2018 Annual OSHA and Workplace Safety Conference—every safety director knows that OSHA’s General Duty Clause requires employers to protect employees against “recognized hazards likely to cause serious injuries or death.” According to OSHA, 2 million American workers are victims of workplace violence each year. And the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that on average 551 workers per year are killed as a result of work-related homicides—78 percent from shootings.
At the same time, explosions from fires, flammable liquids and dust are some of the most catastrophic events that can affect companies. These types of explosions can cause employee deaths, serious injuries and entire destruction of buildings.
And OSHA’s new silica rules limiting exposure to respirable crystalline silica—small dust-like particles that can get into lungs—is estimated to save over 600 lives and prevent more than 900 new cases of silicosis each year. The rule covers about 300,000 General Industry workers in industries such as brick manufacturing, foundries and hydraulic fracturing. Respirators are used to protect employees from silica, and are used by emergency responders for explosion rescues.
Covering all of these as well as important updates and changes to OSHA regulations, the Pennsylvania Chamber—renowned for its quality educational compliance programs—presents OSHA compliance specialists and nationally known safety consultants. They’ll explain recommended programs, and present real life examples and best practices to help keep your employees safe and your company in compliance:
