Does anyone know the OSHA requirements for farmers? I'm not trying do the bare minimum, I just want to know:
What documentation is required?
Are bi-weekly or monthly safety meetings with employees required?
What training or how much is required (ie can it be written or verbal training)?
Does an employee need to sign off on it or do we just keep a notebook that on X date we told X employee how to do something?
How often does it need to be done?
Is there a walk-through checklist available for a farm site or shop?
What personal protective equipment is necessary and where does it need to be kept? (ie in every pickup, in a shop, w/in certain distance of work location?
We keep our shop relatively clean; however we've had a couple people through who are involved in manufacturing facilities and they could easily see things that would be considered violations in their indusstry; however I don't know where to start. Sometimes what a OSHA might require I wouldn't even give a thought about. We keep getting calls from a company selling a safety services product/subscription. We took out a one-time subscription. They used misleading sales tactics/pricing. They just keep calling about a renewal. That's what prompted the thoughts regarding OSHA compliance.
