Safety: Introduction to OSHA Standards, Part 2
This is a continuation of the prior educational session where we will cover topics such as: Control of Hazardous Energy (Lockout/Tagout), Machine Guarding, Flammable and Combustible liquids, Basic Electrical Safety Requirements, and Walking and Working Surfaces.
Machine safeguards and proper application of the Lockout/Tagout standard are essential for protecting workers from needless and preventable injuries. Machine guarding and Lockout/Tagout violations continuously rank among the top 10 of OSHA citations issued. OSHA's electrical standards address this serious workplace hazard which exposes employees to such dangers as electric shock, electrocution, fires and explosions. The flammable and combustible liquid standard applies to the handling, storage and use of liquids with a flash point below 200 degrees F. To prevent explosion and fire hazards, this standard addresses the primary concern of design and construction, ventilation, ignition sources and storage.

The OSHA standards for walking and working surfaces apply to essentially all permanent places of employment.
