Written Safety Policies and Procedures

 requires a written safety plan for specific workplace activities and chemicals. Written safety & health plans are an important part of a company’s safety & health program. Not only does OSHA require companies to have written programs, but oftentimes contractors require safety & health programs to be submitted as part of the pre-qualification process.

Different activities or safety programs that require written OSHA safety plans include:

  • Hazard Communication (29 CFR 1910.1200(e))—Failure to have a written chemical worker right-to-know plan is a very frequently cited OSHA violation
  • Emergency Action Plan and Fire Prevention Plan (29 CFR 1910.38 and 29 CFR 1910.39)
  • Bloodborne Pathogens Exposure Control Plan (29 CFR 1910.1030(c)) at facilities that anticipate employee exposure to blood
  • HAZWOPER Safety and Health Plan (29 CFR 1910.120(b))
  • Respiratory protection, permit-required confined spaces, lockout/tagout, process safety management, construction fall protection, and construction excavations
