A great document they have (from New York) is a listing of tools AND the sound levels when in use. In other words, if you purchase tools that produce less noise, your employees (or yourself, for that matter) is protected. Here is that document:
Similar to the NIOSH Chart Book – lots of great statistics, charts, etc., focusing on all aspects of construction, including safety and injury numbers. Broken down to a high degree, and newer data than the NIOSH book.
NIOSH guide on testing for chemicals – note, this is for industrial hygiene types who will be using sampling pumps. Higher level information. Here is the description from their page:
“NMAM is a collection of methods for sampling and analysis of contaminants in workplace air, and in the blood and urine of workers who are occupationally exposed. These methods have been developed or adapted by NIOSH or its partners and have been evaluated according to established experimental protocols and performance criteria. NMAM also includes chapters on quality assurance, sampling, portable instrumentation, etc.”
NIOSH put together a very extensive book of charts on injuries in the workplace, breaking it down in every way imaginable. There is data here for nearly every way of looking at workplace injuries, the makeup of the work force, etc.
