* eTools are electronic Compliance Assistance Tools that provide guidance information for developing a comprehensive safety and health program. Although Safety and Health Programs are required by some states, there is no general OSHA requirement for such a program. Therefore, this eTool includes elements that go beyond specific OSHA mandates, such as recommendations for good industry practice. As indicated in the disclaimer, eTools do not create new OSHA requirements.*
