Updated OSHA Compliance Tools From CCH For General Industry, Construction

General Industry Ergonomic Standards for 2000 Included

 (RIVERWOODS, ILL., April 19, 2000) – Two popular handbooks of safety standards have been updated and given a new, larger format by CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading provider of human resources, employment and safety law information and software. Now available are Occupational Safety and Health Standards for General Industry (29 CFR Part 1910) and Occupational Safety and Health Standards for the Construction Industry (29 CFR Part 1926). (1035 pages, $45.95 and 420 pages, $37.50, respectively. To order call 1-800-248-3248, or visit

The latest editions of these popular titles reflect all of the applicable Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards through February 1, 2000, including the controversial proposed ergonomic standards. And, in response to users’ interest in a larger format, the books now measure 8  inches by 11 inches.

"The larger size of the volumes, combined with larger and clearer graphics and charts, makes these books easier than ever to use at actual job sites," said Steve Slater, marketing manager for CCH’s Human Resources group. "Now, users will have more convenient access to the most recent and complete set of applicable OSHA standards so they can address 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.

Of great interest to general industry is the proposed ergonomics standard, issued late last year and due to be issued in final form before the end of 2001. The full text of the proposed standard is reproduced, allowing professionals to become familiar with rules that may eventually impact nearly two million workplaces. Other developments reflected in the 2000 edition of this 1035-page book include revised rules on ventilation and dipping and coating operations.

Construction Industry Specifics

The 2000 edition of the 420-page Occupational Safety and Health Standards for the Construction Industry benefits greatly from the change to a larger format, making it easier to use at job sites under all sorts of conditions. Regulations on inspections, citations, and proposed penalties, as well as reporting of occupational injuries and illnesses have been revised. And new special provisions for air contaminants and 1,3-Butadiene are included.
