Cremation OSHA Compliance Checklist

Crematory OSHA Compliance Checklist 

Funeral Home and Crematory Challenges: Operating a funeral home or crematory can present some unique hazards – potential for blood and chemical exposure, lifting human remains also presents unique musculoskeletal hazards – but is your facility also in compliance with OSHA? Funeral Home OSHA fines can reach $70,000 or more.

Certified Safety Training, the official compliance provider to the NFDA, developed the following checklist to ensure your funeral home facility is safe and in compliance with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

This checklist is designed to give you an overview of what is required to bring your facility into compliance. OSHA has very specific requirements and standards that apply to funeral homes, cemeteries, and crematories. To be in full compliance with OSHA you will need more than a checklist, you must adhere to the OSHA standards at the end of this checklist by having a Complete Compliance Program.
