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.

Amendment 80 Factory Trawlers, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) performed a scientific review of workplace safety in the Amendment 80 (A80) trawl fleet to understand the trends and identify opportunities to enhance safety for crews on these vessels. Researchers found that the annual number of injuries in the A80 fleet was 34 per year during 2001-2012 for a total of 409 work-related injuries (25 fatal, 384 non-fatal). The risk for non-fatal injuries was 43 injuries per 1,000 full-time equivalent employees, about four times higher than average U.S. workers.

Reducing Musculoskeletal Disorders among Airport Baggage Screeners and Handlers, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)

Baggage screeners and handlers at airports are exposed to manual baggage lifting and handling that are associated with work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs). The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) evaluated two mechanical lift aids to determine if they could reduce the risk of WMSDs. The two mechanical lift aids reduced some physical WMSD risk factors such as hand loading and spinal compression force.

SH&E Industry 2015 Salary Survey, Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP)

The purpose of this research project was to better understand compensation trends among Safety, Health, and Environmental (SH&E) professionals. Since 2008, the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) has measured and reported salary and employment trend data as a service to its certificants and SH&E professionals. In 2015, BCSP hoped to develop a more complete SH&E employment trend and salary picture by inviting five partners to participate in the data collection process. Partners: ASSE - American Society of Safety Engineers; ABIH - American Board of Industrial Hygiene; AHMP - Alliance of Hazardous Materials Professionals; AIHA - American Industrial Hygiene Association; and IHMM - Institute of Hazardous Materials Management.
