CCH Provides OSHA Compliance Tools For General Industry, Construction

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., March 22, 1999) – Two popular and revised handbooks of safety standards are now available from CCH INCORPORATED, a leading provider of human resources and safety law and information. Now available are CCH Occupational Safety and Health Standards for General Industry and CCH Occupational Safety and Health Standards for the Construction Industry.

The 1999 editions of these popular titles reflect all of the applicable Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards through February 1, 1999.

When it comes to OSHA compliance, it’s been proven again and again that what you don’t know can definitely hurt you, CCH points out. Having access to the most recent and complete set of applicable OSHA standards allows companies to address all of the critical issues in their operations before injuries and illness can occur and costly fines are levied and lawsuits are filed.

General Industry Standards

In addition to setting forth the standards contained in the Code of Federal Regulation, Occupational Safety and Health Standards for General Industry helps companies ensure compliance with the many state standards that are modeled after federal OSHA requirements.

Developments reflected in the 1999 edition of this 864-page book include new or revised standards for methylene chloride, operator training for powered industrial trucks and a number of sections that were removed or revised to reduce the compliance burden on the regulated community.

Construction Industry Specifics

The 1999 edition of the 615-page Occupational Safety and Health Standards for the Construction Industry reflects a revised standard on asbestos, in conformity with an appeals court decision, as well as sections removed or revised to lessen the burden of compliance. It also includes the latest OSHA general industry standards applicable to construction.

Single copy price of Occupational Safety and Health Standards for General Industry is $42.95; Occupational Safety and Health Standards for the Construction Industry is $34.95. Quantity discounts, custom covers and school adoption pricing are available for both books.
