Ladder Misuse

November-21-2014

Ladder misuse can be one of the easiest safety problems to spot as it can be pretty obvious when a ladder is being used incorrectly.  A group in the UK called The Ladder Association educates companies and individuals on the correct and safe way to use ladders.  During their annual Ladder Exchange the group helps organizations trade in their old unsafe ladders for new ladders at a discounted price.  The Ladder Associate has helped take 1000’s of unsafe ladders out of circulation.  The Ladder Exchange program is currently collecting photos from around the world of individuals misusing ladders.  The worse and most unsafe ladder misuse photos are being posted to their Facebook page in hopes to discourage this unsafe behavior.  When the contest is over a winner will be chosen based on the amount of comments or “likes” on the photo.

Safety Phrases

November-03-2014

Rules, signs, checklists, compliance: all important aspects of work place safety.  While these things may get complex and must be regulated by management there is one very important thing that employees themselves can do consistently on a daily basis that will help keep the workplace safe: show concern for others.  The phrase “my brother’s keeper” is a well know phrase that simply implicates that we not only should not only be keeping our selves safe but keeping other safe as well.  John Drebinger, a safety speaker, addressed EHS professionals at the EHS’ Today’s Safety Leadership Conference about teaching employees to use two key phrases to help keep team members safe.

OSHA Injury Reporting Change

September-29-2014

OSHA recently announced a revision to their rule on reporting severe injuries.  The new rule, effective January 1, 2015, states that OSHA must be notified with eight hours if a work related death occurs and within 24 hours if a work related hospitalization, amputation or loss of an eye occurs.   This is a change from the current rule where eye loss, amputation and single worker hospitalization were not included.  Currently if a death occurs or if three or more employees are hospitalized an employer must let OSHA know.

OSHA Electronic Recording

August-22-2014

Back in December of 2013 we shared a blog about OSHA proposing a rule that would require companies with more than 250 employees to submit records electronically on a quarterly basis and companies with 20 employees or fewer in specific industries to submit electronically once a year.  The electronic data would be easily accessible to outside entities via OSHA’s website.
