An article discussing the increasing and changing focus on safety & health, particularly in India.
In today’s fast-paced world, company leaders, managers and OSH professionals alike want the efficient, easy answer. Several GHS compliance deadlines are nearing in 2015 and one has already passed. All employers were required to have trained their employees on new
label elements and the SDS format by December 2013.
All chemical manufacturers, importers, distributors and
employers must comply with the modified provisions
of the final HazCom rule by June 1, 2015.
Any process that is not efficient (i.e., lean) in its search for increasing effectiveness will overburden those supporting it. Lean does not mean less. Rather, it is a focus on value-add and the continued identification and removal of activities and efforts that add waste, or, more simply put: greater value through less work. As the 1990s brought the popularity of lean methodologies and lean
thinking, a natural evolution to Behavior-Based Safety (BBS) was not far behind.
Research shows that consistent management of all workplace safety matters builds a safety culture that results in reduced workers’ compensation claim frequency. Learn how in this article.
All organization, whether large and complex or small and simple, require some type of management system to oversee their safety efforts. The collective formal actions on the part of a company to manage safety activities are known as a safety management system (SMS).
OSHA and NIOSH recommends best practices for staffing agencies and host employers to better protect temporary employees through collaboration and mutual collaboration.
There is a large body of literature on “Safety Leadership and
Management.” Much of this body of information in the field does not
make use of the key ideas and information developed by Peter F.
Drucker, information that could increase its effectiveness.
• Drucker’s work has not yet been fully applied to Safety
• Review and incorporation of Drucker ideas as core principles of
Safety Leadership and Management would likely strengthen
leadership and management in the safety profession.
• KEY: Apply safety management principles in a more effective
manner using Drucker Principles
Notes from the Safety 2014 Key Issue Roundtable - Expanding Consulting Opportunities through Relationships.
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.
Mobile technology can be used to improve workplace
safety and increase the efficiency of a safety
program. This presentation focuses on the breadth of
mobile applications that are available to safety
professionals for use in enhancing their organization’s
safety program performance, and examines
a case study that demonstrates the effectiveness
of mobile applications
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.
Contribute your knowledge and be a part of something big.
