COMPETENCY & EMPOWERMENT
Competent employees and organizations KNOW the right choices and decisions to make during the course of a workday to ensure the success of their Company's objectives.
Empowered employees and organizations MAKE the right choices and decisions because they have a vested interest in the success of their Company. They know that what they do everyday makes a difference.
Your employees and your management team are your most valuable resources. How they perform, how they think, and how they act each day has a direct impact on the success or struggles of your business.
Do they know what your company objectives are and what role they play in meeting those objectives? Have they been properly trained to recognize and deal with the hazards associated with their specific job task; or the equipment, vehicles, or chemicals
they may operate or be around as part of their job? Are they engaged enough at what they do to feel like they make a difference, or are they coming in to work each day just to collect a paycheck?
Your management team is responsible for enforcing all of your company objectives, strategies, policies, rules, checklists, and audit lists. They are also mentors and coaches to those that work under their guidance and direction. Are they managers or leaders? If there is no vested interest in the success of your business with them, it doesn't take long to trickle down to your employees as well.
Noncompliance issues with OSHA and other federal or state regulatory agencies result in higher costs and vulnerabilities within your company.
Bureau of workers compensation premium costs are a direct result of how safe, or not, your workplace is and must be figured directly into your cost of doing business. Given this, why would you not do everything you could to protect your most valuable asset, and at the same time minimize those costs that you can control by reducing the potential for accidents or injuries on the job?
These additional costs and inefficiencies affect your bottom line. Becoming more efficient and effective at what you do is where Spicer N Associates can assist you.

IT'S THE LAW - OSHA requires employers to provide for the safety, health, and well being of their employees while on the job.
How can you do that if an employee does not care about safety and takes risks?
How can you do that if an employee comes in to work drunk, high, or hung over?
Have your employees been properly trained to recognize the hazards of their job?
90% of accidents in the workplace could have been prevented.
90% of alcoholics and 75% of drug users go to work every day.
Give your employees the knowledge, resources, and skillsets they need to succeed.
