Why we created the Close Group Health and Safety Portal
We at the Close Group designed this Health and Safety Portal for the present and the future. We designed it to help those people in an organization tasked with health and safety responsibilities that are being asked to do more with less. Couple that with an interesting report that came out of NIOSH in 2011 where they predicted an ever widening shortage of health and safety professionals over the foreseeable future. Organizations are held responsible for worker safety and regulatory compliance yet there are fewer and fewer people resources available to fulfill these obligations. Those people who understand the nuances of the regulations and can comprehensively translate regulation into practice are becoming more rare. Simply said, Health and Safety Professionals at organizations large and small need help. The Health and Safety Portal is designed to fulfill this need. We use the 30+ years of expertise our firm and puts the information in a formats useable by the people who need it. You don’t have to have a regulatory expert on staff, let the Close Group serve as your health and safety expert. Through this portal you will have a regulatory expert review your programs, use the powers of an relational database to create customized site safety plans, have your employees access online health and safety training and then manage your health and safety records at the touch of a finger. Health and Safety Program Hosting is meant to make your health and safety information accessible, relevant and above all utilized by those who need it.
Health and Safety Program Hosting
Once we have reviewed and made any necessary changes to your health and safety program we load it onto our Health and Safety Portal in a manner that your users may instantly find the information they are looking for.

Our goal is to make your health and safety program more accessible and the information attainable in a more relevant manner.
