Appendix I: Sources of Information & Assistance

Other Companies

It is likely that businesses in your area or those similar to yours have encountered common problems. It is possible that they have found a simple, efficient solution. Most managers are willing to share information in the area of workplace safety and health.

Equipment Manufacturers

Most equipment manufacturers are concerned with safety in the use of their products. To help their existing and potential customers -- and to minimize their liability in the event of adverse legal action, they are more than willing to furnish advice and engineering information to enhance safe operation of their equipment.

Insurance Companies

Many liability and fire insurance companies conduct periodic inspections and visits to evaluate safety and health hazards and to give guidance and assistance in the establishment and/or monitoring of a program. Contact your insurance agent to see what is available.

Trade Associations & Employer Groups

Many trade associations and employer groups emphasize safety and health matters to better serve their members. If you are a member of such a group, find out what is being done to help its members. If you are not a member, find out if the groups circulate their materials to non-members -- many do. The National Fire Protection Association provides training materials, consulting services, and the National Fire Protection Codes.
