    Washington – A new guidance document from OSHA outlines injury prevention measures for avoiding hazards involved in rigging operations within the shipyard industry.

    The guide sheet details how shipyard workers can be exposed to various hazards, offers measures that employers should implement to prevent deaths or injuries, and provides training information and posters.

    “Employers who follow the guidance provided in this injury prevention sheet will create a safer, more healthful work environment for their workers,” OSHA administrator David Michaels said in a press release.
