Safety and Health
Employee well-being, regulatory requirements, industry expectations and medical expenses are challenging for many organizations. IMEC manufacturing specialists work with employers to develop customized approaches to meeting and exceeding the demands of managing safety and health programs.
IMEC manufacturing specialists have worked with various companies throughout Illinois and offer a broad range of practical and industry experience. They are OSHA Authorized Outreach Training Providers. While IMEC has no affiliation with OSHA, its specialists are trained to recognize problems, understand regulatory requirements and are prepared to bring companies to compliance before fines or accidents can occur.
Working with IMEC
IMEC works with manufacturers to develop a comprehensive approach to safety and health programs that can include very specific services, such as an in-depth assessment, safety committee coordination, employee manual creation or training activity. Safety and health management is a continuous effort and requires regular assessment, training and management activities.
As part of a comprehensive plan, IMEC visits monthly or quarterly on site to provide the expertise and required manpower to keep the safety and health program updated. Typical quarterly visits consist of assessment of shop activities, employee refresher and specialized training, as well as management planning. All activities are documented for future reference in the event of insurance audits or regulatory inspections.
