Yes Don they do get hot! With all this 911 stuff I have a couple different ones. The Air Force one with full open clear face shield is the best. The problem with that N95 if it's disposable is getting a large supply. Why is it less hot?

Also with other more severe exotic virus's the Military one might be better. However, with REALLY SEVERE stuff is a whole suit necessary? Those suits are VERY HOT and I don't see how one could last in one in summer weather!

I have an Nuclear/Biological/Chemical Military gas mask with new NBC filters. Does this qualify for H1N1 protection under OSHA?

I apologize - National Work Zone Awareness Week. And this actually might not be the appropriate forum to talk about it but hey.... Here's the link to the website: http://www.workzonesafety.org/news_events/awareness_week/2010

Thanks! Today begins National Work Zone Safety Week. Some areas are using this week to announce reduced speed in work zones, tougher laws, and even scholarships awarded to the children of workers who were killed on the job.

Michelle - we have DAILY safety meetings, every employee when the first come in the door know they are required to meet for a safety meeting. It is sometimes hard to come up the material on a daily basis, but we cover just about everything from texting to all kinds of home safety too. Meetings are from 5-15 minutes. The key point is to have them thinking about safety when they walk in the door. Hopefully it stays with them through the whole shift.

April is also, “National Distracted Driving Awareness Month"

“National Distracted Driving Awareness Month also is the perfect opportunity for businesses to implement cell phone policies to protect employees. When businesses allow employees to conduct business on cell phones while driving, they are putting their employees at a 4 times greater risk of a crash,” said Janet Froetscher, NSC president and CEO. “NSC provides many resources, including a free Cell Phone Policy Kit, to help businesses protect employees." See this link to read more and download two free posters that might help save an employee, friend or family member's life.

Understanding the ways of conducting shrink investigations

Shrink investigation is essentially about examining the causes of shrink (loss) in retail businesses. Although retail is one of the fastest growing areas of business, the possibility of shrink is very high in this area. It is also an overlooked area, because of which many shrinks that could otherwise have been prevented, do not get prevented.Controlling losses is as important as making profits. In fact, it even precedes profit making. A shrink investigation is a means to understanding where the…See More
