OSHA has rolled out its "Safe and Sound Campaign" initiative, which asks employers to review their safety programs and identify areas for improvement, according to the agency.
Whether you’re driving in your neighborhood or on a busy highway, making responsible choices in work zones is essential. National Work Zone Awareness Week (April 3-7) is an annual opportunity for motorists to evaluate their driving habits just in time for the busy spring and summer construction season.
Workers may be required to work outdoors in cold environments and for extended periods and many workers may not know the signs and symptoms of cold stress, including conditions such as hypothermia, frostbite or trench foot.
Training is essential for confined spaces and the hazards that may be encountered in them. This training should stress that death to the worker is the likely outcome if proper precautions are not taken before entry is made.
OSHA standards may require that employers adopt certain practices, means, methods, or processes reasonably necessary and appropriate to protect workers on the job. Employers must comply with all applicable OSHA standards and provide workers with a workplace that does not have serious hazards.
