Occupational Safety and Health

Enforcement of the private and public sector shall be used only to obtain compliance with the Act and the rules and regulations established by the Wyoming Occupational Safety and Health Commission. It shall investigate occupational fatalities, safety and health complaints, safety and health discrimination complaints and to ensure inspection coverage in employment areas with high injury rates and to create a significance impact in such industries.

Special Programs

The following first two programs were developed to get employers to reduce the number of injuries that occur in their companies. The motivating factor is to trade penalty monies for claims reduction.

The last program is to get employers to fix hazards as soon as possible in exchange for a reduced penalty.

The expected result is that all parties; employers, employees, and us win. Injuries and claims go down, hazards get fixed, money stays within the company, and production and morale go up! This is a win-win situation.

Safety and Health Programs

The goal of a Health and Safety Program is the development of a long term plan that is successful in reducing injuries in the workplace. Effective management of worker safety and health protection is crucial in reducing the numbers and severity of workplace illnesses and injuries. To be effective, such management must include:

  • Methods to identify and understand all hazards, real and potential
  • Prevention or control of hazards so workers are not exposed or minimize exposure.

Good management also results in prevention or control of employee exposures to toxic substances or other unhealthful conditions which can produce work-related illnesses. Better management systems will produce lower costs, higher productivity, reduced waste and improved employee morale.

The four major elements of an effective health and safety program are:

  1. Management Commitment and Employee Involvement
  2. Worksite Analysis
  3. Hazard Prevention and Control
  4. Safety and Health Training
