Protect your business from OSHA/EPA fines

Osha Safety Program for Painting Contractors

This safety program is designed for your painting business: What to do. When to do it. And how to do it. In plain English.

We’ve developed tools to help you implement and document safe work practices in the quickest and easiest way possible. This will help protect your business from fines and your workers from serious injuries.

There are too many standards, they take too long to decipher, and those that apply to you are mixed in with a lot that don’t. You just want to know what you actually have to do!

OSHA requires that you do three things:

  • You MUST have written safety plans that your workers (employees and/or subs) know about and agree to follow. Our Program Gives you:
    • 24 matching written plans you need to have on file or in the field
      • Your company name and address will be inserted in all the appropriate areas on each written plan
      • Forms are emailed in PDF format at your request within 48 hours of your order
  • You MUST ensure your workers have been trained and briefed about safe work practices. Our Program Gives You:
    • 60+ forms, fact sheets, and other resources
      • A mobile app to streamline compliance in the field and in the office
      • Documentation requirements and their explanation at your fingertips
      • Toolbox Safety Talks for Workers delivered to your inbox every 2 weeks
  • You MUST enforce those written plans and safe work practices in the field. Our Program Courses Gives You:
    • Online Course explaining:
      • What you must do to ensure workers are properly trained and equipped to conduct themselves safely on the job-site (employees and subs alike)
      • What your responsibilities are as the business owner or general manager

These are the three pillars of a solid safety program. Putting these in place will dramatically reduce the likelihood of accidents and protect your business.

What We Offer

  • Online course of how OSHA views different labor sources (subs v. employees) and how to handle safety issues for each.

Toolbox Talks Safety Briefings

You must ensure your workers are trained to recognize safety hazards and perform work tasks in a safe manner.

We Get It

Safety isn’t sexy, but accidents do happen and the fines are very real. In fact, while the average OSHA fine is only about $11,000, the distractions created by an accident and/or an inspection often cost more than $100,000 in lost business while you struggle to clean up the mess. DON’T GET CAUGHT UNPREPARED! Use our tools to prevent accidents from happening and minimize the invasiveness of documenting your safety program.
