Falls, spills, heavy metals, malfunctioning equipment, workers’ compensation insurance—the world of environmental health and safety can be a scary place. For too many employers, it’s also an unfamiliar place. With EHS information buried on government websites or locked behind paywalls, countless companies make dangerous (and costly) mistakes without realizing it. It’s only when an incident happens that HR and compliance personnel start combing through pages of Occupational Safety and Health Administration PDFs.
