  • I couldn’t find this detail spelled out anywhere. Would Ron know where this is?
  • Page 28888 OSHA, of course, encourages employers to go beyond its minimum requirements and to take additional measures to address fall hazards in a comprehensive manner, starting with a discussion about the elimination of fall hazards and ending with a plan to rescue employees if they fall. To meet this requirement, the employer must evaluate the availability of rescue personnel, ladders, or other rescue equipment. In some situations, it may be appropriate to use equipment; for example, a mechanical device that has descent capability which allows employees to rescue themselves after a fall has been arrested. In other situations, a suspended employee may not be able to reach a work level independently, so the employer must ensure the ability to rescue the employee promptly. In recognition of hazards confronting employees, OSHA developed a Safety and Health Information Bulletin (SHIB) addressing the hazards associated with suspension trauma/orthostatic intolerance (SHIB 03–24–2004, available at http://www.osha.gov/dts/shib/shib032404.html). The SHIB states in part: Orthostatic intolerance may be experienced by workers using fall arrest systems. Following a fall, a worker may remain suspended in a harness. The sustained immobility may lead to a state of unconsciousness. Depending on the length of time the suspended worker is unconscious/immobile and the level of venous pooling, the resulting orthostatic intolerance may lead to death. While not common, such fatalities often are referred to as ‘‘harness-induced pathology’’ or ‘‘suspension trauma.’’ OSHA has already adopted this approach in the general industry, construction, and shipyard employment standards on fall protection. The proposal is also consistent with the national consensus standard, ANSI/ASSE A10.32–2004 (section 6.2.1). Additionally, section 7.3 of the ANSI/ASSE Z359.1–2007 standard addresses the need to be trained in rescue. Finally, the need for rescue is evident by the development of a new American National Standard entitled ‘‘Safety Requirements for Assisted-Rescue and Self-Rescue Systems, ANSI/ASSE Z359.4–2007.’’
  • 2. Worksite Analysis A practical analysis of the work environment involves a variety of worksite examinations to identify existing hazards and conditions and operations in which changes might occur to create new hazards. Unawareness of a hazard stemming from failure to examine the worksite is a sign that safety and health policies and/or practices are ineffective. Effective management actively analyzes the work and worksite to anticipate and prevent harmful occurrences. The following measures are recommend to identify all existing and potential hazards: Conduct comprehensive baseline worksite survey for safety and health and periodic comprehensive update surveys and involve employees in this effort. Analyze planned and new facilities, processes, materials, and equipment. Perform routine job hazards analyses. Assess risk factors of ergonomics applications to workers' tasks. Conduct regular site safety and health inspections so that new or previously missed hazards and failures in hazard controls are identified. Provide a reliable system for employees to notify management personnel about conditions that appear hazardous and to receive timely and appropriate responses and encourage employees to use the system without fear of reprisal. This system utilizes employee insight and experience in safety and health protection and allows employee concerns to be addressed. Investigate accidents and "near miss" incidents so that their causes and means of prevention can be identified. Analyze injury and illness trends over time so that patterns with common causes can be identified and prevented. Use OSHA's Computer-Disk, Read-Only-Memory (CD-ROM) (2) to review case studies that might be pertinent to worksite analyses and hazard identification.
  • Difference between a JSA and an assessment Analogy of paying to have an assessment performed vs. winging it to that of investing your retirement.

    5. 5. ANSI Z359.2Fall hazard survey report (Z359.2 §4)“Prior to preparing fall protection procedures, a fall hazard surveyshall be performed for every workplace activity where authorizedpersons are exposed to a fall hazard.”
    6. 6. ANSI A10.32Section 6.7. Job Task. Every job task shall be surveyed to identify potential fall hazards and appropriate protection provided.
    7. 7. OSHA REQUIREMENTSProposed 29 CFR 1910 Subpart I (General Industry)> Existing 29 CFR 1910.132(d)(1) > The employer shall assess the workplace to determine if hazards are present, or are likely to be present, which necessitate the use of personal protective equipment (PPE).
