OSHA has announced enhancements to its compliance variance webpage. To improve public access to, and understanding of, the variance approval process, the page will now list variance applications denied by OSHA, as well as those approved by OSHA.
 
This newly available information illustrates which requirements employers have failed to meet when applying for a variance.
 
A variance is a regulatory action that permits an employer to deviate from the requirements of an OSHA standard under specified conditions. OSHA may grant a variance to employers who can prove their alternative method, condition, practice, operation, or process provides the employer's workers with a workplace as safe and healthful as required by the applicable OSHA standard.
