The disturbing news from Pennsauken, NJ where the worker fell into the chocolate vat and died shows the need for fall protection. I have seen many incidents where employers use the passive approach and then nothing is followed thru, in otherwords lets do nothing. It is sad this continues to be an issue in the work place. When will the people who operate these worksites finally understand fall protection should be proactive and not reactive.

We have been fabricating portable fall protection that protects workers in these environments, and all too oftend hear words such as we never had an incident thus justifying not addressing these issues. At which point are these individuals to be held accountable. I have over 30 years experience in the construction and industrial sectors as well as Safety.
To me it is utter nonsense when this type of accident occurs. Use the equipment and your employees go home at the end of the day, I'm syre their families would apprieciate that.

I am new here and would like to invite everyone to look at my page and view the CBS video and the Fall Distance comparison. This contains new information on fall protection. There is more to come. I'm excited about the opportunity to get this information into the hands of the people who can use it to improve their fall protection programs.

‘Synthetic lethality’ targets cancer cells by damaging vulnerable DNA

By designing small molecules that can “turn off” kinase enzymes stuck in the “on” position, they have managed to ward off cancer’s attack. More recently, scientists have focused on ways to help the body’s own immune cells seek and destroy cancer cells.Enter the concept known as synthetic lethality. Researchers have long known that a cancer cell hobbling along with one broken gene is vulnerable. Knock out another key gene, they have discovered, and the cell will topple.The notion of killing…See More
