What is a variance?
A variance is an allowed deviation from a specific safety or health standard when an employer substitutes measures that afford an equal degree of safety.
A variance is not a means of legally avoiding compliance with a safety or health standard. To obtain a variance, it must be proven that employees will be provided with protection equal to compliance with the standard.
