In response to the alarming number of amputations in the United States as well as the National Emphasis Program, the Arkansas Department of Labor and Licensing/OSHA Consultation in partnership with the U.S. Department of Labor/OSHA and the SHARP/VPP Association developed the Amputation Prevention Information Booklet. This booklet is designed to be an aid for front-line supervisors and/or lead persons to assist them in communicating to the workforce on how to recognize and eliminate potential amputation probabilities in the workplace. There are seven different Amputation Prevention Information Booklets: Construction/Public Sector, General Industry I, General Industry II, Grain Handling, Die Casting/Metal Fabrication, Poultry, and Sawmills/Woodworking.
