EI's COVID-19 Professional Services >> more info <<
EI’s long history of providing expert safety consulting services is supplemented by our engineering staff to support specific project needs. For example, in many manufacturing settings and several construction situations, engineering seals may be required on safety-related drawings, such as Life Safety or NFPA Hazardous Area Classifications drawings. EI can support the assessment of other NFPA code requirements or deviations, providing expert analysis, including Arc Flash assessments and requirements.
Further, our long-term and broad experience in manufacturing facilities provides a basis for our engineers to support physical improvements to enhance employee safety and health.
Finally, our engineering background in understanding various manufacturing processes allowes our engineers tackle various Process Safety issues with technical and practical astuteness. This is often evident in the Process Hazard Analysis efforts in determining the appropriate assessment method, in reading and breaking-down P&IDs, and supporting the evaluation of multiple events or human influences. These qualifications allow our efforts to lead PHAs more effectively.
Several safety standards require the use of a qualified engineer. EI is pleased to offer such services which include:
- Scaffold requirements such as design of tube and coupler scaffold greater than 125 feet
- Design for protective systems and structural ramps in excavation practices
- Lift slab construction design
- Fall Protection systems analysis
IN NEED OF OUR SERVICES?
On April 10, 2020, OSHA issued a memorandum which relaxed the rules for recording cases of COVID-19 on the OSHA 300. EI first reported on this topic back on April 15, 2020. More recently, OSHA issued another memorandum intended to provide guidance for compliance officers, rescinding those earlier restrictions and returning to standard recordkeeping practices for all employers as of May 26, 2020.
