OSHA Revises Tire Charts With New Standards for Single- and Multi-Piece Rim Wheels

December 08, 2011

WASHINGTON – The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has revised its tire servicing reference materials to address its Materials Handling and Storage standard, which is designed to protect workers who service single-piece and multi-piece rim wheels.

The updated information is available in a portable manual or as three, poster-size charts. OSHA's revised "Multi-piece Rim Matching Chart" provides an updated list of current and obsolete components. The old "Demounting and Mounting Procedures for Truck/Bus Tires" chart is now expanded to two charts that deal individually with tubeless and tube-type tires.

"These updated materials will provide readily accessible information on how to prevent worker injuries and deaths from tire-servicing incidents," said Dr. David Michaels, Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA. "The new format and easy access will simplify compliance with the standard by helping employers provide their workers with vital servicing information."

The revised tire charts are available for download on OSHA's Publications page here.
