Our programs can go beyond the basic template and go into specific procedures on how you manage safety. Whether it’s a hazard communication program or machine specific lockout/tagout procedures, we can help you develop them.
Site Safety Audits (Inspections)
Trinity Safety Group utilizes its own proprietary mobile application, Noesis, to inspect your job sites and facilities. Our database of has over 13,000 questions to evaluate physical hazards and behaviors with advanced analytics to track issues. Our site audits go beyond OSHA compliance.

We can write new programs or edit existing ones to meet the criteria of any system. This will not only save you time and frustration but improve your chances of getting the next job for an owner using one of these pre-qualification arrangements.
If you’re an owner of a project and want assistance in prequalifying contractors, then we can help there too.

Safety Management System Assessments
One of the best ways to develop leading indicators is to perform Safety Management System Audits and Assessments.

Often, we’ll use this as an introduction to explore your system, develop prioritized recommendations, and develop a strategy for your organization.
Safety Management System Audits
Safety Management System Audits are a deeper dive than Assessments and may involve multiple days of reading policies, verifying training, and interviewing employees. These audits may be customized to t your needs to capture that data that you’re looking to track for developing leading indicators.

We question all levels of leadership, interview employees, and review your written documentation to understand your business operations and how safety ts in. Not every organization is ready to institute a best in class safety system. Each client is at their own point of the safety evolutionary curve and we take the time to learn where you are and how to integrate our proven processes into your business to get you to the next step. Our exploration phase makes sure that we aren’t wasting time on ideas that won’t work for you.
Safety Culture Assessments
Jobsite audits and physical hazard inspections are important, but behaviors lead to more accidents at a rate of almost 10 times that of physical conditions. Employees are the target audience for our training, our safety message, and the ones we’re trying to protect. That is why it is important to get their feedback and understand their view of the safety culture.
Broker and Insurance Carrier Interfacing
Who do you want to know about all of the time and money you invest in your safety program? Companies with high quality safety programs tend to pay lower insurance premiums because of their EMR and schedule credits. In many cases your insurance broker and carrier don’t know all that you’re doing with your program. Depending on the Safety Service agreement we work through as a team, we will provide bi-monthly, quarterly, or biannual reports to your insurance broker to pass on to your carrier. Furthermore, we’ll work with your insurance carrier’s loss control department to leverage the resources available to you. Many carriers oer free safety training, jobsite audits, discounted background checks, discounted drug testing services, and more but they don’t always get discussed. We’ll gather this information and work with your team to determine if any of their service offerings would be a good supplement to ours, so you get the best return on your investment.
Loss Control Assistance
Loss Control visits from insurance carriers can be helpful, time consuming, and confusing all at the same time. Our Safety Facilitator’s are familiar with the Loss Control process and the expectations. We can help you prepare in advance of the visit to save time in the back end.
Site-Specific Safety Plans
We develop customized site-specific safety plans. We’ll meet with your team to discuss the job scope and help you identify potential hazards, while developing a process to control them.
Every incident should be a learning experience and no two incidents are the same. We have a guided process for investigating incidents, documenting them, assigning corrective actions, and monitoring those corrective actions to closure. We understand how to interview employees in a way that gets results for gathering information. Our Safety Facilitators dig deeper into your safety management system and operations to and all upstream contributing causes. This provides you with an improved corrective action list to complete, ensuring that similar injuries don’t occur in the future.
