Deciphering OSHA regulations can be a daunting task, especially for smaller businesses that don't have the human resources to dedicate to compliance questions. Fortunately, OSHA has a number of programs in place designed to provide assistance with a broad range of compliance issues. If you are in doubt about OSHA compliance, or need help with a specific issue, go to the OSHA website at www.osha.gov. From this site you can access resources to help you prevent occupational injuries and illnesses, comply with the Occupational Safety and Health Act, and learn about OSHA's cooperative programs.
