  • NEO: The OSHA Office of Statistics reports that 40 percent of employees injured at work have been on the job less than 1 year. New hires need to be made aware of how serious safety training is right from the start. While there is no specific requirement for new hire safety orientation, many training requirements explicitly state that training must be provided to new employees.

  • Lockout Tagout - Approximately 3 million workers service equipment and face the greatest risk of injury if lockout/tagout is not properly implemented. Compliance with the lockout/tagout standard (29 CFR 1910.147) prevents an estimated 120 fatalities and 50,000 injuries each year. Workers injured on the job from exposure to hazardous energy lose an average of 24 workdays for recuperation. In a study conducted by the United Auto Workers (UAW), 20% of the fatalities (83 of 414) that occurred among their members between 1973 and 1995 were attributed to inadequate hazardous energy control procedures specifically, lockout/tagout procedures.

  • GHS: The GHS is an acronym for The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. The GHS is a system for standardizing and harmonizing the classification and labeling of chemicals.
