The Small Business Safety and Health Resource Guide has sections about individual hazards and links to regulations, training materials, and recommendations. NIOSH will update it based on readers' feedback.

NIOSH has posted a new Small Business Safety and Health Resource Guide, which will help small-business managers research regulations, access training materials, and learn more about specific hazards. NIOSH announced it July 23.

"Small businesses play a key role in our economy, yet they face many challenges in ensuring the safety and health of their workforce," said NIOSH Director Dr. John Howard, MD. "This guide serves as a critical resource for small business and as an example of how NIOSH works with our partners to ensure the safety and health of all workers."

The guide links to more than 50 websites produced by commercial, academic, and government organizations. NIOSHj's release said each resource in it was reviewed for relevance, ease of use, cost, and credibility; the guide will be updated according to readers' feedback and their use of it.
