NEW OSHA CD-ROM PROVIDES VIRTUAL SNAPSHOT OF WEB SITE

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recently released its latest quarterly CD-ROM, which introduces a major enhancement that provides a virtual snapshot of its Web site.

The CD-ROM contains most of the information, except inspection data, available on the OSHA Web site, (www.osha.gov) through March 12, 1998. With the Web browser software included, users can access material in the same manner as on the Internet.

This version incorporates a home page similar to the new OSHA site. An alphabetical "Index" provides an easy means to locate information; it replaces the "Contents" button available on previous releases. A "Search" option that provides full-text searching across all documents and information on the CD-ROM also is available.

Web links, or Universal Resource Locator (URL) addresses, are included to access inspection data and other content not available directly in this version, as well as links to specific safety and health information from other Web sites. With an Internet connection, the software provides users with direct access to these URLs.

The version, entitled OSHA Regulations, Documents & Technical Information on CD-ROM, is available through the Government Printing Office as a one-year subscription (four quarterly releases) for $43 per year. Single copies may be obtained for $17. The stock number is 729-013-00000-5. To place an order by telephone, call (202) 512-1800. For fax orders, dial (202) 512-2250.

The CD-ROM can be used with Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Windows NT or Macintosh 7.5 and up. The minimum configuration is a 486 PC with 16 megabytes of RAM.

Installation and user instructions, along with a description of the software contents, are included in a small booklet inside the case. Additional technical support is available through OSHA's CD-ROM help desk at (801) 487-0680.
