OSHA hones in on manufacturing amputations, updates emphasis program
from Woodworking Network
The Labor Department's Occupational Safety and Health Administration recently issued an updated National Emphasis Program to focus agency inspections on amputation hazards in manufacturing industries. This directive updates the 2015 NEP on amputations. The NEP targets industrial and manufacturing workplaces where employees are injured by unguarded or improperly guarded machinery and equipment. NEPs focus agency enforcement activity and do not create any new obligation to employers.
