101 Critical Days, Safety First and Safety Always

The first holiday weekend of the summer launches 101 critical days of recreation, travel and fun. More fun-filled plans are made from Memorial Day through Labor Day than any other time of the year. Extra fun can also increase the chances of accidents and injuries. The increased possibility of an injury challenges the most safety conscious people. It should also be remembered that severe summer weather and all that comes with it creates a grave environment if people aren’t prepared and aware.… Continue

Abandoned Iron Mines Inspire Photo Exhibit

Abandoned mines are a safety concern significant enough for MSHA to have awarded $3.9 million to mining states in December 2003, 16 months after the Quecreek incident in Pennsylvania, so they could create electronic, georeferenced maps of their mines and archive original mine maps. Quecreek was an inundationg caused when miners at the mine of that name accidentally broke into an adjacent, abandoned mine and were trapped by an inundation for three days before being rescued.

Safety Criteria for employees to get a safety award

Hey Folks, I'm looking for some basic safety performance criteria that I can give my managers and foremen to judge their employees. I'm giving out THINK SAFETY coolers to my Public Works managers and asking them to pass on the cooler to the employee that he thinks deserves to use it for the week. As I've been thinking more about my incentives/coolers, I realize that a checklists of some type to rate the employees on how well they do their jobs from a safe behavior standpoint would help the… Continue
