Access to Medical Records

1910.1020(a) -The purpose of this course is to explain to employees and their designated representatives a right of access to relevant exposure and medical records; and to provide representatives of the Assistant Secretary a right of access to these

records in order to fulfill responsibilities under the Occupational Safety and Health Act.

Accident Investigation

Thousands of accidents occur throughout the United States every day. The failure of people, equipment, supplies, or surroundings to behave or react as expected causes most of them. Accident investigations determine how and why these failures occur. By using the information gained through an investigation, a similar, or perhaps more disastrous, accident may be prevented. It is important to conduct accident investigations with prevention in mind. There are currently no specific standards for accident investigation.

Back Safety

Back injuries can be extremely painful and long-lasting. OSHA reports that "back strain due to overexertion represents one of the largest segments of employee injuries in the American workplace. Only the common cold accounts for more lost days of work." The National Safety Council has stated that overexertion is the cause of about 31 percent of all disabling work injuries. It's important to know what types of acts are likely to cause back strain and how to work in ways to reduce the risk.

Basic Company Policies

Unlawful harassment is a form of discrimination that violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and other federal authority. Unwelcome verbal or physical conduct based on race, color, religion, sex (whether or not of a sexual nature and including same-gender harassment and gender identity harassment), national origin, age (40 and over), disability (mental or physical), sexual orientation, or retaliation (sometimes collectively referred to as “legally protected characteristics”) can constitute harassment.

Behavioral Based Safety Basics

SINCE it first rose to popularity in the early 1990s, behavior-based safety (BBS) has become an established and widely respected tool for safety improvement. While not without its critics, BBS has clearly had its successes, among them introducing new tools that allow greater precision in making improvements in safety systems and equipment. As BBS continues to evolve as an EH&S tool, many are now asking how to build on the approach for even greater effectiveness in safety management. What does the future of BBS hold for organizations currently using it, and how does the experience of the past 20 years inform our approach to EH&S going forward?

Working with Benzene

Benzene is a component of products derived from coal and petroleum and is found in gasoline and other fuels. Benzene is used in the manufacture of plastics, detergents, pesticides, and other chemicals. Research has shown benzene to be a carcinogen (cancer-causing). With exposures from less than five years to more than 30 years, individuals have developed, and died from, leukemia. Long-term exposure may affect bone marrow and blood production. Short-term exposure to high levels of benzene can cause drowsiness, dizziness, unconsciousness, and death.

Blood borne Pathogens

1910.1030 - Blood borne Pathogens: The OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens standard (29 CFR 1910.1030) requires employers to eliminate, or at least minimize, the hazards of occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens. The standard requires employers of workers at risk of occupational exposure to blood or OPIM to develop a written Bloodborne Pathogen Exposure Control Plan. In addition, such employers must implement a combination of safety measures including engineering and work practice controls, personal protective equipment, employee training, and offering potentially exposed workers the vaccination against hepatitis B.

Carcinogens

1910.1003 - Carcinogens - Millions of U.S. workers are exposed to chemical materials that could be carcinogenic. If any of your workers are in this group, train them to take these steps to protect themselves from carcinogen exposure.

Cold Weather Safety

Cold Weather Safety - When winter is locked in around us, OSHA and other experts offers tips on things an employer can do to protect workers from cold weather. But given that you can’t monitor everyone all the time, there’s only so much the organization can do in any safety situation. In the end, the responsibility for safety always falls on the individual worker. --Understand the risks of cold weather. Among the most serious are frostbite and hypothermia. --Know when these threats may be affecting you. For frostbite, that means feeling cold, then numb, with tingling, aching or brief pain. Frostbitten skin also may appear white or grayish, and may blister. Hypothermia is signaled by chills, shivering, and feelings of drowsiness and confusion.

Confined Spaces

1910.146 -Confined Space:Understanding and applying OSHA standards is at the heart of any safety and health program. This white paper is a review of permit-required confined space (29 CFR 1910.146), a widely applied and frequently cited standard. The article aims to provide a helpful overview of the requirements, as well as some compliance tips to give your programs a boost, or to help you get one off the ground. There's nothing new about confined spaces or their hazards. In Roman times, the emperor Trajan sentenced criminals to clean sewers, an occupation known to be particularly dangerous

Crane Safety

Crane, Derrick, and Hoist Safety (29 CFR 1910) - Moving large, heavy loads is crucial to today's manufacturing and construction industries. Much technology has been developed for these operations, including careful training and extensive workplace precautions. There are significant safety issues to be considered, both for the operators of the diverse "lifting" devices, and for workers in proximity to them. This page is a starting point for finding information about these devices, including elevators and conveyors, and their operation.

