OSHA reminds employers about eyewash hygiene standards

An information sheet released by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration in July 2015 reminds employers in Minnesota and around the country about the importance of properly maintaining workplace eyewash facilities. Eyewash stations are required in many HBV and HIV research and production facilities and any workplaces where corrosive chemicals are present. According to the safety agency, the water in these eye washing stations may become contaminated by organisms such as Pseudomonas, Legionella and Acanthamoeba when maintenance efforts are lacking.

Spate of fatal accidents lead to stepped up mine inspections

The Mine Safety and Health Administration has announced that safety inspection efforts are being stepped up in Minnesota and around the country. The announcement follows a series of fatal mine and quarry accidents on August 3. A burst silo at a gravel and sand mine in northern Virginia killed a plant operator, a miner working underground at a Nevada facility was struck and killed by mining equipment and a worker lost his life in North Dakota after being engulfed by a stockpile.
