OSHA Publishes New Technical Manual Chapter on Noise
 

A recently published chapter on noise in the OSHA Technical Manual provides technical information and guidance to help the agency's compliance safety and health officers evaluate noise hazards in the workplace. According to OSHA, the content is based on currently available research publications, OSHA standards, and consensus standards.

The chapter covers the following information:

  • Background information about noise and noise regulations
  • Overview of noise controls
  • Work site noise evaluations
  • Investigative guidelines
  • Strategies for conducting noise evaluations
  • Noise hazard abatement and control
  • Resources for obtaining further information

OSHA uses the fifth edition of The Noise Manual , a 2003 AIHA publication, as a reference for the chapter. The new chapter became effective Aug. 15, and is available on OSHA's website .

 

OSHA Requests Input on Standards to Improve Chemical Safety

 
Yesterday OSHA announced a request for information (RFI) seeking public comment on potential revisions to its Process Safety Management (PSM) standard, related standards, and other policy options to prevent major chemical incidents. According to OSHA's press release, the RFI is in response to an executive order issued in August to improve chemical facility safety and security.

In addition to input on its PSM standard , OSHA requests public comment on potential revisions to its Explosives and Blasting Agents standard , potential updates to its Flammable Liquids standard and Spray Finishing standard , and potential changes to PSM enforcement policies.

The RFI has yet to be published in the Federal Register . After its publication, the public will have 90 days to submit written comments to OSHA.

View the RFI on OSHA's website . For more information, visit OSHA's Web page on Executive Order 13650 : Improving Chemical Facility Safety and Security.
