Corona Virus Information – COVID-19 OSHA and CDC

Corona PicWell as the the internet likes to say, ‘That Escalated Quickly.’

Below is a grouping of resources from OSHA and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).  The CDC items are very good, and even include printable posters.

I will update the site as I find more stuff.  For you in Europe or other places, feel free to comment on additional resources.

Good luck to everyone – wash those hands, clean surfaces – do the stuff listed below.  Keep doing your good work.

Residential Construction Fall Protection – Free, from OSHA!

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.

You know what to do (click):

reducing falls in residential construction – roof sheathing

reducing falls in residential construction – roof repair

reducing falls in residential construction – installing roof tiles

reducing falls in residential construction – installing roof joists and trusses

Confined Spaces – Residential Construction

Hey Everyone

Those of you who are in residential construction noted that when they updated the confined space entry standard a while back, it included residential construction.  This industry had been somewhat overlooked by OSHA in the past.  They have updated some of their materials to be more clear as to what is expected.

500,000?

Since my cite is free, the number of hits really doesn’t mean much, besides a point of pride. That said, by the look of it, the site recently hit a milestone of 500,000 hits.

Seeing as extremely little content is produced by the site itself, it is nice to see that everyone is using this place as the library it was designed to be. I will start posting more, I promise. Some have asked for food safety, and I have had other requests as well.

It is nice to think that we have a worldwide army of safety people out there that are that are working for the safety of others. Of course, this is our career, so it isn’t 100% altruistic or anything (I avoid being sanctimonious), but when we do our job, people return home with all of their fingers and toes.

Thanks to all!
