Limited Edition – OSHA Safety Ducks from Accuform

People are flocking to get their hands on our OSHA Safety Ducks

Hunting for OSHA Safety Ducks?

We started releasing our Limited Edition, OSHA Safety Ducks into the wild in 2016 to keep safety top of mind. Year-after-year, the overwhelming interest and excitement around the ducks reminds us they're an essential part of motivating "at-risk" workforces around the world to stay safe in a fun and engaging way. 

Keep them on your desk, in the box, the bathtub, or wherever you want to keep safety top of mind. 

Meet the Accuform OSHA Safety Duck Family

1. Lockout Larry

Released to the wild October 2016

Larry is no quack when it comes to keeping others safe. He understands the importance of properly locking out equipment and machinery. Larry doesn't fly through safety checks, and he only uses quality STOPOUT® products. Most importantly, he knows that it takes a full-featured lockout/tagout program to keep a business afloat and safe.
OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1910.147 The Control of Hazardous Energy:... required the employer to establish a program and utilize procedures for affixing appropriate lockout or tagout devices to energy isolating devices, and to otherwise disable machines or equipment to prevent unexpected energization, start-up, or release of stored energy in order to avoid injury to employees.

2019 Violations = 2,606

2. Haz-Com Haley

Released to the wild May 2017

Chemicals can pose a wide range of health hazards, but that doesn’t ruffle Haley’s feathers. She knows the importance of sharing correct information about chemical dangers and how to protect oneself, so she stocks up on hazard communication signs and labels. She utilizes GHS classification and labeling to communicate with ducks on the other side of the pond and those in more than 65 countries flocking to GHS.

OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1910.1200 Update to Include HCS/HazCom 2020 Final Rule: ...Ensure that the hazards of all chemicals produced or imported are classified, and that hazard information is transmitted to employees and employers. The transmission of information is to be accomplished utilizing hazard communications programs, which included container labeling, safety data sheets, and employee training.

3. Harness Hank 

Released to the wild September 2017

Hank works at height with proper fall protection to prevent accidental flight to the ground. Each year, Hank scoops up a banner for his nest and hard hat stickers for his flock to support National Safety Stand-Down! #StandDown4Safety.

OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1926.501 Safety Standards for Fall Protection in the Construction Industry (Duty to Have Fall Protection): Employees on a walking/working surface (horizontal and vertical) with an unprotected side or edge which is 6 feet (1.8m) or more above a lower level shall be protected from falling by the use of guardrail, safety net, or personal fall arrest systems.

4. Scaffold Scott

Released to the wild March 2018

Scott gets a bird’s-eye view from his scaffolding after carefully inspecting for visible defects and steering clear of power lines. He takes care to install guardrails along all open sides and ends of platforms that are more than 10 feet above a lower level and keeps all surfaces clear of debris.

OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1926.451 Standards for Scaffold Safety in the Construction Industry: Each scaffold and scaffold component must support its weight and at least four times the maximum intended load applied or transmitted to it.

5. Forklift Freddie 

Released to the wild in August 2018

When Freddie moves heavy loads with his trusty forklift, safety is his number one priority. He doesn't want to fly off and injure himself, so he inspects his forklift before starting it. Freddie knows his safety training is a drop in the pond, so he keeps safety messages fresh with Accuform's signs, tags, and lockout devices. With forklift traffic prominently posted, his coworkers aren't Peking around corners and getting hurt.

OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1910.178 Powered Industrial Trucks: Unauthorized personnel is not permitted to ride on powered industrial trucks. A safe place to ride must be provided where riding of vehicles is authorized, and only inspected and approved industrial trucks can be used.

6. Gassy Gary

Released to the wild in November 2018

Gary’s no lame duck. He knows better than to fly into confined spaces without checking air quality or wearing proper respiratory protection. He stays in step with OSHA's guidelines for respiratory protection by providing necessary medical evaluations and fit testing for all employees. To avoid the decoys, he relies on Accuform's quality signs and posters for motivational support.

OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1910.134 Personal Protective Equipment Respiratory Protection: In the control of those occupational diseases caused by breathing air contaminated with harmful dust, fogs, fumes, mists, gases, smokes, sprays, or vapors, the primary objective is to prevent atmospheric contamination.

7. Pinch Point Pattie 

Released to the wild in August 2019

Pattie understands that guards and identification that calls out pinch points on machinery keep her operators safe. Pattie encourages her team to communicate safety concerns and near misses to help avoid fowl accidents. A quick response on her part can prevent a lot of pain and lost time for someone else.

OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1910.212 General Requirements for Machine and Machine Guarding: One or more methods of machine guarding must be provided to protect the operator and other employees in the machine area from hazards such as those created by point of operation, ingoing nip points, rotating parts, flying chips, and sparks.

8. NEW! Ladder Lisa

Released to the wild in March 2021

Lisa knows all too well what can happen when you don't give two flaps about ladder safety. When Lisa was just a fledgling construction worker, she didn't give much thought to ladder safety—after all, she was only 10 feet in the air. But one day, she failed to inspect her ladder, and a wet rung left her on the ground with a quacked rib.

OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1910.212 Each self-supporting portable ladder: At least four times the maximum intended load, except that each extra-heavy-duty type 1A metal or plastic ladder shall sustain at least 3.3 times the maximum intended load. A ladder's ability to support the loads indicated in this paragraph shall be determined by applying or transmitting the requisite load to the ladder in a downward vertical direction. Ladders built and tested in conformance with the applicable provisions of appendix A of this subpart will be deemed to meet this requirement.

2019 Violations = 2,345
2018 Violations = 2,780
