Written by a well-known utilities and environmental expert, the present book explains how and why federal safety and other regulations apply to facilities and employees in multiple sectors of the green energy industry. The book clarifies what must be done to bring facilities’ operations and job procedures into compliance with OSHA standards and at the same time offers information essential for developing and expanding safety training programs in wind energy, solar, geothermal and recycling facilities, as well as on green roof and weatherization job sites. The first part of the book describes procedures and practices in specific green energy jobs, thus spelling out areas where OSHA standards must be met. Part two reviews hundreds of current safety regulations, rules and standards. Citing documented cases of on-the-job accidents and incidents, the book emphasizes practical methods for implementing occupational health and hazard control procedures, as well as safe work practices.
