Safety Sampling

What Does Safety Sampling Mean?

Safety sampling is a technique performed in a workplace or hazardous area that is used to measure potential for accidents. This is done using a list of standards or regulations from a federal agency including The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), or The American National Standards Institute (ANSI), and any unacceptable deviations from those standards or regulations.

Safeopedia Explains Safety Sampling

Safety sampling is performed by routine checks or inspections. It is a repeatable process designed to ensure compliance to federal standards over a long term basis and to keep safety levels high consistently. Employers should work with a qualified safety coordinator who has experience in creating, reviewing and maintaining standard operating procedures and their documentation, as well as perform safety inspections and help staff to comply with federal standards through staff training procedures.
