The good folks at OSHA have been busy. They’ve got one new rule coming soon and four updated rules coming right after that. Makes me feel lazy in comparison. Let’s see what they’ve been up to.
Confined Spaces in Construction. Check our Confined Spaces in Construction post for more information about this one, which OSHA says they’ll publish in August. This standard has been in the works for a looooong time. It will be interesting to see if this really goes into effect and, if it does, how smooth or bumpy the process is for those in the field. We’d love to hear your thoughts and comments about this!
Stay tuned for more information on each of these updated and new OSHA rules. We’ll publish a separate article as each arrives. Plus, we’ll be creating a handy guide to injury/illness reporting that will include a peek at OSHA’s online reporting interface. That should be interesting.
