<!– [if !mso]> <! st1:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } –> There’s no better time to drop by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) website than now when the agency just published helpful information about skid-steer loaders safety, cable tray hazards and process safety management.Concerns about the first two subjects were addressed through the latest SHIBs (Safety and Health Information Bulletins) published in the website.

Equipment and Tool Safety

The Skid-steer Loader SHIB emphasizes the safety features of the equipment that are often defeated, bypassed or improperly maintained.The Cable Tray SHIB titled “Safely Installing, Maintaining and Inspecting Cable Trays” discusses the hazards that come with overloading cable trays. It looks into the matter further by identifying specific OSHA and National Electric Code requirements that help avoid these hazards.

Safety with Process Materials

To say that working with or near hazardous chemicals can cause fatalities is an understatement.OSHA recognizes this huge risk that’s why it produced the new resource Process Safety Management Depends on You!. This SHIB, which comes in the form of a poster and a QuickCard, is basically a helpful reminder to employers and employees about how critical it is to properly manage hazards in processing highly hazardous chemicals.

Companies in and near Illinois have the opportunity to learn more about process safety management by attending a three-day seminar on the subject.This will be held on March 16-18 in Naperville, Ill.Just click HERE to begin registration for the course.
