Questions & Answers:
We could not find a clear statement within the OSHA regulation/interpretation/guidance stating that a "weld" shop is not required to have a Hot Works Permit. As long as the area, including a weld shop, is inspected by an authorized person and follows the precautions “preferably” in the form of a written permit as outlined in the rule, then the area is considered an “authorized” welding area. The rule does not prescribe a time period or expiration date for a written permit.
I have four machine shop facilities with 50, 35, 12, and 5 people. Do I have to keep OSHA 300, 300A logs, etc., for each site or can I lump into one for reporting to ITA or contract purposes?
What inspection logs does OSHA require to be kept at a construction site?
Final Rules:

OSHA Challenge
Under a new set of procedures for contesting OSHA citations issued April 10, which group still has the option to file paper documents?
• Attorneys representing cited employers
• Employers representing themselves
• All employers that have received willful violations
• All employers with fewer than 50 employees
If you ever wanted to tell an applicant the truth, and the whole truth, about why you rejected him or her for a job, maybe you will find satisfaction in living vicariously through the BBC.
