Health and Safety Plans
Many business owners do not realize that they can be cited by OSHA for not having or following their own Health and Safety Plan (HSP). According to the Occupational Safety and Health Act, 29 CFR 1926, Section 5(a)(1) of the OSH Act, often referred to as the General Duty Clause, requires employers to “furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees”. Section 5(a)(2) requires employers to “comply with occupational safety and health standards promulgated under this Act”.
Your Health and Safety Program should take into account every aspect of your daily operations. Cookie-cutter programs are not only too generic, they are rarely followed because they do not address the specific problems encountered by your employees on a daily basis.

- On-site observation of your operations
- Hazard analysis
- A customized, workable program
- Advice on how to maintain compliance
