OSHA ISSUES FINAL RULE ON EMPLOYER-PAID PPE
OSHA announced in the November 15, 2007 Federal Register a final rule on employer-paid personal protective equipment (PPE). The rule provides a clear, concise policy that all PPE, with a few exceptions, be provided at no cost to the employee. "Employees exposed to safety and health hazards may need to wear personal protective equipment to be protected from injury, illness and death caused by exposure to those hazards," said Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA Edwin G. Foulke, Jr. "This final rule will clarify who is responsible for paying for PPE, which OSHA anticipates will lead to greater compliance and potential avoidance of thousands of workplace injuries each year." OSHA estimates there will be 21,000 fewer injuries per year as a result of the rule.

OSHA INTRODUCES NEW PUBLICATIONS WEB PAGE
Visitors to the new Publications Web page will find a more refined, user-friendly approach to access OSHA's resources. The page was designed to provide customers with five different ways to search for products: by publication number; keyword; alphabetically; industry/topic; and by type of publication. Customers can order up to 25 copies of a maximum of five publications. As one of the most popular pages on the agency's Web site, OSHA wants the Publications page to serve as the comprehensive resource for safety and health products and information.
