Each amendment is discussed either separately or in combination with other, related amendments in order to clarify the intent and impact on working plumbers. Numerous links are also provided to the model codes, statutes, and rules referenced in the codes and amendments.
The Safety Training is based on OSHA recommendations and focused on the everyday hazards and ways to make the job site safer as well as what to do when an injury occurs.
