In Feb. 2003, the Sealant, Waterproofing & Restoration Institute (SWRInstitute) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced their alliance to promote safe and healthful working conditions for workers who apply and work with sealant, waterproofing and restoration products.
SWRInstitute is committed to promoting safe practices in the workplace and jobsite. In addition, SWRInstitute is working with OSHA to educate members by providing timely information about how to protect employees.
OSHA has developed a Web page exclusively for the SWRInstitute and the sealant, waterproofing and restoration industry. This page is a great resource that contains many links that are helpful in your day-to-day business, including eTools, a stand-alone interactive training tool that features a specific topic; links to Safety and Health Topic pages; and Expert Advisors, a resource on best practices on the jobsite, which is updated as new information comes available. Sample topics include: silica and lead exposure, fall protection and confined space protocol. Plus you can download OSHA presentations from previous SWRInstitute Fall Technical and Annual Meetings.
