YellowBird Manufacturing Safety Consultants
Manufacturing by nature comes with a variety of risks in the workplace. By creating and maintaining an environment where employees feel safe to complete their work without worrying about their physical and mental health, your employees will be more efficient. Employee training, good housekeeping, proper PPE and Machine Guarding will lead to a safe environment in the manufacturing industry.
YellowBird Professionals are available on demand for as little as a couple hours to as long as you need for all of your EHS Manufacturing needs. Our Professionals are trained in niche fields such as performing trainings, ergonomics assessments, risk assessments, and more while being familiar with OSHA regulations to keep you in compliance.
By completing a Risk Assessment, our Professionals will provide a detailed report on recommendations for minimizing, or in best case scenarios eliminating, hazards, risks, accidents, and near misses along with OSHA best practices for manufacturing.
Forklift training will consist of classroom instruction (lecture, discussion, etc), followed by understanding demonstrated by the trainees and finishing with an evaluation of the forklift operation completed by the trainee.
Mock OSHA Inspection
Conducting a mock OSHA inspection will allow our Professionals to identify gaps in the current health and safety program and provide positive recommendations. It also allows companies to learn what they are doing correctly and encourage those practices to continue. All these benefits will result in companies avoiding OSHA fines by abating hazards before they become a problem.
An ergonomics assessment provides different results and recommendations by employee. This process evaluates the risk of musculoskeletal disorders due to a workspace design that doesn’t match the employee’s capabilities, job, or comfort level. The goal is to improve employee well-being and with that, also their job performance.
