The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is asking as many as 19,000 businesses nationwide to participate in its Baseline Survey of Safety and Health Practices to help the agency better shape future rules, compliance programs, and outreach efforts.

The voluntary survey will be sent to companies of all sizes and across all industries. Results will be tabulated by the Eastern Research Group.

A cover letter provides a unique password to each recipient to log in and take the survey online.

The questions to be asked concern subjects such as the types of workplace hazards encountered, whether safety training is offered, whether any toxic monitoring is done or needs to be done, and whether the company has adopted a safety and health management program.

Personnel Concepts' OSHA Compliance Manager Subscription will provide businesses of all sizes with the resources to develop safety programs and stay in full compliance.
