What is OSHA?
  • The Occupational Safety and Health Administration
    (OSHA) is the inspection and enforcement agency
    for occupational safety and health, and is a part
    of the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL).

  • In 1970 President Richard Nixon, created the
    Occupational Safety and Health Act, which created
    OSHA as an inspection and enforcement agency for
    worker safety in the United States.

Why was OSHA created?
  • As a result to the federal government's concern
    for worker safety due to injury and death.
  • To assure, as possible, safe and healthful work
    conditions for every working man and woman in the
    nation and to preserve our human resources.

Who is covered by OSHA?
  • The Act extends to all employers and employees in
    all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto
    Rico and all other territories under federal
    government jurisdiction.

Employer/Employee Relationship
  • Employer as defined by OSHA Any person in a
    business affecting commerce who has one or more
    employees, paid or unpaid.
  • Employee as defined by OSHA Anyone who works
    on behalf of an employer, whether paid or unpaid.
  • Employer-employee relationship as defined by
    OSHA The employer is determined more by who
    supervises the work than who pays the employee.

Multi-Employer Work Sites and Contractors
  • Who is responsible?
  • The employer who exposes workers to hazard.
  • The employer who actually created the hazards.

Multi-Employer Work Sites and ContractorsWho is
responsible for Safety?
  • The employer who was responsible, by contract or
    through actual practice, for safety and health
    conditions on the work site, i.e., the employer
    who had the authority for ensuring that the
    hazardous condition is corrected (controlling).
  • The employer who had the responsibility for
    actually correcting the hazard (correcting).

OSHA StandardsWhere are they found?
  • The Federal Register is published for Congress
    and carries proposed and final drafts of
  • Each year the Government Printing Office compiles
    all new and modified legislation and assembles
    existing laws into a guide book called the Code
    of Federal Regulations (CFR).

OSHA StandardsWhere are they found?
  • The U.S Department of Labor occupies Title 29 of
    the Code of Federal Regulations or 29CFR.
  • OSHA is found in 29 CFR in Parts 1900-1999.
  • OSHA Standards are divided into five categories.

CFR 1910General Industry Standard
  • Applies to Goodwill and nearly all industries.
  • CFR 1910 Section 5, (a)(1) General Duty Clause
  • Every employer shall furnish to each of his
    employees, employment and a place of employment
    which is free from recognized hazards that are
    causing or are likely to cause death or serious
    physical harm to his employees

General Duty Clause Cont.
  • Section 5(b) of The General Duty Clause further
    mandates all employers shall comply with the
    occupational safety and health standards.
  • OSHA can issue citations and penalize employers
    who fail to provide a safe and healthful
    workplace for its employees.

OSHA Standards alignment to NISH, CARF and DARS
  • NISH, CARF and DARS provide accrediadation for
    employers who hire those with barriers to
  • NISH, CARF and DARS standards align with OSHA
    Standards. How?
  • All require employers to establish health and
    safety programs, provide training and periodic
  • Emergency plans, facility safety inspections,
    bloodborne pathogen plan, MSDS, OSHA 300 Logs,
    building occupancy and local fire code compliance
    are some of the requirements Goodwill must meet
    to receive accreditation from these agencies.

Bloodborne Pathogens Plan
  • Bloodborne Pathogens pathogenic microorganisms
    that are present in human blood and can cause
    disease in humans. These pathogens include, but
    are not limited to, hepatitis B virus (HBV) and
    human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

  • OSHA 29CFR 1910.1030(b)

Bloodborne Pathogen Standard 29CFR 1910.1030
  • Purpose To limit exposure to blood and other
    potentially infectious materials, (Hepatitis B,
    C, HIV) that could lead to disease or death.
  • Scope Covers all employees who could be
    reasonably anticipated as the result of
    performing their job duties, to face contact with
    blood and other potentially infectious materials.
  • Employees should be trained initially on
    employment and annually when changes occur.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Personal Protective Equipment29 CFR 1910.132
  • Purpose To provide employees with knowledge of
    the proper use and care of personal protective
  • PPE is used for protection of the eyes, face,
    head and extremities, to include protective
    clothing, respiratory devices, protective shields
    and barriers.

Hazard Assessment and PPE
  • Hazard Assessment The employer shall assess the
    workplace to determine if hazards are present, or
    are likely to be present, which necessitate the
    use for personal protective equipment.

Hazard Assessment and PPE
  • If such hazards are present or are likely to be
    present, the employer shall select and have each
    affected employee use the types of PPE that will
    protect the employee from the hazards identified,
    communicate selection decisions, and select PPE
    that properly fits each affected employee.
  • The employer shall verify the required workplace
    assessment has been performed.

Personal Protective Equipment General
  • PPE shall be provided, used and maintained in a
    sanitary and reliable condition whenever it is

    knowledge of the use and care of the PPE after
    training or retraining is required.
  • The employer shall verify that each affected
    employee received and understood the required
    training through written certification.

PPE Re-Training Guidelines
  • Re-training shall occur when changes in the
    workplace render previous training obsolete.
  • Changes in types of PPE to be used render
    previous training obsolete.
  • Inadequacies in an affected employees knowledge
    or use of the assigned PPE.

Hazardous Communications
Hazard Communication Standard29 CFR 1910.1200
  • Purpose Chemical safety instructions shall be
    provided to each employee who may be exposed to
    hazardous chemicals when working with hazardous
  • This standard though 20 years old, still results
    in the greatest number of state and federal
    citations and fines. Today failure to comply is a
    willful violation.

(HazCom) Plan Elements

Hazardous Energy
Control of Hazardous EnergyLockout/Tagout 29 CFR

    purpose and use of the energy control devices and
    procedures used to control stored energy.

Lockout/Tagout Training
  • Training is conducted upon hire, and prior to
    initial job assignment.
  • Whenever there is a change in machines,
    equipment or processes that present a new hazard,
    or there is a change in the energy control

Lockout/Tagout Training
  • When periodic inspections reveal or whenever the
    employer has a reason to believe there are
    deviations from or inadequacies in the employees
    knowledge or use of the energy control
  • The employer shall certify the employee training
