OSHA has some great materials on working in residential construction. Guidance in this area is necessary, as most of the materials and training out there are for larger construction sites. OSHA is now focusing my more heavily on residential construction, so the materials below are quite necessary.
Traffic from the UK was heavy and I received several comments like, “Good materials, but we will have to adapt them to the UK.” Well, seeing as the traffic was heavy, and this all about the safety of workers on the job, I did a little bit of looking and found where the Queen hides her safety materials. At least some of them. So here they are. Not all, obviously, but, a basic selection. Now that I have raided her coffers, I will add more in the future. If people across the pond know of more good materials, feel free to forward and I will post.
For those in the USA and elsewhere – regulations from the UK are normally at, or above what the USA requires. So instead of doing ‘the minimum,’ why not give this a look see? It won’t kill you (no pun).
Free fall protection materials from OSHA, as well as the fine folks at CPWR. Check out their website at http://www.cpwr.com. They are great people.
Below are materials on all aspects of fall protection, including training wallet cards, complete programs, toolbox talks, and QuickCards. English, Spanish, and other languages. A training video previously posted is also included. To download the video, start the video and then look for an arrow in the upper left hand corner. Click on that and the option to download will be present.
