When it comes to employee protection, the prevailing wisdom is that metrics matter. OSHA and safety experts agree that assessing what you’re doing is an essential tool to get closer to where you want to be. This Compliance Report takes an in-depth look at the STEP initiative. Be sure to check out the six leading indicators found to have the greatest impact on safety performance.
Guidance Documents:
NIOSH has developed an aerial lift Hazard Recognition Simulator to help potential aerial lift operators acclimate to aerial lift operation and to identify the common occupational hazards that can be present during use, such as depressions (potholes), crushing hazards, tip over hazards, etc. Download the ZIP file at the bottom of the NIOSH webpage to access the Simulator.
Questions & Answers:
ANSI Z358.1, which as stated OSHA references, says eyewash stations must be within 10 seconds walking time and on the same floor level of an area where there is reasonable expectation of exposure to hazardous substances.
There are no DEF-specific standards for the storage of these products. However, the Agency’s hazard communication standard applies to DEF products. As such containers of DEF require HazCom labeling that includes at least the identity of the material, appropriate hazard warnings, and the name and address of the manufacturer.
Regulatory Analysis:
This analysis covers the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) general industry and construction industry standards for respirable crystalline silica. Specifically, the analysis covers the permissible exposure limit (PEL), action level for exposure to silica, methods of compliance, medical surveillance program, recordkeeping, and employee training.
Forms:
This List of Substance-Specific OSHA Standards" can be used for hazardous substances and materials procedures at your facility. Updated with silica.
