Occupational Health & Safety Compliance

Occupational safety and health in the United States

Occupational safety and health compliance at the basic level means complying with occupational safety and health laws and regulations. Safety and health hazards can be found in every work environment, although many industries have significantly higher risks.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) sets national standards for occupational safety and health. States may choose to enforce OSHA’s regulations and may set even safer standards.

Why is it important to maintain safety and health compliance?

Complying with OSHA laws and standards protects your employees, reduces workers compensation claims, improves your corporate image, and maintains employee safety and morale. Complying with OSHA regulations is just a baseline, however, and additional safety and health procedures and management systems can help reduce workplace injuries and illnesses even further.

OSHA’s regulations are not always current with modern data, so implementing stricter internal safety and health standards can provide more effective employee protection. OSHA regulations and voluntary standards are numerous and require recordkeeping and training, but using occupational safety and health software can keep track of all your requirements.

To get a fresh perspective on your operations and associated risks, consider using health and safety consultants Health & Safety Compliance software who can supplement the good work that your team is already performing.
