TY - JOUR. T1 - Trends in occupational and adult lead exposure in Wisconsin 1988-2005. AU - Anderson, Henry A.. AU - Islam, K. M.Monirul. PY - 2006. Y1 - 2006. N2 - Seventeen years of adult blood lead surveillance data (37,694 individuals and 71,622 total tests) reveal a Wisconsin success story. While lead continues to be widely used, most Wisconsin industries have made substantial strides toward reducing occupational lead exposure. The improvement is reflected in the reduced number of blood lead levels ,40 μg/dL. In 2005 only a single adult blood lead test was ,50 μg/dL, and since 2003 none have been reported above 60 μg/dL. However, as long as lead is used industrially, lead-based products remain in use, and new consumer products containing lead are marketed to the public, lead poisoning will remain a threat, not only to workers handling lead, but also to children exposed to lead-containing products already in existence. Wisconsin industry and workers, as well as the medical and public ...
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 ...
Although not required by OSHA, the National Health and Safety Support Committee highly recommends that each council and camp have an active enterprise risk management committee.

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: ...

OSHA has repealed Arizonas state-specific residential fall protection regulation put forth by the Arizona Division of Occupational Safety and Health (ADOSH) - Arizonas state OSHA plan. Because of this change, Arizona homebuilders will now be required to implement fall protection for workers in construction activities at heights of 6 feet or more. The repealed standard had held that this protection was not required until workers were at heights of 15 feet or more.. ADOSH originally instituted its more lenient fall protection requirements back in 2012. When challenged by OSHA, ADOSH representatives insisted that their standard was still as effective as the federal OSHA standard for keeping workers safe. As reported on this blog, OSHA responded that it was ready to take over safety standards from ADOSH if it believed minimum federal requirements were not being met.. Between 2003 and 2014, 11 Arizona workers died in falls between 6 and 15 feet.. Several officials, including Arizona senators John ...

OSHA comments from the January 19, 1989 Final Rule on Air Contaminants Project extracted from 54FR2332 et. seq. This rule was remanded by the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and the limits are not currently in force.. CAS: 108-88-3; Chemical Formula: C6H5CH3. The former OSHA standard for toluene was 200 ppm as an 8-hour TWA limit, with a 300-ppm ceiling (not to be exceeded for more than 10 minutes in any eight-hour period), and a 500-ppm peak. The ACGIH has an exposure limit for toluene of 100 ppm as an 8-hour TWA and 150 ppm as a 15-minute STEL; NIOSH recommends a 100-ppm 8-hour TWA and a 10-minute ceiling of 200 ppm. The proposed PELs were 100 ppm as an 8-hour TWA and 150 ppm as a STEL; NIOSH (Ex. 8-47, Table N1) concurs with these limits, which are established in the final rule. Toluene is a flammable, colorless liquid with an aromatic hydrocarbon odor.. The acute toxicity of toluene in animals is greater than that of benzene. Patty (1963b, as cited in ACGIH 1986/Ex. 1-3, p. 578) reports that ...
Hi folks -. Boy, its fun to watch how sneaky OSHA can be. If youve been paying attention, you know that the agency has quietly passed changes to a few pretty important rules in the healthcare industry.. First, there was an upgrade to the Workplace Violence Prevention rule (3148), which basically is a rule that requires employers to have a plan in place. There was also a very well-done manual that went with it to help you out.. Then, in May, OSHA and NIOSH teamed up to provide a Respiratory Protection Toolkit for employers, which essentially is a warning that if you dont already use respirators to help protect your workers against infections, you better start. And heres the handy toolkit published to help you out:. https://www.osha.gov/Publications/OSHA3767.pdf. I dont doubt that these are great things. We all want a safer work environment. But whats going on here? Well, in the opinion of one lawyer who I read in an online blog:. The bottom line is that OSHA is coming. Accordingly, ...

