How State Colleges and Universities are getting ready to comply with OSHA Standards

Effective February 1, 2019, state colleges and universities need to comply with OSHA Standards per House Bill 3952. With just seven months to go before it goes into effect (and we know how fast time goes by), have you started reviewing your programs to see where you stand? Do you have the staff needed to complete the necessary requirements to come into compliance?

With summer here and the students gone, now is a great time to start. Knowing how busy it can get once Fall and Winter hits, we have already begun helping other state colleges and universities with this process as illustrated below:

“CAPACCIO is an extension of our Facilities Department and has always been there to help us with EH&S tasks. Last year, CAPACCIO assisted with a LO/TO project that prepared us for an unexpected visit by the Department of Labor Standards. Currently, CAPACCIO is conducting an H&S audit and also completing JHAs for job processes conducted throughout WSU. This project will not only get us ready for the February 1st deadline, but it will also help us better understand the parts of the standard that apply to certain job descriptions on campus.”

 Robert Daniels, Jr., Associate Director of Facilities, Worcester State University

There are a variety of ways CAPACCIO can help. We can conduct a H&S audit/gap analysis, a review of your OSHA programs, H&S training, or simply provide an extra set of hands to update specific programs (JHA, LO/TO, PPE, HazCom) which may be a bit more time consuming.

CAPACCIO’S Health and Safety team has worked with colleges and universities both large and small and can deliver specifically what you need quickly and cost-effectively. If you have any questions or need more information or assistance, please email Lucy Servidio or call her at 508.380.9217 or email Travis Wheeler or call him at 774.249.3246.
