COVID 19 UPDATE

As of midnight 3/19/2020, Humboldt County DHHS is implementing a Shelter in Place Order!  What does this mean for training with NCSC?  Training that supports essential services, in particular healthcare providers, was exempted from the Order with compliance with CDC, DHHS and AHA guidance.  The Shelter in Place Order is scheduled to go through 4/9/2020 before assessment.  NCSC will, therefore, be rescheduling all other training, including tailgate meetings and any site visits where 6 feet of physical distancing  is not possible.  BLS Provider CPR training for healthcare providers who may be treating or coming into contact with patients with COVID 19 will continue, with reduced class size (under 10), physical distancing, and proper use of PPE, and no sharing of equipment. 

We will continue to be here for your regulatory questions, safe work practice questions, and any program, plan or policy development you will need.  Be well, be safe!

Do You Need NCSC?

How do regulatory agencies affect your business?

  • Fear of Cal-OSHA or other regulatory action or citation
  • Locating and interpreting the, literally, thousands upon thousands of pages of regulations
  • Burdensome amount of time and energy trying to keep up with:
     • Written Programs
     • Compliance with these programs
     • Recordkeeping - When, how, how much?
     • Prevention measures and investigation of accidents, near misses.
  • The Bottom Line - The cost of injuries and worker's compensation premiums.

 

Your Responsibility

A core principle in the establishment of California occupational safety regulation, and what provides the real ‘teeth’ in the law, is the California Penal Code’s Title 10 §387 or, Corporate Criminal Liability Act. The Act holds an employer financially and criminally responsible for the imminent dangers in the workplace that are not remedied in a proscribed period of time.

The corporate entity, or manager/supervisor, must -

1 -  Be knowledgeable of serious dangers to employees; and,
2 -  Correct the danger; and,
3 -  Report to the appropriate agency to avoid criminal penalties.
