So if you have no clue, or need a guide on what OSHA actually wants, they have these nifty tools that can help. These cover General Industry, Construction, and Healthcare. Being OSHA compliant is not the ‘end all’ (remember, OSHA is the minimum you should do), but it is a good place to start.
OSHA has published it’s new rule for Silica. This rule will help to set standards to protect workers that are exposed to crystalline silica. Construction workers cutting block, working with concrete – this is for you.
No really – this is from North Carolina OSHA. A huge amount of safety programs covering nearly everything. This time I don’t expect you to download everything – just as much as you really need. Have fun.
Dealing with a variety of subjects – construction related.
Note – these are not government designed, but although copyrighted, I am posting this statement from the site for any who are concerned:
“Feel free to download and use any of these toolbox talks. They are available in doc or pdf format. The doc format can be edited but if you are not comfortable with the editable form download the pdf. I will be adding new ones from time to time so if you don’t find what you want, check back later.”
These are actually by OSHA, so a bit old, and a little dry – however, they can be modified as needed, updated, made more interesting, personalized, etc. These are for the OSHA 10 and 30 hour construction program. You will see two documents for each subject (sorry for not renaming them like I normally do, but there were a lot of files and I had laundry and ironing) – one is a powerpoint, and the other is a lesson guide. As such, these are good even if you are weak on a subject.
Oh – here is a previous link to the Intro to OSHA, plus Focus Four presentations:
These are PowerPoint presentations concerning the most frequently cited standards by OSHA. There are three good things about these – first, they are as of 2013, so up to date. Second, they break down citations by each sub part, so this is applicable to anyone. Third, there are three presentations, broken down by construction, general industry, and maritime – so factory workers do not need to know about scaffolds, for example.
