Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act, 29 U.S.C.A. § 651 et seq., a business that negligently jeopardizes the lives or health of its workers commits a federal misdemeanor.. The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 created the LABOR DEPARTMENTs Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to serve as the federal governments workplace-safety watchdog, and the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission (OSHRC) to rule on cases, forwarded to it by the Labor Department, of disagreements over the results of OSHA safety and health inspections.. The act authorizes civil fines up to $10,000 for instances where employers "willfully" expose workers to "serious" harm or death. Any act of criminal negligence can result in imprisonment of up to six months.. The Labor Departments assistant secretary for occupational safety and health has responsibility for overseeing OSHA. OSHA has its headquarters in Washington, D.C., and maintains ten regional offices. It develops and ...

The permissible exposure limit (PEL or OSHA PEL) is a legal limit in the United States for exposure of an employee to a chemical substance or physical agent such as high level noise. Permissible exposure limits are established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Most of OSHAs PELs were issued shortly after adoption of the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act in 1970.[1] For chemicals, the chemical regulation is usually expressed in parts per million (ppm), or sometimes in milligrams per cubic meter (mg/m3). Units of measure for physical agents such as noise are specific to the agent. A PEL is usually given as a time-weighted average (TWA), although some are short-term exposure limits (STEL) or ceiling limits. A TWA is the average exposure over a specified period, usually a nominal eight hours. This means that, for limited periods, a worker may be exposed to concentration excursions higher than the PEL, so long as the TWA is not exceeded and any applicable excursion ...
OSHA is proposing two changes to the Recordkeeping Standard (29 CFR 1904) that would have significant consequences for employers. The first change is to section 1904.39, the eight hour reporting requirements for serious injuries and fatalities. The second change is to 1904.2,the way OSHA determines partially exempt industries from the recordkeeping standard - which will create a number of new partially exempt industries, but also move other industries off of the partially exempt list.. According OSHAs news release, current regulations require "an employer to report to OSHA, within eight hours, all work-related fatalities and in-patient hospitalizations of three or more employees. Under the revised proposal, employers would be required to report to OSHA any work-related fatalities and all in-patient hospitalizations within eight hours, and work-related amputations within 24 hours. Reporting amputations is not required under the current regulation.". In the proposed rule an amputation is defined ...

Nearly 30 million U.S. workers are exposed to hazardous noise every year. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that more than 125,000 workers have suffered significant or permanent hearing loss since 2004. As a result, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has developed some strict regulations for occupational noise levels and exposures. To understand what actions are necessary for hearing protection, you need to understand noise measurements and the limits in OSHAs regulations. Noise is measured in units called decibels adjusted (dBA), which is the noise power calculated in dBs. OSHAs permissible exposure limit (PEL) is 90 dBA, time-weighted for an 8-hour day. The OSHA standard uses a 5-dBA exchange rate, so when the noise level increases by 5 dBA, the amount of time a person may be exposed to that certain noise level is cut in half. Consider hearing-protection devices (HPD) even when a portion of the days noise is below the 8-hour PEL, since that is the minimum ...
More than 90 million Americans spend their days on the job. They are our most valuable national resource. Yet, until 1970, no uniform and comprehensive provisions existed for their protection against workplace safety and health hazards. In 1970, Congress considered annual figures such as the following to support the need for worker protection legislation: ...

Alzheimers disease (AD) is characterized by progressive cognitive decline and memory loss. It has been hypothesized that environmental factors and gene-environment interactions (GXE) may increase AD risk and accelerate cognitive decline. However, there is currently little direct evidence supporting this hypothesis. Interestingly, the E4 allele of the Apolipoprotein E gene (ApoE4) is the strongest known genetic risk factor for late-onset, sporadic AD, and it is also associated with accelerated cognitive decline compared to ApoE4 non-carriers. Furthermore, the heavy metal lead is a neurotoxicant of major public health importance and is associated with persistent cognitive and behavior deficits in humans. Using transgenic knock-in (KI) mice that express the human ApoE4 allele (ApoE4-KI), I found that adult-only lead exposure is sufficient to impair cognitive behavior and that lead-exposed ApoE4-KI mice develop more severe or exhibit earlier deficits in learning and memory compared to ApoE3-KI ...

This Section stresses the fact that you must use OSHA Forms 300, 300-A, and 301 or their equivalent, whenever a recordable injury or illness is involved. Form 300 is the Log recording work-related injuries and illnesses. Form 300-A is a Summary of work-related injuries and illness reported on Form 300 and Form 301 is the Injury and Illness Incident Report.. Each recordable injury or illness must be entered on OSHA Forms 300 and 301 within seven calendar days following receipt of information that a recordable injury or illness has occurred.. You must complete a Form 301 Incident Report, or an equivalent form for each recordable injury or illness entered on Form 300.. Note: An equivalent form must be one that records the same information as OSHA Forms 300 and 301, is as readable and understandable, and follows the same instructions, as do the OSHA forms that they replace. You are allowed to keep records in a computer if the computer is able to produce forms equivalent to the OSHA forms when they ...

Scott Mugno, Vice President for Safety, Sustainability, and Vehicle Maintenance at Fed Ex Ground in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is President Trumps pick to head the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Although whispers of Mugnos possible nomination had spread across Washington, D.C., over the past several months, not much has been said about his credentials for the job. One major concern is Mugnos connection to the notoriously anti-regulatory U.S. Chamber of Commerce, for which he is currently the chairman of the OSHA subcommittee of the groups Labor Relations Committee. And as Jordan Barab, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Labor at OSHA, highlights in his excellent blog post on the nomination, Mugno expressed interest in sunsetting OSHA standards in comments he made at a Chamber event last year. When Mugno goes before the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee for confirmation hearings, it will be imperative for senators to get him on the record on the ...

