Our mission as safety consultants is to educate our clients on how health and safety and OSHA compliance programs add value to the organization, and to guide and assist them in designing, implementing, and executing programs which protect their interests and support their goals.
Some of the core values that guide our mission are:
“Safety is an investment, not an expense”. Your organization’s safety function should be treated like any other function in the organization. If there was a department in your company that added nothing to the bottom line, and was pure expense, what would you do? You’d eliminate that function of course. Some managers feel that way about safety and as a result, they don’t invest in it. Then the accidents and related costs start piling up. Smart owners and managers expect to see a return on every penny, and your investment in safety and safety consulting is no different.
“Organizations have the greatest chance of success when everyone is doing what they were hired to do”. Every single employee in your organization is good at something, or at least good enough to have been hired in the first place. But when those people are given assignments, or placed into roles for which they don’t have the requisite knowledge, skills or abilities (like developing a written AWAIR program or haz-com program, or conducting OSHA safety training), not only will they fail in their new assignment, but they’ll also fail in their regular job. Using an expert safety consulting service like Sotera Consulting lets everyone do what they were hired to do.
“The simplest solution to any problem is usually the correct one”. Many of the issues we address as safety consultants aren’t complicated. Slips/trips/falls, back injuries, eye injuries, etc; these are all simple issues with simple solutions (usually). No matter how complicated your issues are, we will provide clear, concise advice, that makes your job simple, because there’s no need for complication.
