    USE the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) Hazard Awareness Ad-visor

    This Ad visor helps general industry employers and workers identify possible safety and health hazards in their workplace and directs them to OSHA standards addressing those hazards. It should be particularly helpful to small employers without the means to hire safety and health professionals to evaluate their workplace.

    Employers of workers engaged in construction, agriculture and maritime industries are covered by other OSHA regulations. While users in those industries might benefit from using the Adviser, it does not directly address conditions in those industries nor does it identify OSHA regulations covering those industries.

    The OSHA Hazard Awareness Advisor is one of a series of elaws (Employment Laws Assistance for Workers and Small Businesses) Advisers developed by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) to help employers and employees understand their rights and responsibilities under federal employment laws.
