As a business owner or manager it is up to you to address and discuss with your employees the importance of doing the job safely. Fire hazards, Accident Prevention, Hazard Communications, are just some examples. Communicating a strategy for safety handling chemicals could prevent injuries such as chemical burns, and having a program already established and relayed to your workers could make a huge positive impact on your business!
You may also be required to have a safety manual to comply with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s rules.
Safety Advantage can prepare and submit your compliance programs for you, as well as handle the tedious upkeep of your auditor websites. Sign up for our Master Safety Program and you will receive 1 binder hard copy of your safety programs as well as digital copies and 1 year of assistance with all of your auditor websites.
“If you are not sure if this applies to your company you can get information on regulations, compliance assistance and how to find and control workplace hazards on the OSHA website. You can get help from OSHA’s Office of Small Business Assistance by calling (202) 693-2220, visiting the small business section of the website or contacting the office by mail.
⚠️Ignorance of appropriate safety practices or failing to write safety practices down for employee reference could damage your business.⚠️
You could even be legally responsible for workplace accidents and other problems, such as not complying with OSHA rules.”
