OSHA Field Safety and Health Manual (SHMS)

OSHA Instruction ADM 04-00-003

This OSHA Field Safety and Health Management System (SHMS) manual is for Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) employees and establishes safety and health programs as identified in subsequent chapters for Regional implementation. Employee participation is a key element of any successful SHMS. It is the intent of this program that all OSHA employees will participate in all aspects including reporting hazards, incidents, and injury/illness without fear of reprisal. Changes to the SHMS or programs that alter the SHMS or program policies require National Office review and approval.
