Safer by FARR: Don't Overdo It!

Overexertion is a very common cause of painful and disabling injuries—and what's especially distressing about overexertion injuries is that they are so easily avoided. That's where you come in. Train your workers on the dangers of overexertion and ways to prevent it. Begin by reminding employees that it is particularly important to avoid overexertion if there is a history of heart disease in their family or if they are advancing in age, overweight, or unaccustomed to prolonged physical…

OSHA will start using the North American Industrial Classification System instead of the older Standard Industrial Classification system to determine which businesses do and don’t have to report injury data.

 

More than 198,000 businesses that…

Keep It In Neutral!

Keeping a car in neutral gear is not a desirable action because the car wasn't designed to move down the road in neutral. Keeping a neutral posture on the job, however, is the most desirable action to take because the human body was designed to work in a certain position in order to be most effective.

Neutral posture = good posture and is an essential part of ergonomics, which is the study of fitting jobs to the people who perform them. Train your employees to achieve and…

Cross reference Tool for comparing Safety Standards

Dear Friends, I'm looking for an audit tool that would assist auditors while making jobsite visits in the US and Canada.  This subject tool would compare the 1910 standards to the 1926 standards to the Mine Safety Standards to the Canadian Standards.  Wouldn't this be a help while working in the US and Canada.  Let me know your thoughts.

Shining a Light on Electrical Safety Training

This is reposted from an article written by Daryn Lewellyn for EHS Today, May 1st 2011.

 

 

Any safety training program, regardless of the hazard, needs to influence and change worker behaviors in order to prevent injuries. It must impact trainees to the degree that they buy into the new safe work practices. In other words, it needs to make a difference.

Electrical safety training that merely covers the work practices spelled out in NFPA 70E and OSHA is lacking in…

A Common Question!



“Why can’t employees just work safe?”



Managers and supervisors often don’t know or have forgotten how hard it is to incorporate safe work practices into the job. Sure, it’s easy for a manager or supervisor to put on a hard hat, safety glasses, and ear protection. But what about the workers who have to deal with fall protection, working around heavy equipment, working in tight spaces in tunnels and confined spaces? Sometimes working safe can be downright… Continue

OSHA needs some John Wayne style true grit

How many articles do I read every day that OSHA is fining some big name industry, to what end. That’s like you or I getting a parking ticket. Put the paltry payment in the quick pay envelope and never worry about it again, or don’t pay the fine and the city or county will take the next ten years to track you down, if they do at all. The case goes to court and OSHA backs down like a cowering pup. I was once part of the big name industry and went through a double handful of OSHA inspections. The… Continue
