Does Our Company Need To Comply With Other Applicable Industry Standards?
Many companies in a variety of industries work hard to meet Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements. However, such companies may wonder if it is also necessary to comply with other applicable industry standards?
According to Jay Beckel, senior vice president of Client Services at PROtect, it is important for companies to comply with a number of regulatory initiatives beyond OSHA.
OSHA is not operated with the intent of being specialized in each and every industry. Therefore, they rely on consensus standards or other recognized and more specialized standards. They also hold the ability to issue citations under their General Duty Clause where if it is a hazard common in your business that you have or should have known of the risk or hazard you can be held accountable.
“The best thing to do would be to have a thorough hazard analysis at your facility,” said Beckel. “PROtect can complete such an assessment, which will help your company understand and ultimately meet all applicable industry standards.”
