The COVID-19 pandemic has caused businesses of all kinds to start taking extra precautions to care for the safety of their employees and customers. Safety organizations like OSHA, the CDC and WHO have implemented regulations for businesses that rely on in-person employees to keep their business running. Here are the OSHA regulations you should know from STC:

Understand the Risk Factor Your Job Presents

The new OSHA regulations classify every job type as either low, medium or high exposure risk, depending on a variety of factors. Lower exposure risk jobs do not require contact with the general public or those possibly infected with the virus, while medium risk jobs require it frequently. High-risk jobs have a high potential for exposure to people with the virus, such as healthcare workers, medical transport workers and mortuary workers involved with preparing.

How COVID-19 Exposure Can Affect Your Business

There are a great number of ways in which COVID-19 exposure can affect your business and employees. This is a virus that can cause widespread, extensive outbreaks that will likely affect more than one employee without taking special precautions. Absenteeism is the most likely outcome, with one or many employees needing to take sick leave due to the virus. The virus affects people of all kinds, so many businesses will also notice a change in consumer demand.

OSHA Regulations for Reducing Virus Exposure

Every employer, regardless of risk factor, should take precautions against COVID-19, as stated by the new OSHA regulations. Start by understanding the sources in your business where and how coronavirus infections may occur. Work to isolate these sources to lower infection risk. All workers should be encouraged to wash hands frequently, social distance and practice respiratory etiquette. Any employee with a sickness of any kind should remain at home.

No matter what precautions will work best for your business, STC is here to help reduce your infection risk through COVID-19 monitors and safety consulting. Our team works hard to protect human life and deliver results that keep your employees and customers safe. Want to learn more about OSHA regulations or Safety Training & Consulting?

As the coronavirus continues to spread across the world, many companies are finding new ways to keep their employees safe. The construction industry is no exception, and many are starting to explore the advantages of on site medical staffing. STC is here to guide you through the benefits of utilizing our onsite safety services to keep employees safe during COVID-19:

COVID-19 Monitors for Construction

The construction industry, like many others, is likely to take a massive hit in the event of crew members becoming infected with the virus. Preventing this from happening is as simple as utilizing on site medical staffing from certified nursing assistants. Our CNA’s will monitor your staff each day to ensure that temperatures are low, and no visible symptoms are showing.

The Benefits of On Site Medical Staffing

While peace of mind is certainly a great benefit of our on site medical staffing services, there are a large number of other ways it can improve your business. Your crew will feel comfortable entering the worksite each day and if someone shows up sick, it will be caught much earlier than without. With onsite safety services, you can prevent your entire crew from needing sick leave.

Application in Many Other Industries

From office buildings to retail locations, our COVID-19 monitors will work to protect your business and workers from the effects of the virus. One infection can drain your entire workforce due to the contagious nature of the novel coronavirus. The first step to ensuring any business can operate during the pandemic is preventing your employees from getting sick.

While the future of the coronavirus in the United States is uncertain, evidence has shown that every precaution needs to be taken to prevent it from spreading. At STC, we take safety seriously and our dedicated team is here to help your business thrive during the COVID-19 pandemic. Want to learn more about the services STC offers? Check out our blog today!

At Safety Training and Compliance, safety is our highest priority, but the benefits our clients receive are much more meaningful than simply achieving OSHA compliance. We work hard to deliver an experience that transforms the safety and culture of every client. Here are the ways that STC partners with companies to deliver meaningful outcomes and improve their culture:

The STC Approach to Improving Culture

When you work with STC, safety training is only a fraction of the benefits you’ll receive. We are dedicated to understanding every detail of your business so that we can improve the way your team and company operates. Our team is highly motivated to help companies develop a safety culture based on increased productivity, employee satisfaction and improved outcomes.

Putting in Hours vs. Culture Building

STC does business differently to help our clients get more out of our services. Instead of the hourly billing structure that is common in our industry, we form partnerships based on getting the job done right. We don’t stop putting in hard work for your business when you’ve reached your allotted service time. We work with you until we’ve achieved a long-lasting safety culture.

