CalOSHA – Scaffold Guides and Confined Spaces

I had a request for CalOSHA Stuff, so I looked around and sure enough – there is a good amount.  For Non-California viewers and international types (you know who you are) – The USA has the federal OSHA, but the states can opt out of the federal OSHA plan as long as their regulations are as strong, or stronger, than the federal OSHA.  Hence, this stuff is at least as good as what OSHA requires.

Below are materials on scaffolds:

Ergonomics Guide – Non-Powered Tools – English and Spanish

Very interesting guide by CalOSHA on selecting non-powered tools and considering ergonomics. This guide includes handles, grip, motion, and a range of other factors.

 

Think hard about this guide – we focus on powered tools, vibration, torque, and other factors, but for using non-powered tools requires all manual power.  Think about assembling something from IKEA with standard screw drivers – then, multiply that by 8 hours a day, 5 days a week.  Yes, that bad.