Driving Safety

Driving Safety - According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Table A-6. Fatal occupational injuries resulting from transportation incidents and homicides by occupation, All United States, more than 1,766 deaths a year result from occupational transportation incidents. That number is more than 38 percent of the 4,547 annual number of fatalities from occupational injuries. While fatal highway incidents remained the most frequent type of fatal work-related event, transportation incidents decreased slightly year over year, but still accounted for nearly 2 out of every 5 fatal work injuries in 2017.

Driving Skills

Driving in traffic is more than just knowing how to operate the mechanisms which control the vehicle; it requires knowing how to apply the rules of the road (which govern safe and efficient sharing with other users). An effective driver also has an intuitive understanding of the basics of vehicle handling and can drive responsibly.

Drug & Alcohol

Drug & Alcohol - The vast majority of drug users are employed, and when they arrive for work, they don't leave their problems at the door. Of the 17.2 million illicit drug users aged 18 or older in 2017, 12.9 million (74.8 percent) were employed either full or part time. Furthermore, research indicates that between 10 and 20 percent of the nation's workers who die on the job test positive for alcohol or other drugs. In fact, industries with the highest rates of drug use are the same as those at a high risk for occupational injuries, such as construction, mining, manufacturing and wholesale.

Electrical Safety - Unqualified

Electrical Safety: -STD 01-16-007: Understanding the electrical safety for unqualified workers plan at your facility is crucial to your safety. Unqualified workers, in this case, are machine operators, operators of powered industrial trucks, construction workers, and other personnel who are not specifically qualified to perform electrical work, but who need to know essential information about the hazards of electricity and how to prevent serious injury.

Emergency Plan

1910.38 - Emergency Action Plan: Having an action plan is an important part of emergency preparedness. However, merely writing one isn’t enough. You also have to make sure it is workable

Environmental Awareness

Environmental Awareness: In March 2011, EPA finalized rules to regulate emissions of air toxics, including mercury, from large industrial boilers and solid waste incinerators. EPA decided to keep the standards from going into effect, however, because we wanted to make sure the rules reflected new information and additional public comments. EPA continues to re-proposed the rules that reflect new information. EPA is committed to these standards and the significant health benefits for our children and our families.

Ergonomics

Ergonomics is the science of fitting the job to the worker doing that job. The goal of ergonomics is to reduce a worker's exposure to musculoskeletal disorder (MSD) risk factors by changing the design of a workstation or the way a job is performed, allowing workers to rotate through different jobs, or providing personal protective equipment (PPE). While the Clinton-era ergonomics standard was revoked, OSHA will cite ergonomics violations under the General Duty Clause.

Excavation, Trenching & Shoring

Trenching & Shoring - Excavating is recognized as one of the most hazardous construction operations. OSHA revised Subpart P, Excavations, of 29 CFR 1926.650, 29 CFR 1926.651, and 29 CFR 1926.652 to make the standard easier to understand, permit  the use of performance criteria where possible, and provide construction employers with options when classifying soil and selecting employee protection methods.

Eye Safety

1910.133- Eye and face protection.This eye protection safety training course will teach employees the basics of eye protection on the job, including identifying the potential work areas and activities that could cause injury to your eyes and understanding how to prevent those injuries. Also covered is the use, maintenance, and inspection of protective eyewear as well as the use of appropriate first aid for emergencies while at work.

Fall Prevention

Fall Protection: Identifying fall hazards and deciding how best to protect workers is the first step in reducing or eliminating fall hazards.

Occupational fatalities caused by falls remain a serious public health problem. The US Department of Labor (DOL) lists falls as one of the leading causes of traumatic occupational death, accounting for eight percent of all occupational fatalities from trauma. Any time a worker is at a height of four feet or more, the worker is at risk and needs to be protected. Fall protection must be provided at four feet in general industry, five feet in maritime and six feet in construction. However, regardless of the fall distance, fall protection must be provided when working over dangerous equipment and machinery.

