Safety & Health Management Systems for Small Businesses

Now, any business of any size can invest in safety ...for free!

Implementing a Safety and Health Management System (SHMS) at your business can help give you the peace of mind that comes with proactively taking steps to prevent workplace accidents and injuries.

Companies that implement effective safety and health management systems in the workplace can greatly reduce the number and severity of work-related accidents and illnesses. Using the proactive approach presented in Safety and Health Management Systems for Small Businesses, managers and employees work together to identify workplace hazards and potentially dangerous conditions. They develop and implement processes, procedures, and programs to prevent accidents, injuries, and illnesses from occurring. The benefits of implementing such a system are many and include fewer employee lost work days, lower workers’ compensation costs, and higher employee morale and productivity.

Safety and Health Management Systems for Small Businesses is a classroom-quality, self-instructional training program which can help you implement an SHMS that is:

  • Easy to develop
  • Inexpensive
  • Can usually be done in-house
  • Reflects your way of doing business
  • Based on the specific needs of your workplace

Funded by an OSHA-sponsored Susan Harwood grant and developed by North Carolina State University, Safety & Health Management Systems for Small Businesses is a FREE classroom-quality, self-instructional training program. Safety & Health Management Systems for Small Businesses is designed to assist small and medium-sized businesses in developing and implementing an effective safety and health management system.
