Safety in the workplace is scrutinized today like never before. Not only can a workplace incident cause untold financial hardships as well as injuries to workers, but it can also ruin the reputation of a business. The OSHA guidelines have gotten more complex over time, so it's important to know exactly what is expected in each facet of your business in order to keep people as safe as physically possible.
Manager Safety Expectations
When OSHA is involved, managers are involved. It is the responsibilities of most managers to handle some of the safety issues in the area they are managing. This may require delegating most of the safety duties, but it's still necessary for managers to understand the guidelines and to make sure that each requirement is carried out. When OSHA conducts an inspection or arrives because of a complaint, anything that a manager says to them can be used in the case.
