NAIMA offers free literature and videos to increase worker safety
NAIMA's "Play It Smart, Play It Safe" video is designed to increase worker comfort and as a result, reduce worker compensation claims. It is aimed at workers who handle fiberglass and rock and slag wool insulation products.
The HSPP established voluntary permissible exposure limits for synthetic vitreous fibers products. The program encourages workers to follow OSHA's regulations, where applicable, on using respiratory protection. Information from the HSPP extensive exposure database offers guidance on when respiratory protection may be needed.
As part of its larger product stewardship efforts, NAIMA also conducts studies with leading research institutes on its member's products to ensure worker safety, fire safety and overall product performance. Fiberglass and mineral wool insulations are among the most thoroughly tested products on the market, thanks in part to NAIMA's efforts.
The HSPP overview can be accessed at www.naima.org. Information is free and can be ordered or downloaded at the site.
