The Occupational health and safety awareness training provides a basic understanding of the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA), and does not replace any sector specific, hazard specific, or competency specific training.
The purpose of this safety manual is to establish standards for an industry-specific safety program for establishments covered under the following Standard Industry Classification (SIC code): 5411. This safety program has been developed by the Florida Division of Safety with voluntary input from Florida employers, workers' compensation insurance carriers, labor organizations, trade associations, and other industry leaders.
This manual is intended to serve as the basis for an employer integrated safety and health management program. Implementation of this safety program satisfies the requirements of the Division of Safety. The essential elements of this program include: top management's commitment and involvement; the establishment and operation of safety committees; provisions for safety and health training; first aid procedures; accident investigations; recordkeeping of injuries; and workplace safety rules, policies, and procedures.