Fire Prevention & Safety

1910.39 -Fire safety is important business. National Fire Prevention Week is intended to focus on the importance of fire safety in the home, in schools and at work. But workplace fire safety is the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) principal focus and saving lives and preventing injuries due to fire is a key concern. Of the more than 5,000 persons who lost their lives due to fires in 2017, the National Safety Council estimates 360 were workplace deaths. When OSHA conducts workplace inspections, it checks to see whether employers are complying with OSHA standards for fire safety. OSHA standards require employers to provide proper exits, fire fighting equipment, emergency plans, and employee training to prevent fire deaths and injuries in the workplace.

First Aid

1910.151 - First aid includes any one-time treatment and follow-up for observation of minor injuries, including cuts, abrasions, bruises, first-degree burns, sprains, and splinters. Injuries or illnesses requiring only first aid are commonplace. One or more workers should be properly trained to administer basic first aid, including CPR. Workplaces should have a well-stocked first-aid kit and at least one or more employee assigned the responsibility for administering or coordinating first-aid treatments.

Flash Arc

Under Development

Forklift - Classroom

1910.178 - Each year, tens of thousands of injuries related to powered industrial trucks (PIT), or forklifts, occur in US workplaces. Many employees are injured when lift trucks are inadvertently driven off loading docks, lifts fall between docks and an unsecured trailer, they are struck by a lift truck, or when they fall while on elevated pallets and tines. Most incidents also involve property damage, including damage to overhead sprinklers, racking, pipes, walls, and machinery. Unfortunately, most employee injuries and property damage can be attributed to lack of safe operating procedures, lack of safety-rule enforcement, and insufficient or inadequate training.

Hand & Power Tool

Hand and power tools are a common part of our everyday lives and are present in nearly every industry. These tools help us to easily perform tasks that otherwise would be difficult or impossible. However, these simple tools can be hazardous and have the potential for causing severe injuries when used or maintained improperly. Special attention toward hand and power tool safety is necessary in order to reduce or eliminate these hazards.

Hand, Wrist & Finger

Hand Wrist & Finger - General requirements. Employers shall select and require employees to use appropriate hand protection when employees' hands are exposed to hazards such as those from skin absorption of harmful substances; severe cuts or lacerations; severe abrasions; punctures; chemical burns; thermal burns; and harmful temperature extremes.

HAZCOM – Global Harmonization Standard

GHS: The GHS is an acronym for The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and  Labeling of Chemicals. The GHS is a system for standardizing and harmonizing the classification and labeling of chemicals.

Hazard Recognition

Employers of workers engaged in construction, agriculture and maritime industries are covered by other OSHA regulations. While users in those industries might benefit from using the Adviser, it does not directly address conditions in those industries nor does it identify OSHA regulations covering those industries.

Hazcom - Your Right to Know

Hazard Communications - In order to ensure chemical safety in the workplace, information must be available about the identities and hazards of the chemicals. OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) requires the development and dissemination of such information: Chemical manufacturers and importers are required to evaluate the hazards of the chemicals they produce or import, and Prepare labels and material safety data sheets (MSDSs) to convey the hazard information to their downstream customers. All employers with hazardous chemicals in their workplaces must have labels and MSDSs for their exposed workers, and train them to handle the chemicals appropriately.

HazMat

HazMat - The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires all employees who potentially will work around or be exposed to hazardous materials (Hazmat) be trained before they begin working. Training includes an explanation of the hazards, how to handle hazardous materials, how to use personal protective equipment (PPE), how to minimize risks from hazards and medical surveillance requirements (monitoring and recognition of exposure symptoms). To aid trainers, OSHA has provided Publication 2254, Training Requirements in OSHA Standards and Training Guidelines.

Hearing Conservation & Safety [Noise Exposure]

Hearing Conservation - Every year, approximately 30 million people in the United States are occupationally exposed to hazardous noise. Noise-related hearing loss has been listed as one of the most prevalent occupational health concerns in the United States for more than 25 years. Thousands of workers every year suffer from preventable hearing loss due to high workplace noise levels.  

Heat Exhaustion [Stress]

Heat Exhaustion (Stress) - Operations involving high air temperatures, radiant heat sources, high humidity, direct physical contact with hot objects, or strenuous physical activities have a high potential for inducing heat stress in employees engaged in such operations. Such places include: iron and steel foundries, nonferrous foundries, brickfiring and ceramic plants, glass   products facilities, rubber products factories, electrical utilities (particularly boiler rooms), bakeries, confectioneries, commercial kitchens, laundries, food canneries, chemical plants, mining sites, smelters, and steam tunnels.

