Create a Safety Plan

Key Points

  • A written safety plan is a workplace's one stop shop for all the documentation and recordkeeping components of workplace safety.
  • The safety plan should go further than a safety program, because it should include a written copy of the overall safety program, the training program and any policies related to worker safety, but should also be the center of documentation for workplace safety materials- such as records of injuries.
  • While federal OSHA does not require a safety plan, some states do. For this reason, it is important for employers to know their state(s) requirements.
