So if you have no clue, or need a guide on what OSHA actually wants, they have these nifty tools that can help.  These cover General Industry, Construction, and Healthcare.  Being OSHA compliant is not the ‘end all’ (remember, OSHA is the minimum you should do), but it is a good place to start.

OSHA’s Field Manuals – Download Free, Here!

OSHA publishes their field manuals, plus items called ‘CPL’s.’  CPL (short for ‘compliance’) documents are the actual guidelines that OSHA uses when performing inspections.  No, really.

Some of these are very long and involved, but if you want to know what OSHA will look for on your job, look here.  I have no posted all of them, but here is a sample.  To get the rest, go to http://www.osha.gov and do a search for “CPL.”