Hot Work

Hot Work - Hot work is any work that involves burning, welding, using fire- or spark producing tools, or that produces a source of ignition Hydrogen Sulfide API RP 49 - H2S training is required for anyone working in the oilfield or petrochemical industry. Hydrogen Sulfide training is required for all workers involved in oil exploration, production and refining. In order to work safely around hydrogen sulfide, you must be aware of its properties and characteristics. This H2S Training program teaches how to recognize when Hydrogen Sulfide is present in the work area and take necessary precautions to work with Hydrogen Sulfide safely. This H2S training helps fulfill the training requirements of API Recommended Practice 49, ANSI Z390.1 and other regulatory standards. This employee safety training program uses comprehensive online exams assure mastery of all safety concepts in this H2S training course. Improve your H2S knowledge with this online safety training course.

Introduction to OSHA

OSHA (wiki) :The United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is an agency of the United States Department of Labor. Its mission is to prevent work-related injuries, illnesses, and occupational fatality by issuing and enforcing standards for workplace safety and health. It was also established to create a better workplace for all workers and to ensure the safety of everyone by making and enforcing certain standards that are needed to protect the people. The agency is headed by a Deputy Assistant Secretary of Labor.

Introduction to HazWoper

Introduction to HazWoper - The purpose of this unit is to give trainees a general understanding of what “HAZWOPER” means, the purpose of the OSHA HAZWOPER Standard, and the requirements associated with safety and health training and medical surveillance. At the conclusion of this unit, trainees will know what “HAZWOPER” means and the purpose of the OSHA HAZWOPER Standard. They will also have a general understanding of chemical hazards, control measures, and the basic requirements of emergency response training.

Journey Management

Planning and carrying out road transport missions safely requires a thorough understanding and strict adherence to safety rules established by an Organization. The challenge is to coordinate and monitor each step in this process so that missions are managed competently from beginning to end. JSEA In the workplace, one simple human error can lead to a severe accident or injury. It takes a trained mind to evaluate the relationship between the worker, the task, the work area, the tools, and the equipment. A job hazard analysis allows supervisors to find the potential hazards before they occur. Comprehensive job hazard analyses can not only reduce injury and illness rates, but can also save companies money in workers’ compensation costs and downtime due to accidents.

Lockout Tagout

Lockout Tagout - Approximately 3 million workers service equipment and face the greatest risk of injury if lockout/tagout is not properly implemented. Compliance with the lockout/tagout standard (29 CFR 1910.147) prevents an estimated 120 fatalities and 50,000 injuries each year. Workers injured on the job from exposure to hazardous energy lose an average of 24 workdays for recuperation. In a study conducted by the United Auto Workers (UAW), 20% of the fatalities (83 of 414) that occurred among their members between 1973 and 1995 were attributed to inadequate hazardous energy control procedures specifically, lockout/tagout procedures.

Leadership Skills

Leadership is the process of influencing others to achieve the organizational goals. Leadership is an interaction between the leader, the followers, and the situation.

Machine Guards

Machine Guards - Moving machine parts have the potential to cause severe workplace injuries, such as crushed fingers or hands, amputations, burns, or blindness. Safeguards are essential for protecting workers from these preventable injuries. Any machine part, function, or process that may cause injury must be safeguarded. When the operation of a machine or accidental contact injure the operator or others in the vicinity, the hazards must be eliminated or controlled. This page contains general information on the various hazards of mechanical motion and techniques for protecting workers.

Near Miss

Federal OSHA does not specifically require discipline for an employee who violates company safety rules or OSHA regulations. That said, OSHA does seem to encourage disciplinary enforcement of employee safety violations through programs like VPP. Some states have their own safety and health laws and enforcement agencies that may have a requirement for disciplinary action, and you should verify that in the state at issue. Also, state workers compensation laws may have a penalty (reduction of benefits) for employees who are injured as a result of violating a known, posted safety rule. This varies from state to state.

New Employee Safety Orientation

NEO: The OSHA Office of Statistics reports that 40 percent of employees injured at work have been on the job less than 1 year. New hires need to be made aware of how serious safety training is right from the start. While there is no specific requirement for new hire safety orientation, many training requirements explicitly state that training must be provided to new employees.

