What You Need to Know about OSHA’s 10-Hour Training? There are a whole lot of things to know about safety on the job in both construction and general industry. This is why the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is very strict in making sure that workers (especially new ones) get the orientation, training, and education they need with regards to safety while on the job. What is the OSHA 10-Hour Training Program? The OSHA 10-Hour Outreach Training Program is OSHA’s primary way to train workers in the basics of occupational safety and health. The OSHA 10-Hour Outreach Training Programs were developed by the OSHA Training Institute with the intent to assist employers in training and introducing employees to the basic practices of identifying, reducing, eliminating, and reporting hazards associated with their work. Is there a difference between the 10/30 Training for General Industry and Construction? Yes. There are different courses and topics covered under the Construction & General Industry respectively. Click General Industry or Construction for the course description. So what is there to know about the 10-Hour Training Program for Construction? The OSHA 10-Hour Training Program for Construction is designed for construction workers, foremen, job supervisors, and anyone involved in the construction industry. OSHA recommends Outreach Training Program courses as an orientation to occupational safety and health for workers covered by OSHA 29 CFR 1926. Workers must receive additional training, when required by OSHA standards, on the specific hazards of the job. Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive an OSHA 10-Hour Construction Outreach DOL course completion card within 4-6 weeks. In a nutshell, this course is designed for construction workers as an ideal orientation to those who are new to the industry and as a refresher to those who have been working in the industry of the hazards associated with their work. How about the 10-Hour Training Program for General Industry? The OSHA 10-Hour Training Program for General industry is ideally for supervisors with safety and health responsibilities as well as for employee safety and health awareness.

Employee Training Deadline Dec 1, 2013 for OSHA HazComm Revision

5/3/2013 10:23:00 AM by American Construction Safety Solutions Llc

Bob Pope CHST. Employers face a compliance deadline under OSHA's revised Hazard Communication (HazComm) Standard. OSHA has adopted the Global Harmonization System (GHS) for the classifying and labeling of chemicals. All employees must be trained on the OSHA HCS revisions by December 1, 2013. The OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) is aligning with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). This revision to the OSHA HCS is intended to provide a unified system of classifying chemicals and communicating hazard information on labels and safety data sheets. The GHS improves the uniformity of hazard information in the workplace and provide easily understandable information on the handling and safe use of hazardous chemicals. Key changes include labeling requirements and the use of universal pictograms to readily identify hazards. MSDS's will be changed over to SDS's but essentially contain the same hazard information in a universal GHS format. OSHA has provided information on this HCS transition at http://www.osha.gov/dsg/hazcom/index.html. The effective dates for the revised OSHA HCS can be found at: http://www.osha.gov/dsg/hazcom/effectivedates.html American Construction Safety Solutions LLC, working with United Alliance Services Corporation. can provide assistance in GHS training to meet the Dec 1, 2013 compliance deadline across the construction & general industries. United Alliance Services Corporation is a Woman Business Enterprise certified small business providing comprehensive safety services in ME, NH, VT, NY, MA, RI, CT, NJ, DE, PA, MD and DC. Our services include workplace health and safety training, facility safety inspections, OSHA inspection-related assistance, written health and safety programs, insurance loss control evaluations, construction safety consulting, EPA, DOT and DOS compliance auditing and sampling, and full-time project safety management. Contact Bob Pope CHST at 860-912-7622 or bpope@unitedallianceservices.com to help ensure your company gets in compliance with the right OSHA HCS training information or for other safety services inquiries.

