Become a Member
Membership with the Safety Council is a key way to increase profits and productivity. Why? Because safety and sound management are essential for success. A modest investment in safety will reduce accident expenses significantly.
An Investment in Safety Pays Dividends for Life!
Increased insurance costs, workers’ compensation premiums, medical expenses, employee injury, absenteeism and downtime are all profit killers. Employer members demonstrate genuine concern for their employee’s health and safety. Hundreds of South Florida companies know that a successful safety and health program ensures good employee relations. Productivity and loyalty are by products of a healthier safer work environment.
OSHA Compliance Assistance
Compliance with the OSHA and state Laws has become increasingly complex and stringent. Federal and state law requires that each company with twenty or more employees have a safety committee. OSHA also requires each company of this size to maintain a safety program.
The Safety Council is a single convenient source of up to the minute information on OSHA and state standards. We also provide comprehensive compliance packages to fulfill your regulatory needs. When you become a member, you have a great resource you can turn to, and a network of like minded companies and organizations that are your fellow members.
