CCH Offers One-stop OSHA Compliance Tools for General Industry, Construction
(RIVERWOODS, ILL., March 12, 2007) – Now, professionals can avoid serious workplace errors, fines and penalties with new editions of two popular handbooks for general industry and construction by CCH, a leading provider of safety law information and software. CCH is part of Wolters Kluwer Law and Business. Available in both print and CD-ROM are Occupational Safety and Health Standards for General Industry and Occupational Safety and Health Standards for the Construction Industry.
The 2007 editions offer convenient access to the most recent and complete set of applicable Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards and all amendments as of January 2007, including the latest OSHA interpretation letters.
“With more than 4 million workplace injuries and illnesses recorded in the private sector, companies need to maintain and keep abreast of all OSHA requirements to ensure critical issues are addressed before they become a problem,” said Lauren Shohet Weiser, CCH safety product manager.
Both handbooks contain up-to-date, expert information presented in an easy-to-read format that professionals can use as a desktop reference or on-site. Important topics covered include:
- Section 1903 regulations on inspections, citations and proposed penalties;
- Section 1904 regulations covering recording and reporting of occupational injuries and illnesses;
- Section 1990 carcinogen policy and model standards; and
- Section 5(a) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (the “General Duty” clause).
Occupational Safety and Health Standards for General Industry includes the full text of regulations contained in the official federal government version (29 CFR Part 1910); recent amendments, additions and other changes to the OSHA standards; as well as useful tools for employers, including:
- Current lists of local and regional emphasis programs;
- Revised OSHA respiratory protection standards;
- Changes to the hexavalent chromium agreement and corrections to the hexavalent chromium standard;
- Guidance document training tips; and
- Interpretation letters on topics ranging from volunteer coverage to hospital safety and even handrail usage.
The Occupational Safety and Health Standards for the Construction Industry is an informative resource for construction safety information and includes the full text of regulations contained in the official federal government version (29 CFR Part 1926) plus cross-references to the corresponding sections of the Part 1910 general industry standards.
This handbook features sections addressing recent clarifications on roll-over protective structures; revisions to the respiratory protection standard; corrections to hexavalent chromium; local emphasis program listings and much more.
