OSHA Upgrades its Small Business Assistance Web Site

OSHA has unveiled an enhanced Office of Small Business Assistance (OSBA) Web site. The site includes an improved "Safety Pays" eTool and a new Spanish language safety link. "OSHA continues to be at the forefront in developing and making resources and tools available to help employers provide a safe and healthful work environment," said Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA Edwin G. Foulke Jr. "The ‘Safety Pays' eTool and the Spanish language safety link are examples of our commitment to better serve the needs of the small business community."

The /dcsp/smallbusiness/index.html Web site has been redesigned to highlight categorical pages, or tabs, for easier navigation and data access. The new format showcases focal points, new products, and links. The site provides a wide variety of safety and health tools, products, and information for small businesses. The OSBA  Web site features an updated "Safety Pays" eTool to help employers estimate the costs of occupational injuries and illnesses and the estimated impact on a company's profitability. This Web-based application allows businesses to identify direct and indirect costs of injuries and calculate the sales needed to make up for these losses. Advantages of the "Safety Pays" tool include no downloading; access to updated loss-injury figures; automatic results after entering data in the appropriate fields; and the option to create and print additional forms online.

A new addition to the site, the Spanish link contains useful Spanish-language compliance assistance resources and tools developed by OSHA's State Consultation programs. The page provides small businesses with access to Spanish-language safety cards, booklets, and posters. Visitors may access this link from the Small Business Assistance Web page.
