2015 National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction UT Arlington’s OSHA Education Center, along with the other OSHA Training Institute Education Centers, participated in the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA’s) 2015 National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction on May 4 – 15, 2015 by holding several stand-downs throughout Region VI. Over 875 workers participated in UT Arlington’s stand-downs by taking a moment to address equipment inspections, specific job hazards, and other methods of fall protection. In 2014, OSHA’s Fall Prevention Stand-Down reached over 1,000,000 workers and their goal for 2015 is to reach over 3,000,000 workers – or four out of every ten construction workers in the country.

New Reporting Requirements Now in Effect As of Jan. 1, 2015, there is a change to what covered employers are required to report to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Employers are now be required to report all work-related fatalities within 8 hours and all in-patient hospitalizations, amputations, and losses of an eye within 24 hours of finding out about the incident.

Previously, employers were required to report all workplace fatalities and when three or more workers were hospitalized in the same incident. The updated reporting requirements have a life-saving purpose: they will enable employers and workers to prevent future injuries by identifying and eliminating the most serious workplace hazards.

Employers have three options for reporting these severe incidents to OSHA. They can call their nearest area office during normal business hours, call the 24-hour OSHA hotline at 1-800-321-OSHA (1-800-321-6742), or they will be able to report online.

UT Arlington Authorized Trainer Program (Safety) Launched Modeled after the Outreach Training Program, this new program will allow individuals to become authorized trainers in up to nine different subjects and instruct 8-hour hazard awareness courses with UT Arlington curriculum. Trainers must successfully complete the AST 190 Designing, Developing, and Delivering Adult Education, the AST 192 UTA Authorized Trainer (Safety), and have three years of safety and health experience. The AST courses are being offered in Arlington and Houston beginning in March and will branch out into other areas in the near future.
