OSHA seeks input on mechanical press standard

OSHA published a Request for Information seeking information and public input as the agency considers updates to its mechanical power presses standard. The agency is requesting information regarding the need to update the standard; how closely it should follow the current ANSI standard; the types of presses that should be covered; the use and certification of equipment; presence-sensing device initiation systems; and requirements for press modifications, training and injury reporting. OSHA will use the information to determine action it may take to reduce regulatory burdens while maintaining worker safety. Comments can be submitted here. Comments must be submitted by Oct. 26, 2021.
