The basic elements include management leadership, employee participation, hazard identification and assessment, hazard prevention and control, education and training, program evaluation and improvement, and coordination for multi-employer worksites.
A safety plan is a written document recognizing all the hazards present on the job and how to control them. It also considers what steps employees should take in the event of an emergency.
The concept of “best practice” or “recommended practice” in safety refers to the most effective ways to maintain employee safety and health. Of course, the ultimate goal of the safety and health program is to prevent employees from getting injured, sick, or killed on the job. OSHA compiled seven categories of recommended practices for companies writing a safety and health program. Each practice aims to mitigate a hazard before it hurts anyone.
OSHA does not require that employers create a thorough safety and health program; however, safety and health programs will help companies to become compliant with OSHA standards. In fact, safety and health programs have been proven to reduce injury and illness on the job and reduce costs.
Safety and health programs should be written so they can be easily accessed by employees at every level of a company. We recommend posting these written documents in the company office and making them accessible on the jobsite.
