The word “compliance” normally evokes thoughts of overwhelming, complicated and constantly changing regulations with the fear of penalties and regulatory inspections. In a society that is becoming more environmentally-focused by the minute, environmental, health and safety (EH&S) compliance is becoming a high priority for every business. While the benefits of achieving and maintaining compliance from a regulatory standpoint are important, workplace compliance also is vital for other reasons. Organizations should realize that safe, healthy and environmentally-friendly workplaces are more efficient, productive and cost effective. These types of positive workplaces also increase the retention rate of an organization’s employees.
Each company has its own set of problems, issues, and challenges when confronted with meeting local, state and federal regulations. These EHS issues are ever changing with regulatory requirements becoming progressively more stringent. The management of any facility requires a watchful eye to ensure regulations and procedures are followed and the intent of management is met. By conducting audits, companies can be assured that prescribed environmental and safety procedures are properly performed. It is an approach that makes good business sense. The lack of proper oversight can adversely impact not only local communities but also the health and well-being of employees. Regulatory fines, increased costs, a poor reputation, and low employee morale result.
The Occupational Health and Safety Act charges you with the obligation to instruct, inform and supervise workers to protect their health and safety. The following are just some of the duties specified by the Act:
- All equipment, materials and protective devices prescribed by the act must be maintained in good order.
- Ensure that the above are used in accordance with the regulations.
- Ensure that all hazardous materials in the workplace are identified, as defined by OSHA.
- Ensure that a worker complies with the Act and regulations.
- Ensure that any equipment, protective devices or clothing required for safe performance of the job is used or worn by the worker.
- Advise a worker of any potential or actual health or safety dangers known by the supervisor.
- Take every precaution reasonable in the circumstances for the protection of the workers.