NORM

NORM - Under various circumstances, the radionuclides, primarily from the uranium and thorium decay series, can contaminate the environment to the extent that they pose real or potential public health risks. The investigation and regulatory control of the impacts of most of these sources have been overlooked by federal and state agencies in the past, while stringent controls were placed on X-ray and other manmade sources of radiation. This lack of strict  controls has been due, in part, to the fact that the federal government has limited jurisdiction over TENR, and control was previously left up to the states, which often times did not have adequate programs or staff to deal with the problem. TENR is a subset of a larger grouping referred to as naturally-occurring radioactive materials (NORM), Regulations to deal with NORM are being developed by a task force of the Conference of Radiation Control Program Directors (CRCPD) and have been through six drafts to date.

Occupational Health Hazards

With the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, Congress created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance.

Pinch Points

Pinch Points - The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulates workplace safety around pinch points to reduce occupational injuries. According to the OSHA definition, pinch points are points on presses and other workplace equipment where workers could get a finger or other body part caught between two moving parts. The OSHA warns that pinch points can cause severe injuries, including amputation, and regulates work practices for workers exposed to pinch points.

Portable Fire Extinguishers

Portable Fire Extinguisher: The requirements of this section apply to the placement, use, maintenance, and testing of portable fire extinguishers provided for the use of employees. Paragraph (d) of this section does not apply to extinguishers provided for employee use on the outside of workplace buildings or structures. Where extinguishers are provided but are not intended for employee use and the employer has an emergency action plan and a fire prevention plan that meet the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.38 and 29 CFR 1910.39 respectively, then only the requirements of paragraphs (e) and (f) of this section apply.

PPE & You

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) - OSHA requires the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) to reduce employee exposure to hazards when engineering and administrative controls are not feasible or effective in reducing these exposures to acceptable levels. Employers are required to determine if PPE should be used to protect their workers.

Progressive Discipline

This program explains guidelines for a Short Service Employee Program to appropriately supervise, train and monitor new experienced and inexperienced employees. This program explains guidelines for a Short Service Employee Program to appropriately supervise, train and monitor new experienced and inexperienced employees. Federal OSHA does not specifically require discipline for an employee who violates company safety rules or OSHA regulations. That said, OSHA does seem to encourage disciplinary enforcement of employee safety violations through programs like VPP. Some states have their own safety and health laws and enforcement agencies that may have a requirement for disciplinary action, and you should verify that in the state at issue. Also, state workers compensation laws may have a penalty (reduction of benefits) for employees who are injured as a result of violating a known, posted safety rule. This varies from state to state.

Respiratory Safety

Respiratory Safety - In the control of those occupational diseases caused by breathing air contaminated with harmful dusts, fogs, fumes, mists, gases, smokes, sprays, or vapors, the primary objective shall be to prevent atmospheric contamination. This shall be accomplished as far as feasible by accepted engineering control measures (for example, enclosure or confinement of the operation, general and local ventilation, and substitution of less toxic materials). When effective engineering controls are not feasible, or while they are being instituted, appropriate respirators shall be used pursuant to this section.

Return to Work

An organization's workforce is its most valuable asset. And when an employee can't work due to illness or injury, it impacts not only an organization's productivity, but also its morale.

Rigging

Rigging - The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is a U.S. government organization responsible for protecting workers' safety rights. Standards developed by OSHA are strictly enforced, with heavy financial penalties for those found not complying. Regulations are numerous in health care and manufacturing but especially stringent in the construction field, where workers face a large variety of potential hazards each day. One of the biggest dangers on the construction field is the operation of rigging equipment. Rigging involves the use of cranes and other large pieces of equipment to lift steel and other materials to upper levels of the building. This practice is heavily regulated by OSHA, and rules and regulations to construction rigging can be found in OSHA Standard 1926.

Root Cause

Thousands of accidents occur throughout the United States every day. Accident investigations determine how and why these accidents occur. By using the information gained through an investigation, a similar or perhaps more disastrous accident may be prevented. Accident investigations should always be conducted with prevention in mind. This course will introduce basic accident investigation procedures, root cause analysis, and accident analysis techniques.

Safety Attitudes & Actions

Safety Attitude - Before safety comes safety attitude. The articles here will show you how to build it, and maintain it when you do. We’ll talk motivation technique, incentives, employee contests, recognition programs, and other safety awareness methods.

