SUPPLIER WEBINAR: An Overview of OSHA Regulations and Safety Program Audits at BROWZ

Join BROWZ for a free educational webinar to help you understand OSHA regulations and health and safety program audits at BROWZ. Many of your clients request you to provide written safety programs which are audited by BROWZ.

During this webinar we’ll discuss the topic of written safety programs, and the level of program detail that your client and regulators are expecting. We will give a regulatory overview, and provide information on how to read an OSHA standard. We will also show you the level of detail we will provide if your program is deficient. Lastly, we will provide you with recommendation options for assistance on program improvement.   

We believe the content of the webinar will answer questions you may have about the SURE Audit process, and put you on a path for a successful audit.

What we'll cover:

• About BROWZ auditing & supply chain qualification
• Uploading written safety programs
• Regulatory overview
• How to read an OSHA standard
• BROWZ audit results
• Resources for written safety programs
• Q&A
