Every workplace in America must comply with OSHA occupational safety and health standards for protection from workplace hazards — or face the possibility of large fines and legal actions. Yet many employers do not have formal safety programs or staff dedicated to develop and run them.
"The most complete and straight-forward introduction to OSHA and the 58 steps in the SHARP certification process... including the necessary materials and documents on CD to create a customized workplace and training manual and a SHARP Action Plan."

on the 2012 Edition Many assume formal safety programs are too expensive and time-consuming to implement. Instead, they simply rely on 'luck' to avoid risks, injuries and fines. Making sense of OSHA regulations can be difficult, and wading through hundreds of web pages and forms can be overwhelming. Invaluable resources, programs, and even free services can be missed simply because employers don't know how to find and access them.
Our National Handbook on Occupational Safety & Health reviews your responsibilities as an employer, reviewing what you must do to achieve OSHA compliance in a step-by-step approach. It contains key content compiled from U.S. government and other public sources, organized, outlined and explained, and includes template documents for companies to create their own Safety Manual, Training Manual, and SHARP Action Plan.
A safe and healthy workplace not only protects workers from injury and illness, it can also lower injury and illness costs, reduce absenteeism and turnover, increase productivity and quality, and raise employee morale. In short, it's an asset to the community, operates more efficiently and supports a healthy bottom line.
Take advantage of this clear and practical guide to meet standards, avoid costly fines, and achieve important savings in workers' compensation and liability insurance premiums.
