OSHA Compliance Assistance Web Page Updated
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recently announced updates to its Compliance Assistance Web page.
The page provides a public gateway to OSHA resources that can help home builders and other employers meet their responsibility to provide their workers with a safe and healthful workplace.
Among the new features:
- A Hispanic Outreach module has been added to the Compliance Assistance Quick Start to help English-speaking or bilingual employers identify Spanish-language outreach resources for Spanish-speaking workers. Quick Start introduces employers and employees, especially those at new or small businesses, to the compliance assistance resources that are available on OSHA’s Web site.
- The Highlights box on the Compliance Assistance page now features New Compliance Assistance Products. This feature lists new or updated fact sheets, publications, Safety and Health Information Bulletins, Web pages and other recently issued OSHA compliance assistance products.
- A new Hispanic outreach success story features efforts by Rinker Materials Corporation to redesin its training materials to communicate more visually with Spanish-speaking employees.
- A new Regional Showcase story highlights efforts by OSHA’s Region III to reach out to small businesses in northwestern Pennsylvania.
- At the request of the Department of Labor, the Highlights box also includes a link to the department’s Web Site Customer Satisfaction Survey to provide feedback on the effectiveness of the Compliance Assistance page.
