CalOSHA – Safety Programs in Word Format

From these guys

Word format is always welcome – and copyright free word format is even better.

These programs come from CalOSHA so they should easily meet or exceed federal guidelines. Some, like the restaurant stuff, is specific, so very useful.

CalOSHA Pocket Construction Safety Guide

At 88 pages, it is a heck of a ‘pocket’ guide, but I didn’t name it. This is actually a comprehensive safety guide for construction sites. Since this is California, the standards will be as good, or more so, than other places in the USA.

Additionally, if you want to go into mass production with these guides, they kindly included the setup for professional printing. Those files are included as well.

CalOSHA – Scaffold Guides and Confined Spaces

I had a request for CalOSHA Stuff, so I looked around and sure enough – there is a good amount.  For Non-California viewers and international types (you know who you are) – The USA has the federal OSHA, but the states can opt out of the federal OSHA plan as long as their regulations are as strong, or stronger, than the federal OSHA.  Hence, this stuff is at least as good as what OSHA requires.

Below are materials on scaffolds:
