The Alliance between the Concrete Sawing & Drilling Association (CSDA) and the Occupational Safety & Health Administration has released a new safety series called “CSDA/ OSHA Best Practices for Sawing and Drilling Operations.” The series was developed to promote the safety of workers in the sawing and drilling industry.
The first document published, “Highway Work Zone Safety Checklist,” provides the industry with the best procedures and practices for performing sawing and drilling operations in a highway work zone to prevent accidents. Coming soon is a document covering respiratory protection from hazards associated with silica. The Alliance is also working on developing a “Motor Vehicle Safety Best Practice Seminar” for sawing and drilling professionals as well as nonindustry professionals. ? (727) 577-5004 ? www.csda.org
