The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) is a division of the United States Department of Labor. OSHA was created in 1971 to administer the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. The act established a nationwide program to protect workers from injury, illness, and death caused by unsafe working conditions. Small businesses are required to comply with OSHA regulations.
Abiding by OSHA laws is not only required, it makes smart business sense. Employees who become ill or are injured due to unsafe working conditions are costly. Reductions in staff morale, decreased productivity, significant costs, and high turnover are often direct results of inadequate attention to the quality of the workplace.
If your company deals with hazardous materials, you are required to provide hazardous materials training to your employees. In fact, failure to make HAZMAT training a requirement in such instances is a violation in and of itself. Without being careful, a company can be slapped with thousands of dollars in fines and penalties from OSHA, DOT and other regulatory bodies and organizations. Simply discussing the safe handling of hazardous materials isn’t enough. To ensure compliance and safety, HAZMAT training is essential. For superior HAZMAT training, SEA, Inc. is the name to trust.
A workplace safety audit takes a snapshot of the safe work practices that employees use. The announcement of a safety audit generally results in some discomfort among management, supervisory staff and even the workforce. While everyone knows that safety equipment and usage rules are in place for work place safety, a realistic appraisal of daily practices shows that workers sometimes cut corners.
At times, the safety precautions may seem too burdensome to seasoned workers who are well-versed with the workings of a machine. Other reasons for occasionally not using all the safety equipment available include efforts to save time and the personal confidence that “just this once” nothing bad will happen. Not surprisingly, when an OSHA safety audit is announced, there is quite a bit of anxiety.
