This checklist of OSHA Requirements for Employers is NOT all-inclusive. You should add to them or skip parts that are not applicable to your company.  Carefully consider each item, and refer to OSHA requirements and federal labor laws for employers for complete and specific guidelines that may apply to your work environment. This list is typical for general industry, not construction or maritime.
