Developing and implementing clear and concise safety procedures is the best way to ensure that employees safely perform their assigned tasks, reduce workplace injuries and illnesses, and meet OSHA regulatory requirements.

It is essential to ensure supervisors and employees clearly understand the expectations for safe job performance. Setting safety expectations helps hold supervisors and employees accountable for their actions. In addition, meeting OSHA regulatory guidelines helps to ensure a good safety culture at your facility is taking root.

This webinar will cover the basics of how to take potentially cumbersome written OSHA compliance policies and turn them into an employee user-friendly format. This will help with employee buy-in and engagement with safety and help to ensure OSHA compliance is maintained. Creating Job Safety Analysis/Job Hazard Analysis (JSA/JHA) can help supplement complicated OSHA written safety procedures.
