 5.20 OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH (OSH) PROGRAM AND WRITTEN PLANS

 
 

 Purpose

 

P1. To develop, implement, and evaluate a safety and occupational health program that includes written plans in accordance with 29 CFR 1960, the OSHA Act of 1970, Executive Order (EO) 12196, and Job Corps policy.

P2. To develop and document all of the plans described in the following requirements, if applicable.

 

 Requirements

 

R1. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Plan

In accordance with 29 CFR 1910.132, centers are required to develop, implement, and maintain a written PPE plan and program that includes at least the following:

a. Perform hazard assessments for all trades and/or work areas to assess the need for PPE. Maintain hazard assessment records that identify hazards and risks, and document the type of PPE required. Develop procedures to notify the center Safety Officer when new processes are introduced or when existing processes change.

If a new career technical training (CTT) program is introduced, a hazard assessment must be performed to determine PPE needs according to training activities. Hazard assessment based upon other trades and activities cannot be the bases of the PPE requirements for a new trade.

b. Select PPE based on hazard assessments by the trade supervisor in conjunction with the center Safety Officer. Methods for selecting PPE are well-documented, appropriate, and properly implemented.

c. Develop a PPE training program that will address student and staff needs. The written training program includes:

1. When PPE use is necessary

2. What PPE is necessary

3. How to properly don (put on), doff (remove), adjust, and wear PPE

4. The proper care, maintenance, useful life, and disposal of PPE

d. Maintain PPE training records for students and staff for three years. Additional retention requirements are as follows:

1. Retain student training records for one year following completion of training or termination of enrollment.

2. Retain staff training records for one year following resignation or termination of employment.

e. Establish procedures to inspect, clean, and maintain PPE. Ensure that supervisors, staff, and students are trained in these procedures and follow the established criteria.

f. Establish procedures to remove damaged equipment from service.

R2. Fire Safety and Prevention Plan

All centers must develop and implement a Fire Safety and Prevention Plan that addresses the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Life Safety Code 101 requirements as referenced in 29 CFR 1910.39 and 1910.157.

Centers will establish a policy, based upon the proximity to emergency response personnel (i.e., fire and/or hazardous materials response teams) that specifies full evacuation or incipient stage fire suppression by staff in response to a fire alarm.

a. Fire Prevention Plan

The center Safety Officer must perform the following activities to ensure that students and staff are familiar with all center fire alarms and evacuation procedures:

1. Center Safety Officers must perform and log monthly inspections of:

(a) Fire alarm systems

(b) Sprinkler systems

(c) Illuminated exit signs

(d) Emergency lighting

(e) Fire extinguishers

2. Centers must conduct monthly fire drills during high student/staff activity levels and when students are in the dormitories. Center Safety Officers will document the accountability and timeliness of fire drills.

3. Centers must establish and implement a Fire Watch Plan, included as part of the Fire Prevention Plan, to be implemented when there is a nonfunctional alarm system. The Fire Watch Plan will include the following:

(a) Establishment of fire warden and security staff duties and responsibilities

(b) Establishment of minimum required equipment for security staff

(c) Establishment of a process for reporting fires and notifying building occupants

b. Fire Safety Plan Elements

The center Safety Officer must ensure that at least the following elements are included in the Fire Safety Plan:

10. List of staff responsible for communications with local media, Regional Office, and National Office of Job Corps

c. Training

All centers must provide ongoing fire prevention and fire extinguisher training for staff and students according to their roles and responsibilities within the Fire Prevention Plan. Training resources include state or local fire marshals, insurance companies, universities, or the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Training programs must be customized to center location, offerings, and programs, and must include the following elements, as appropriate:

1. Training for fire wardens and security staff

(a) Fire classes and the appropriate extinguishing agent

(b) Proper maintenance and use of fire extinguishers

d. Required Documentation

Documentation of fire safety training, drills, and inspections must be maintained on center for three years and made available for review upon request.

e. Incipient Fire Suppression and Portable Fire Extinguishers

1. OSHA defines incipient fire as a fire in the initial or beginning stage that can be controlled or extinguished using a portable fire extinguisher, Class II standpipe, or small hose system without the need for protective clothing or equipment (e.g., breathing apparatus). OSHA requires centers to provide fire extinguishing equipment for an incipient fire. However, OSHA allows centers to address incipient fires and building evacuation in one of the following two ways:

(a) Evacuation of all or most of the building’s occupants to a safe area without attempting to fight the fire

(b) Evacuation of all building occupants except those who are properly trained and designated to use portable fire extinguishers

2. Fire prevention plans must comply with 1910.157​, Portable Fire Extinguishers, according to the center’s established policy concerning incipient fires.

3. Incipient firefighting should be based upon a thorough hazard assessment, and proximity and response time of local fire department or emergency response team.

R3. Emergency Action Plan

Centers are required to develop an Emergency Action Plan (EAP) in accordance with 29 CFR 1910.38 if fire extinguishers are located in each building and students and staff are required to evacuate the building in the event of a fire or other emergency.
