Updated On: May 18, 2004
Editorial Change:
This guide has been developed to provide guidance in developing a company safety program for contractors who apply industrial coatings. Contractors seeking to be certified in accordance with the requirements of SSPC Qualification Procedures (e.g., SSPC-QP 1, QP 2, and QP 3) must present written verification that their company has a safety program in effect and that program rules are constantly monitored and enforced.

This guide identifies the core elements and requirements for developing a company safety program that incorporates good safety practice as well as regulatory requirements, and complies with the requirements for SSPC certification as well as meeting the current OSHA guidelines for a company safety program

Although it is intended for this guide to be a comprehensive document, some facility owners, such as the U.S Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Military, and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, may require companies working in their facilities to include additional program elements. Also, regulations on a federal, state and local level are constantly changing and program elements must be periodically reviewed and supplemented or modified to ensure compliance.
