These examples are provided only as general guides to assist employers in developing written programs. They are not intended to supersede the requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) standards as found in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), nor do they represent complete written programs. Samples are available for the following:

OSHA etools, eMatrix, Advisors, and v-Tools


eTools and the eMatrix are interactive, Web-based training tools on occupational safety and health topics. They are highly illustrated and utilize graphical menus. Some also use expert system modules, which enable the user to answer questions, and receive reliable advice on how OSHA regulations apply to their work site. Expert Advisors are based solely on expert systems and v-Tools are prevention video training tools. Selected eTools are available as downloadable files for off-line use.
