I have noticed a lot of people wearing prescription glasses thinking they meet the requirments for industrial safety glasses and have no clue as to how to assess whether they are industrial safety glasses or not!!! Has anyone else come across this?

Fall Protection

Over the past several months I have encountered people wearing fall protection who have no clue about what they are doing. Most common is someone up 12 feet and tied off at their fett. They are 5'11'' or better with a 6 foot lanyard!!!
Has anyone else come across this?

Videos and anecdotes

I've talked before in discussions about the use of silly, funny videos before, during, and after training to keep the associates entertained and also drive future training. If you would like to see some copies of videos that I use, email me at jbeck@srob.com and I'll share them. I'm sure many of you have seen and used them as well. Maybe you have some I don't. Let's make each other laugh.

Training Powerpoint

Some people have been asking for a copy of the Communicating for Safety Excellence powerpoint that was discussed in the Supervisor training discussion. I can't get it to upload correctly here. If you would like a copy of it, just email me at jbeck@srob.com. I'd be glad to share it along with other things. Thanks

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.

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.

Safety is HOT.

I'm so excited about this community taking off - I really want to see it succeed.

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!" "
