Lightbulb OSHA General Industry 10 hour training for the Paintball Industry

Friday, April 03, 2009

To whom it may concern;

In our ongoing efforts to provide cohesive safety training throughout the paintball industry, Silver State Paintball’s Safety Services division has taken the OSHA 10 hour General Industry course and geared it towards paintball field owners, pro shops and manufacturers. Instead of the run of the mill cookie cutter OSHA course, students are shown how the safety regulations relate to their day to day exposures and the steps required to help reduce or eliminate the risk.

Why is safety important to the industry? In most establishments, OSHA related safety is almost always overlooked, when an injury does happen it could have been easily preventable with a little forethought. These injuries are costly both to the injured worker and the employer. The DOL estimates that a simple hand laceration / injury runs an average of $9,000.00. This is money removed from the profits of business that would be used to purchase goods, products and services. Each and every injury removes potential profits from not only the field and pro shop but, from the manufacturers and distributors!

Silver State Paintball is looking to provide the OSHA 10 Hour Courses to Owners and Employees at various events and trade shows during the
remainder of 2009 and into 2010.

A brief overview of our course is as follows:
OSHA 10-Hour General Industry

TRAINING GOALS
Upon completion of the OSHA General Industry 10-hour course, you will gain working knowledge of:
Fundamental OSHA standards for general industry
OSHA policies and procedures

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Safety personnel, owners, instructors, managers, supervisors, or anyone having responsibility for OSHA compliance in the paintball industry.

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND?
This course is designed to provide you with an overview of fundamental OSHA standards and assist you with enhancing your compliance efforts.
Topics covered include (not a complete list):
OSHAct and General Duty
Inspections, citations and general duty clause penalties
Walking/working surfaces
Hazardous materials / MSDS
Material handling
Personal Protective Equipment
Compressed Gas Awareness
Electrical and welding standards

1-Day Course (usually 8 hours of class with a 1 hour lunch)

Qualifies for CEUs in some states (Usually 1.2 NSC)

The fee for this class during a trade show or event is $75 per person and includes an OSHA recognized completion card that never expires.

Silver State Paintball is available to attend events and teach classes with a minimum of 10 students and a maximum of 30 students per day. 30 days notice required, 90 days preferred.

Silver State Paintball funds its activities through grants and financial considerations of manufacturers and distributors. We are currently looking for sponsors for multiple events in the remainder of 2009 and all of 2010.

OSHA is everywhere, always has been since the OSHAct was put in power.

Now the only people who have cause to dislike OSHA are unscrupolous employers as the sole purpose of OSHA is to protect the worker, his liveliehood (his pay check) and to provide strict rules in regards to worker's compensation for injury and then penalties to employeers who willfully put their worker's in harms way.

As an employee, OSHA is there to protect you, bottom line. As an employer OSHA can protect you from foolish employees who fail to follow company standards but, you also have to follow regulations by having safety standards.

In todays world, you can do things safely and earn big profits there is no reason why a company should ever allow its employees to operate in an unsafe matter. OSHA regulations are set as a bare minimum, if graded like school work they are considered barely passing, ie a D.

Another consideration all companies have to set their own Safety rules. They have to meet or exceed OSHA requirements. I have seen some companies go to great lengths to make life miserable for their workers. Unfortunately, once your company dictates a horrible safety rule, it then falls under OSHA to control. So most times, OSHA is there to enforce your companies policy, as it will take precident over OSHA standards if it is more strict.

since china lacks OSHA, outsourcing there is cheaper at the risk of lower quality and cost of worker's safety.

Thank God we have OSHA here.

The cost to implement a safety program is negligable compared to the cost of 1 back injury. The costs from OSHA arise when a company fails to follow a safety program, then the fines can be substantial.

Remember that each regulation is in place because numerous people have died. They just don't sit around and create regulations for the fun of it. Each regulation is in direct response to deaths. Then OSHA goes out to the trades in question and solicits suggestions to prevent the injuries and fatalities. So each industry provides its own solution.

They were in paintball from day one, this is just the first you are hearing about it. Next, see above, the rules for fire fighters were developed by fire fighters in response to fatalities. Unless you'd like to go back to fighting fires in jeans and a tshirt and no SCBA?

I am refering to the two out rule. I can't tell you how many times we have pulled up to a house, and NOT been able to go inside and put the fire out because OSHA mandates that we have another back up crew before we go in (no hose line, nothing, just ready to go). The only exception being if we have a "known life hazard". So a little kitchen fire quickly becomes an entire house fire. Not to mention the stupid traffic safety vests that they mandate we wear over APPROVED OSHA + ANSI visiblity rated turn-out gear while responding to anything other than an actual working fire. OSHA

And that rule was set in place by fire fighters not OSHA, OSHA just enforces it.

OSHA takes safety and puts it to the extreme. I work in the Oilfield and the safety standards and requirements that are put on companies are rediculous. OSHA takes safety like people with OCD. Does paintball need more safety standards? No. We need better standards and better management of those standards.

Nah, plenty of stupid people still get mutilated because they think that something can't hurt them if they are only doing it for a minute or that they are invincible.

The true evil is the messed up system that rewards these morons with huge amounts of money for blatantly disregarding the rules and common sense because the opportunity still presented itself. Makes designing functional equipment more difficult. If Dumbo Joe can stick a nail in a shear pin recess and have the machine still function, it is somehow the manufacturer's/designers fault when it tears his arm off instead of stopping because they should have foreseen someone bypassing safety features. It's asinine rulings like those that get us pressure sensors in lawnmower seats, stupidly-expensive consumable safety features, and wealthy one armed morons; not OSHA.

Actaully, it was set by OSHA, why would firefighters randomly make a rule that they wanted OSHA to enforce?? It was ALL OSHA! Please, just do everyone a favor and don't put OSHA anymore into paintball than it already is.

OSHA went to fire fighters who made the suggestion. OSHA then takes the suggestion and creates a regulation. Fire Firegihters came up witht he rule you hate.

As for OSHA in paintball, its in paintball always has been and at the same level, this is just training for employers and employees at fields. The player is exempt from OHSA up and until they become an employee such as a volunteer ref etc.

What we are doing is offering the education in a format that is geared towards paintball fields and their specific needs. No matter what educational services is provided, it does not change the scope of power OSHA has. Our goal is to educate fields and pro shops so that they avoid costly fines and issues that could tenatively close them down, thus removing a place for players to play at.
