OSHA PPE final Rulemaking
OSHA recently issued a final rulemaking describing the types of PPE for which employers should pay. This is a quick synopsis of
the final rule.
• Effective dates - This final rule becomes effective on February 13, 2008. The final rule must be implemented by
May 15, 2008. These dates allow for employers to adjust their PPE payment policies to accommodate the final
• "Employees exposed to safety and health hazards may need to wear personal protective equipment to be
protected from injury, illness, and death caused by exposure to those hazards," said Assistant Secretary of
Labor for OSHA, Edwin G. Foulke Jr. "This final rule will clarify who is responsible for paying for PPE, which
OSHA anticipates will lead to greater compliance and potential avoidance of thousands of workplace injuries
• The provisions in OSHA standards that require PPE generally state that the employer is to provide such PPE.
However, some of these provisions do not specify that the employer is to provide such PPE at no cost to the
employee. In this rulemaking, OSHA is requiring employers to pay for the PPE provided, with exceptions for
specific items. The rule does not require employers to provide PPE where none has been required before.
Instead, the rule merely stipulates that the employer must pay for required PPE, except in the limited cases
specified in the standard.
• The items excepted from payment by this rule are:
o Non-specialty safety-toe protective footwear (including steel-toe shoes or steel-toe boots) and non-
specialty prescription safety eyewear, that is allowed by the employer to be worn off the job-site;
o Shoes or boots with built-in metatarsal protection that the employee has requested to use instead of
the employer-provided detachable metatarsal guards;
o Logging boots required by 1910.266(d)(1)(v);
o Everyday work clothing; or
o Ordinary clothing, skin creams, or other items used solely for protection from the weather.
Earn an Additional COC!
In October 2005, the Board of Certified Safety Professionals announced that
CSPs who complete a safety-related certificate program containing two or more
seminars may earn one COC in addition to the COCs earned for the seminars
contained in the program.
CSPs can earn an additional COC for completing the:
• ASSE Certificate in Safety Management
• The Executive Program in Safety Management
Both of ASSE's certificate programs are eligible for the additional COC. If you
have been considering participating in these programs, this is an excellent time
to begin. If you have completed some portion of these programs, we can assist
you in scheduling the remainder of your seminars so that you can receive this
bonus COC. Contact ASSE Customer Service at 847-699-2929 for details.
CHMM Credit – The Institute of Hazardous Materials Management (IHMM) has
pre-approved certain ASSE seminars for CHMM recertification credit. Seminars
which have been pre-approved list the number of CHMM CMPs with the seminar
description. ASSE will certify and maintain a record of your attendance. A copy
of your Certificate of Completion for the seminar may be used for claiming
CMPs towards your CHMM recertification. If you have any questions regarding
the reporting or credit authorized, please contact the Institute of Hazardous
Materials Management, 301.984.8969 (Fax 301.984.1516).

ASSE Core Legislation and Regulation Principles
When commenting on legislation and regulation, the following are the core American Society of Safety Engineers principles upon
which such comments should be drafted:
1. ASSE represents the interests of the safety, health and environmental (SH&E) professional, the SH&E profession
and the Society.
2. ASSE is committed to providing commentary to government agencies and individuals to assist and guide decision-
making so that decisions are based upon good science and sound technology.
3. Federal and state agencies such as OSHA, MSHA, NIOSH, EPA, DOT, and CSB have served to improve the safety
and health of the American workplace.
4. ASSE actively encourages and promotes member SH&E professional involvement in governmental decision-making,
whether in seeking public office, appointment to agency leadership roles, government employment, or appointment to
volunteer advisory roles and boards.
5. ASSE does not believe a one-size-fits-all approach in governmental efforts to improve workplace safety and health
can succeed. Increased workplace safety and health is best achieved through a cooperative partnership between
employers and employees.
6. When action is necessary to ensure and improve workplace safety and health and/or the profession, ASSE will
mobilize SH&E professionals to initiate actions under the guidance of the Governmental Affairs or other appropriate
7. Government resources are best focused on determining the causes of workplace injuries and fatalities and efforts to
inform and encourage employers to apply such information. The Society regards compliance as only one facet of an
effective and efficient safety and health program.
8. ASSE supports the voluntary national consensus standards process and, where appropriate, governmental reliance
on such standards to increase workplace safety and health.
9. ASSE supports efforts to combine private and public capabilities to address workplace safety and health concerns.
