Avoiding Amputations: How To Eliminate Amputation Hazards And Stay Out Of OSHA's Enforcement Crosshairs
|Date / Time:
Amputations account for some of the most serious workplace injuries. Most often, amputations occur when workers operate unguarded machines such as mechanical power presses, brake presses, conveyors, drill presses and other powered and non-powered devices.
OSHA standards related to amputation hazards have been among the most frequently cited standards of the past several years. Since 2015, employers have been required to notify OSHA within 24 hours of an amputation resulting from a work-place event, and according to OSHA, 2,600 amputations were reported in 2015 alone.
Reports of amputations often result in an OSHA inspection following an incident, which means organization that are not compliant with regulations are likely to end up in OSHA’s crosshairs.
Join us for an in-depth webinar where seasoned safety lawyer Gary Visscher will provide insight to avoid OSHA fines for amputations by providing strategies to identify amputation hazards to prevent further amputations in the workplace.
