OSHA and the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) have renewed an Alliance aimed at promoting best practices for reducing and preventing worker exposures to health and physical hazards.
Adapted from the book “Wind Power: Renewable Energy for Home, Farm, and Business,” by Paul Gipe, the information here advises everyone who works with wind energy, or who contemplates working with wind energy, to carefully weigh their actions.
Workers who erect and maintain wind turbines can be exposed to fall hazards, according to OSHA.
In 2010, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported that fatal work injuries involving falls decreased 2 percent in 2010 (from 645 in 2009 to 635 in 2010).
OSHA has recently cited Buford, Ga.-based Maga Construction Inc. with 12 serious violations for exposing workers to fall hazards and other safety violations at a San Antonio work site.
OSHA has released additional details about its revised Hazard Communication Standard -- announced this week -- which will bring the U.S. in alignment with the United Nations' Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals.
OSHA has cited janitorial services company ServiceMaster Clean with one willful and four serious safety violations for failing to protect workers from lead exposure and other hazards while they were contracted to clean an indoor firing range in Lancaster.
This standard establishes the elements and activities for pre-project and pre-task safety and health planning in construction.
