There has been a lot of buzz lately over tires. It seems like even touching them is regulated by some federal agency or another. Additionally, I’ve read a few lawsuits, where questions of dealership liability in accidents have been raised, and that doesn’t begin to touch the proliferation of information around waste tire generation, storage or hauling.
So I was not surprised to read that OSHA has revised materials addressing handling and storage standards for workers servicing single-piece and multi-piece rim wheels.
“These updated materials will provide readily accessible information on how to prevent worker injuries and deaths from tire-servicing incidents,” said Dr. David Michaels, Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA. “The new format and easy access will simplify compliance with the standard by helping employers provide their workers with vital servicing information.”
