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.

Consultants vs. Culture Can the Two Work Against Each Other?, Terry L. Mathis

For the past 3 decades, two trends in safety have been on a collision course: the use of safety consultants and the inevitable focus on improving safety culture. Why a collision?

Evolving Trends in Improving Safety & Security in Schools, Larry G. Holloway
