This presentation covers ergonomic trends and OSHA activities that may likely affect you and your workplace.
This presentation provides an in-depth overview of the ISO 31000 Risk Management standard.
This international standard provides principles and generic guidelines on risk management… it can be used by any public, private or community enterprise, association, group or individual. Therefore, this standard is not specific to any industry or sector
The research in this paper draws upon leadership theory and corporate governance to explore the role of board members and senior executives in safety leadership and safety governance. Three criteria of safety leadership have been identified from existing safety leadership literature – vision, personal commitment, decision-making - with an additional fourth criterion of transparency developed based on alternative models of safety leadership.
Manufacturing firms are always looking for ways to improve productivity, eliminate waste, improve quality and shave costs. One area that often gets less attention than more tangible, easy to measure factors such as the cost of raw materials or equipment, is the value of front line employees, both workers and supervisors. While many companies might say that their people are their greatest asset, it’s surprising how many organizations do a less than ideal job of effectively hiring the right people for the job. One reason is that many manufacturing organizations see the hourly employee as an interchangeable and easily replaced cog in a much bigger machine. This article talks about why that shouldn’t be the case.

Well run safety organizations hold their leaders
accountable for the personal safety of those working in
their areas. While establishing accountability is important,
most leaders remain ignorant regarding what this means
in terms of their evolving safety leadership. Do they
possess strong safety leadership traits already, or
unknowingly, do their leadership styles increase the
exposure of their teams? How do leaders get an accurate
assessment of their current safety leadership?
Several publications discussing the ambient air asbestos concentrations cite selected references, many of which did not perform original sampling. A frequently cited publication, the U.S. Department of Health Services, Public Health Service, Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR)
Toxicological Profile for Asbestos (Toxicological Profile) did not perform original sampling, but reviewed and described the airborne asbestos concentrations specified in numerous publications.
The main objective of this study was to compare the performance of LR models and FL models by constructing two sets of models, one set for each, and predicting possible health effects of occupational vibration exposure among stone cutting workers in Taiwan. The root-mean-square-error (RMSE) was used to assess the accuracy of each model in terms of number of correct predictions.
We propose the simple seat satisfaction questionnaire (SSSQ) as the first graphically enhanced seat satisfaction questionnaire that assess the users’ overall satisfaction with, and the ergonomic value of seats. Through its proposed scoring system, this questionnaire will help identify areas in need for ergonomic intervention which will not only decrease the incidence of low back pain, but will also increase productivity among workers.
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.
