The safety library is designed to provide a resource for you to use in developing, maintaining and improving your company safety programs.
There are 4 areas you should cover for every safety program: management, training, recordkeeping and awareness.

1. Management - Create a Safety Manual

To determine what safety programs you need, just look around your workplace. What type of jobs do employees do and, most importantly, what hazards exist for each job. As an example, if employees use power tools, you need a tool safety program, if they use chemicals, you need a Hazard Communication program, if they use welding equipment, you need a Hot Work program... this process will identify hazards you need to cover.

2. Safety Training - Gather training material

For each of your safety programs, you need training, material to educate not only your employees, but also managers and supervisors. Use the TRAINING section of the library and download the training material, such as PowerPoint files, Handouts, Safety Videos, Safety Supervisor & Management Briefs, etc ... use what works for you...edit to suit your specific needs.

3. Recordkeeping - Document what you do

Recordkeeping extends far beyond your OSHA 300 Log. For every one of your safety programs you need to document that you are doing what your Safety Manual says you do. Document all audits, inspections, safety meetings, and training. For every program you should conduct an annual audit to ensure your programs are effective. Periodic inspections of the workplace is essential to ensure material conditions and operations are safe. Use the Forms & Documents section of the safety library to select supporting documentation for each safety program.

4. Awareness - Keep your Safety Programs front & center

Once you have created your Safety Manual, Training Program and Records Program, you will benefit by keeping safety on the minds of employees, supervisors and management. The Safety Library has several resource areas to help you. Check out the Safety Training and References area to help you with this.
