Small business owners want to ensure their workers go home safe and healthy at the end of the day. However, small businesses tend to experience higher rates of workplace injury and illness than larger businesses. The volume of safety and health information, regulations and guidance can feel overwhelming, and many of the topics can be complex.
With the updated OSHA-NIOSH Small Business Safety and Health Handbook
