Great article Bill! Really enjoyed the read. Very important stuff for everyone that maintains an OSHA 300 Log to know. Even after 22 years of doing this type of recordkeeping, I even learned a couple of new things from this article.Barry McCallum, CSP, CHMM
Throughout the newly revised Subpart D, as well as the new standard for fall protection PPE, OSHA uses terms to describe various types of employees who may be assigned responsibilities based on their knowledge, abilities and qualifications. I’ve had a number of questions from clients asking about the terms and under what circumstances such designated persons should be assigned.
