OSHA Compliance

OSHA is not a town in Wisconsin.

No matter whether your organization is a service company, manufacturer, medical facility, school, processing plant, nonprofit, or any other type of workplace, you are required to comply with federal OSHA regulations as well as state and local regulations. Full OSHA compliance is extremely difficult to achieve without  professional assistance; in fact, some OSHA regulations require a trained professional for implementation.

911 Consulting gives you practical solutions for complying with regulations (and covering your posterior) in these crucial areas:

  1. Mandatory Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) Standards. OSHA standards requiring every employer to anticipate and prepare for emergencies:
  2. Conditional OSHA Standards. These may or may not be applicable to your worksite, depending on the presence of any type of hazardous materials.
    • Hazard Communications, OSHA 29 CFR 1910.1200The most cited OSHA violation across the country. If you have MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheets), you must have a Hazard Communication Plan by law.
    • Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER), OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120
  3. Spill Prevention, Control & Countermeasure Plan (SPCC), or “Spill Plan.” If bulk oil* is stored at your facility, you could be subject to this Environmental Protection Agency’s Oil Pollution Prevention Rule; Code of Federal Regulations, Part 112 (40 CFR 112). Even if you are not required by law to have an SPCC, you may still need a spill plan of some kind for hazardous, toxic and caustic materials.*Oil of any kind or in any form, including, but not limited to: petroleum; fuel oil; sludge; oil refuse; oil mixed with wastes other than dredged spoil; fats, oils or greases of animal, fish, or marine mammal origin; vegetable oils, including oil from seeds, nuts, fruits, or kernels; and other oils and greases, including synthetic oils and mineral oils.
