Safety in Paradise is a free, local OSHA resource that can assist businesses throughout the territory impacted by the recent disasters. It is important to remember that employers are still required to ensure a safe and healthy work environment for workers throughout periods of recovery and rebuilding.
To assist employers with this requirement, especially under these less than ideal conditions, Safety in Paradise is available to provide assistance in the form of interventions. Unlike our formal consultation visits, interventions are shorter and can be primarily advisory in nature to assist employers with meeting OSHA requirements. We can provide interventions in the form of worksite evaluations to help address potential recovery-related hazards, training on a variety of safety and health topics, meetings to review and clarify OSHA standards, etc. Also unlike formal visits, interventions do not require employer commitment beyond the intervention itself (i.e. no submission of documentation, ongoing follow-up, etc).
Safety in Paradise is preparing a series of free outreach sessions on a variety of recovery related topics and other OSHA-related information in the near future, so stay tuned! Our office may be reached through our main number 340-693-1146 or our program email firstname.lastname@example.org.
