Benchmarking and Performance Criteria
One major staple and unique attribute of the SH&E profession is the ability to share knowledge among peers. This collaboration enhances the knowledge of new professionals, provides the ability to benchmark among peers and most importantly allows professionals to always improve and innovate. To further enhance these efforts, ASSE has created a Body of Knowledge (BOK), which compiles resources on all aspects of the SH&E profession and makes them available to ASSE members.
Food service employment can be, most of the time, injury free. The injuries that do occur are usually the result of failure to follow instructions, inattention, lack of knowledge, or a combination of these and similar factors. An employee can control the injuries by continually observing safe work practices, and calling to the attention of the employer or supervisor those conditions when they could contribute to an accident.
If your area is under a hurricane watch or warning, here are some basic steps to take to prepare for the storm.
Electric kilns used in creating things such as pottery and ceramics should only be used by trained operators. The hazards from electric kilns include electric shock, burns and fire. Safety can be ensured if kilns are correctly designed and properly installed, located, operated, and maintained.
Workers in childcare facilities provide care and education for infants, toddlers and preschool age children. Childcare workers should pay attention to their own safety in the workplace while nurturing children.
Many people using gasoline-powered tools such as high pressure washers, concrete cutting saws (walk-behind/hand-held), power trowels, floor buffers, welders, pumps, compressors, and generators in buildings or semi enclosed spaces have been poisoned by carbon monoxide (CO). CO can rapidly accumulate (even in areas that appear to be well ventilated) and build up to dangerous or fatal concentrations within minutes.
A good safety plan takes into account the many incidents that can affect the health and safety of workers. Bomb threats have become all too common in the workplace and every business needs to pre-plan their response to a bomb threat. Let’s look at bomb threats, procedures to follow, evacuation considerations, and search techniques.

Administrators, coordinators, and teachers know that their schools should comply with Federal or State Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations. However, the task may seem overwhelming! This Safety Checklist Program can help these leaders bring their schools into compliance even when they have little safety and health experience, a busy schedule, and many unanswered questions.
In one easy-to-read source, the Safety Checklist Program provides information needed by schools to maintain safe classrooms, shops, and labs for teachers and students in career-technical education. This information can also be used by colleges and universities with occupational safety and health programs.
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.
