Safety & Health Manual

‚ÄčThe Safety & Health Manual is a product of the Alliance between OSHA and SWR Institute. 

The Safety and Health Manual has been developed by SWR Institute as an outreach effort in order to help employers understand how to develop a written Safety and Health Program as recommended by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Each company is different; this program must be tailored to meet your specific needs, by adding or deleting parts of this guide. Determine your needs based on the hazards or potential hazards of your job site.

The Safety & Health Manual has 11 sections, which include: a program guide, confined space entry, fall protection, hazard communication, lead in construction, a record keeping standard, personal protective equipment, respiratory protection control program, scaffold standard, silica exposure program and a site specific safety plan. Section 11 has a “Site Specific Safety Plan” that can be customized to your specific scopes of work and job site.
