Only posting a link to the Miami Herald – but if you have not seen this chilling analysis, it is worth a read. Everything from missing rebar, design changes, plus the various issues that lead to the collapse and death of 98 people. Animations, plus video show what happened, plus the stories of some of the people inside.
If you are in construction, you should give this a read:
Some of these have been posted in he past, but here are all of the current OSHA e-books that are on their website.
Programs will include information on hazard communication, respiratory protection, workplace violence in healthcare, nail salons, trees, ladders. etc.
Note – 2 are missing – those are the ones on COVID-19. Since the rule faced challenges, he information in the books may not currently be accurate.
Word format, and government, means you can download and modify and put your name on it and no one will every know.
These are from North Carolina, I believe.
You know what to do:
This one may be more comprehensive than most need, but it is really, really good.
Again, from Texas(!)
Who knew they had this much stuff?

You know what to do:

That is, ‘Stay safe and be well’ in Lao. I used a translator so if it says something else, my bad.
(Definitely Not OSHA)
Below are a great selection of books from OSHA. These may be 20 – 100 pages and include items such as guides on what they require for training.
Note – I have included the pdf version, but if you go to the OSHA website, they also have MOBI and EPUB.

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.

Additional resources and posters for COVID-19. These are from both OSHA and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). These include guides for specific industry, plus posters.
Some good new stuff.
