OSHA Passes New Ruling - Heads Up Bulletin to Address Issues

Bookmark and Share

OSHA has ruled that employers must pay cost of workers' safety equipment, according to an article by Jesse Holland, which appeared in the Insurance Journal on November 19th.. A finalized rule that was originally proposed in 1999, the U.S. Labor Department and the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will require that, over the next six months, employers must prepare to cover the costs for personal protective equipment (PPE), including safety-toed footwear, safety eyewear, and other clothing.

The announcement dovetails nicely with plans already in place for the NAID HEADS UP Health and Safety Program to tackle the issue of PPE for the secure destruction industry. Later this week, the monthly bulletin will provide instructions and resources regarding how to properly integrate PPE into the workplace.

The NAID HEADS UP Health and Safety Bulletin was introduced in October of this year and is designed to help members reduce employee accidents and injury, as well as to reduce insurance rates.
