Alison Kaelin on OSHA’s Proposed Changes to Lead Standards

Coatings industry leader and consultant Alison B. Kaelin joins our podcast to discuss proposed changes to the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Lead Standards for General Industry and Construction. OSHA is currently accepting comments on the proposed new rules through Oct. 28, 2022.

Topics include the expected timeline and its implications for U.S. coatings professionals; what companies should be doing now to prepare; the role of engineering controls and new technologies in fields such as personal protective equipment (PPE), safety, equipment, and materials in assisting with the transition; and what industry organizations like AMPP and its members can do to help.

(Editor’s note: The deadline for OSHA’s comment period was Aug. 29 at the taping of this podcast, but it has since been delayed until Oct. 28.)
