Workplace safety is critical to protecting your employees. With the right planning and training, you can avoid injuries to your employees, prevent dangerous workplace activities, and equip your team with the knowledge and tools to help keep your workplace accident-free. Archbright can help.
Making changes to improve your safety program not only reduces the risk, it also improves turnover and absenteeism, increases productivity and quality, and lowers Workers’ Compensation costs. Our team of Safety & Loss Control Consultants provides support the following ways:
Archbright’s Health & Safety Baseline Analysis is our 3-step process that includes a comprehensive evaluation of your worker’s compensation program, a compliance inspection of your facility, and a review of your safety manual, policies, procedures, and safety committee activities.
Through this process, we identify the factors that influence the performance of your Workers’ Compensation experience ratings, the overall safety levels at your worksite, the potential for L&I citations, and the changes needed to keep your policies and procedures up to date.
Then, we deliver a detailed report with our recommendations, so you have a clear understanding of what you need to do to make your program function at its best.
At Archbright, we understand the most effective safety programs are those built and managed from inside an organization. We also understand that sometimes this simply isn’t possible. For member companies who need onsite support for their safety program, we offer Onsite Safety Consulting.
Your Safety and Loss Control Consultant will monitor workplace activities to ensure that workers comply with company policies and government safety regulations. Depending on your company’s needs, we can help develop safety policies, perform workplace inspections, investigate incidents, implement safety training, and ensure compliance with governing agencies.
We will work with your organization to build the infrastructure for a comprehensive, self-sustained health and safety program.
Effective Health and Safety Inspections are one of the most important incident/accident prevention tools in a company’s health and safety program. As part of a proactive injury-prevention plan, inspections reveal the current state of your workplace, help identify hazards, and prevent unsafe working conditions from developing.
Archbright’s Safety & Loss Control Consultant will walk through your facility to evaluate overall safety conditions and identify potential L&I citations, workplace hazards, and opportunities for improving your health and safety program. We then create an inspection report of our findings that includes applicable Washington administrative codes and our recommendations for improvement.
Archbright’s Safety Program Review is a proactive approach to reducing injuries that takes a closer look at your company’s health and safety objectives, identifies strengths and weaknesses of the program, determines if your policies and procedures are in compliance, and defines areas in need of improvement.
During the review, Archbright’s consultant will review your organization’s safety manual, and documented policies and procedures to ensure you are up to date with the latest regulations. Once completed, we’ll provide our written notes and review our recommendations with your team during a phone consultation.
The complex world of workers’ compensation insurance is challenging to navigate, especially in Washington State. It can be difficult to understand what factors influence your company’s performance and just how you can reduce your premiums.
Through our Financial Workers’ Compensation Review, Archbright can shine a light on where your dollars are currently being spent and how your experience ratings are impacting your costs. Our consultants will provide you with a financial and forensic analysis of your workers’ comp claims losses to determine where improvements are needed most.
After this review, you will better understand the state of your program and how to decrease future costs for your organization.
Thousands of workplace injuries and deaths every year can be attributed to a lack of proper safety training. Effective training includes communicating the company’s safety commitment, ensuring employees have proper skills to identify and eliminate potential hazards, and establishing on-going training to maintain long-term comprehension.
Archbright offers a wide variety of Safety Training, from general safety to train-the-trainer classes to custom safety curriculum development. With our team of Safety and Loss Control experts, we can provide safety training on nearly any safety-related topic.
Some of our onsite trainings include:
An effective safety committee unites workers and management in their commitment to workplace safety. It is based on the principle that management and the workforce share in the responsibility for creating and maintaining a safe and healthy workplace.
Archbright’s Safety and Loss Control Consultants help build effective Safety Committees. Whether your company needs to create (or recreate) a safety committee, or just needs some support to improve the performance of the current safety team, Archbright can help. Our experts can launch and lead your safety team or participate in recurring meetings.
Every employer in Washington State is required to have a written Accident Prevention Program or APP. This is your company’s plan to prevent accidents, illnesses, and injuries on the job and must be tailored to the needs of your workplace and operations.
At Archbright, we help companies create an effective written Safety Program that covers the unique needs of your business, includes required policies and procedures, and ensures your organization is in compliance with all applicable regulations.
A safety citation issued by Washington State Department of Labor & Industries (L&I) notifies an employer of Division of Occupational Safety & Health (DOSH) inspection results including any violations found, penalties, and correction dates.
Archbright’s Citation Review evaluates the severity of the citation and then recommends appropriate next steps during a phone consultation. Our team is also available for ongoing support should you request additional correction time from L&I or decide to appeal the citation.
Archbright’s Risk Management Center (RMC) is an online platform that eases the administrative challenges of loss prevention, safety management, and controlling workers’ compensation costs.
The RMC comes with a variety of applications to help you execute your safety program, including an Incident Tracker, a home for all of your Safety Data Sheets, a Training Tracker, and a Behavior-based Safety Platform. In addition, the Bilingual Resource Library is full of helpful materials on a wide variety of safety topics. You’ll find short toolbox talk trainings, more in-depth PowerPoint trainings, sample policies and procedures, and safety posters.
Noise-induced hearing loss is one of the most common work-related injuries in the United States. The intensity and duration of exposure are critical factors in evaluating the potential for employee hearing loss. Noises above 85 decibels are considered hazardous.
If you are concerned about the noise levels in your workplace, Archbright can help with:
For either service, we make recommendations on any next steps that may be required.
When workplace conditions and job demands match the worker’s capabilities, safety and productivity improve. Ergonomics is about designing the workplace to reduce risks of strains, sprains, and other musculoskeletal injuries.
Archbright will conduct an Ergonomic Assessment of your employees’ practices that are associated with their work activities. This includes an observation period in common work areas to review ergonomics across multiple work environments, such as offices or the warehouse floor.
Once completed, our Safety & Loss Consultant will provide you with a findings and recommendations report.
If your employees use a respirator in the workplace, they must be fit tested before using it for the first time and re-tested once each year to ensure the respirator still fits correctly.
Archbright offers Respirator Fit Testing, using a pass/fail test method to detect leakage into the respirator facepiece. We can test your employees onsite at your location or in regularly scheduled clinics at our Seattle facility. The test uses the employees’ sense of taste or smell, or their reaction to an irritant, in order to detect any leakage.
Employees must be fit tested with the specific make, model, style, and size of respirator that they commonly use to perform their job.
