Had OSHA walk into one of our locations yesterday and made us unplug the radio we were enjoying listening to because it was connected to the outlet with an extension cord. What we would do with out them?

There, their and they're. It's really that simple.

If I am not mistaken (which does happen sometimes), it is ok to plug into an extension cord as long as it isn't "daisy chained", meaning an extension cord plugged into another extension cord, or an extension cord plugged into a surge protector/power strip. May want to check into that if they are going to try and punish you.

I have made plenty of bad choices in my life, but at least I was never a Marine!

Yep, it's those kind of little things that demonstrate why so many people don't want to own businesses. I've had to deal with four bogus OSHA reports over the last ten years filed by disgruntled employees. It wasn't fun, especially considering OSHA's Administrative Law Judges (the folks that decide your appeals) are payed by OSHA... think that's a conflict of interest?

Actually, the code says, in short, that an extension cord is only a temporary solution and can only be used for a brief period of time. Any long-term item, such as a table lamp, radio, toaster, microwave, etc. has to plugged directly into a plug.

Thanks to OSHA, work is safer than being at home. Check with your local hospitals as to when most accidents occur... on the weekend! It's much safer to be at work! That's why I say that if we're going to ever get serious about safety, we must first ban weekends and holidays.

Well, if the extension cord was laying across a walkway it is a hazard. We had the same problem with our timeclock, it was located at the will call counter and was plugged in via extension cord on an adjacent wall. We received a "violation" because the extension cord required a heavy rubber overlay so you cannot easily trip. Understandable.

This one was laying on the wall five feet above the floor, not a hazard to anyone.

I'd like to visit an OSHA person's home, I bet one could write a book.
It all comes down to the pay off. We have a company here that I will not mention(Nucor Steel) That's a death trap.

Welcome my son, Welcome to the machine
