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.

Workplace Safety Policy Development

When you hire Safety First Group to help you develop safety procedures and policies, you will receive a solution that is completely customized to your workplace.  We will work with you to identify each hazard at your location, determine the appropriate workplace safety policy to address it, and then work through and document all the appropriate procedures to safeguard your facility against an incident.

Many of your workplace safety rules will likely involve industrial hygiene (IH) policies and procedures designed to prevent heat illness, respiratory injury, or hearing loss.  Our EHS policy consultants are well versed in industrial hygiene and will help you create IH safety protocols and PPE requirements that meet or exceed OSHA standards.

Process Safety may also be another very important part of your business’ safety protocol.  Managing a facility with hazardous chemicals is a very serious responsibility. Our team understands this, and we will create safety policies and procedures that address all 14 elements of process safety, satisfying or topping OSHA’s PSM standards.
