Comply with the Broad Scope of OSHA Regulations
The Occupational Health and Safety Administration, or OSHA, offers a set of regulations to ensure private sector and federal employers maintain a safe working environment. The General Duty provision of the original OSH Act (1971) puts it simply: “The employer shall furnish…a place of employment which [is] free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to [the] employees.”
Compliance with the wide scope of OSHA regulations – from injury reporting systems to whistleblower protections, from limits to beryllium exposure to respirator specs – is far more complex. Safety regulations are updated at a rapid pace, can be very ambiguous, and may result in steeps fines for non-compliance. Because OSHA regulations are so broad, many companies have begun to view OSHA regulations and the many risks associated with workplace safety through the same lens as other business risks. By systematically managing policies and procedures, and mapping them to specific controls, compliance and risk professionals can quickly understand and respond to these risks.
