"In work environments with a mix of employee and contractor workers, a disproportionate number of safety incidents are attributed to contractors," Jeff Muto, of Veriforce, LLC, says.

Regardless of the industry, if hazardous chemicals are on a job site, the chance for accidental release is present if they aren’t properly controlled, which lifts the possibility of a potential disaster.

To combat deaths and injuries from industrial accidents, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires businesses that deal with a volume of hazardous chemicals at or above a threshold set by the administration must develop a process safety management program that follows a list of requirements from OSHA.
