Baker Group Helps Everyone Go Home Safely

Baker Group Helps Everyone Go Home Safely

Employers are responsible for keeping their employees safe. Doing so involves conforming to numerous OHSA safety standards, from teaching employees how to safely do their jobs to creating emergency preparedness plans. But many employers do not have safety departments – nor do they have the time to become safety experts themselves. Today, Baker Group helps fill the gap.

Tracy Haus, director of Baker Group’s seven-member Safety team, says, “A couple of years ago, some of our clients began asking us to provide safety-related services, such as CPR/First Aid classes and safety audits. It made a lot of sense; Baker Group has extensive safety knowledge and an outstanding track record, and making sure employees go home safely at night is one of our cultural values.”

Baker Group’s safety experts have over 50 years of combined experience in such areas as mechanical, electrical and sheet metal trades. They are all OSHA-certified Outreach Instructors and CPR/First Aid Instructors. Baker Group is also accredited through the Iowa Plumbing & Mechanical Systems board to teach safety classes with CEU credits.

Baker Group’s safety consulting and training services include:

  • OSHA 10- and 30-hour construction classes
  • OSHA 10- and 30-hour general industry classes
  • CPR/First Aid
  • Fall Protection
  • Scissor Lift Safety
  • Fork Lift Safety
  • SDS (Safety Data Sheets - Hazard Communication)
  • Site Safety Audits
  • Lockout/Tagout Training
  • Confined Space Training

In addition to offering services at the client’s place of business or at Baker Group, contractors may participate in Baker Group’s internal employee training programs.
