OSHA’s Field Manuals – Download Free, Here!

OSHA publishes their field manuals, plus items called ‘CPL’s.’  CPL (short for ‘compliance’) documents are the actual guidelines that OSHA uses when performing inspections.  No, really.

Some of these are very long and involved, but if you want to know what OSHA will look for on your job, look here.  I have no posted all of them, but here is a sample.  To get the rest, go to http://www.osha.gov and do a search for “CPL.”

OSHA has two interesting presentations – The first is on WHY you need to have a safe resident handling program, and the second is implementing a safe resident handling program.  For you consultant’s out there, the first can be used to sell the idea.  Obviously most of us already realize it is important.
