Dog bite attacks occur each year in the U.S., which require medical treatment. Field employees
account for many of these dog bite victims. Each year, thousands are seriously injured by dog
bites. Medical bills for treatment of these dog bites are astronomical. Regrettably, the emotional
damage to the victims is even higher. When a dog bites once, odds are, the dog will bite again.
Knowing what to expect and how to ward off an attack are key factors in minimizing the injuries
and potentially saving a life.
Green tobacco sickness is caused by nicotine exposure from handling tobacco
leaves and may cause nicotine poisoning, also called
Green Tobacco Sickness (GTS), with symptoms including nausea and vomiting.
Many modern industrial operations create dust as a by-product. In certain conditions, some of these dusts can release hazardous amounts of energy when ignited. But how do you know which dusts? What can you do to reduce the risk of a dust explosion? Why do they occur? It is the purpose of this presentation to answer these questions. The attainment of this knowledge will allow you to use a systematic method of hazard assessment and mitigation to provide the maximum protection of the employees and assets of your organization.
Like many industries we have the usual hazards; electrical, fall hazards, confined spaces, equipment operation, and more. We also have to deal with large animals like cattle and horses. We operate 365 days a year—regardless of weather, storms, or holidays; the animals in our care must be fed, and cared for every day.
Many immigrants take jobs in industries unfamiliar to them when they come to the U.S. This means workplace safety training is critical. However, immigrant workers frequently report not receiving any safety training on the job, or the training that they do receive can be low quality.
Mobile technology can be used to improve workplace
safety and increase the efficiency of a safety
program. This presentation focuses on the breadth of
mobile applications that are available to safety
professionals for use in enhancing their organization’s
safety program performance, and examines
a case study that demonstrates the effectiveness
of mobile applications
Fatalities from grain bin entrapments are on the
rise. This presentation will offer video demonstration
of specific solutions for finding, isolating
and rescuing an entrapped worker from a bulk
commodity container. Pre-planning with local
agencies, regulatory compliance, simplicity and
safety will be emphasized.
On July 28, 2010, 14-year-old Wyatt Whitehead and Alejandro Pacas, age 19, died in a grain engulfment incident in Mount Carroll, IL. This incident headlines the recent rise in the number of grain- related entrapments. Since 1978, more than 800 fatal and nonfatal grain entrapment cases have been documented. In 2001, 18 incidents were recorded, and the number has increased every year since.
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.
