Every company should develop a comprehensive Safety Program as an effective way to comply with OSHA standards and prevent workplace injuries and illnesses.
Although each workplace is different based on the industry and size of the organization, the following are the most common OSHA requirements that apply to many general industry employers.
Most Common OSHA Requirements
- Hazard Communications – if your employees are exposed to hazardous materials in the workplace, this section will explain how to protect employees.
- Emergency Action Plan – describes actions employers take to ensure employee safety during fires, tornadoes, floods, or other emergency situations.
- Fire Safety
- Exit Routes
- Walking/Working Surfaces – avoiding accidents such as slips, trips, and falls.
- Medical First Aid – provide medical first aid supplies commensurate with the hazards of the workplace.
Other requirements may apply such as electrical, lockout/tagout, confined space, and bloodborne pathogens depending on the work performed by the company and your industry segment.