Safety Housekeeping

OSHA housekeeping rules (29 CFR 1910.22) state that "all places of employment, passageways, storerooms, and service rooms should be kept clean and orderly and in a sanitary condition." The regulation makes specific mention of keeping floors clean and dry: "To facilitate cleaning, every floor, working place, and passageway shall be kept free from protruding nails, splinters, holes, or loose boards." The regulation also says that "aisles and passageways shall be kept clear and in good repair."

Safety Signs & Tags

Signs & Tags: Signs and symbols required by this subpart shall be visible at all times when work is being performed, and shall be removed or covered promptly when the hazards no longer exist.

Short Service Employee

This program explains guidelines for a Short Service Employee Program to appropriately supervise, train and monitor new experienced and inexperienced employees.

Silica

Silica Awareness: Silicosis has been a recognized disease process for over 400 years. Agricola in his Treatise on Mining, written in 1556 described a pulmonary disease afflicting stonecutters and miners and later by Ramazzini in 1713.Technological  advances in the last century, have dramatically increased the dust exposure to the worker due to the high pressure power and air equipment used to in mining, sandblasting and other industrial settings.

Slips Trips Falls

Slips Trips Falls: Although some workplace slips, trips and falls are not serious accidents, statistics show that nonfatal slips, trips and falls account for approximately 20% of all injuries involving lost workdays. In fact, According to the National Safety Council’s Accident Facts slips, trips and falls rank as the fourth leading cause of fatal injuries to American Workers!

Stairs & Ladders

Stairs & Ladders-1926.851(a) Only those stairways, passageways, and ladders, designated as means of access to the structure of a building, shall be used. Other access ways shall be entirely closed at all times. 1926.851(b) All stairs, passageways, ladders and incidental equipment thereto, which are covered by this section, shall be periodically inspected and maintained in a clean safe condition.

Stop Work

Stop Work Authority establishes the ‘authority and obligation’ of any individual to suspend a single work task or group operation when the control of HSE risk is not clearly established or understood. In general terms, the SWA process involves a stop, notify, correct and resume approach for the resolution of a perceived unsafe condition, act, error, omission, or lack of understanding that could result in a undesirable event.

Storm Water

Stormwater is water that originates during precipitation events. It may also be used to apply to water that originates with snowmelt that enters the stormwater system. Stormwater that does not soak into the ground becomes surface runoff, which either flows directly into surface waterways or is channeled into storm sewers, which eventually discharge to surface waters.

Subcontractor Management

Subcontractor Management: OSHA Challenge provides interested employers and workers the opportunity to gain assistance in improving their safety and health management systems. Challenge Administrators experienced in safety and health guide Challenge Participants through a three-stage process to implement an effective system to prevent fatalities, injuries, and illnesses. An electronic tool is provided which breaks down the actions, documentation, and results desired. Graduates of OSHA Challenge receive recognition from OSHA as they incrementally improve their safety and health management systems. OSHA Challenge is available to general industry and construction employers in the private and public sectors under OSHA's federal jurisdiction.

Warehouse Safety

The safety program at many companies focuses on the manufacturing or production areas because of the heavy use of machinery, equipment, chemical use, etc., and the hazards of the warehouse area may seem to be less important.

Welding & Brazing

Welding & Brazing - Welding, cutting, and brazing are hazardous activities that pose a unique combination of both safety and health risks to more than 500,000 workers in a wide variety of industries. The risk from fatal injuries alone is more than four deaths per thousand workers over a working lifetime.

Workplace Violence

Workplace violence is any act or threat of physical violence, harassment, intimidation, or other threatening disruptive behavior that occurs at the work site. It ranges from threats and verbal abuse to physical assaults and even homicide. It can affect and involve employees, clients, customers and visitors. Homicide is currently the fourthleading cause of fatal occupational  injuries in the United States. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI), of the 4,547 fatal workplace injuries that occurred in the United States in 2010, 506 were workplace homicides. Homicide is the leading cause of death for women in the workplace.

Walking Working Surfaces

Walking Working Surfaces: Slips, trips, and falls constitute the majority of general industry accidents. They cause 15% of all accidental deaths, and are second only to motor vehicles as a cause of fatalities. The OSHA standards for walking/working surfaces apply to all permanent places of employment, except where only domestic, mining, or agricultural work is performed.
