New LHSFNA Publications…
Hazardous construction tasks require supervision of a company-designated competent person, someone OSHA defines as “capable of identifying existing and predictable hazards in the surroundings or working conditions which are unsanitary, hazardous or dangerous to employees and who has authorization to take prompt corrective measures to eliminate them.”
The new Laborers’ Guide to Competent Persons lists everything that competent persons need to know: how to conduct inspections, how to keep good records, hazards to look for and how to correct them and applicable OSHA standards.
