OSHA Unveils Safety and Health Topics Page for Plastics Industry

The 1.5 million workers in the U.S. plastics industry have a new place to go for occupational safety and health information. OSHA has launched a new Web page, OSHA Assistance for the Plastics Industry, which is the product of OSHA's Alliance with the Society of the Plastics Industry Inc.

"This page brings together industry-specific information to help employers and workers establish safer and more healthful workplaces," said OSHA Administrator John Henshaw. "This is a perfect example of how the Alliance Program can leverage resources to maximize worker safety and health protections."

The new Web page features information about OSHA standards as well as safety and health concerns in the plastics industry. It also includes links to an interactive training program, various eTools, a section of frequently asked questions (FAQ) for plastics processors, and a section on hazards and solutions that outlines procedures to identify and reduce workplace hazards.
