I think the employer should supply masks and ear plugs. The others (bite gloves, hydro table, nooses and helpers) should be provided unless there is another person available whenever needed to assist the groomer by holding or lifting dogs and cats.

If OSHA ever becomes involved in the grooming industry, I will quit.  Most of the things we groomers do is not really all that "healthy".  How many of your wear earplugs?  Goggles?  Masks?  For those of you that groom cats, how many of you follow all the safety proceedures there?  I admit it, I don't because it interfers with my grooming.

I believe in a clean shop, time to lean, time to clean.  I also take every precaution to be sure the pets left in my care are safe.  I treat them the way that I would expect someone to treat one of my pets.  I don't need OSHA coming in and telling me what to do.  I know that the "yucky" shops are out there and there are groomers that don't think twice about walking away and leaving the pet unattended, but, the problems the industry is having will not be "cured" by OSHA.

I agree. At my husband's job he has to take and pass OSHA courses and it seems like it would really get in the way of grooming efficiently.

OSHA has their place, and it is not in the grooming industry.  As stated before, they are not concerned for pet health/safety.  Now the Dept of agriculture would be a different ballgame. Although their plates are full of enough helpings for a lifetime.  They need to think about subdivision and HONEST employees that won't accept payoffs.  I think that we need to work on some type of groomer licenceing, and I know that I am going to get a  mixed response as well when I say, I'm not sure that CMG testing is the way to judge licencing.  Our goal should start with the animals SAFETY, then move on to the actual appearance.  Is there any talk of or already exsisting, licensing test course and certification that it not going to break our banks?  Something like the bloodborne pathogens cpr certifications, where you have a class and get a certificate that day?
