Knowledge Library Home
Help Is Needed!
There are an enormous number of topics to be covered in Occupational Safety & Health. This Library is in desperate need of all those who can contribute! And, just like Wikipedia, it's meant to be a living document. Information changes and new things come along all the time. For this Knowledge Library to be effective, the knowledge needs to be accurate, kept up-to-date, and be easy to use. Your contribution to the site is invaluable.
Are you researching a topic that you're unfamiliar with while you prepare for an inspection or to issue a citation? Create a wiki page to collect your notes and thoughts. This can be tremendously helpful for you and for others.
Do you have a collection of notes already collected? Transfer them over to the Knowledge Library! If everyone shares their experience, we can all gain from it.
Please help as you have the time! Contact Kevin for details!
Welcome to the OSHKY Knowledge Library! Get started by clicking the links below or on the left-hand side of the page.
Here are some tips for getting around the KL:
- They're arranged by category of topics.
- Italicized words indicate it is a wiki "page."
- Non-italicized words indicate it is a wiki "category," which is a collection of pages for a certain topic.
- Click the "►" symbol beside a category name to expand it and show the items within that category. The "▼" symbol indicates an expanded category. Categories contain "subcategories" and pages.
Remember: This website and its information is expected to grow and change a great deal as it develops. Let me know if you have any ideas!
Secretary Ramsey issued Administrative Order 2018-001 to delay enforcement of the new beryllium rule. This keeps Kentucky in step with federal OSHA's rule delay. The order delays GI enforcement until May 11, 2018 and delays enforcement of the PEL and STEL for the construction and shipyard industries until the same date. However, the other "ancillary provisions" of the standard for construction and shipyards "until further notice." https://labor.ky.gov/announcements/Pages/Announcement5.aspx
The Labor Cabinet has a new face for the Internet. The labor.ky.gov website has been updated.
