Are emergency-response personnel designated and prepared?

Here’s a reminder: Emergency-response personnel need to be designated, trained for specific purposes such as fire or haz-chem response, have the proper equipment – and have any required training and certifications kept up-to-date.

Nissan Brake Georgia, Inc., Rock Spring, GA, faces $53,000 in fines for failing to train designated emergency-response personnel, as well as for electrical equipment rooms for storage (a common fire hazard), and failing to provide PPE. OSHA rated the violations as serious. OSHA fined the company for failing to train workers in electric shock and arc-flash hazards.
