I know some of these laws may seem annoying but they are there to protect worker safety.
If I wanted to wear a hard hat & buy new cord every time they get dirty. I would go work in the Union. & I understand OSHA & the EPA being around huge jobs like those.
My jobs are all new housing. No need for a hard hat unless it hails out. It doesn't matter.If they want to hand you a fine/ they will find something wrong.
The only way around OSHA is to not have employee's. Their nothing you can do about the epa. Build a dirt berm around the mixer.
