780 Fundamentals of SH&E: Basic Safety Management, Joel N. Tietjens

780 Fundamentals of SH&E: Basic Safety Management Presentation from Safety 2015.


A1 Construction Site Modeling for Construction Safety Education, Nick Nichols

This modeling project involves not only the construction of a three dimensional model, but would also entail the analysis of Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Construction Safety Standards and accident case study research applicable to the work undertaken. This model approach to teaching about “construction safety concepts” has been effectively utilized in the Construction Safety course (SFTY 3553) offered in the Department of Occupational Safety and Health at Southeastern Oklahoma State University (SE) .


A2 Modular Implementation Success in Nano-Safety: The Impact of Engineering and Technology Majors, Dominick E. Fazarro, Jitendra Tate and Walt Trybula

Professors at two four-year universities in the southwest two four-year universities in the southwest took a proactive approach to create a proposal to the Nanotechnology Undergraduate Education Division of The National Science Foundation (NSF) to educate students so that they will have the knowledge to make wiser and more informed decisions when selecting nanomaterials in products, providing appropriate workplace safety, and considering environmental implications. The grant was funded for two years.


A3 Engaging OSH&E Students in Research through a Research and Development Course, Lu Yuan

This paper presented a commonly used process to engage students in research through a Research and Development course. Illustrated by two examples of student research projects, the pros and cons of this unique way to recruit undergraduate students for research were discussed. Compared to the industrial internship, the Research and Development seemed to have an equally valuable influence on student outcome attainment as well as job placement, although more analysis is warranted to test if there is any statistical difference.


A4 The Use of a Hybrid Delivery Methodology to Promote Active Learning in Safety Courses, David Freiwald and Michael O’Toole

The transition of Introduction to Aerospace Safety, from a conventional to a hybrid delivery methodology can be considered to be successful. Based upon the qualitative data obtained from learning outcomes, weekly reading comprehension assessments, and the perceptions of the students themselves a marked improvement was seen across groups in both scholarship and satisfaction. Student reviews of the hybrid methodology display a high degree of satisfaction with the revised course – despite the fact that many were unaware of a difference in delivery methodology.


775 Strengthening the Impact of Safety Leadership, Dominic Cooper

This paper explored the impact of effective safety leadership and employee engagement. Beginning with a practical definition of safety leadership, it highlighted the benefits of effective safety leadership, the known features of ineffective leadership gleaned from process safety disasters, and three different safety leadership styles, while presenting evidence of their impact on various features of safety performance (supportive environments, employee engagement, safety behavior and incident rates) based on 328 academic safety leadership studies.


776 OSHA's Enforcement and Significant Changes in 2015 NFPA 70E, Doug Tellin

One of the biggest problems with electrical hazards is that electricity cannot be seen, heard, or even smelled until it’s too late. It is very difficult for people to give the proper respect for arguably the most powerful hazards in a facility when it virtually invisible. In recent years Arc Flash has been given a lot of attention. Explosions and burn injuries are easy to visualize compared to the invisible hazards such as shock and electrocution. This seminar will help guide employers and employees in the direction of becoming compliant with the latest standards and enforcement of these standards


777 Safety Eyewear and ANSI Standards - Seeing Is Believing!, Neil Powell

This presentation will bring new meaning to the phrase “seeing is believing.” It is not often understood what qualifies eyewear to be labeled as safety certified. Sometimes it is not even understood there are standards governing safety eyewear. This course will equip attendees with increased knowledge and understanding in the following areas: reasons to use safety eyewear, features available and technologies used to produce safety eyewear, meeting safety standards, meeting testing requirements, and understanding standards enforcement.


What is the BOK?

The Body of Knowledge project is dedicated to creating a living reference that represents the collective knowledge of the Safety, Health and Environmental profession. While the preliminary work has begun, there is still more to do. The purpose of this website is to introduce subject areas that will eventually be part of the Body of Knowledge, and to gather feedback on the future direction, and ongoing assessment of what needs to be completed.
