You Ask...We Answer
Is Allied Safety Group, LLC affiliated with OSHA?
No. Allied Safety Group is a private, veteran owned firm. However, we do interact with OSHA in several ways, including assisting our clients with inspections and participating in OSHA training programs.
Can my company get fined even if we only have one employee?
Yes. Although employers with 10 or fewer employees are exempt from such requirements as record keeping and planned inspections, an employer with just one employee must still comply with the applicable OSHA standards. To learn more about which standards apply to your company’s operations please contact us.
My company has a high turn-over rate. Am I required to train new employees?
Yes, it is recommended that new hires are trained before starting work. OSHA requires employers to train an employee to recognize any hazard they may encounter in the workplace. Allied Safety Group offers several tools including online new hire training to make meeting this requirement efficient and easy.
I’m a small employer. Am I required to maintain an occupational safety and health program?
Yes, even employers with as few as one employee must develop, implement, and maintain an occupational safety and health plan to protect their employees. Several factors determine whether a safety and health plan must be written or can be conveyed verbally. Please contact us to discuss your company’s options.
