Now – did he link to MY site?  No, he did not.  Sort of like ‘hey, do me a favor and I return favor’ etiquette thing on the inter webs, but, it does have good info…

Although Safety Talk Idea Guy – if you can make your talks downloadable, that makes them more popular.  Just sayin’

OSHA’s Field Manuals – Download Free, Here!

OSHA publishes their field manuals, plus items called ‘CPL’s.’  CPL (short for ‘compliance’) documents are the actual guidelines that OSHA uses when performing inspections.  No, really.

Some of these are very long and involved, but if you want to know what OSHA will look for on your job, look here.  I have no posted all of them, but here is a sample.  To get the rest, go to http://www.osha.gov and do a search for “CPL.”
