Safety and Compliance Standards
Safety and Compliance standards address the many factors involved in the management of equipment and workplace safety in industrial plants, as well as meeting
industry-wide compliancy requirements and standards. Safety and Compliance Standards provide the basis of meeting said requirements through the regulation
of the installation and maintenance of machinery; procedures for inspecting and testing equipment and products; requirements for plant facilities and work
environments; and measurements to assure workplace safety. Safety and Compliance Standards serve to reduce safety and legal risk throughout the industrial
sector by means of specifying agreed upon safety principles, including those concerning design, maintenance, construction, inspection, and operation.
The standardization of Safety and Compliance procedures helps to assure that the workplace and industry space are safe.

OHS- 2: Pedestrian and Vehicle Safety Guideline
The Guideline addresses plant facility layouts, visual displays, and mental attitudes. The facility and visual displays are physical items that assist in making the work place safer, The mental elements are somewhat more intangible but crucial to maintaining the awareness of and proper emphasis on safety. It is important to remember that the Pedestrian and Safety Guideline involves a lot more than ""simply painting lines on the floor."" It is a comprehensive program and,to be effective, it needs the interaction among all of its elements(facilities assessment indentifying areas requiring pedestrian/vehicular safety controls, equipment specifications, and pedestrian/operator training).
