What do I need for OSHA safety compliance?

OSHA safety compliance is essential for any business, non-profit, or ministry.  Regulations vary widely, depending on your industry, location, and size, but there are some essentials that all should consider:
1. Safety signs, labels, and tags
2. Safety supplies
3. Safety posters
4. Safety reporting and manuals

1. Safety signage:  Every organization needs basics like Exit signs and  No Parking signs.  You also may need safety labels or safety tags for equipment, machines, or valves.  See Seton for a full assortment of your needed safety signage-

or see Emedco for your safety signs:

2. Safety Supplies:  Every organization needs basic safety supplies, like Wet Floor Signs, Fire Extinguishers, and Spill Kits.  If you deal with any hazardous materials, chemicals, or pesticides, consider a Hazardous Materials Kits. See C&H for a thorough assortment of safety supplies and storage kits-

3. Safety Posters:  Many industries are also required to post certain OSHA safety posters where all their employees can view them.  See Personnel Concepts for any required safety posters-

4. Safety reporting and manuals: In addition to all safety signs and labels, may organizations are required to provide regular safety reporting.  See previous posting on:

Safety manuals are another requirement in some states (like CA), depending on your industry.  Please see your insurance provider for guidance on what is required for your organization.
Finally, a good employee handbook with a basic safety policy is recommended for any organization, whether business, non-profit or ministry:
