OSHA Safety: How Can You Stay Compliant

 

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration was developed as part of the U.S. Department of Labor to oversee workplace safety. Most small business owners don't necessarily consider OSHA requirements essential if they aren't running a manufacturing facility or working around dangerous equipment. 

However, the truth is that accidents can happen in any environment. Here are the best ways to stay compliant with OSHA regulations in your workplace.

  1. State rules and requirements. The first step is to review your state's own OSHA requirements. They may be slightly different from the federal rules. If you do not live in a place with a state established OSHA board you would automatically revert to the federal OSHA requirements.
  2. Workplace hazards. The next most important step is to determine what may already exist in your office that could become hazardous to your employees.  This will largely depend on your specific industry. The OSHA website can walk you through this step.
  3. Create a safety and health program. Using the OSHA guidelines you can establish a safety program within your office to ensure the continued health and safety of your staff members. This may require changes to your policies and handbooks as well as a safety manager to ensure that your company maintains its compliance. 

As a small business owner you may be concerned or even overwhelmed by the necessary steps for OSHA compliance. A PEO can help you establish your policies and enforce them with little effort.
