CAL/OSHA WRITTEN OSHA PLANS

An OSHA Safety Plan, or written OSHA compliance program, is a written document that describes the process for identifying the physical and health hazards that could harm workers. It contains procedures to prevent accidents, and steps to take when accidents occur. The written plan is your blueprint for keeping workers safe. Many organizations compile their activity-specific safety plans into a single safety manual.
 
OSHA Mandatory Written Plans
 
OSHA’s many safety rules, there are 18 for general industry workplaces that require written plans or procedures and 10 written construction safety plan requirements for the construction industry. There are also requirements for written safety procedures for 16 hazardous substances listed under Subpart Z of the general industry rules for Toxic and Hazardous Substances, such as asbestos and vinyl chloride.

Safety Programs that require written OSHA safety plans include:
 
•  IIPP (Injury & Illness Prevention Program – CCR-Title 8 (CA) 3203
•  Hazard Communication (29 CFR 1910.1200)
•  Emergency Action Plan and Fire Prevention Plan (29 CFR 1910.38 and 29 CFR 1910.39)
•  Bloodborne Pathogens Exposure Control Plan (29 CFR 1910.1030) at facilities that
    anticipate employee exposure to blood
•  HAZWOPER Safety and Health Plan (29 CFR 1910.120(b))
•  Respiratory protection, permit-required confined spaces, lockout/tagout, process safety management,
    construction fall protection, and construction excavations
 


IIPP (Injury & illness Prevention Program
)

California Code of Regulations, Title 8, Section 3203 state that a workplace must devise and implement an Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) for all employees within the organization. Failure to do this can result in severe fines and penalties, as well as risk the safety and lives of your employees. The objectives of your IIPP are to:

Create, maintain and reinforce a safe environment to protect the health and safety of employees and visitors

Demonstrate management commitment and
concern for employee safety

Maintain compliance with health and safety codes

Improve efficiency by reducing lost work time
due to illness and injuries

Reduce workers' compensation claims and costs

Develop and implement company safety policies 


 
Hazard Communication Standard (Hazcom)
 
Failure to have a written chemical worker right-to-know plan remains in the top 10 most cited OSHA violation each year.
The Hazard Communication Standard sets forth guidelines and requirements in six areas:
 

Chemical Labeling
29 CFR 1910.1200

Requires that all chemicals in the workplace be labeled. The information which must be present includes the name of the chemical and warnings about any hazards the material may present. This requirement may be implemented in a variety of ways. Two such systems are the NFPA Hazard Identification System and the Hazardous Materials Identification Guide 

Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS)
29 CFR 1910.1200

An MSDS is a document that gives detailed information about a material, including any hazards associated with the material. MSDSs must be immediately available to employees at locations where hazardous materials are used.  

Hazard Determination
29 CFR 1910.1200

Says that the employer must identify and maintain a list of all hazardous chemicals used in the workplace.

Written Implementation Program
29 CFR 1910.1200 

Mandates that the employer develop a written plan, the Hazard Communication Program, detailing how the requirements of the HCS are implemented by the employer. 

Employee Training
29 CFR 1910.1200 

Requires that the employer provide to the employees training covering handling of hazardous materials, use and interpretation of both MSDSs and hazcom labels, and information about the HCS. 

Trade Secrets
29 CFR 1910.1200 

Sets forth the conditions under which a manufacturer may withhold information about a material, and the conditions under which such information must be divulged to health care providers.
