This year, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) updated their requirements for employers incorporate fall protection training to help further prevent and reduce accidents.

With these changes, as of January 17, 2017, Fall Protection Training is required for any employee using a walking or working surface at or above 4 feet.

Safety Tip of the Week

Safety Tip of the Week

Even if you are traveling at low speed, a piece of debris in your path can cause the load to tip over or the operator to lose control; this can be easily avoided by keeping all pathways clean, and of course paying close attention during forklift operation. Also be sure to properly stack loads on pallets and use prevention measures such as ropes or binders if necessary to ensure load security. It is better to make two safe trips than having an accident with one insecure load.

Training Requirement by December 1st, 2013 for Revised Hazard Communication Standard

Training Requirement by December 1st, 2013 for Revised Hazard Communication Standard

The OSHA Hazard Communication Standard has recently been revised to include new requirements which will be phased in over the next two and half years. Facilities and operations with any hazardous chemicals or materials must complete employee training by December 1, 2013.

This rule applies to all companies even if they only have one "Hazardous Chemical" on site such as:
        battery powered fork lift trucks battery acid
        Propane powered industrial units
        Food facilities who use chemicals for cleaning

The OSHA updates to the Hazard Communication Standard includes all operations and facilities which have at least one hazardous chemical on site.

The revisions are the result of OSHA’s alignment of the Hazard Communication Standard with the United Nations’ Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. The training, to be provided by December 1, 2013, must include information on the Standard’s new labeling and safety data sheet (SDS) format requirements.
