Case Study: In February 2018, a metal worker in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, was using a handheld grinder when the grinding disc burst. The employee was struck in the face and head, suffering lacerations, contusions, and the loss of vision in one eye.

Key Takeaway : Using the same tools day after day without incident doesn’t mean the tool can’t hurt you. Had the employee been wearing required head and face protection, it is unlikely that he would have lost vision in one eye. The lesson: Take time for safety every time.

Click to Learn More How often is retraining or recertification required?

OSHA has not specified any time frame for required retraining or recertification for Hand and Power Tool Safety. Since there is no OSHA standard dealing with this specific hazard the OSH Act general duty clause, section 5(a)(1), 29 U.S.C. 654(b)(1) defines the standard which provides that:

(a) Each employer -

(1) shall furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees.

A recognized hazard is a danger recognized by the employer's industry or industry in general, by the employer, or by common sense. The general duty clause does not apply if there is an OSHA standard dealing with the hazard, unless the employer knows that the standard does not adequately address the hazard.
