Understanding the Difference Between OSHA and ANSI Safety Standards

May 27, 2015

Hi I’m Lonnie Muse with Innovative-IDM. I get questions from customers… “OSHA was just here. What does that mean? What do I do?” Well, we need to understand what some of the standards are. It can be confusing with all these letters O.S.H.A. It means Occupational Safety Health Administration.

ANSI – American National Standards Institute. The difference is OSHA is a government entity. It is the Bible, the ruling, the guys make the rules and do the inspections and if you really want to know you can go to this guide which is for industrial OSHA rules 1910. This has everything that you should have done. Okay, how do I do that?

Well ANSI standards is a group of American companies that got together to decide how products would perform; so its performance standards. As an example I have a safety relay made by a company. ANSI designed the safety performance that this relate would match and when it works it conforms to the OSHA Bible.

Product performance standards ANSI, how to hook it up ANSI. Why you do it and what rule you have to follow OSHA. I hope that helps if you need more help go to http://www.innovativeidm.com, go to our Knowledge Center there’s plenty of information there, such as white papers to help out or give us a call one of our techs can come out and look at your machine and make recommendations. After all, we’re Home of the Legendary Customer Experience!

New OSHA Regulations for Reporting Serious Injuries

December 8, 2014

Occupational Safety and Health Administration

Effective January 1, 2015, workplaces under federal OSHA jurisdiction will be required to report all serious work-related injuries within 24 hours of their occurrence.

These include in-patient hospitalizations, amputations or losses of an eye; fatalities will require that OSHA be notified within eight hours.

Avoiding Voltage Hazards Using a Digital Drive and Externally Mounted Keypad

June 12, 2014

Hi, I’m Lonnie Muse with Innovative IDM. OSHA says
I have to get dressed like this to go in and change
parameters on digital drives in a high-powered panel.

Or… you could dress like this and change
your digital parameters on your digital drive from the
outside by buying a kit. A through the door panel
kit.

150 bucks, not a big deal…

Let me tell you it will save your company money
in the long run by not buying all the ppe equipment that
you have to have to get into a panel of high voltage.

It will keep your employees safe and that’s probably
the most important. Keep them out of harm’s way because
we all know those types of accident or incidents are
money in the long run not worth spending.

If you need more information go to our website
InnovativeIDM.com look for the white papers in our
technical knowledge center or give us a call and one
of our applications Guys or field service guys will be

more than happy to talk with you about how to accomplish
this by keeping your people safe and not spending very
much to do it. As always Innovative IDM we’re the
