OSHA Hazard Awareness Advisor

Welcome to the OSHA Hazard Awareness Advisor

The OSHA Hazard Awareness Advisor is designed to help general industry employers and workers identify possible safety and health hazards in their workplace, and to direct users to OSHA standards addressing those hazards. It should be particularly helpful to small employers without the means to hire safety and health professionals to evaluate their workplace.

Employers of workers engaged in construction, agriculture and maritime industries are covered by other OSHA regulations. While users in those industries might benefit from using the Advisor, it does not directly address conditions in those industries nor does it identify OSHA regulations covering those industries.

The Department of Labor developed the elaws Advisors to help employees and employers understand their rights and responsibilities under numerous Federal employment laws. Each Advisor includes links to more detailed information that may be useful to the user, such as links to regulatory text, publications and organizations.
