The U.S. Department of Labor’s Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) estimated that 5,703 Americans were involved in fatal accidents on the job in 2006. 85% of accidents are caused by unsafe acts. Prevention of these accidents must come from implementing behavioral-based safety training to prevent unsafe acts.
Pearson Safety Services (PSS) is an independent safety consulting firm that works with companies to develop a “safety culture” offering solutions to industrial plants, contractors, and other industries. Through risk management assessment, drug-free workplace, safety training, Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) updates, safety program maintenance, OSHA meetings, site audits, and safety program preparation, PSS works with companies to prevent these fatalities.
“PSS strives to be an intricate partner with our clients, not just scare them into following the rules,” says Donna Pearson Chadwick, CSP and founder of PSS. “We grow with our clients and help them achieve the lowest experience modification rate possible, not only to save them thousands of dollars through both tangible and intangible costs, but to help make sure every one of their workers returns home at night in the same condition as they left that morning.”
