Lift'n Buddy is designed and distributed by Ergologistics, LLC; manufactured in Fargo, North Dakota, the company is a proud member of MHIA (Material Handling Industry of America), National Safety Council, and MHEDA (Material Handling Equipment Distributors Association).
Ergologistics President, Aaron Lamb, highlighted information from the National Safety Council in his weekly blog, “Make It a Safe Monday.” (http://liftnbuddysafety.blogspot.com/). Lamb suggested that many firms overlook records for workplace safety initiatives and programs, suggesting, “When inspected, a company's attitude towards safety is only as good as its records. My advice is to be prepared and proud when this happens, because your motivation should be to show off how excellently compliant your company is to safety standards.”
The NSC webinar Lamb refers to is: http://tinyurl.com/c38vnd3.
The webinar emphasizes the key elements of the OSHA recordkeeping regulation, including OSHA Recordkeeping Regulation 29 CFR 1904. There are many records companies must keep for statutory compliance, including injury/illness records, training certifications, maintenance and inspection records. The webinar highlights key OSHA reporting requirements for workplace injuries, hospitalizations, and fatalities.
Lamb noted, “The learning curve for addressing work force safety issues needs to be rock-bottom low and expeditious. A company does not want to be saddled with worker injuries. One injury is one too many. A subsequent injury is a pattern.”
