REVISED OSHA PUBS OFFER LATEST INSIGHT INTO EXISTING STANDARDS

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recently revised three publications offering guidance to employers and workers concerning current health and safety standards.

Construction Industry Digest (OSHA 2202) is available for $2.25 per copy through the Government Printing Office. This edition includes a new Inspection Guideline Form, the Fall Protection Standard and revisions to the Diving Standard.

A free copy of Fall Protection in Construction (OSHA 3146) is available through the OSHA Publications Office. It outlines the requirements of the standard, as well as details concerning the different types of compliance assistance available from OSHA.

Respiratory Protection (OSHA 3079) also is free through the OSHA Publications Office. This booklet clarifies key provisions of the respirator protection standard, which was revised in January 1998. It also provides specific guidance on respirator selection, fit testing, hazard evaluation and medical evaluation.

OSHA plans to post all three of the publications on its Web site -- http://www.osha.gov
