The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is conducting a nationwide survey to gather data about employers’ workplace safety and health management practices. The agency says the results will be used to help guide future rules, compliance assistance, and outreach efforts.

The survey will be sent to as many as 19,000 private sector employers of all sizes and across all industries under OSHA’s jurisdiction. Questions include whether respondents already have a safety management system, whether they perform annual inspections, who manages safety at their establishment, and what kinds of hazards they encounter at their facilities.

Participation in the survey is voluntary. Employers will receive a paper copy of the survey that can be filled out and returned with the option to complete it online. Only employers who receive a paper copy of the survey will be able to complete the online version.

OSHA expects the data collection to be completed by August. The results provided to the agency by its contractor Easter Research Programs will be anonymous and cannot be used for enforcement purposes.
