    OSHA REVISES RECORD-KEEPIMG REGULATIONS; BOWLING CENTERS PARTIALLY EXEMPT
    " The final rule becomes effective on Jan.1, 2002, and will affect approximately 1.3 million establishments. OSHA is publishing the rule now to give employers ample time to learn the new requirements and to revise computer systems that may be used for recordkeeping."
    "Bowling centers, and other industries classified as low hazard retail, service, finance, insurance and real estate sectors, as wellas employers with 10 or fewer employees at all times during the year, are exempt from most requirements of the new rule."...........CAN YOU POSSIBLY BELIEVE THAT?

    If at first you don't succeed, try, try, again. Then quit. There's no use being a damn fool about it." -W.C.Fields

    Re: OSHA

    That sounds to good to be true. It would be real good for the mom and pop operation with just a few employees. I'll tell you though, in Calif. there are bowling centers being fined right now, for things like no guards on their machines, and for not having the osha book there. Oh, and also for not having records of monthly safety meetings. Just thought I would mention it.

          Good tip about having ALL your guards on for safety and in case OSHA does drop by.
          Just aa reminder that you need an MSDS(material saftey data sheet) for every chemical in your center.
          From lane oil all the way down to simple glass cleaner.
          If you order a case of cleaners they sometimes come packaged with the supplies, if not ask the manufacturer for one and keep a file of them in the office or your tool box in case they are needed.

            Re: OSHA

            How many of you AMF guys have the center trapezoid guards under the control boxes? Only a few places I've been in even have that guard
            How about the screws to hold the ball lift guard at the top? Does anyone have screws in those holes?
            I saw in a manual a guard that goes from the pinwheel pulley over to the pinwheel cover, protecting you from the belt. Do you have this guard?
            Guess if OSHA comes in, we're all screwed [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif[/img]

                Re: OSHA

                You think OSHA is tough, try working in a military estashbliment. I have to keep an MSDS on everything, right down to super glue.
                Everything I use also has to meet approval with the base hazmat pharmacy. I'm not supposed to use my washer and dryer, because our drain system hasn't been rated as being industrial.
                Had the hazardous waste guy question me on the grease tank we have out back to dump used cooking oil in from the snack bar about it, was worried that we'd have to have someone from hazmat come to check it out because some had spilled on the ground.

                  Ah yes, the wonders of working for the military or a corporation.
                  Our stripper waste has to be put into barrels & taken away by a local waste company because the oil content is more than 10 times the amount allowed by law that can go into the sewer. If I remember correctly, it costs about $1.60 per gal to have hauled off.
                  We also have to have an MSDS for everything we use, before we get it, or else the receiving dock has to refuse it. This goes for everything you’d normally think of as a chemical (stripper, oil, paints, cleaners, etc) as well as things that you wouldn’t think of as chemicals. (pens, “urinal cookies”, grinding disks, etc) It can get very confusing.
