The Safety-Health-Environmental Services (SHES) program is a consulting and educational program that was specifically designed for the members of the Grain and Feed Association of Illinois. The sole purpose of this program is to assist members with information and compliance regarding OSHA, EPA and other safety, health and environmental regulations.
In becoming a member of SHES, participants have access to a full-time Association employee who specializes in elevator and workplace safety. You can benefit from this program in many ways by taking advantage of:
- Safety Meetings that are tailored to fit your needs and can include but are not limited to topics such as:
- Personal Electrical Safety
- Fall Protection
- Grain Suffocation/Bin Entry
- Grain Dust Explosions/Fires
- Proactive Safety
- Confined Spaces vs. Permit Required Confined Spaces
- Machine Guarding/Entanglement Prevention
- Barge Loading Safety
- Grain Standard Review (1910.272)
- Lockout/Tagout Safety
- "Update" Bulletins are brief newsletters that will keep you informed of changes in rules and regulations of IEPA, EPA and OSHA.
- A Safety Manual on CD will be provided to all SHES Program members. This manual includes a host of items you need including guidelines, forms, policies, regulations and standards for you to utilize. Because it is on CD, the manual can be fitted to your business and personalized to your specifications.
- One on-site meeting per year at your facility. This meeting is specifically tailored to meet the needs of your company and your employees on a topic or variety of topics of your choice.
- Personal consulting privileges with program participants regarding safety, health and environmental regulation compliance.
- Accident Assistance is for facilities who request help to manage an accident situation and often involves working with IEPA, EPA, OSHA or other regulatory entities to resolve the situation. Facilities benefit from the Association's involvement because of the regulatory knowledge, past experience and the long-standing, positive working relationship with these agencies.
