|"PPE changes all the time," said Sideris. "OSHA's requirements change frequently and equipment makers constantly innovate to meet those revisions. The PPE that was fully compliant last year may not be today. For example, a few years ago there was no such thing as retractable lanyards for fall protection. Given all the different positions workers needed to be to get the job done, in many situations the standard harness didn't suffice. So they come up with the retractable lanyard, one that creates an instant stop within two inches of the start of the fall, to respond to that need. OSHA changes a requirement, manufacturers respond with new PPE and contractors are expected to stay on top of this." |
Training also allows workers to identify upcoming trends in compliance. Sideris believes that in the coming months OSHA will focus on enforcing the health portion of http://bashnya.netne.net their regulations, like how long people are exposed to chemicals such as chromium or lead. He anticipates that OSHA will regulate the proper use of PPE more stringently as well. By training regularly, a contractor can address these changes proactively.