Fatalities in the United States associated with trench collapses and other excavation hazards continue to occur despite an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standard that specifies safe work practices to reduce hazards for workers. Approximately 54 workers are killed annually as a result of these hazards, according to a review of surveillance data performed by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH/CDC). This review identified 542 fatalities over the period 1992-2001, nearly half (256 or 47%) in firms with 10 or fewer workers, and 70% (381) in firms with fewer than 50 workers. Many of the injuries and fatalities associated with trench and excavation work are preventable and occur when the guidance of the OSHA standard is not followed.. ...
Our OSHA 10 Hour General Industry Training Course provides training on general industry, safety and health to employees who are involved with daily operations.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is the primary body governing state and federal safety and labor standards. Several states have created local programs to oversee OSHA enforcement and training to improve local enforcement and guidance. In California, The Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH), commonly referred to as Cal OSHA, was established to provide employers with assistance in meeting compliance guidelines and develop inspection programs. OSHA safety awareness standards require employers to conduct regular training and safety meetings on a variety of approved topics. For example, Title 8, California Code of Regulation Construction Safety Orders, Section:1509, requires safety meetings at least every 10 working days. The construction industry refers to these meetings as tailgate or toolbox safety meetings.

After an employee at JFM International Inc. in Willis, Texas, filed complaints with the U.S. Department of Labors Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the company was investigated. During their September 2016 visit, OSHA investigators allege that workers were exposed to several dangerous situations in the workplace. For example, OSHA alleges that workers were not protected against amputation and other serious injuries because the exposed rotating parts lacked safeguards. OSHA also alleges that workers were not properly protected from hearing loss because they were exposed to excessive noise. JFM was cited for three serious health violations, including failing to record an injury that occurred in the workplace and failing to protect workers from electrical and flammable chemical hazards.. The following are more details about alleged serious OSHA violations committed by JFM International:. A continuing, effective hearing conservation program was allegedly not administered by the ...

By David DeMoss. Lets talk about workplace safety. In our last article, we discussed why having a crisis communication strategy is important to help mitigate complications when unexpected issues arise. But what are the protocols, exactly?. Now that COVID-19 is classified as a "recordable illness" under the Occupational Safety and Health Act, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is sending notification letters about workplace safety to employers who have received complaints during this time. OSHAs General Duty Clause states that employees will be "free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm," meaning that if there is an increased risk of COVID-19 exposure, employers need to take the correct action to maintain the safety of their employees. This includes asking an employee if he or she is experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19, potentially measuring an employees body temperature, asking details of an employees ...

Cal/OSHA has strict guidelines for reporting serious injuries and fatalities in the workplace. Failure to comply can result in severe penalties and fines. To make it easy for you, here are the requirements in a nutshell:. A serious injury or illness must be reported no later than 8 hours after the employer knows. Failure to comply with OSHA standards and regulations can result in fines ranging from $7,000 to $70,000.. What is a Serious Injury? "Serious injury or illness" means any injury or illness occurring in a place of employment or in connection with any employment which requires inpatient hospitalization for a period in excess of 24 hours for other than medical observation or in which an employee suffers a loss of any member of the body or suffers any serious degree of permanent disfigurement, but does not include any injury or illness or death caused by the commission of a Penal Code violation, except the violation of Section 385 of the Penal Code, or an accident on a public street or ...

In coming months the Occupational Safety and Health Administration will hold public hearings on one of its most far-reaching new regulations in recent years. OSHAs proposed silica rule would affect more than 2 million workers in construction, oil and gas exploration, manufacturing, and any work that involves silica-containing materials such as soil, dirt, sand, rock, brick, pavement or concrete.. Because silica is so ubiquitous and the impact of any rule so widespread some in Congress and in industry have expressed concern over any unnecessary impact on jobs and the economy.. Much of OSHAs proposed rule is modeled on the successful voluntary occupational health program established more than 30 years ago by the countrys leading sand-producing companies through the National Industrial Sand Association. Those companies have virtually eliminated silicosis from their workplaces.. The proposed OSHA regulations would mandate for the first time many new and long overdue worker protection provisions, ...

In February 2016, the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) notified NWPCA that the pallet manufacturing industry would be subject to a "Local Emphasis Program" (LEP) in the state of Wisconsin, focusing on the hazards associated with pallet assembly and disassembly, and the use of powered industrial trucks. The LEP for the Wood Pallet Manufacturing Industry is CPL 03-00 (LEP-028) and details of the initiative can be downloaded at http://www.osha.gov/dep/leps/leps.html#R5. The pallet industry sector is already targeted under existing OSHA National Emphasis Programs covering amputation prevention, lockout/tagout, and combustible dust, but the new local program is another example of how the industry is now in OSHAs crosshairs for enforcement.

The Occupational Safety and Health Agency (OSHA), a federal entity, is charged with every issue concerning workplace safety, and health. Primarily they are regulatory in nature, but also have enforcement authority. OSHA works with a number of other entities, including subdivisions of the Center for Disease Control. OSHA, allows states to maintain their own offices of Occupational Safety and Health, through a legislative act. Specifically, Section 18 of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (the Act) encourages States to develop and operate their own job safety and health programs. States must set job safety and health standards that are at least as effective as comparable federal standards. (Most States adopt standards identical to federal ones.) States have the option to promulgate standards covering hazards not addressed by federal standards. Those states that fail to maintain these standards, or those that have significant industrial injuries, again are monitored by OSHA.
