HIOSH Hazard Highlight

The information has been developed by HIOSH and is intended to assist employers, workers, and others improve workplace health and safety.

While we attempt to thoroughly address specific topics/hazards, it is not possible to include discussion of everything necessary to ensure a healthy and safe working environment in this presentation.

This information is a tool for addressing workplace hazards, and is not an exhaustive statement of an employer’s legal obligations, which are defined by statute, regulations, and standards.

The documents do not have the force and effect of law and is not meant to bind the public in any way. The document is intended only to provide clarity to the public regarding existing requirements under the law or agency policies. It does not create (or diminish) legal obligations under the Hawaii Occupational Safety and Health Law.

Finally, HIOSH and OSHA may modify rules and related interpretations in light of new technology, information, or circumstances; to keep apprised of such developments, or to review information on a wide range of occupational safety and health topics, you can visit OSHA’s website at osha.gov
