In response to the alarming number of amputations in the United States as well as the National Emphasis Program, OSHA Consultation in partnership with the U.S. Department of Labor/OSHA and the SHARP/VPP Association developed the Amputation Prevention Information Booklet. This booklet is designed to be an aid for front-line supervisors and/or lead persons to assist them in communicating to the workforce on how to recognize and eliminate potential amputation probabilities. There are seven (7) Amputation Prevention Information booklets: Construction/Public Sector, General Industry I, General Industry II, Grain Handling, Die Casting/Metal Fabrication, Poultry, and Sawmills/Woodworking.
The booklet is intended to assist with conducting one-on-one training or group training concerning amputations. During the training, the instructor should communicate the following:
