Workplace Safety



While we all know that business can’t survive without our workers, and nobody plans to have accidents that prompt OSHA to visit their facility or be fined -- surprisingly few operations or office managers in small companies have ever investigated OSHA requirements, or taken a simple in-person or online 30-hour OSHA class for General Industry to orient them to the basic requirements for industry. If you don’t have anyone trained at your facility, don’t wait. OSHA will tell you ignorance isn’t an excuse. Regulations include all the following:

  • Walking and working surfaces

  • Exit routes, emergency action plans, & fire prevention

  • Electrical hazards

  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

  • Hazard Communication

  • Permit required confined spaces

  • Welding, Cutting and Brazing

  • Materials handling

  • Machine guarding, and Power Tools

  • Bloodborne Pathogens

  • Managing Safety and Health

  • Hazardous Materials

  • Lockout-tagout

  • Ergonomics & work related injuries
