Are you violating OSHA standards? Share your thoughts with us!
Everyone these days operating in the Construction field knows about OSHA, but are you really familiar with the violations you should keep away from? Each year, large amount of dollars are spent by popular companies on penalties put upon them by OSHA for violating the guiding principle and standards also for OSHA training. Recently Disney Land had to pay huge amount on the same!! So, are ready to have OSHA inspect you? Are you 100% in line with the standards…..let’s see.
Here is a list of the most common citations in the Construction industry:
Wiring methods, components, and equipment for general use.
Requirements for protective systems.
Fall protection systems criteria and practices.
General safety and health provisions.
Safety training and education.
Eye and face protection.
Wiring design and protection.
Criteria for personal protective equipment.
Cranes and derricks.
Now the question is..How to stay away from these violations? The most significant feature is to have your staff properly educated for OSHA training and OSHA certification. Each of the above mentioned violations or field of operations needs particular OSHA training and OSHA certification. Some are under OSHA training for health like Asbestos, and some under Hazardous waste training, like 40 Hazwoper training.
How OSHA training does affect your OSHA credits?? That is because of two vital things; first OSHA checks that the employees working in a particular area have the proper training certificate for that, Second, if the workers are properly trained they will know safety guidelines and how to perform in the work surroundings in line with safety and health rule, this will automatically lessen your probability for violations and penalties.
The other important part is to utilize the right and safe resources and equipment when working in the field. The machines ought to be properly oiled and checked for unfastened fittings before starting an operation. The electric wiring should be properly roofed and earthed. Proper usage of stairways and ladders. Here again the significance of OSHA training cannot be overlooked. If someone doesn’t have proper OSHA training on how to use stairways & ladders or work in confined spaces, we cannot expect them to use the right equipment.
Another important tip to keep in mind is record keeping and human resource management. A complete documentation of the health conditions of all the staff should be kept saved in order to make use of it in case of insurance claim. Also if a worker gets sick, his past record will help you justify the condition in front of OSHA.
So, there we go….OSHA training, OSHA certification, record keeping, proper equipment….well there is more to cover….but next time. I will appreciate if you share you OSHA training or OSHA inspection experience with us, or just let me know if I haven’t covered something really important.

Beware the companies that claim you get "osha certification" for taking their courses. Get the facts at http://www.osha-certifications.com , and do not be mislead again.
