We added a new question to the Construction 1926 Checklist under "Cranes” to address "Operator Evaluations”. Effective February 7, 2019, OSHA requires that operators must be evaluated and deemed qualified by a demonstration of skills and knowledge to operate the equipment safely. This question was added to address this requirement and references 1926.1427(f)(1) thru (7).
We added 4 new questions to the General Industry 1910 Checklist under "Electrical Safety”. This is our largest category with 38 questions. We try to limit questions per category to no more than 20-25 but unfortunately, there’s just too much in this standard to limit the questions.The new questions added include:
Electrical equipment free of significant damage (i.e. dents, corrosion, etc.)? 1910.303(b)(7)(iv)
Electrical equipment firmly secured to surface? 1910.303(b)(8)(i)
Electrical equipment adequately protected against damage? 1910.303(g)(2)(ii)
Damaged electrical equipment removed from service? 1910.334(a)(2)(ii)
Did you know that Safety Reports has 16 checklists that come preloaded with our app and we’re planning to add a new one in March for conducting "Vehicle Inspections”.
Below is a list of our currently available checklists:
1. Ag Industry Checklist (references 1910 standards with emphasis on Section 272)
2. Best Practice Audit (includes questions that insurance underwriters typically ask)
