A Technical Guideline provides non-mandatory information and guidance on how to achieve a requirement as defined in the OSHAD-SF. Guidance is not mandatory, but it should be adopted unless an entity chooses an alternative control measure or course of action that achieves an equivalent or better standard.

Technical guidelines are developed jointly by OSHAD and relevant subject Competent Authority – usually as a subordinate document to an approved Code of Practice.
