Hilda Solis announced several major new OSHA enforcement initiatives during her April 14 keynote address at the National Action Summit for Latino Worker Health and Safety. OSHA currently requires that training provisions under its standards be provided in a language or form that workers can understand, and that its compliance officers check and verify that workers have received the training required by the standards. Effective April 28, OSHA will require its compliance officers to check and verify not only that the training has been provided, but that it is in a format workers can understand. Secretary Solis also announced a new pilot program where OSHA will work with local building inspectors to assure worker safety and health protection. Inspectors participating in this pilot program will be required to notify OSHA when they observe unsafe work conditions leading to the four major causes of workplace fatalities: falls, electrocution, being crushed or caught between, and being struck by.

The OSHA excavation safety regulations, "Construction Standards for Excavations," have enormous impact on the construction industry. These regulations require a "competent person" at the excavation site who is capable of identifying existing and predictable hazards and who has the authority to take prompt corrective measures to eliminate the hazards. This seminar will help you: comply with the OSHA’S "Construction Standards for Excavations;" determine the role/responsibility of the competent person; understand OSHA’s fine/penalty structure; and develop a comprehensive excavation safety plan.

Confined Space Training

The Confined Space Training program is intended to provide managers, foremen, competent person, and workers with basic information regarding entry into confined spaces. Its purpose is intended to create an awareness of the hazards associated with confined space entry, to help workers understand the procedures that must be followed when entering confined spaces and to provide managers with basic information necessary to establish a confined space entry program. No attempt has been made to treat the topic exhaustively.
