As a follow-up to our New Year safety advice from the last spotlight, there is already evidence that the new Administration is taking a more active role in Occupation Health and Safety. With new leadership at OSHA, there is already a new rule to update the Hazard Communication Standard, as well as updates to COVID-19 guidance for workplaces. We are encouraging all of our clients to review their OSHA Compliance, which should include all your written programs, sub-elements under those programs, and facility. When is the last time you updated your written Health and Safety programs? When was the last time you checked that all training is up to date and documented? When was the last time you completed all the requirements for LO/TO, Forklift, HazCom? When is the last time you completed a safety walk-through of your facility, with corrective action taken? Spooners Safety professionals are available to conduct these program reviews for you, including facility compliance via Mock OSHA inspections.
