This information has been developed by an OSHA Compliance
Assistance Specialist and is intended to assist employers, workers,
and others as they strive to improve workplace health and safety.
While we attempt to thoroughly address specific topics [or
hazards], it is not possible to include discussion of everything
necessary to ensure a healthy and safe working environment in a
presentation of this nature. Thus, this information must be
understood as a tool for addressing workplace hazards, rather than
an exhaustive statement of an employer’s legal obligations, which
are defined by statute, regulations, and standards. Likewise, to the
extent that this information references practices or procedures that
may enhance health or safety, but which are not required by a
statute, regulation, or standard, it cannot, and does not, create
additional legal obligations. Finally, over time, OSHA may
modify rules and interpretations in light of new technology,
information, or circumstances; to keep apprised of such
developments, or to review information on a wide range of
occupational safety and health topics, you can visit OSHA’s
website at www.osha.gov.
