HYDRA ARC NOSA 5 STAR ACHIEVEMENT

Background
There’s no one “right” way to assess the effectiveness of workplace safety programs. OSHA citations, days away from work, and employee complaints all reflect elements of a company’s culture of safety. Yet safety audits approach the challenge of worker well-being from different angles and examine whether programs and strategies are meeting a company’s goals.

Risk Exposure
An audit can be a minor, internal reflection of current practices, or a full scale, guns blazing analysis of every business process currently in place. An audit will throw up possibilities, early warning signs and even scenarios that can be identified as happening in real-time. The potential for the snowball effect needs to be caught as soon as possible and hence Hydra-Arc embraces the involvement of companies such as NOSA and NQA to enable Hydra-Arc to stay on track on our quest to Zero Harm
