The responsibility for loss prevention begins with the highest level of management and continues down through every level of supervision and eventually to every employee.
Many power generation and peak generation facilities across the U.S. employ gaseous hydrogen storage and delivery systems. Hydrogen is an efficient way to cool generators and allows plants to
produce a great deal more power than would otherwise be possible using other less-efficient cooling media.Improperly handled, hydrogen is uniquely dangerous because of the amount of potential
energy it contains and because it is easily ignited to explosively release this potential energy. A typical
tube trailer is equivalent to 5,585 lb of TNT.
Heat is a common hazard for public sector employees who work outdoors or in hot indoor
environments. Yet, heat-related illness can strike any worker. These illnesses typically result from employee exposure to hot and humid conditions, especially when wearing heavy clothing, using bulky PPE, performing physically demanding tasks or working in direct sunlight. Personal risk factors such as age, personal fitness level and medication consumption can also increase the risk for heat-related illness.
Improving job site safety, responding to emergencies, and analyzing incidents
after the fact are enhanced when worker location can be monitored and recorded
throughout a project.
A safety culture exists in every organization right from day one; it cannot be built, created or pursued. Safety cultures may be good, bad, mature or immature. If an organization wants to improve its
culture, it must nurture its exisiting safety culture until safety is seamlessly integrated into the organizational culture.

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.
