Title: 1904.5 – Work Environment
Type: Text Slide
- The work environment is defined as the establishment and other locations where one or more
employees are working or present as a condition of employment
- The work environment includes not only physical locations, but also the equipment or materials
used by employees during the course of their work
When employees are at the establishment, they are in the work environment. When employees are
working away from the establishment, they carry a "bubble" of work environment wherever they go.
