Pennsylvania Workplace Safety Manual

Sixth Edition - ISBN: 978-0-9818084-5-1


A comprehensive, step-by-step guide on evaluating, setting up and managing your in-house safety program, the Pennsylvania Chamber's Workplace Safety Manual sixth edition is completely revised and updated.


The Workplace Safety Manual is an outstanding resource on general safety for all companies, providing detailed descriptions and compliance requirements for each major safety area, while reducing the amount of work and time needed to administer your company's safety program:

  • Safety Committees-superb reference on everything you need to know about administering workplace safety committees, including who should sit on the committee, meeting agenda requirements, the work plan as required by the WC Bureau, necessary training, safety awareness and incentive programs
  • Self-Inspection Checklist is an updated comprehensive list provided by OSHA (and used by OSHA inspectors) that helps identify and evaluate hazards, and includes paperwork, signage and training requirements for each critical area
  • Combines Workers' Comp and OSHA at the time of an accident-removes confusion when the laws overlap, or when you may be in compliance with one but missing something critical with the other
  • Explains mandatory training requirements
  • Safety policy statements, emergency action plans and an industrial hygiene checklist to evaluate your safety program's effectiveness
  • Reduce your Workers' Comp insurance premium by up to 5 percent each year if you have an active safety committee that follows the WC Bureau's guidelines
