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.

It also provides specific guidance on respirator selection, fit testing, hazard evaluation and medical evaluation.
