OSHA Requirements for Small Business

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is part of the US Department of Labor. It was created “to assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance.” [OSHA Website]

OSHA has more than 2000 inspectors who conduct business inspections without notice. Their goal is to “assure compliance with OSHA requirements and help employers and workers reduce on-the-job hazards and prevent injuries, illnesses, and deaths in the workplace.” [OSHA Fact Sheet]
