Total Safety Compliance provides high quality consulting services to suit your specific needs. There are many services available, view the items below to match what services you may need.
Quantitative Fit Testing*
Fit testing requirements are based in the OSHA Standard for respiratory protection 29 CFR1910.132. The recommended fit test method is quantitative. There are two types of fit testing that TSCC can provide. The first is with the Porta-Count, a particle counter that measures particles inside and outside the mask to give a fit factor. The second is with controlled negative pressure. TSCC utilizes a DNI FT 3000 which draws the air out of the mask and tests the seal under “pressure.”
Qualitative Fit Testing*
This is fit testing utilizing one of three “atmospheres” to check if there is a simulated exposure under the mask of the end user. The three types of sampling kits include banana oil (isoamyl acetate), irritant smoke, and bitrex/saccharin. *TSCC will utilize banana oil unless otherwise specified before fit testing occurs.
*The customer must provide documented proof of completed medical questionnaire and received clearance from an approved physician or licensed health care practitioner.
Written Program Development
TSCC specializies in site specific/functional written programs that are required by OSHA. There are many written programs that are required. Listed below is a sample of just a few written programs that we can provide.
Bloodborne Pathogens (Exposure Control Plan)
Hazard Communication (HAZCOM)
Lock Out Tag Out
Permit Required Confined Space
Personal Protective Equipment
Chemical Hygiene (For Laboratories)
Injury Illness Prevention Program (IIPP)
There are many others please call a TSCC representative for more info. (Contact Us)
Job Hazard Analysis (JHA)
Also referred to as Job Safety Analysis (JSA), is a system of identifying hazards in locations to provide protection to employees. TSCC strictly adheres to the hierarchy of controls during the inspection/ride along phases of JHA/JSA creation. Following the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.134 (d), (2) TSCC will set up three phases with you to help manage a better project. The first phase will be the initial meetings and actual assessments in the field. The second phase will be writing the JHA/JSA and the third phase will be implementation, testing, and training of each JHA/JSA created.
Job Site Inspections
TSCC will come to your location to provide inspection data whether you are working on a construction site, manufacturing floor or a Vactor truck crew. These inspections include trip ride-alongs, inspection data and an executive summary. A detailed report can be provided for an additional cost. If you need a more thorough inspection see the Audit link on the home page for a listing of official third part Audit solutions.
Once an accident occurs at your workplace immediate attention is needed. If you lack having a trained safety professional available right after the accident TSCC can come to the accident location and perform a detailed analysis of the accident, to include finding root causes performing a fault tree analysis and providing a report outlined with photos and timeline. A compete recreation(re-enactment) is possible, call for more details.
Confined Space Assessments
If you enter into confined spaces, OSHA requires each space entered must be assessed for hazards. TSCC will perform assessments and complete an inventory which will list all spaces identified during the visit with a list of potential hazards and appropriate protective measures.
Energy Control Procedures
If you have any equipment that needs maintenance, service or repair an energy control procedure is required. Under the OSHA standard 29 CFR 1910.147 the employer must provide energy control procedures (ECP). TSCC will provide the initial assessment and a procedure identified by you for completion. TSCC will bundle the procedures so that they are all together in one complete quick reference binder.
TSCC can set up a safety professional on a frequent basis (usually once per month) to visit your facility to manage a pre-created list of items to meet compliance and ensure safety for all employees. This is a great alternative if you cannot afford to have a full time paid safety professional. Services provided under the safety management program includes monthly training, written programs, OSHA filing for injuries and safety inspections.
TSCC can coach and mentor your supervisors for items that would normally be overlooked in the realm of health and safety. First the supervisors must attend a “Safety for the Supervisor” course. Then, the supervisors will be guided in the field with hands on instruction on working with their employees to help coach them and start looking and thinking about all potential hazards. Finally, the supervisors will be tested to ensure the training was effective. The overall time frame for Supervisor Mentoring usually takes 3-4 weeks depending on the number of supervisors on your staff.
Process Hazard Analysis(PHA)
Under the PSM regulation 29 CFR 1910.119 a PHA must be performed every 5 years. TSCC can revalidate a current PHA or provide support, guidance and written documentation of a completed new PHA. Projected timeline completion varies depending on plant size and team members involved. TSCC primarily utilizes a “What If” checklist to perform the PHA.
Process Safety Management Plan (PSM)
TSCC can perform a myriad of services within the PSM regulations. We can perform on site audits to test the functionality of a current PSM. TSCC can also create a new PSM if one does not exist. Do you need a PSM? Click this link to find out> PSM LIST OF ACUTELY HAZARDOUS MATERIALS
Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures (SPCC)
TSCC can provide services to meet the EPA’s requirement for the SPCC plan. An initial visit will be required to identify sources of oil based products. Once there is a determination for applicability under the SPCC requirements, a plan will be created. Estimated timeline for this project is usually around 2-3 months.
California HAZMAT Business Plan
California Certified Unified Program Agencies (CUPA) require County wide business plans that exceed their limit for hazardous materials. This plan requires fee submittals and applications towards a county relationship for inspection, enforcement and fire code response. Typically, the Fire Marshall, or county inspector(s) will identify this need. It makes better proactive sense to find out first to avoid any costly penalties for non-submittal. TSCC will work closely with you and your resident county to ensure compliance and a healthy relationship.
MSDS GHS SDS Compilation
Are you missing an MSDS? Is your MSDS binder updated. TSCC can provide services to update you HAZCOM program requirement for MSDS’s. If you have chemicals at your facility, chances are you need an MSDS. A current MSDS filing system must be maintained and stay current to provide employees with the most up-to-date information on hazards associated with your chemical inventory.
Industrial Hygiene Services
Indoor Air Quality
Sometimes odors may create havoc to a workplace. In other situations air quality may be stale or otherwise inhabitable. TSCC will work closely with management, employees and other affected personnel to identify sources of potential malodors whether from a source of contamination or simple personal hygiene change.
TSCC follows the most up do date standards for exposure assessments whether it is OSHA, NIOSH or your own sampling methods. TSCC utilizes MSA escort ELF pumps and partners with Analytics for laboratory analysis.
Health and Safety Employee Perception Surveys
If you need to provide a snapshot of the company's safety culture then an employee perception survey will work for you. The purpose of a survey is to identify what management and workers perceive to be their most important needs and develop an action plan that responds to those needs.
Why is it important to know what the perceptions are? There is much truth to the old saying that perception is reality. This is particularly true in the realm of the safety program which relies to a large degree on what people think or feel. A safety system might have all the appropriate "technical" elements in place including safety meetings, investigations, inspections, training, etc. but that isn't enough to ensure success. Even a technically sound program can be undermined by negative perceptions of its effectiveness.
TSCC will start out with team meetings with management and 1st line supervisors. Then the survey will be issued during a normal safety training class to employees. The data will be compiled and TSCC will provide a full report to the client.
