Heavy D's Death Not Unheard of in Fall Protection Field

 Recently I read an article in the LA Times about the tragic death of 80’s rapper Heavy D; which forced me to think of all the people that we aim to protect on a daily basis. 



An autopsy revealed that a deep leg thrombosis caused a pulmonary embolism and in turn caused Heavy D’s death on November 8th 2011. In layman’s terms he died of a blood clot that traveled…

Harvest Moon

Due east of the mighty Mississippi River, a serene July night consumed the sullied goldenrod fields of Mt. Carroll, IL. as two lifeless teenage boys were pulled from a stainless steel Illinois grain bin. They were Wyatt Whitebread, 14 and Alejandro Pacas, 19.

According to OSHA reports, the two boys were “walking-down-the-corn”, creating flow for grain emptying machinery, when the kernels suddenly assumed the nature of quicksand below Wyatt’s feet. The 8th grader began…

Hello Jack,

Thanks for sharing the residential OSHA fall protection article. The National Roofing Contractor's Association has great concerns and comments concerning this ruling. I mostly agree with Tom Shananhan (NRCA risk manager) stating that "Most falls occur when no protection is being used." Unfortunately, regulations do not promote safety, they mandate safety. It is the company management that promotes safety.

What is Service Level Agreement and what needs to be included in a SLA?

Today's world is different from the one our previous generations grew up in. Business activities have shot up in multifold ways. As business grows, activities required to make them run grow, too. The growth of the provision of services has added a new dimension to business. When business is merely about purchasing goods from a manufacturer or distributor and selling them at the retail level; there is no implicit or explicit, written agreement per se about the transactions made between the buyer…See More
