Corporate Worker Safety & Health Program for Industrial Painting Projects
Developed under the direction of a Certified Industrial Hygienist and a Certified Safety Professional, the KTA Corporate Worker Safety and Health Program for Industrial Painting Projects is designed to provide guidance on the safety and health hazards typically encountered by contractors on industrial maintenance painting projects. This program is specifically designed for use on projects where the OSHA Construction Industry standards (29 CFR 1926) are applicable. The program contains policies and guidance relative to each of the following general areas: General Safety and Health Provisions; Personal Protective Equipment (including respiratory protection); Fire Protection/Prevention; Use of Flammable/Combustible Materials; Scaffolding and Ladders; Confined Space; Cranes and Suspended Work Platforms; Occupational Health and Environmental Controls; Exposure to lead and other toxic metals; Electrical; and Painting/Paint Removal Equipment. Various safety and health forms and checklists are incorporated into the Appendices of the program to ease implementation at individual project sites. This plan meets the safety and health program requirements of the SSPC QP-1 Painting Contractor Certification Program.
