Health and safety regulations and requirements are constantly evolving and so must your HSE management and compliance programs. Health and safety regulations can come from federal OSHA, State-approved OSHA programs, national organizations and consensus standards, and local department of health agencies.

If remaining in compliance in this shifting landscape worries you, we are the perfect health and safety consultants for you. Our HSE experts stay on top of all health and safety compliance issues, directives and regulations, and can help manage the burden of regulatory compliance and reducing HSE risk at your facility. Our HSE advisors provide auditing services, risk assessment reviews of your practices, and HSE compliance for all applicable federal, state and local regulations.

Examples of our HSE compliance auditing services include:

  • Multimedia or focused auditing (federal and state OSHA, or specific regulatory standard within federal or state OSHA requirements)
  • Corporate safety requirement auditing
  • General industry standard
  • Construction standard
  • Injury and illness reporting and recordkeeping
  • Equipment or operation-specific auditing
  • Process safety management compliance
  • Safety permit development and completion

Unlike software packages or junior associates, our expert auditors know how risk mitigation strategies will play out in the real world. We are able to customize HSE management systems and recommend health and safety compliance strategies that have been effectively implemented many times before.

Applicability determinations are used to identify what regulatory requirements apply to business operations, activities and equipment. Applicability determinations are useful for tracking compliance obligations for existing operations, for determining if compliance obligations change as a result of a newly issued rule or rule amendment, or for identifying compliance obligations associated with a facility change or new operation. OSHA and other regulatory authorities issue statutes, standards and regulations for HSE compliance on a regular basis that can be difficult to interpret for your particular application. VBA can review all operations, activities, and equipment to identify regulations that apply, and what compliance initiatives you may need to implement to achieve compliance.

Our team of expert health and safety consultants can recommend if a health safety applicability determination is an appropriate endeavor for you to undertake and answer the question, “Which safety rules apply to me?” As one of the leading health and safety compliance consulting firms, we stay up-to-date with all the newest rulings, regulations, determinations, enforcement initiatives and guidance. Services we specifically provide in this area include:

  • Regulatory health and safety applicability determinations
  • Corporate requirement applicability determinations
  • Applicability assessment tool development, including compliance tools and compliance calendars
  • Documentation of negative applicability

Please contact us here or call 636-458-3382 today to determine applicable environmental rules or get started on your application.

Successful implementation of health and safety management systems creates employee buy-in and must stand the test of time to ensure ongoing compliance and worker protection. Onsite injuries, OSHA recordables, and lost days are all preventable, but getting everyone to participate in initiatives to prevent them is critical.

Whether you need a simple health and safety management plan for one facility or a complicated management system that covers multiple locations, VBA’s HSE management system consultants provide leading health and safety management system development and implementation, including:

  • OSHA and other regulatory compliance systems
  • RCMS management systems
  • Corporate requirement management systems
  • Management system audits and gap assessments

Our process for developing health, safety and environmental management systems, and other HSE audit services, begins when you contact VBA so that one of our experts can discuss your needs. From there we identify your goals and make recommendations based on our knowledge of regulatory requirements and your operations and specific needs.

Any new solutions we help you implement protect your business and employees for the long-run by meeting important compliance deadlines with accurate information and effective processes. Our on-going support means you don’t have to worry about missing important regulatory updates and deadlines.
