                                Compliance Checklist

Introduction

This checklist, although comprehensive, is not intended to cover all regulatory situations
that might be in evidence in any specific department or institution. The purpose of this
checklist is to provide "food for thought" for supervisors and managers as they consider
workplace hazards, and whether all that is necessary is being done to meet OSHA, EPA,
NFPA, and etc. minimum requirements.

The checklist should be considered a tool, which will assist managers and supervisors in
the identification of hazards with which workers might be confronted. The number of
              s should serve as an indication of how safety conscious the department is,

Due to the uniqueness of each department, no specific department or topic is completely
covered.
