Providing a Safe Workplace

safe workplace responsibility blogSpecified Building Products specializes in providing contractors, architects, employers and business owners with reliable products designed to protect building occupants against the dangers of a fire.  In 2014 U.S. fire departments responded to an estimated 1,240,000 fires that resulted in 3,240 fatalities.  We partner with the most reliable industry names to ensure that the products you purchase and install work at the very moment you need them to.

Beyond the purchase or the evacuation plan, employers have a responsibility to their employees to provide a workplace that is free from recognized hazards which complies with all the standards, rules, codes and regulation issued by OSHA.  Some of these include:

  • Use color codes, posters, labels or signs to warn employees of potential hazards
  • Establish or update operating procedures regularly
  • Posting any OSHA posters or the state-plan equivalent that discusses employees rights and responsibilities

This list is quite lengthy and it is one that as an employer, you should be familiar with.  To read the entire list or access other useful OSHA materials you can do so HERE.  For information about fire safety products offered by Specified Building Products, you can call our office at 877-903-9090 or email us at info@specifiedbuilding.com.
