Benchmarking and Performance Criteria
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.
This presentation will review a managed approach
to preventing slips, trips and falls with key emphasis
on facility design not addressed in the
International Building Codes and ADA. Applying
human factors with Prevention through Design
strategies starting with walkway surface material
selection; use of color and contrast at transitions;
planning pedestrian travel into a facility, stairway;
and entrance design will be discussed.
This presentation will provide updates on research
from the NIOSH Division of Safety Research that
will be of use to safety professionals in a variety of
industries. You will learn about new NIOSH
products and findings they can use to improve
safety in their workplaces.
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
Relationships between Risk Management principles
and PtD will be presented. PtD principles are
combined with risk assessment tools to be integrated
with ANSI/ASSE Z690.2011. PtD principles/
tools should be an integral part of management,
practices and the business process of the organization.
SH&E professionals could play a significant
role in ANSI/ASSE Z690.2-2011 implementation.
Even if you conceptually agree with Prevention
through Design (PtD), how do you begin implementing
it in your organization? While implementation
is not done alone or overnight, this presentation
will provide participants with a recommended
process and a tool to help them begin employing
PtD within their organizations.
Everyone using a fall arrest system needs to know
whether it will stop them from impacting a lower
level. Unfortunately, clearances are so complicated
that most people try to ignore them. The
presenters will develop three simple formulae to
easily determine a safe clearance for almost any
Fall Arrest System.
This is a historic document titled "Occupational Safety and Health Laws in the United States, Mexico, and Canada". This document would be of value to those SH&E Professionals with goblal responsibilities including Mexico and Canada. The document gives and overview and summary of each country and then does provide some comparisons.
OSHA Lockout/Tagout Standard exempts traditional lockout methods if access to hazardous energy sources or moving machine parts are routine, repetitive and integral to the use of the equipment for production, provided that the work is performed using alternative measures which provide effective protection (such as interlocked guards). Outlined are risk assessment methods in ANSI Z244.1 to evaluate whether alternative methods will provide proper protection to the worker.
This Safety 2013 conference presentation provides an update on the ASSE Government Affairs Committee.
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.
