Semi-Permanent Fingertip Tactile Sensitivity Loss in Cold Environments, Brian J. Finder

Current research indicates that acute non-freezing cold exposure elicits various short-term performance problems with the human extremities; namely a reduction in blood flow (Abramson, Zazela & Marrus, 1939), hand sensitivity (Nelms & Soper, 1961), the level of upper extremity dexterity (Clark, 1961), and maximal grip strength (Barnes & Larson, 1985). The present body of scientific knowledge has yet to confirm that repeated/chronic cold exposure causes a more long-term or semi-permanent form of nervous system impairment in humans.

Food at Rest is Food at Risk, Michael J. Fagel

In the wake of the events of September 11, 2001, it must be understood that the terrorist threat exists in the nation at all times, and it is certainly possible that some form of agroterrorism, perhaps in conjunction with biological or chemical threats, could happen and therefore, preparation is necessary. This is especially true in the realm of agroterrorism, where such an incident, even one that is in reality relatively minor, could have severe effects on consumer confidence, the supply-and-demand economy, and the various associated businesses that would be affected by some form of terrorism-caused outbreak related to an American farm.


10 Years After 9/11, ASSE

The events of September 11, 2001, led to profound changes in government policies and structures to confront homeland security threats. Most notably, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) began operations in 2003 with key missions that included preventing terrorist attacks from occurring in the U.S. and minimizing the damages from any attacks that may occur. DHS is now the third-largest federal department, with more than 200,000 employees and an annual budget of more than $50 billion.


Ask the Experts: Record Retention Tips, ASSE

We have all read or heard about accounting firms or other firms that got in trouble for shredding documents after a lawsuit arose or if trouble was brewing. As a safety consultant, you do not want to be in that position. It is important to have a policy on how you handle client records. If you are fairly new in the business, this may not seem like a big issue. But after years in business, your client files can start taking over your space. If you are home-based, you may find that you are parking your car in the street because closed files are filling your garage space. Should you keep all that paperwork? Is there a better way to keep it? Why keep files? What exactly should you keep, how, where and for how long?


Ask the Experts: How Deep Is the Ocean, How High Is the Sky, How Long Is the Contract?, ASSE

Question: What should be included in a contract? The last “Ask the Experts” column looked at records retention and touched on the importance of contracts. Many professional liability insurance companies will not write insurance coverage unless you use a contract or the premiums you pay for errors and omissions (E&O) insurance will be considerably higher. So what should be included in those contracts?

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.
