DAVENPORT, Iowa - MANCOMM has announced the release of the latest edition of its OSHA General Industry Regulations Book. The new edition of this book is updated through Jan. 1, 2011.

“This year, we are taking a new approach with the look of our books,” said Benjamin W. Mangan, president of MANCOMM, a Midwest-based national safety and compliance publisher. “Many clients have expressed that the book should look different each year, so they easily spot new editions. With their input in mind, this year’s major regulatory releases will feature colorful new cover designs.”

According to OSHA, the term “general industry” refers to all OSHA-covered industries “not included in agriculture, construction or maritime” - but MANCOMM noted that the OSHA General Industry safety standard is a base or “horizontal” standard, which is often cited to address hazards in construction as well.

Included in the Jan. 2011 edition are the 1903 regulations about inspections, citations, and proposed penalties; the 1904 regulations about recording and reporting occupational injuries and illnesses; and the 1910 regulations, which apply to all general industry operations.

According to the company, with the book’s Quick-Find Index™, users can quickly access needed information. Also included are MANCOMM’s Sharps Injury Log, an improved version of the OSHA 300 Log, incident report forms, and selected OSHA letters of interpretation, as well as a listing of OSHA locations and phone numbers. The book, which is also available in CD format, ships with one full-size 300 Log.
