CUSTOM WRITTEN OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH PROGRAMS
Written safety & health plans are an important part of a company’s safety & health program. Not only does OSHA require companies to have written programs, but often times, contractors require safety & health programs to be submitted as part of the pre-qualification process.
Through the audit process, a consultant will discuss your company’s operation and hazards that your employees may encounter in addition to specific information such as persons responsible for implementing your safety & health program, hazards specific to your operation, personal protective equipment that is utilized, evacuation routes and procedures, and more. Once your company’s information has been obtained, we will be equipped with the information needed to create customized safety programs for your company.

Are OSHA State and Federal laws giving you headaches?
The magnitude of OSHA construction safety standards can be overwhelming. Our specialized expertise and experience at working with OSHA and state-level safety issues will help you anticipate and meet the legal requirements for worker safety. Our professionals will audit your jobsites to identify situations that are likely to draw OSHA attention and serve as your representatives during regulatory inspections. We can also help you develop your own written safety standards, policies, procedures, and training programs based on regulatory requirements.
SAFETY PROGRAMS AND SITE SPECIFIC PLANS
Whether it’s a new safety program you need or just an update of your current safety program to meet new requirements, DELFINE DESIGN + BUILD will work with you to develop the program you need. When developing a safety and health program, our advisors will work with your team to draft a specialized set of standards, policies and procedures. The potential safety program components are based on construction standards from OSHA. Through collaboration, the actual individualized components of the program are selected and incorporated.
OSHA INSPECTION AND CITATION ASSISTANCE
We will help manage the regulatory inspection process at your jobsite. Our safety professionals have years of experience managing these situations from opening to informal conference. Post OSHA inspection, you will receive a safety order package which includes detailed information about the auditor’s inspection including any citations, fines and classifications. It is your company’s right to request a follow up meeting with OSHA referred to as an informal conference. This provides an opportunity to reduce fines and reclassify citations.
OSHA RECORDKEEPING AND DOCUMENTATION
DELFINE DESIGN + BUILD will assist your company in understanding all of the statutory recordkeeping requirements identified by OSHA. When evaluating an incident, sometimes the decision to record the incident or not can be confusing. In addition, understanding knowing how to properly complete the OSHA 300 Log regarding recordable incidents, classifications, calculating days away from work and posting requirements can be confusing. There are many other recordkeeping requirements related to OSHA compliance such as how long to archive safety documents, health evaluations and product information. DELFINE DESIGN + BUILD can help.
CONSTRUCTION SAFETY INSPECTIONS

Our safety professionals have been successfully performing construction safety inspections on some of the largest projects in the Northeast. We identify potential OSHA violations, liability issues and risk exposures while assisting clients with mitigating hazards before they damage the reputation of the company and injure employees.
The best defense against injury and loss is a comprehensive understanding of risks and deficiencies within your construction company and your projects. Through job site safety inspections and observations, our professionals will develop a useful and practical analysis of safety issues along with recommendations for remediation of problems. We use the same methodologies and standards employed by OSHA and the insurance industry – or your own safety standards – as the basis for our review. DELFINE DESIGN + BUILD’S safety professionals are trained to assess sites and provide written feedback of findings in a manner that is easily understood by the client.
