Information Transfer: What OSHA Requires

Information Transfer: What OSHA Requires

August 16, 2021

When it comes to OSHA's rules for information transfer, it's important to start with the hazard. Employers have the responsibility to identify and control known hazards to ensure worker safety. When unknown hazards exist, the risk levels are elevated because workers may not have all the information they need to safely do the work. Pam Tompkins breaks down what OSHA requires for information transfer and what you can do to help ensure worker safety.

This discussion was developed from our popular online, self-paced video-driven course, OSHA Electric Power Standards with Pam Tompkins & Matt Edmonds. This course was built to provide you with a simple and practical way to learn about OSHA’s Electric Power standards 1910.269 and 1926 Subpart V and provide you with expert insight and interpretations that help you understand the applications of the regulation.

Frontline Utility Safety Leadership: How Common is Common Sense?

Frontline Utility Safety Leadership: How Common is Common Sense?

June 25, 2021

How did you learn the stove was hot? Common sense tells us we have an innate awareness of hazards and yet I’m guessing most of us touched it and learned it was hot. What about brushing your teeth? Ever hurt yourself doing that? When was the last time you locked your keys in your vehicle or slipped on ice? Have you ever run into a stationary object while driving? Common sense would tell us these things should never happen and yet they do.