In Corpus Christi, Texas, back in March, two construction workers were injured after becoming pinned between two concrete slabs. Both men were quickly transported to Spohn Memorial Hospital, and news of their condition has not been released. Working in construction can be very dangerous, and lift-slab operations are among the hazardous construction jobs which workers face.. The United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) provides safety and health standards for all job industries, and they have information specifically about lift-slab operations. The information is indicative of the type of safety precautions employers are responsible to take.. Before lift-slab operations can even begin, they must first be planned and designed by an experienced professional engineer. The employer must implement the designs and plans, which should have detailed sketches and instructions making the prescribed safe method of erection clear. Lateral stability of the building during ...
For far too long, some corporations have gotten away with unsafe conditions. Every year, nearly 4,500 workers are killed on the job and 50,000 die from occupational diseases. This is wrong and needs to stop.. We have to do more to ensure Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations are followed and to protect those who work hard day in and day out. That means calling out corporations and politicians who do not play by the rules, and demanding that necessary OSHA standards, including the new proposed silica standard, get finalized and become law.. On this Workers Memorial Day, we will stand with working families who want a safe and healthy workplace. No one should have to risk life and livelihood because of a companys inability to do whats right by ensuring a safe and healthy work environment. The time to do more is now.. In 2012, 75 Kansas workers were killed on the job. There were only nine states with more deaths on the job than Kansas recorded. Kansas workers deserve a ...
1980), was relevant to the issues in the present cases. We disagree. OSHA amended its Cancer Policy to carry out the Courts interpretation of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 that consideration must be given to the significance of the risk in the issuance of a carcinogen standard and that OSHA must consider all relevant evidence in making these determinations. 46 Fed. Reg. 4889, col. 3 (1981). Previously, although lacking such evidence as dose-response data, the Secretary presumed that no safe exposure level existed for carcinogenic substances. Industrial Union Dept. v. American Petroleum Institute, supra, at 620, 624-625, 635-636, nn. 39 and 40 (plurality opinion). Following this Courts decision, OSHA deleted those provisions of the Cancer Policy which required the automatic setting of the lowest feasible level without regard to determinations of risk significance. 46 Fed. Reg. 4890, col. 1 (1981). In distinct contrast with its Cancer Policy, OSHA expressly found that ...

Enforcement of the Confined Spaces in Construction standard published on May 4, 2015 for residential construction work has changed. The new standard went into effect on August 3, 2015. A temporary enforcement policy has been in effect for all employers covered by the standard through October 2, 2015. OSHA now further extends this temporary enforcement policy through January 8, 2016, only for employers engaged in residential construction work. Before January 8, 2016, OSHA will not issue citations under the Confined Spaces in Construction standard to an employer engaged in residential construction work if the employer is making good faith efforts to comply with the standard, as long as the employer is in compliance with either the training requirements of the standard, found at 29 CFR 1926.1207, or the former training requirements found at 29 CFR 1926.21(b)(6)(i) ...
The United States National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have all recognized that Benzene is a carcinogen and have set permissible exposure limits in various workplace and environmental settings. Your employer has an obligation to protect you from both dermal (skin) and inhalation exposure to Benzene. The law imposes an obligation on your employer to provide you with a safe place to work. If your employer failed to provide you with the proper safety equipment when working around Benzene, then you may have a claim against your employer for failing to provide you with a safe place to work.. In addition, depending upon when your exposure took place, the manufacturers of the Benzene may be liable for damages. Investigation into your work history and exposure history to Benzene is a critical component in determining whether you have a claim ...
The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) published its proposed rule for occupational exposure to respirable crystalline silica in the Federal Register yesterday. The proposed rule includes two standards, one for general industry and maritime and the other specifically for construction. The construction standard would reduce the current permissible exposure limit (PEL) of respirable crystalline silica which was established in 1971 from 250 micrograms per cubic meter averaged over an 8-hour day down to 50 micrograms per cubic meter. OSHA claims the proposed rule would save the lives of 560 construction workers and prevent 1,080 cases of silicosis a year. Its estimated that approximately 1.85 million construction workers are exposed to respirable crystalline silica at their workplace.. Silica, also known as silicon dioxide, is a chemical compound that occurs in nature as a basic component of sand and quartz. Silica is found in a number of building materials including shingles, ...

Knee, ankle, and foot injuries are common when people slip or fall which causes you to bend and strain your muscle and soft tissues. In many cases, your employer is obligated to provide workers compensation benefits if you fracture or damage your knee, ankle, or foot. While you recover from your injury you may return to work and request reasonable accommodations for your temporary or permanent disability.. The Occupational Safety and Health Administrations (OSHA) has established work related regulations so that employees maintain a safe working environment. Under OSHA employers are required to train their employees to keep a hazardous free working environment and ensure that OSHA policies are followed and enforced. OSHA states that slips, trips, and falls, (STF) result in work-related deaths or injuries and these injuries make up a large majority of all accidents in the general industry. OSHA has established specific regulations that aim to prevent STF injuries at the workplace. Failing to ...

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) published an interim final rule establishing procedures and time frames for handling retaliation complaints under the Food Safety Modernization Act. OSHA invites the public to submit comments on the interim final rule.
OSHA compliance can often be a problem in hospitals because of the wide range of activities taking place (including those of outside contractors) across many departments. A dedicated effort is necessary to ensure continuous compliance and can help prevent a serious injury, reduce workers compensation costs, and reduce risk to brand name. Fortunately, many of the review and improvement mechanisms already exist in hospitals to ensure Joint Commission compliance, and with a little additional effort and a trained eye they can be applied to ensuring OSHA compliance as well.. Achieving a safer workplace and OSHA compliance may seem like a formidable task, but if tackled methodically using the results of the hazard and risk assessment it is very doable. The high cost of employee injury and illness, non-compliance, and risk to staff and patient well being is more than worth the effort to improve safety performance.. Bryan Connors, M.S., C.I.H., H.E.M., is Practice Director, Healthcare, at EH&E. He has ...
