OSHA Expert Helps You Create Your Emergency Action Plan
An Emergency Action Plan (EAP) is usually a written document required by particular OSHA standards. For smaller organizations, the plan does not need to be written, and may be communicated orally if there are 10 or fewer employees. The purpose of an EAP is to facilitate and organize employer and employee actions during emergencies. An effective EAP includes means of reporting fires and other emergencies, evacuation procedures, procedures for employees who remain to operate critical plant operations before they evacuate, procedures to account for all employees after evacuation, and rescue and medical duties for designated employees.
OSHA Expert can help you to create a simple EAP. This basic plan will be adequate for needs of many small and medium-sized organizations but may not be adequate for large establishments or those with more significant hazards. Users in such establishments should consider the special characteristics of their workplaces. This basic plan can be supplemented to address any situations that require special attention.

Most small and medium-sized entities will get their basic plans from this system in 10 to 15 minutes. This expert system DOES NOT save any of the information that you enter or the plan that it helps you to write, so you should save or print your plan when it is completed. Please visit the OSHA Expert User Guide to obtain further instructions.

Prevent Worker Fatigue and Fatigue-related Injuries and Illnesses

Long work hours and irregular work shifts are common in our society. Many American workers spend over 40 hours a week at work and almost 15 million work full time on evening, night, rotating or other irregular shifts. Work schedules like these may cause worker fatigue.

Long work hours may increase the risk of injuries and accidents and can contribute to poor health and worker fatigue. Studies show that long work hours can result in increased levels of stress, poor eating habits, lack of physical activity and illness. It is important to recognize the symptoms of worker fatigue and its impact on each worker's safety and health and on the safety of co-workers.

It is important for employers to reduce the risk of worker fatigue.

OSHA and NIOSH Publish Nail Gun Safety Guide for Construction Contractors

Nail guns are used every day on many construction jobs—especially in residential construction. They boost productivity but also cause tens of thousands of painful injuries each year. Nail gun injuries are common—one study found that 2 out of 5 residential carpenter apprentices experienced a nail gun injury over a four-year period. When they do occur, these injuries are often not reported or given medical treatment.

OSHA and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH have published Nail Gun Safety: A Guide for Construction Contractors for residential home builders and construction contractors, subcontractors and supervisors. NIOSH and OSHA developed this publication to provide information to help prevent nail gun injuries.
