Individual laws within OSHA’s 1910 General Industry and 1926 Construction regulations require employers to have various programs, policies and standard operating procedures (SOP’s) in writing by subject. For example, the respiratory protection law requires a written program. The law is very specific about what must be covered (medical evaluations, fit testing, how you arrived at which respirator protects the user from the hazards, how to store it, clean it and so on).
The same is true for the occupational noise exposure law. Same for hazard communication which is the law requiring safety data sheets (SDS), among other things. Whereas the control of hazardous energy (lockout/tagout) law requires step-by-step written lockout procedures.
Here are some other individual OSHA laws requiring a written program:
- Emergency action plan
- Process safety management of highly hazardous chemicals
- Hazardous waste operations and emergency response (HAZWOPER)
- Permit required confined spaces
- Access to employee exposure and medical records
Even OSHA’s new emergency temporary standard on COVID-19 prevention and their guidance document require a written program. Learn more about OSHA’s new requirements and read our guide.
