Safety Expectations: Finding a Common Denominator, Vladimir Ivensky

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.

743 Measuring Your Risk Assessment Tool, Ken Newby and Brenda Madley

Measurement tools generally plateau at a minimum (or consistent) level of compliance. If a business changes their measurement requirements, the business will change their minimum acceptable compliance. Through this logic, a measurement tool will drive improvements to a business’s compliance activities.

744 The 'Internet of Things' (IoT)--Opportunities and Risks, David Loomis and Brian Wohnsiedler

With recent developments in connectivity, technologies have spurred the adoption of internet- connected “smart” devices for remote sensing, actuating, and intelligent monitoring using advanced analytics and real-time data processing, often referred to as the ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT). Risk management is a core business activity of all enterprises, large and small. Safety professionals are often directly responsible for operational risk management or are consulted on operational issues by senior management. Therefore, the modern safety professional must be educated on emerging hazards, the ‘Internet of Things’ being foremost among them.
