OSHA Compliance Assistance Tools

OSHAlogo

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.

You know what to do:

General Industry

Construction

Healthcare

Dust

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.

OSHA Construction Trainers – Presentations – Download Here!

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:

Most Frequently Cited Standards – From OSHA – Free PowerPoint 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.
