There is a big difference between being OSHA complaint and RAVS® compliant. OSHA compliance means meeting every standard OSHA sets forth regarding a specific area. For example confined space training. A company must meet every standard in their safety manual set forth by the OSHA guidelines to become OSHA compliant. This means that your safety manual can grow exponentially.
On the other hand RAVS® compliance is a different animal. ISNetworld® picks various OSHA requirements and wants your company to meet these requirements. This means that not all of the requirements given to meet an ISNetworld® safety program will qualify you for an OSHA compliant safety program. It is important to know the difference because you may need an OSHA compliant safety program for certain contractors.
