ANSI developed standard Z358.1-2004, Emergency Eyewash and Shower Equipment, to provide guidance for OSHA's first aid requirement, 29 CFR 1910.151(c). There are also additional regulations that apply to specific industries such as hazardous materials, pulp, paper and paperboard manufacturing, telecommunications, and more.
The ANSI standard provides minimum performance, testing, installation, maintenance, and training specifications for equipment and systems used for emergency rinsing and flushing of the eyes, face, or body of a person that has been exposed to injurious materials.
Workers with reasonably anticipated occupational exposure to blood or other potentially infectious biohazard materials are required to be protected under OSHA regulation 29 CFR 1910.1030.
Drug & Alcohol Testing
Reliable and easy-to-use drug and alcohol tests are available for the workplace and zero tolerance settings. Drug tests are available for testing up to 6 drugs, including amphetamine, cocaine, methamphetamine, morphine (opiates), PCP, and THC (marijuana, pot). Alcohol tests and screeners can provide results on the presence of alcohol, or a reading on levels. DOT approved alcohol tests indicate a positive or negative presence of alcohol.
Although OSHA does not require drug or alcohol testing, employers have duties under the OSH Act of 1970 to keep workers free from recognized hazards that can cause, or are likely to cause death or serious injury.
OSHA 1910.120(q) requires emergency preparedness response programs and plans. Equipment you may need to implement your program or plan can include kits, stretchers, automated external defibrillators (AED), and survival wraps.
Preparing for facility emergencies may include biohazard protection, as outlined above, and spill clean up.
Provide protection and comfort for outdoor workers in building and highway construction, forestry, utilities, and more. Insect repellents, sunscreens, and lotions to prevent poison oak, ivy, and sumac rashes, help keep workers more comfortable and productive.
As part of your crew's personal protective equipment, you'll want to protect workers with a variety of pest control products. It's fast and easy to eliminate flying and crawling insects, and repel dogs and snakes.
Swatting at insects takes time and energy, and can divert attention, leading to hazardous situations. Personal repellents are available to protect workers from mosquitoes, ticks, fleas, and more.