evaluating & measuring jobsite safety performance

5/13/2013 10:15:00 PM by American Construction Safety Solutions Llc

Bob Pope CHST. It can be difficult for construction companies to measure and evaluate jobsite safety performance. What is needed is a way to take physical observations, convert them into numerical data that can be tabulated to provide that measurement & evaluation. United Alliance Services Corp. (UASC) can provide the way. With our exclusive Safety Tracking System (STS) construction companies in MA, CT, RI, NY, NYC & NJ can get that measurement & evaluation as a deliverable with all jobsite safety services. The most important thing to consider with any data is the intended use of the data? In this STS, the specific intended use of the data is to establish a safety trend and measure it on an ongoing basis to better identify: The direction in which safety is trending The at-risk behaviors & conditions Where the next injury is likely to occur; and A prediction of imminence In simplest terms, the intended use of the STS output data is to help establish future risk in order to better prevent injuries, minimize losses and lower the EMR & WC Premiums. As with any measurement tool, the STS output data is only as reliable as the quantity & quality of input data. The amount of quality numerical data in each data point and the frequency of the data reporting shape the reliability of the STS output data. Simple STS output data reliability comparison: Company A services are for one jobsite safety evaluation a month on six jobsites. At the end of each cumulative month Company A will have one data point and a safety trend from 6 jobsite safety evaluations. Over three cumulative months Company A will have three data points and a safety trend from 18 jobsite safety evaluations. Company B services are for one jobsite safety evaluation bi-weekly on six jobsites. At the end of each cumulative month Company B will have two data points and a safety trend from 12 jobsite safety evaluations. Over three cumulative months Company B will have six data points and a safety trend from 36 jobsite safety evaluations. Company C services are for one jobsite safety evaluation a week on six jobsites. At the end of each cumulative month Company C will have four data points and a safety trend from 24 jobsite safety evaluations. Over three cumulative months Company C will have twelve data points and a safety trend from 72 jobsite safety evaluations. At the end of the three months each Company will have one cumulative safety trend data point. Theoretically they could all be the same number, but Company C data will be most reliable and gives the best measurement & evaluation of jobsite safety performance because of the quantity of quality input data. For reliability of the output data in first establishing the STS it is recommended that there is, at minimum, one jobsite safety evaluation per average ongoing jobsites (month-to-month). It takes three data points to establish a safety trend line. Once the safety trend line is established the service is re-evaluated and is typically tailed off over time as the improvement is observed in the data, eventually to just a semi-annual "check-up". UASC also offers Annual Safety Compliance Program packages with the STS included as a deliverable. For more details on our Safety Tracking System and jobsite safety services or for more information on the Annual Safety Compliance Program packages please contact UASC at 877-399-1698 or safetysolutions@unitedallianceservices.com To reach Bob Pope, CHST directly, please call: 860-912-7622 or email to bpope@unitedallianceservices.com.

OSHA inspection and citation process; mitigation & representation

4/27/2013 12:31:00 AM by American Construction Safety Solutions Llc

Bob Pope CHST. Construction companies without a safety professional on staff put themselves at-risk with an OSHA inspection and citation process. OSHA Compliance Safety and Health Officers (CSHO’s) are required to follow established rules & requirements within the OSHA Field Operations Manual (FOM). This manual covers 16 chapters with 289 pages. Without a safety professional on staff who is well versed with OSHA’s FOM, “someone” within the company would have to be responsible to know this manual; its rules & requirements. Don’t think for one second that OSHA will have any sympathy for a lack of adherence to the OSHA Standards or knowledge in the FOM; nor will they be lenient or necessarily give your company a "break". Construction companies in MA, CT, RI, NY, NYC and NJ can have experienced representation and peace of mind during an OSHA Inspection & Citation process with United Alliance Services Corp. The best time for UASC to intercede in the process is during the inspection itself. OSHA will delay an inspection for a reasonable time, if requested, for management representation to get there. If you go it alone we recommend that your site representative keep note of everything the CSHO writes down and says. Take photos of everything the CSHO takes a photo of. The CSHO does not issue citations; he/she merely collects the information. Correct everything the CSHO identifies immediately, whether it is a violation or not, as it demonstrates what OSHA calls "good faith effort". Let the CSHO see you actually doing the corrections as the inspection proceeds. Respectfully keep the CSHO moving on a "walkthrough". Don't be afraid to discuss any difference in your interpretation of any OSHA standard in a respectful manner. The idea here is, if you can put any doubt in their mind, you may keep the finding from being recorded and from ever getting to citation process. There should be an opening conference and, more importantly for you, a closing conference. At the closing conference you will get a clearer idea of which citations to expect and you can see it as a second opportunity to discuss any difference in your interpretation of any OSHA standard with the CSHO. Through this closing conference dialog with the CSHO your goal is getting knowledge from the CSHO about potential citations and it is your last opportunity to demonstrate a “good faith effort” to the CSHO, that perhaps the CSHO will not include the finding in his/her report to the area director. Within 6 months you can expect to receive a citation from the Area OSHA Office. If you do not get a Citation in 6 months check the OSHA website Inspection Data pages to see if the inspection has been posted and closed without citation. If there is no citation, you typically get no notification. If there is a citation, UASC can consult with you on how to best present your company at an informal conference. You only have 15 days in which to request an informal conference. At the informal conference OSHA gives employers the opportunity to show cause to mitigate the citation. United Alliance Services can and will represent you at an informal conference. Too often companies take the initial offer from the Area Director to reduce the penalty. This penalty reduction is a typical offer to most any company that comes to an informal conference. Settling on the penalty reduction alone leaves your company exposed to the citation itself, which is retained for 3 years. In the event that you "repeat" that violation in those 3 years the penalty can increase 10 fold and the citation is upgraded. Now you’re teetering on a Willful Violation for the remainder of those 3 years! The real challenge at an informal conference is not to get a typical penalty reduction, but to get a citation reclassification or deletion with maximum penalty reductions. It is best to get in front of any citation at the earliest stages. Consult UASC. Our experienced staff has been through dozens of OSHA inspections and informal conferences and stays up-to-date with ALL OSHA directives and initiatives. Our experienced staff can be reached at 877-399-1698 or via email at safetysolutions@unitedallianceservices.com You can reach me directly at: 860-912-7622 or bpope@unitedallianceservices.com You can also see the website at www.acsafety.org
