751 Rural Road Safety: How to Reduce Accidents for Rural Road Users, Brian S. Hammer

Some estimates are that rural roads have a 3 times higher accident rate than all other roads. Recently Map-21 eliminated the High Risk Rural Road program in an effort to streamline funding and may eliminate Federal dollars being targeted to the rural road system. The problem will only be getting worse. The changing demographics that characterizes the urban/rural interface has not been well researched and not the result is it is not well planned. A collective approach will be needed to reduce accidents on rural roads and that educating drivers who drive on them, farmers to non-residence, will be the key to further reductions.

Prevention and Control of Dust Explosions in Industry, Chet Brandon & Dale Machir

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.

What is the BOK?

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.
