Checklist Updates

Several updates have been made to our General Industry 1910 checklist this past month.
 
We added categories called Abrasive Blasting and another one called Grinding, Polishing and Buffing. Both categories include questions from 1910.94 covering ventilation requirements and proper guarding when performing these operations.
 
We added questions to Spray Finishing Operations specific to guarding and ventilation requirements for electrostatic painting and drying operations.
 
A new question was added to Loading Docks to address the use of safety devices (i.e. photo-sensors for auto-reversal) on motorized overhead doors.

One new question was added to the Construction 1926 checklist under Fire Safety to address requirement to maintain access to firefighting equipment.

Like all checklists, these can be customized to meet your needs (i.e. add/remove categories and/or questions from the lists and you can also import your own custom checklists to the app.
