Updated OSHA Compliance
Tools From CCH For General Industry, Construction
General Industry Ergonomic Standards for 2000
(RIVERWOODS, ILL., April 19, 2000) Two popular
handbooks of safety standards have been updated and given a new, larger format by CCH
INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading provider of human resources, employment and safety law
information and software. Now available are Occupational Safety and Health Standards
for General Industry (29 CFR Part 1910) and Occupational Safety and Health
Standards for the Construction Industry (29 CFR Part 1926). (1035 pages, $45.95 and
420 pages, $37.50, respectively. To order call 1-800-248-3248, or visit http://hr.cch.com.)
The latest editions of these popular titles reflect all of the
applicable Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards through February
1, 2000, including the controversial proposed ergonomic standards. And, in response to
users interest in a larger format, the books now measure 8 ½ inches by 11
"The larger size of the volumes, combined with larger and
clearer graphics and charts, makes these books easier than ever to use at actual job
sites," said Steve Slater, marketing manager for CCHs Human Resources group.
"Now, users will have more convenient access to the most recent and complete set of
applicable OSHA standards so they can address critical issues in their operations before
injuries and illness can occur and costly fines are levied and lawsuits are filed."
General Industry Standards
In addition to setting forth the standards contained in the Code of
Federal Regulation, Occupational Safety and Health Standards for General Industry
helps companies ensure compliance with the many state standards that are modeled after
federal OSHA requirements.
Of great interest to general industry is the proposed ergonomics
standard, issued late last year and due to be issued in final form before the end of 2001.
The full text of the proposed standard is reproduced, allowing professionals to become
familiar with rules that may eventually impact nearly two million workplaces. Other
developments reflected in the 2000 edition of this 1035-page book include revised rules on
ventilation and dipping and coating operations.
Construction Industry Specifics
The 2000 edition of the 420-page Occupational Safety and Health
Standards for the Construction Industry benefits greatly from the change to a larger
format, making it easier to use at job sites under all sorts of conditions. Regulations on
inspections, citations, and proposed penalties, as well as reporting of occupational
injuries and illnesses have been revised. And new special provisions for air contaminants
and 1,3-Butadiene are included.
