Material includes advice to improve coordination on multiple-employer worksites

Posted January 14, 2016

Public comments on OSHA's updated Safety and Health Program Management Guidelines will be accepted until February 15, 2016. The revision of the voluntary guidelines first published in 1989 includes key principles such as helping to find and fix hazards before they cause injury or illness, and ensuring that workers have a voice in safety and health.

According to OSHA, the new material should be particularly beneficial to small- and medium-sized businesses and address ways in which multiple employers at the same worksite can coordinate efforts to make sure all workers are protected equally.
