OSHA Asbestos Advisor Now Does Windows
OSHA's popular interactive computer program to help building
owners comply with its asbestos standard now does Windows.
Asbestos Advisor, Release 2.0, is now available for downloading
to personal computers in both DOS and Windows versions on OSHA's
Internet Site (http://www.osha.gov/) under "OSHA Software/Advisors".
Release 2.0 also incorporates recent changes in the standard arising
The Windows version of Asbestos Advisor permits users to click on
highlighted keywords to access additional information. It also
lists the questions the Advisor asks users to identify their
obligations under the asbestos standard along with a user's
responses. This feature gives users a record of their interaction
with the program.
Future OSHA software advisors will focus on such topics as "safety
pays", fire fighting and emergency evacuation, lockout/tagout and
lead in construction.
