If you're new to the safety field, or if you've just been given safety responsibilities, making sense of your compliance responsibilities can be overwhelming! This newly updated and easy-to-read guide is your key to understanding and complying with the Title 29 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Parts 1900-1910.END. It addresses common OSHA regulations in alphabetical order and helps eliminate the regulatory circles that make compliance difficult. Filled with illustrations, recommendations, and sample documents, this reference contains 34 sections on selected topics from the CFRs that all general-industry safety professionals must understand, including the forklift, personal protective equipment, and respiratory standards; workplace ergonomic standard; and Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER). New features included in this edition include terms and definitions within each section, section summaries to help you quickly locate needed information, and new 'Best Practice' recommendations for achieving compliance. Other features in this book include a description of the authority and mechanics of the OSHA inspection; addresses, telephone numbers, and fax numbers for the OSHA Regional Offices; a list of published resources; useful references; and a self-inspection checklist featuring 19 pages of requirements.
