We at VIRSIG recognize our employees as our most valued asset. As a result, we have developed and implemented safety policies, procedures and training designed to identify, reduce and mitigate sources of worker injury. These safety policies are designed to comply with the Standards of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and to endeavor to maintain a safe and injury/illness free workplace.
We understand that not only do our industry regulators and insurance carriers require a culture of proactive Environmental Health and Safety, but that our customers, who are our reason for being, deserve no less. To this end, VIRSIG’s safety policy applies to all employees, regardless of position within the company, and applies to all subcontractors and anyone who is on a company project/job site.
Our safety policies cover worksite safety practices, i.e., fall prevention, power tool safety, hazardous materials / and hazard communications, electrical safety, ladders, personal protective equipment such as respiratory protection, etc. VIRSIG maintains an assigned ‘competent person’ as defined as in 29 CFR 1926.32(f), that is our Safety Officer.
VIRSIG's Safety Officer works with the Executive Director to document and maintain injury and illness records as per OSHA and/or the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and State laws for those states in which we conduct business.
