As an employer, or safety officer within your workplace, employees must be informed of how the OSHA regulations affect them. This can be achieved by meeting separately with each department, conducting a seminar or an afternoon meeting.
Not only should employees be told of the rules set by OSHA for their workplace, they should be encouraged to follow OSHA regulations, because in doing so, a safer work environment is created.
It is important that employees know that OSHA regulations are not a form of punishment, or some tedious rules to follow, but rather they have been established to keep them - and everyone around them - safe.
