Risk Management to Achieve Production, Quality Work and HSE Incident Mitigation, Tania Van der Stap

The attached powerpoint explains the Entropy Model - an incident/loss causation model - which illustrates how risk affects production, quality and HSE concurrently. The model explains 4 steps for risk mitigation. The explanation is provided in the ASSE paper I've also uploaded.


Hiring a Drone Operator: Understanding Your Liability, Robert Hopson

The technology for drones or unmanned aerial systems (UAS) is developing. The use of these aircraft to capture aerial photos and data is becoming readily available. As a result, commercial drone operators are becoming more prevalent and available for hire. Here are some best practices to adopt when hiring a commercial drone operator.


Right-Sizing Your Risk Management Program, Pam Walaski

Most OSH professionals would agree that a current evolution is underway about how we practice. This article demonstrates that organizations of just about any size can develop and implement an effective risk management program by understanding the larger picture of risk management and its essential concepts and then right-sizing as needed.


Managing Risk Perceptions, Vladimir Ivensky

•Misjudging risks posed by specific hazards may lead to incidents. •Correctly assessing and evaluating risks is one goal of OSH. •This article reviews perceptions of hazards and controls to illustrate the management of risk perception.


Safety Expectations: Finding a Common Denominator, Vladimir Ivensky

Over the past decade, occupational injury rate reductions have primarily affected low-severity incidents, while serious injury and fatality rates decline more slowly. •One reason may be that operational leadership presumes OSH risks must be controlled equally regardless of severity potential. •This article discusses OSH risk assessment techniques as applied to zero harm programs, and ways to bring OSH expectations and strategies to a common denominator among various parties involved in a project.


OSHA Standards Why Do They Take So Long?, Jim Maddux

OSHA staff members are often asked, “Why do standards take so long?” In fact, as the saying goes, if I had a few dollars for each time I have been asked this question, I would be rich. OSHA is a complex agency involved in various types of work. OSHA staff inspect workplaces; set enforcement policy; issue guidance; maintain current web pages; develop and deliver training; administer voluntary programs such as partnerships, alliances and the Voluntary Protection Programs; conduct oversight of state OSHA programs, consultation agencies and education centers; and manage and administer in the federal government bureaucracy. The main reason that OSHA standards take so long is because the regulatory process is designed to be slow and deliberate.


Is Your OSHA Program Discriminatory?, Michael Davis, Mary R. Reaston and David D. Keyser

Reducing injuries and creating a safe work environment is critical to reducing costs and increasing productivity. More companies are developing incentive programs to promote safe behavior. However, problems arise when these programs are discriminatory.


714 There's Gold in Workers' Compensation Data, Deborah Weigand and Stephen Bennett

To demonstrate to executives that resources, both capital and human, should be allocated to improve safety and health, our profession must be able to quantify the financial impact that our actions will have on various systems within the organization. Although there are several databases that can assist in this endeavor, our focus within this paper will be workers compensation (WC) data. In the remainder of the paper, a variety of info rmation will be explored which may be available from your WC claim administrator and can be u sed to design strategies to prevent and mitigate loss.

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.

No news articles found.


It's OK to get Social with the BOK folks:
