What Does Compliance Mean?

Compliance refers to the following of all legal requirements relating to a specific operation. When it comes to workplace safety, OSHA regulations are extensive and far reaching. Many OSHA standards include specific training and health safety requirements. These are designed to ensure that workers have knowledge and skills to do their work properly. Incorporating workplace safety training into the working environment will result in fewer accidents, injuries and increased workplace morale.

Safeopedia Explains Compliance

On order to comply with the standards imposed by OSHA regarding compliance, all employers are required to provide their employees with full and effective information, along all necessary training, related to all hazardous chemicals in the work place. Any time that a new hazardous chemical is introduced to the workplace, employees must be informed and trained in its proper and safe use. All chemicals must be clearly labeled at all times and have the appropriate data sheet available.
