OSHA Compliance products

Our Founder was a small business person who learned the hard way! He thought he had a safe work place. He thought his kitchen was compliant with all notices and safety products for his employees. But after a work place accident he discovered that postings needed updating and electrical equipment needed Lockout/Tagout signage. After receiving his fines he simply asked "where is the store with all the OSHA compliance products I need" and the inspector told him there wasn't one! So he made a… Continue

Tiger Tacos Thunder Down Under

Came here to chat and aint nobody home (boo-hoo) so I figured I'd try out this blogging app ... I'd love to see a "group" where I can toss out my taco for group chewing and all that jazz; not like I'm all that interested in selling tacos or getting approval, but it's interesting to hear professionals thoughts and this is an interactive site (vs. some where you get looked at like selling scum).…

Suiting Up for an Acid bath

The next step was to remove the top portion of the containment to facilitate rinsing down the hoppers. Notice the man lift has also been covered in plastic and the operator is fully protected.

We had successfully contained a large amount of off gas in our improvised containment. Had the gas escaped it would have attacked all of the metal objects inside of the shop. The trapped gas was slowly vented to the out… Continue

Give Gift Cards and Give Your Employees a Swift Kick In the Pants, Too

Recently, a company who uses our programs referred us to another company who was trying to curb recordables. "Your program sounds amazing - we'll kick off the program next month!" they said.



Wow. Either our programs really are that easy...or maybe the company's management really doesn't care and just needs a program to fall within guidelines. I kept waiting for them to call and ask questions about our programs...surely they wouldn't buy a heavy piece of equipment without talking to… Continue

Dust Explosions and Corporate Homicide Prosecutions

A very informative article by Cesar de Castro was recently posted in the New York Law Journal, "Sorting Out the Law on Homicide Prosecutions Against Corporations." which addresses issues concerning corporate homicide prosecution such as workplace fatalities arising from dust explosions. The article mentioned the People v. Warner-Lambertt case where in 1976 a dust explosion at the American Chicle plant in Queens, New York, killed six people and injured 55.



Magnesium stearate (MS) was… Continue

"Covering up Osha Incidents to Gain Incentives"

I've been asked quite a bit, lately, about how our programs keep participants from covering up accidents and incidents out of fear of losing incentives. A lot of programs encourage this activity, but our programs don't. How? Because our programs reward participants on behavioral modifications that include pointing out incidents, the potential for accidents, and the avoidance of accidents.



Our participants gain incentives by being safe and by encouraging others to be safe. Our… Continue

Taking a safety program public (via ISHN)

Dave Johnson, editor of ISHN, wrote a great article about taking your safety program public.



In it, Dave writes, "Going public with your health and safety program must be more than a PR exercise to earn trust and credibility with your target audience(s). Be honest and “real.” Do more than recite dry facts and statistics. Be creative. And show a sincere interest in using your story to help… Continue

Risk Versus Gain

No one could figure out what happened. He was just going fishing. It was a beautiful winter day and he knew all the good spots. He had plenty of gas, his boat was in good shape, and he always had the necessary safety equipment on board. Being a retired Navy Boatswains Mate, he knew the water and he knew all about boats. He had won safety awards. His family had no idea what went wrong. I did, even before we started the search.



I don’t remember who spotted him first, but there he was;… Continue
