OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY SERVICES
No matter if you’re a new business or have an existing business that needs to update its occupational health and safety standards to comply with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), these workplace safety rules are a key part in the success and continuation of your company.
OSHA Occupational Safety and Health Requirements
The OSHA workplace standards were introduced in 1970 in the OSHA Act. They protect employees from illnesses, injuries and death at the workplace. They also keep workers protected from discrimination and unlawful termination from whistleblowing.
The OSHA Act and its subsequent workplace health and safety guidelines place great responsibility on employers. Some of these responsibilities include:
• Provide a workplace free from serious recognized hazards and comply with standards, rules and regulations.
• Make sure the workplace conforms to applicable OSHA standards.
• Keep equipment properly maintained and make sure employees use safe tools and equipment.
• Use color codes, posters, labels or signs to warn employees of potential hazards.
• Establish or update operating procedures and communicate them to employees.
• Provide medical examinations and training when required.
• Prominently post the OSHA poster stating employee rights and responsibilities.
• Keep records of work-related injuries and illnesses.
• Post OSHA citations at or near work areas.
