Now for the down side.

Small business in the construction industry, Frisbee Painting is very concerned with safety. Frisbee Painting certainly wants all of our employees to return home each night safe and with a profit for the day.

The things I learned in the 10 hour OSHA course yesterday.

1) OSHA on average issues 2.7 citations per visit.

2) OSHA has a new goal to issue 5 citations per visit.

3) OSHA has no part of the agency designed to help businesses achieve compliance.

4) Anything discussed yesterday concerning safety was just good common sense.

5) Many safety issues on a construction site are, as you can imagine, subjective.

6) OSHA will easily be able to achieve 5 citations per visit.

Does this strike anyone else as the wrong method?

In an continuing effort to keep up with the changes in regulations, and improve the service we offer our customers all of our foremen have just returned from a 10 hour OSHA training class for safety, all of our foremen have completed this now.

Not only will our customers receive better service, but we hope to continue our record of no on the job injuries!!

Safety Safety Safety

As construction workers it is very important to be safety conscious. Frisbee Painting Inc has decided as of tomorrow all of our foremen will be OSHA certified. This is becoming the standard on commercial jobs, and we have decided to make it a priority on residential jobs as well.

Lead Paint

I have just finished reading the CDC’s “Preventing Lead Poisoning in Young Children”. It is a very dry read, but full of great information. There are two main things I have taken away from the reading.

1) Although lead exposure can be caused by many different things (lead jewelry, food, and cosmetics) the most common high-dose sources of lead exposure are lead based paints and lead contaminated house dust and soil.

2) Large numbers of children with elevated BLLs live in very close proximity to each other.
This leads me to believe that many of these children are living in housing that was built before 1978 and has been poorly maintained. Though I am not an expert in the matter I am lead to conclude that maintaining a property and routine cleaning will greatly reduce the risk to young children. However, these are only my personal conclusions.

We will have 2 painters certified in lead paint removal within two months.
