Law enforcement officers work in dynamic, high-risk traffic situations, driving patrol vehicles and working along the side of the road. Motor vehicle related events are the leading cause of on-the-job deaths for law enforcement officers in the United States. NIOSH has several research activities and publications focusing on motor-vehicle safety among law enforcement officers. Law enforcement agencies and officers can use the following information to reduce crashes and motor-vehicle related fatalities.
Worksite health promotion programs designed to improve worker health, such as those that help workers stop or reduce tobacco use, have traditionally focused on individual factors and not taken work-related exposures and hazards into account. Through its Total Worker Health™ Program, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recommends an integrated approach to addressing personal as well as workplace safety and health factors.
An interactive, online, game-based training tool for small business owners, workers and others interested in learning the core concepts of hazard identification. After using this tool, users will better understand the process to identify hazards in their own workplace.
During the past few years, companies have been moving toward developing environmental, safety and health management systems in order to organize their regulatory and internal company requirements and information. It is necessary for safety and environmental resources to understand the benefits in developing a management system that will meet their company’s specific needs.
An ENMS plan can be developed to formalize any energy management programs in line with the organization’s procedures allowing for the proactive pursuit of optimal energy solutions that will lead to environmental, societal and economic benefits. This plan can be implemented over all operations, facilities and services.
This manual provides an overview of statistical methods that are applicable to the various life cycles of a typical environmental project. The manual explains basic statistical concepts and their application to environmental projects. The manual may be used as a desk-top reference, as it provides step-by-step instructions for conducting a variety of useful and common statistical tests for environmental data. This manual is not intended to replace statistical texts or electronic statistical software. It does not present derivations of statistical formulas or a comprehensive treatment of statistical concepts, but focuses on the application of select statistical methods.
This Engineering Manual (EM) provides information about the design of systems to monitor, collect, transport, and treat gas from municipal, industrial and hazardous waste landfills. The EM describes various landfill gas (LFG) emission control techniques and presents design procedures relative to each. The following topics are discussed in this EM: a. Reasons for LFG control; b. Theory of LFG emissions; c. LFG and condensate characteristics; d. Estimation of LFG production; e. LFG collection and treatment design considerations; f. Operation and maintenance (O&M) requirements; and g. Regulatory requirements.
This manual provides guidance in the mechanical and electrical design of navigation lock and dam operating equipment and control systems for both new construction and the rehabilitation of existing projects.
This manual prescribes the requirements of the Radiation Protection Program of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) contained in Engineer Regulation 385-1-80, Ionizing Radiation Protection. It is to be used when activities utilize or handle radioactive material (which includes radioactive waste) or a radiation generative device.
The primary purpose of this Engineer Manual is to provide guidance for evaluation of the feasibility of in-situ air sparging (IAS) for remediation of contaminated groundwater and soil. A secondary purpose is to design and operational considerations for IAS systems. The foundation of Corps of Engineers environmental work is the Environmental Operating Principles as specified in ER-200-1-5. These seven tenets serve as guides and must be applied in all Corps business lines as we strive to achieve a sustainable environment.
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.
