OSHA and The Printing Industry

Virtually every commercial lithographic printer in the United States, regardless of size, is required to comply with OSHA standards. The first step in a compliance program is to understand which specific requirements apply. A printing company must evaluate their facility operations in order to determine their compliance status.
