This Program will take you beyond what the OSHA regulations are and will provide you with information on how to comply with them, implement them, and will provide relevant information based on OSHA’s own interpretations of these regulations. Depending on your industry type, the primary requirements for employers can be found in 29 CFR 1904, 1910 – General Industry; 1915, 1917, 1918 – Maritime and 1926 – Construction.
The following is your Program Roadmap:
- Getting Started with OSHA Compliance – determining which specific OSHA regulations you must comply with. Even if you know you are covered by OSHA’s “General Industry” regulations, you still have to narrow down the focus to those that are specifically applicable to your operations. Some will apply, some will not.
- Reviewing OSHA’s list of most frequently cited standards, using prior inspection history, as well as injury and illness data in determining areas on which to focus.
- Determining which written plans you must have. Written plans outline how the company will carry out various functions of a program.
- Determining training requirements. OSHA requirements vary in their specificity with regard to training. Some require refresher training, some do not. Some require documentation, some do not. Each employer should review the individual training requirements to determine those that apply.
- Determining inspection requirements. Regular inspection of machinery and equipment is critical, though the degree to which OSHA addresses inspections in the regulations vary. In some cases, a visual inspection pre-use is required, in others a more thorough inspection may be required.
- How to survey workers on safety and compliance needs. Workers can provide valuable input on hazardous conditions and potential controls.
- How to set-up an incident investigation protocol with a focus on root-cause analysis.
- How to implement a safety committee with representation from all areas of the operations.
- Documenting injuries and illnesses (unless you are exempt) on OSHA recordkeeping forms.
