Twenty-five years ago I sold my chiropractor practice to focus entirely on industrial musculoskeletal disorder injury prevention and leadership programs. As an ergon- omist, I have had numerous opportunities to learn best practices for implementing stretching programs into any company or facility. Stretching programs require both a financial and time commitment. When considering the initiation of one of these programs, these factors must be weighed out based on the potential benefits and return on investment for each organization.
Does this scenario sound familiar? A three-man crew was attempting to shut down a 23-in. water main when the incident occurred. One worker entered the 10-ft deep valve pit (vault) through the 22-in. manhole opening using a built-in steel ladder and a few minutes later called for help. One workers on top went in to assist and was overcome. The third worker started to enter and realized he would soon be in trouble. He immediately exited and called for help. Both workers died at a local hospital (NIOSH, 1994).
OSHA and NIOSH recommends best practices for staffing agencies and host employers to better protect temporary employees through collaboration and mutual collaboration.
There is a large body of literature on “Safety Leadership and
Management.” Much of this body of information in the field does not
make use of the key ideas and information developed by Peter F.
Drucker, information that could increase its effectiveness.
• Drucker’s work has not yet been fully applied to Safety
• Review and incorporation of Drucker ideas as core principles of
Safety Leadership and Management would likely strengthen
leadership and management in the safety profession.
• KEY: Apply safety management principles in a more effective
manner using Drucker Principles

Standard, contact, and droplet precautions are recommended for management of hospitalized patients with known or suspected Ebola virus disease (EVD) Note that this guidance outlines only those measures that are specific for EVD; additional infection control measures might be warranted if an EVD patient has other conditions or illnesses for which other measures are indicated (e.g., tuberculosis, multi-drug resistant organisms, etc.).
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is providing workplace health and safety information on the Ebola virus on this web page.
OSHA is providing workers with essential information on the Ebola virus and proper precautions on this web page.
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.
Contribute your knowledge and be a part of something big.
