Compliance Risk Assessment

Do You Have the Big Picture of Your Risk Exposure?

As an employer, you are obligated to keep your workforce and worksites safe, however knowing which regulatory requirements you are responsible for adhering to can be complex and confusing—especially if you have multiple facilities or locations.

H&A’s COMPLIANCEAction Assessment gives you a snapshot of your current risk exposure, analyzes gaps that could land you a fine from OSHA, the EPA, DOT, or other regulatory agencies, and provides you with an action plan—all for about the cost of a single, serious OSHA citation.

Once you have a clear picture of your compliance risk assessment, you can choose from one of three service levels:

  • Option 1: We’ll create a prioritized list of short- and long-term action items for your staff to implement
  • Option 2: We’ll partner with you to divide and conquer
  • Option 3: We’ll take full accountability for executing corrective actions for physical hazard issues

If you choose to partner with H&A for ongoing compliance risk assessment, a portion of the cost will be deducted from your first invoice. 95% of our clients who enroll in our ASSUREDCompliance® program renew every year.  

OSHA’s Policies are Getting Stricter

  • Over the past 5 years, the average penalty for a serious OSHA citation increased from $1,000 to $5,015
  • Annual inflation increases to the penalty maximums have shifted from $7,000 to $13,495 for 2020
  • The statute of limitations for considering an employer’s history of violations and repeated violations has expanded from 3 to 5 years
  • The number of inspections climbed to a 15-year high 
  • The number of citations is the highest in nearly two decades

The ROI of Risk Reduction

Expense factors range from medical to administrative to loss in productivity—but there’s also an enduring cost—the increase to your workers’ compensation modifier, which will increase your premium for years to come if you experience a workplace injury.

By reducing the risk of injury and non-compliance through tools and programs like H&A’s ASSUREDCompliance® , you can receive both a return on your investment and the peace of mind that your workforce is protected.

“Hellman & Associates has become our partner, and they give us a high level of response and attention.  They’ve demonstrated that when we have them look at a problem or do an audit, they come back with good recommendations that decrease our risk. The quality of their work has gotten credibility because they evaluate the intent of each regulation and what makes sense.  It’s evident they’re aware that we have to continue running the business. There is no doubt in my mind that we’re getting back every dollar we invest, and our improvement has justified our ongoing relationship.”
