“OSHA Compliance 101” For Texas Manufacturers
Many business owners and executives feel overwhelmed by OSHA regulations, and complain that they and their staff are just too busy and lack the time, resources and expertise to properly manage everything. That may be true, but OSHA doesn’t care nor does it give “passes,” even to small companies. This dictum from OSHA’s website says it all:
All Employers Are Required by Federal Law to
“Provide a Safe and Healthy Workplace.”
As you can see, this requirement is extremely vague, broad and therefore puts an enormous burden on American employers. That’s why it’s so critical to take the time to understand their OSHA regulations, how they apply to your business, and take steps to ensure that your company is in compliance. By doing so, you’ll benefit by protecting your employees from work related harm (see above), while at the same time protecting your business from potentially devastating regulatory fines and penalties, which in extreme cases can include criminal liability. Another significant benefit includes protecting your company’s reputation. Businesses who get in trouble with OSHA often suffer significant public embarrassment and PR disasters when they issue press releases about violating companies that are distributed to local newspapers, trade journals and on line for the local community, competitors, and worst of all, your customers to read.
We have created a guide that will get you well on your way towards achieving these objectives and is a must-read for any company who doesn’t have a full time and experienced health and safety compliance manager, or for companies who are just getting acquainted with their OSHA regulatory obligations. By the time you’ve finished reading this document, you’ll have gained a much better understanding of what OSHA demands of your company and can then begin to use the knowledge gained to assess your company’s current OSHA compliance condition, determine what needs to be fixed, and hopefully begin work on making improvements.
