OSHA and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) have collaborated to issue an updated workplace safety and health handbook for small businesses. The Small Business Safety and Health Handbook (link to handbook) highlights the benefits of implementing an effective safety and health program, provides self-inspection checklists for employers to identify workplace hazards, and reviews workplace safety and health resources for small businesses.
The self-inspection checklists are designed to help general industry employers identify workplace hazards and to ensure workplace safety for their employees. Employers can use the checklists in several ways; including printing the documents, filling them out by hand or entering information in the fillable PDF forms.
