General industry can be broadly defined as any industry that falls under the OSHA Standard for General Industry, Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 1910. It is generally accepted that these places of business are static in nature and do not include agriculture, construction, and maritime industries.

29 CFR 1910

Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 1910 is broken down into 21 Sub parts. Though these regulations were designed to cover the safety of general industry employees, they are cited in other Parts of Title 29 to address hazards in other industries.

Why is Industrial Safety Important?

Industrial safety is important as it safeguards human life, especially in high risk areas such as nuclear, aircraft, chemical, oil and gases, and mining industries, where a fatal mistake can be catastrophic. Industrial Safety reduces risks to people, and processes.

Process control and safety systems are usually merged. Maintaining a safe and healthy working environment is not only an important human resources issue, it’s the law. Whether they’re entry-level workers, seasoned veterans, supervisors, or plant managers, the employees need to understand health and safety risks, the steps they need to take to minimize those risks, and common safety standards and compliance procedures. Should we give special care to one of these two areas? Whereto are we heading from this perspective?
