Every single industry is required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to provide a safe workplace for all employees. Part of this requirement is to have a written safety program and manual. OSHA has been known to fine business $7,000 or more for not providing this requirement. Putting a safety manual together can be a time intensive and expensive task. Consultants can be hired to design a safety program for you, but can cost thousands of dollars.
What should be included in your safety manual?
Your safety manual needs to include information addressing the hazards a worker would encounter on the job, how accidents are to be recorded and reported, safety checklists, and more.
Putting all this together doesn’t need to be such a daunting task.
