Businesses in the U.S. are obligated to comply with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) required standards for workplace safety. There are a multitude of OSHA standards (regulations) but not every business is subject to every standard. Companies in many industries, due to the nature of their work, are only subject to OSHA’s general industry standards. Businesses in certain sectors (construction, agriculture, maritime) must comply with additional standards because of the extra hazards they face in their day-to-day operations.
The standards for industries that commonly encounter hazards such dangerous chemicals, high voltage, heavy equipment, excessive noise, and the like, are more rigorous. In order to ensure OSHA compliance, companies must create safety policies and procedures that address each facility and its specific hazards. Workplace safety policy details what a company will do to maintain safety in the presence of a hazard. EHS procedures describe the specific steps that must be followed to carry out the various safety policies.