The Benefits of Culture Building in the Workplace

The role a company’s culture plays on the success of their business cannot be underestimated. Research shows that culture building in the workplace can create a motivated community of employees that work well together. A solid company culture will create a clear message and an attainable goal for everyone to follow. We’ve seen it a countless number of times in our clients.

No matter how you choose to improve the safety of your business, STC is here to create a long-lasting partnership rooted in your success. We will latch onto the traction your company already has and work from there to create better results, build company culture and improve the safety of your workforce.

Do you realize the effects a good safety record can have on your business? How can others tell if you have a good safety record?

The answers to these questions can be found in your company’s EMR, a safety metric that is stashed away in the company’s profile which has a large impact on your bottom line.

What is an EMR?

An Experience Modification Rate (EMR) is a “Key Performance Indicator (KPI)” that insurers use to determine the likelihood that a company will experience a worker’s compensation claim. An above average EMR will drive premiums up. Adversely, a low EMR keeps insurance rates low. But wait, there’ more…….

Your company’s EMR doesn’t only impact your insurance premiums. It is the only consistent and measurable metric of safety on a job site used by both government and private owners when considering bids, and it can have a tremendous impact throughout the bidding process.

How is Your EMR Calculated?

Calculating your company’s EMR can involve some extensive calculations that, for the purposes of this article, we will leave up to the insurers.

In a nutshell, it compares your specific payroll and loss history to other businesses in the same industry and of like-size. This is compared to a calculation of expected losses for a company conducting similar work within the same state and modified for the size of the employer.

If you have an average rate among similar businesses of similar size, then your EMR would be 1.0. If your history is 10% better than average, your EMR would be .90 or 10% worse at 1.10.

How is Your EMR affecting your Bottom Line?

Even though your EMR is calculated for insurance purposes and has a direct and measurable impact on your company’s premiums, there are other ways it impacts your bottom line.

1. Most Importantly, Your Employees Are Being Injured On Your Watch

  • That safety metric (EMR) that is stashed away in your profile, represents actual people that are being impacted by injury within your company.
  • Injuries that are preventable.
  • Impacted lives, that are preventable.
  • Aside from the massive human costs by these injuries, these injuries are costing your company time and money that your competitors, with a lower EMR, aren’t spending.

2. Losing Large Contracts

  • By having a significantly higher EMR than your competitors, you put yourself in an extreme disadvantage with other considerations being equal.
  • Or worse, your competitors may be submitting higher bid prices, but still winning the bid due to their excellent EMR.

One Final Question….

How Can You Improve Your EMR?

Improving your EMR is a direct result of improving and changing your company’s mind-set and culture in regards to safety. In other words, IMPROVE YOUR SAFETY, IMPROVE YOUR EMR.

The easy answer is to avoid hazardous situations and prevent accidents that result in injuries, claims and losses. Naturally, this is a lot “easier said than done”. With the right assistance, you can improve in all of these areas.

STC can provide:

COMPREHENSIVE safety solutions and provide an innovative and customized approach that stays on top of initiatives, responsibilities, and most importantly, the employees’ health and safety for their best quality of life.

PROACTIVE deployment of industry best practices, efficiencies and proven processes. We establish leading indicators in an interactive cloud-based system that targets behaviors and trends and ultimately reduces compliance issues and injuries.

RESPONSIVE We leverage powerful technology tools so you can make informed business decisions based on your company’s needs. Our team is committed to real time reporting for a fast response to unsafe situations.

Safety does pay off, whether it’s the safety of your employees, the cost of your premiums, or winning the bids for the work you’re looking for.

With the right help, you can strengthen your bottom line ten-fold.

STC Safety Award

For the past four months, STC has partnered with Harmon, Inc. at the American Airlines campus construction site in Fort Worth, TX. Recently, Harmon was recognized by the site’s GC, Austin Commercial, as the first top safety subcontractor of the month for January 2018.

This type of safety culture has given way to a more productive and efficient work site for Austin Commercial, Harmon, and all other subcontractors involved with the project.

At STC, we are focused on preserving the word’s most precious resource – human life.
