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
The following article are answers to frequently asked questions about the safety of this medical evacuation and the necessary infection control procedures to protect patients and healthcare providers in U.S. hospitals.
This resource provides information on environmental infection control in Hospitals for the Ebola Virus.
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.
Workers tasked with cleaning surfaces that may be contaminated with Ebola virus, the virus that causes Ebola hemorrhagic fever (EHF), must be protected from exposure. Employers are responsible for ensuring that workers are protected from exposure to Ebola and that workers are not exposed to harmful levels of chemicals used for cleaning and disinfection.
The NLM Emergency Access Initiative (EAI) was activated in August to support healthcare professionals working on the Ebola public health emergency in West Africa.
TheEAI is a partnership of the National Library of Medicine, the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, and the Professional/Scholarly Publishing Division of the Association of American Publishers and other publishers. EAI provides temporary free access to full text articles from major biomedicine titles to healthcare professionals, librarians, and the public affected by disasters.
Access to biomedical literature through the Emergency Access Initiative is only available to those affected by the disaster and for those providing assistance.
CDC has created an Ebola microsite, a collection of selected web pages, that can be embedded within any website. With a simple embed code, a hospital, health system, library, or health department website administrator can pull in a collection of dozens of CDC pages, a news feed, and a Twitter feed featuring the most current Ebola content, guidance and resources for healthcare practitioners. The content is updated by CDC and requires no updating by the host website. The embed code for this microsite is available in CDC’s new syndication site, the Public Health Media Library, https://tools.cdc.gov/medialibrary/. The Library offers the microsite as well as 60+ Ebola HTML web pages. Images, infographics, videos, and other media are also being a
The NLM National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) created an Ebolavirus resource that includes a specialized database and provides users an easy way to search and retrieve protein and nucleotide sequences related to this pathogen (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/genome/viruses/variation/ebola/). The resource also aggregates links to Ebolavirus data at NLM and important links to other Ebola-related resources.
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.
