Description: OSHA’s Little Rock Area Office and Arkansas Consultation Program will host the inaugural Arkansas Amputation Prevention Stand-Down to help raise awareness about amputation hazards and drive down the number of amputations occurring at worksites. Approximately 5,000 workers are expected to be reached at more than 15 stand-downs across the state. Employers will stop work and have “toolbox talks” on topics such as lockout/tagout. The meetings will also provide information to workers about amputation hazards and protective measures, such as machine safeguarding, pullback devices, restraints, and two-hand controls. During the two-week period, employers will also conduct employee training and find and fix amputation hazards.
Date: Sept. 14 – 29, 2015
Time: 1 - 4:30 p.m.
Location: Various worksites across Arkansas
