Of all the guidelines and regulations, I picked OSHA. It regulates safety at work which is a protection for all parties involved in many different ways - physically, financially, and business-wise for service. Some of the examples of what things this regulation governs is found for us below:
Personal protective equipment. Standards in this part requiring the employer to provide personal protective equipment (PPE), including respirators and other types of PPE, because of hazards to employees impose a separate compliance duty with respect to each employee covered by the requirement. The employer must provide PPE to each employee required to use the PPE, and each failure to provide PPE to an employee may be considered a separate violation.
Training. Standards in this part requiring training on hazards and related matters, such as standards requiring that employees receive training or that the employer train employees, provide training to employees, or institute or implement a training program, impose a separate compliance duty with respect to each employee covered by the requirement. The employer must train each affected employee in the manner required by the standard, and each failure to train an employee may be considered a separate violation.
This regulation affects all involved, especially businesses that come in contact with hazardous matter and materials. Medical and dental, for example, come in contact with bloodborne pathogens that are very hazardous if handled incorrectly. OSHA provides information on how to make sure safety comes first at all times.
Compliance with this regulation is NOT optional. Failure to meet these requirements can result in fines, being fired and lose employment, and in some cases even jail time.
So who is responsible for ensuring compliance with this regulation? The Compliance Officer.
