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.

Below is an OSHA 300, 300A, 301, log in Excel format. This one is especially nice as each different form is simply a new tab. Hence, easy to use and organize, and can even be imported into IOS or other formats.

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!
Always interesting when someone new discovers the site, and of course, when I see a spike in traffic that usually means a nation has discovered the site. Right now, it is South Africa.
Thank you, South Africa! Stay safe!
If you are a person starting out with Drones, there are many things to know. Some will be simply how to fly a drone safely and legally, while others may need help with getting their Part 107 designation (for the non-USA people, this is the USA Commercial License), as well as photography tips. Here are some good Facebook groups you can go to. Some are lighthearted, but still offer good advice, while others are specific towards photography, the Part 107, airspace, etc. Click on highlighted text for the group.
Mad for Multi-Rotors – A good social group.
Drone Pilot Profits – A group dedicated toward the business side.
DJI Drone Photography – Assistance with photography, but obviously focused on DJI drones.
UAV Airspace Classification Discussion – A specific site where you can ask questions about airspace rules. For the Part 107, this is critical.
Drone Days – Another good social group, where beginners and experienced pilots can discuss and post their questions, photos, videos.
UAV Drone Aerial HD Photo & Video Gallery – Another group based more on photo and video, but not brand specific.
Feel free to reply to this post with groups or webpages you think are helpful, and I will amend this post. Note – I will screen all replies first to ensure the websites are appropriate. Be patient as I have a day job, but I will post all good sites.
A massive spike in traffic from Vietnam!
Keep the people safe, and let me know if there is something you need!
Literally twice the traffic of a normal day. Much came from the USA, which is understandable as most of the content is from OSHA and various state plans. But the other chunk was Namibia.
Namibia – Unity, Liberty, Justice. And safety!
I promise I will never have that pop up on my page.
You are welcome.
I got a click from the Vatican. I am not saying it was The Pope…but I am not saying that it wasn’t either (honestly I have no idea).
