Our mission at SCS is to help companies improve safety through programs, policies, procedures, training, and safe work practices.
SCS will conduct an analysis of your facility or process for compliance. This may be done proactively or as the result of an accident or violation. The analysis will highlight areas where codes and standards may change how you conduct business to promote worker safety. Compliance analysis is conducted through the following activities:
Education & Training
The second area of practice is evaluation and training. This includes developing and delivering customized training on safety topics, codes and regulations; occupational procedures analysis and modification, including creation of customized procedure manuals; performing life safety and environmental health and safety surveys and assessments.
These are broken down into three areas of practice:
SCS is able to provide assistance to attorneys, insurance companies and others with case support research and expert testimony regarding OSHA, NFPA, ATF or other local, state or federal work place requirements. This support is most often completed in response to occupational injuries or death. Analyses include review of relevant industry codes, standards, best industry practices and cutting edge research. We then compare those standards with actual events documented in eye witness accounts and authorities’ violation and incident reports to advise the client of their level of responsibility and potential liability. We are then able to provide expert testimony regarding fire, health and safety requirements and associated violations.
Code Development Facilitation
We have experience in all aspects of code development. From chairing technical committees to working directly for standard developing organizations, we have it all covered. Many organizations and manufacturers can benefit from being involved in the code development process and we can show you how. Let us help you get your products recognized or your organization's view heard. Our partners have been directly involved in all of the committees listed on the left and can help you with many others.
