Hi Everybody: When Don Wiebe sent the original message last Friday I started checking the OSHA regulations for some answers, but was bugged down with other things in the way. In the meantime I've seen all my questiones addresssed. I am impressed with the response and the decision making input for the problem. This is an EHS forum at its best.
