The Occupational and Safety Health Administration (OSHA) was created to ensure that all workplaces are made as safe as they can be. Fire and scene investigators can be exposed to hazards as they comb through scene and debris following a fire. Often times, there is no way to identify those hazards before they are confronted with them. OSHA has recognized the unusual nature of this activity and focuses on training as a key element of complying with its regulations.
This presentation will discuss the various OSHA requirements and how they affect the way fire scenes are processed. Anthony Morrone and Richard Rardin will discuss the history of the Occupational Safety and Health Act, OSHA requirements for employees/owners, site control plans and safety programs, required training levels, scene processing, common hazards, and preventative measures.
