This Safety 2013 conference presentation provides an update on the ASSE Government Affairs Committee.
This conference presentation covers a Canadian perspective on applying the ISO 31000 risk management standard.
ANSI B11 machine safeguarding risk assessment series are recognized standards for assessing risk from machine hazards. They provide guidance on achieving acceptable risk (level which additional expenditures won't result in advances towards increased safety). This article outlines how to perform a machine safeguarding risk assessment to achieve acceptable risk.
The identification and mitigation of human and asset loss situations is a primary objective of the corporate SHE and Risk Management program. The move towards using a risk-based approach to determine the level of protection is evolving in the regulatory environment. Learn how the ISO 31000 (ANSI Z690) Risk Management Principles can be used to create a standardized and defensible framework for identifying, evaluating and controlling workplace hazards based upon risk potential.
Are you confused about OSHA's record-keeping rules and procedures? Do you know the difference between an OSHA recordable injury and first aid only? What the difference is between OSHA 300 recordables and workers' compensation reporting? This article will cover this and more.
This article describes how more effective risk assessments can be applied to day-to-day safety management processes to ultimately ensure that they achieve more reliable, consistent results. Risk estimations using semi-quantitative L*C matrix methods can be made more rigorous. An investigation of an actual fatal incident will illustrate the successful links between decision-making and risk assessments.
Work tool to provide guidance for establishing a risk ranking system.
Readers will learn about the Experience Modification Rate (EMR) calculations, and why the EMR is not a fair evaluation of safety. The article will also address methods to control EMR.
This article covers howRisk Management can be applied to all aspects of the enterprise and how incorporating Risk Management into Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) initiatives helps to foster faster response to high-risk events.
This article is designed to present an assessment of the probability of an event occurring that causes loss. It will examine our tolerance for risk and possible outcomes. For example, on a Saturday afternoon at a soccer game, clouds move in with the sounds of thunder, but no lightning is visible. One coach calls the game but the other wants to keep playing. What risks are the coaches taking? When, if at all, should the coach call off the game? How does this carry over to work? When is risk tolerance too low or too high? Should we ever gamble?
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.
