RESAP isn't merely a process to go through every three years; it's a comprehensive source of information you can use to decide where you excel and areas that need improvement.
Use the RESAP observation form on an ongoing basis to conduct your own hands-on evaluation.
The RESAP evaluation shows what is happening with regard to safety at your cooperative.
Your RESAP scores, OSHA and Workers' Compensation data are proof of that.
Provide new board members with a Culture of Safety orientation that includes year-to-date figures and trends, information from your statewide organization, your last RESAP accreditation--basically any information that will bring them up-to-speed quickly on safety issues.
Instead of always having your Safety Director speak, ask a field supervisor to give a hands-on perspective about your upcoming RESAP accreditation or how new equipment is helping crews get a job done faster and more safely.
