Take the Mystery Out of OSHA Compliance

The assisted living industry is regulated at the state level, but there are many federal requirements that apply to assisted living providers as employers; OSHA standards are one of the best examples.  Fortunately, OSHA has several resources available on their website www.osha.gov to help you understand OSHA requirements and keep up-to-date on the latest OSHA news.  Here are a few you should check out:

  • OSHA Quick Takes – OSHA’S twice-monthly electronic newsletter
  • OSHA QuickCards – Small, laminated cards that provide safety and health information for employers and employees
  • OSHA Standards – A list of some of OSHA’s most critical standards, including bloodborne pathogens and others

These are just a few examples. Visit www.osha.gov to learn more about OSHA.
