Understanding OSHA's many standards and broad regulations can sometimes make OSHA compliance a tough issue to tackle. On top of that, developing proper safety plans, efficiently training employees, and effectively monitoring work environments to make sure that OSHA regulations are being followed are all monumental tasks by themselves. However here are methods of insuring that your safety measures pass OSHA's tests, and that your employees are fully informed and knowledgeable of safe workplace practices.

The majority of commercially available safety equipment has been subject to OSHA's approval. Products that are fully approved for use and OSHA compliance are marked as such. In areas of safety where OSHA defers to ANSI or NIOSH recommendations, approved products have been marked appropriately. Stocking your workplace with OSHA-approved tools, PPE, and other safety equipment can help insure that your workplace is OSHA compliant.

At local and regional offices, OSHA staff is on hand to answer any questions that you might have regarding your facilities. Booklets, pamphlets, and posters are available to inform you of OSHA policies. OSHA staff can also refer you to a trained and certified Occupations Health and Safety Specialist or Technician to help you make sure that your workplace is operating in 100% OSHA compliance.

Teaching OSHA Compliance

Passing along the OSHTs knowledge to a full staff is made a little easier with the help of teaching aids such as training videos and handy reference material. Training videos can show real-life practical examples of safe and unsafe behavior, as well as examples of behavior both within and outside of OSHA compliance. Legible, eye-catching reference material can provide quick answers to frequently asked questions, as well as serve as a reminder of other safe work practices.
