to Workplace Safety and Health

| OSHA, USF Safety Florida

Worker safety has come a long way with the involvement of OSHA, the various On-Site Consultation Programs and the outreach training institutes. Today’s workplaces are much safer and healthier as a result. However, despite our progress, there continues to be a wide range of issues still left to be remedied as evidenced in the top 10 most frequently cited OSHA standard violations report.

Here at USF SafetyFlorida, we are committed to reducing work related illnesses and injuries through on-site workplace consultations. Secondarily, we help small businesses profit from safer workplaces, as well as aid in increased worker productivity.

We are able to achieve this feat of addressing workplace safety and health through using a well-balanced approach. While the enforcement side of the house is a statutory requirement that must be enforced; make no mistake about it, there is a firewall between consultation and the enforcement side of the agency. In essence, we complement each other.

The USF SafetyFlorida On-Site Consultation program offers no-cost, confidential services to Florida’s small business community. We work with employers to find and fix hazards, achieve compliance and improve their overall safety and health programs. Our safety and health consultants are your key to achieving these benefits.  They follow high and consistent standards for helping employers protect their workers.

Our sister company, USF OSHA Training Institute Education Center of Wesley Chapel serves Southeast Florida and beyond to support the overall mission of reducing workplace accidents and injuries by training workers, employers and safety professionals on hazard recognition and avoidance.

The USF OSHA Training Institute Education Center is part of a national network of non-profit organizations authorized by OSHA to deliver occupational safety and health training to public and private sector workers, supervisors, and employers on behalf of OSHA.

We strongly encourage you to take the next step toward safety in your business. Contact us today and request a free and confidential consultation or to receive more information regarding training courses in occupational safety and health subjects.
