In preparation for the July 4 holiday celebrations and firework displays, OSHA reminds employers to properly train workers and ensure appropriate measures are taken to prevent severe and fatal injuries.
OSHA's web page on the pyrotechnics industry addresses retail sales of fireworks and fireworks displays. The page provides information on common hazards and solutions found in both areas of the sector and downloadable safety posters for workplaces. It also includes a training video demonstrating best industry practices for retail sales and manufacturers based on National Fire Protection Association consensus standards.
