Prevent Worker Exposure to Carbon Monoxide
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a poisonous, colorless, odorless and tasteless gas. Although it has no detectable odor, CO is often mixed with other gases that do have an odor. You can inhale carbon monoxide along with gases that you can smell and not know that CO is present.

CO is a common industrial hazard resulting from the incomplete burning of material containing carbon such as natural gas, gasoline, kerosene, oil, propane, coal or wood. Forges, blast furnaces and coke ovens produce CO, but one of the most common sources of exposure in the workplace is the internal combustion engine.

OSHA urges employers to take necessary precautions to protect workers from the potentially fatal effects of carbon monoxide exposure. Every year, workers die from carbon monoxide poisoning, usually while using fuel-burning equipment, tools, compressors and pumps, gas-powered forklifts, and other devices in buildings or semi-enclosed spaces without adequate ventilation.

To reduce the risk of exposure, employers should install an effective ventilation system, use carbon monoxide detectors and take other precautions as described in OSHA's  Carbon Monoxide Fact Sheet . Other OSHA resources include  videos (in English and Spanish) , QuickCards (in  English  and  Spanish ), and a fact sheet on  portable generator safety .

OSHA Provides Maritime Safety Resources and Solutions
The maritime industry encompasses the construction, repair and scrapping of vessels, as well as the movement of cargo and other materials. OSHA standards cover safety requirements at marine terminals and in long shoring and shipyard operations.

There are many hazards associated with the maritime industry, including slips, trips and falls, machinery and equipment hazards, hazardous chemicals, confined/enclosed spaces and fire hazards. The implementation of controls, procedures and training is essential to raising awareness of potential maritime industry hazards and ways to keep workers safe.
OSHA has produced a wide variety of publications, videos and other resources to help identify, reduce and eliminate hazards in the maritime sector. For more information visit OSHA’s Maritime Industry Resources and Solutions webpage.

The OSHA Training Institute Education Center is offering OSHA 5410-OSHA Standards for the Maritime Industry in Dublin, California, on March 25-29, 2019. Participants in this 5-day course will learn to define maritime terms found in the OSHA Maritime Standards, identify hazards that occur in the maritime industry and determine appropriate abatement controls.  CLICK HERE for more information and to register.

It provides an update on OSHA General Industry Standards and OSHA policies. Outreach Trainers are required to attend this course once every four (4) years to maintain their authorized trainer status. 

Participants in this 1-day course will learn about the most significant changes within Cal/OSHA that affect general industry. This course updates the OSHA 5119-Cal/OSHA Standards for General Industry and continues the student’s authorization to teach both the 10-hour and 30-hour Cal/OSHA Outreach Programs. Prerequisites: OSHA 5119 or OSHA 5039 within the previous four (4) years.

This 4-day course covers what is required to establish, maintain and monitor a respiratory protection program, and includes terminology, OSHA standards, certification by NIOSH and recommended medical evaluation. The course incorporates hands-on experience with respirator selection, qualitative fit testing and the use of a large array of respiratory and support equipment for training.

This 3-day course (previously OSHA 3110) provides an overview of state-of-the-art technology for fall protection and current OSHA requirements. Topics covered include the principles of fall protection, the components of fall arrest systems, the limitations of fall arrest equipment and OSHA policies regarding fall protection. The course features a 1-day field exercise demonstrating fall protection equipment.

This course is designed for those who are interested in teaching OSHA's 10-hour and 30-hour construction safety and health outreach classes. Special emphasis is placed on topics that are required in the 10-hour and 30-hour classes as well as on those that are the most hazardous in construction. Participants learn effective instructional approaches, adult learning principles, and training techniques.

This 1-day course is designed for hazardous waste operations and emergency response workers who must satisfy their annual 8-hour refresher training course requirement. The target audience for this course is all employees whose job functions involve responding to releases of hazardous materials. Participants must present proof of initial HAZWOPER training

Rollover Protection for Tractors

The safety of tractor operators is increased when tractors are equipped with a roll bar or cage frame around the operator. The use of these rollover protective structures (ROPS) and a seat belt system can help reduce injuries. Many older tractors without ROPS are still in use.

OSHA has issued a pamphlet on Rollover Protection and Operating Tractors Safely .

National Ladder Safety Month

Every year more than 100 workers are killed, and thousands suffer disabling injuries in ladder-related incidents. In March, the American Ladder Institute is sponsoring its annual   National Ladder Safety Month   to promote ladder safety at work and home. OSHA will be participating in a ladder safety symposium on March 19, 2019, in Arlington, Texas, (register to attend   in person  or via  live webcast ).
