    OSHA safety act
University complying
UNL is becoming a safer place for its employes and students to
work, study and play, the director of UNLs Department of
Environmental Health and Safety (DEHS) said.
Edward Simpson, Jr., said UNL is moving toward compliance
with the 1970 Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA)
regulations. The University, however, has not been forced to
comply with OSHA standards, he said.
"The state has not adopted the provisions of the act," he said.
"If Nebraska adopts the provisions of OS! A, then all state agencies
must control hazards to safety.
Best interests
"It is in the best interests of university employes and students
to begin moving toward compliance with OSHA standards,"
Simpson explained.
But UNL is not moving toward compliance with OSHA
standards as fast as it could, Earle Brown,. DEHS engineer, said.
Brown said belt guards must be installed on some small power
equipment and hand rails must be installed in some buildings, to
name a few hazards to eliminate before UNL complies with the
OSHA regulations.
"It will take several years to make small changes such as repairs
on equipment, before UNL is in compliance with OSHA
regulations," Brown said.
Lack of money
Another problem facing the DEHS is the lack of money to make
building repairs, Brown said.
"Funds are bottlenecks," he said. "It will cost several million
dollars for UNL to comply with OSHA regulations and the biggest
expense will be construction to build or remodel campus buildings.
"The funds for major construction projects just are not
available," he said.
Brown also said the DEHS has issued safety glasses and ear
protection in areas where they are needed. In danger areas, safety
devices must be worn to comply with OSHA standards.
"If the University is safe for employes, it will be safe for
students," Brown said.
