Yesterday, if you clicked on OSHA’s web site hours after President Obama’s inaugural address you quickly found evidence of a regime change, cosmetic though it is at this point.

OSHA’s new homepage presents itself in subdued shades of blue and gray.

Prominent in the content re-organization are three sections in the homepage’s center column:

The first, “How do I?” offer links to:

Report possible hazards in the workplace Find hazards by industry or operation Find a regulation and related information Order publications Contact OSHA Submit comments on draft rulemaking Apply for a training grant Download the recordkeeping form Subscribe to RSS feeds

Following is the “In Focus” section providing links to:

Preventing Fatal Falls in Construction Enforcement Activity in FY 2008 Proposed Rules for Cranes and Derricks in Construction Workplace electrical product safety request for information (ended Jan. 20)

Finally, a “Programs & Resources” box offers the following links:
