ARC FLASH FACT

The surface of the sun burns approximatley 10,000 degrees whereas the arc flash can heat the air to temperatures as high as 35,000 degrees. Serious burns are not uncommon even at a distances of 10 feet and fatal at a few feet. a report compiled by Capelli-Schellpfeffer, Inc., estimates that 5 to 10 arc flash explosions happen in the U.S. every day, resulting in 1 -2 deaths per day. Food for thought.

Hurricane Gustav...

For those of you along the Gulf Coast, or those who have interests thereof, all eyes should be on Gustav.

Safety on a Shoe string

Free safety websites are great. My first impressions for this one is" SWEET". Looks like lots of cool stuff. Free resources are great when you operate on a very small safety budget.

Mankinds first tool, the hand of course. Hand Safety

Can you imagine any occupation that does not make use of the hand? Hands are so important because of their utility. They provide us with the dexterity needed to perform most daily activities. In fact, hands, as tools, are so versatile and can perform many intricate functions more than any single known tool developed by mankind.



Hand injuries account for 80% of all occupational injuries. This is because the hands are engaged in almost all activities on the job.

There are many… Continue

Safety is HOT.

I'm so excited about this community taking off - I really want to see it succeed. But there's only so much I can contribute personally to a safety community, since I work at a desk 9 to 5 and my biggest safety concern at work is not getting paper cuts. However, in my free time after work and on weekends, I am all about personal protective equipment and safety. Can you guess why?

That's right, because I ride. Two years ago, after being an… Continue

Beware of the Tiger

This is a safety article i wrote for my company and should be published this fall in a Telecommunications Cooperative Magazine. Hope you all can relate and use it with your employees to beware of the tiger.



"Safety rules are a nuisance. They restrict you from doing what you want to do the way you want to do it." "The person who wrote safety rules must have been an old fuddy-duddy who couldn't stand to see people having fun!" "



What you just read or what you might think… Continue

Life Changing KC Innovation in Safety

Great Safety Champions in Business and Unions impact our lives. Probably the best and most exciting innovation that I have seen was in Kansas City in the auto sector.



The new concept came as a result of a death of a young man hit by forklift. Both management and union members joined forces to find a solution. A magnetic track was created that allowed car products to be carried from the plant floor to the truck bays.

There was an immediate elimination of the forklifts. The air… Continue

Response to Marine Oil Spills

Oil spills can wreak havoc on the environment and cause irreversible damage if they aren’t controlled in a timely manner. However, emergency responders need to be trained to react to emergencies quickly and efficiently to prevent more damage. The type of training they receive should depend on their proximity to the spill and whether they need to stop, contain or recover oil from release.For instance, workers who are assigned as early responders to an oil spill should be given more training…See More

Where does GMP Training end and HR training begin?

That pharmaceutical companies need to hire professionals with the requisite qualifications is beyond question. This is not only required for the smooth conduct of activities in their course of their day-to-day work, but also because the FDA has set out its requirements for the proper educational and skill set qualification of employees in this profession in 21 CFR 211.25(a).This FDA section underlines the need for educational qualifications, training and experience to carry out their job…See More
