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 publicationsContact 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:
