Originally posted 4/19/09 here: http://safetyphoenix.blogspot.com/



Musculoskeletal injuries are one of the most common types of injuries in the workplace. The objective of an ergonomics program is to identify, evaluate, and fix the work areas, tools and job tasks that cause those injuries. Ideally ergonomics is a team-based approach that strives to better fit the tools, tasks and the workspace to the employee instead of… Continue

Corporate Complacency Toward Safety Programs

Originally posted 4/18/09 here: http://safetyphoenix.blogspot.com/



Companies, especially as the economy gets tighter, look for ways to save money. In far too many companies, safety training and compliance is still viewed as costly federal mandates, rather than a program with significant proven bottom-line savings. Both company management and the safety department itself have become complacent in the proper running of an… Continue

"There Should Be A Law Against That."

I'm new at this so, I can't say that I've looked at enough of the messages, blogs and so on to have seen my topic yet. However, I would like to comment on Commuting to and from Work. I'm sure you all have heard the phrase, "there should be a law against that." We allow children and adults to stand on the sidewalk at busy intersections, with signs begging your attention at a time and place that is proven to be the leading cause of motor vehicle accidents. "Intersections" This bewilders me!

Forklift Traffic Control System

Our company understands that safety does not just happen; it requires commitment by everyone, from the production line to upper management.

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
