Tick-borne diseases such as Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and ehrlichiosis are a significant concern for many thousands of workers who have frequent and unavoidable exposure to tick-infested habitats. Treatment of clothing with permethrin, a nontoxic chemical with insecticidal, knockdown, and repellent properties, is highly effective against ticks. However, most permethrin products must be reapplied after several washings to maintain insecticidal activity. Recently, a factory-based method for long-lasting permethrin impregnation of clothing has been developed by Insect Shield, Inc., that allows clothing to retain insecticidal activity for over 70 washes. This study provides preliminary evidence that long-lasting permethrin-impregnated clothing may be highly effective against tick bites.

Performance textiles and fabrics are rapidly bringing apparel and footwear products into the 21st century. Manufacturers today are innovating at breakneck speed and bringing to the market synthetic textiles and fabrics with enhanced performance characteristics, or that feature embedded fibers or topical applications. This has led to the widespread introduction of advanced performance apparel and footwear that offer you new levels of comfort and safety. At the same time, sorting through claims regarding the performance characteristics of these advanced textiles and fabrics can present real challenges for manufacturers, retailers and you. At a minimum, the myriad of vague, conflicting or unsubstantiated marketing claims and characterizations used to promote these materials often result in frustration and disappointment. And fraudulent representations can unnecessarily expose apparel manufacturers and retail buyers to potentially hazardous chemicals and other risks.

he pursuits to reduce costs and avoid unplanned downtime remain primary operational goals in industrial plants. A convergence of factors has created an opportunity for industrial organizations such as manufacturing, oil and gas, chemicals and water treatment companies to aggressively pursue both. Although the pace of investment can be relatively slow in industrial automation (IA), technological advances, economic trends and market pressures have created an environment in which plants are compelled to modernize operational technology (OT) in order to ensure maximum efficiency and minimum process interruptions. Simply put, OT is getting old. The industrial sector is heavily capital-intensive and traditionally utilizes equipment with long lifecycles. Organizations with such outdated automation systems are in dire need of OT modernization to keep up with the pace of change, customer demands and business priorities, and reduce the risk of critical failures and costly downtime.

Let’s clearly explain the relationship between the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) and OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard (HCS): each are policies related to chemical and material safety, written to protect workers from the hazards of inherently Dangerous substances. OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard has been in place since 1994—it’s federal law (1910.1200). And so now the HCS is changing to reflect the GHS, and this means that the federal law is also changing and that businesses in the U.S. will have to make adjustments to chemical safety management plans to remain compliant. This ‘last minute GHS breakdown’ will bring you up to speed with this big change in federal chemical safety regulation by exploring how the GHS is being incorporated into the HCS, answer some of the biggest questions out there for private enterprise, and demonstrate how businesses will be directly impacted.

When a worker uses an eyewash station that is not maintained, organisms in the water may come into contact with the eye, skin, or may be inhaled. Workers using eyewash stations after exposure to a hazardous chemical or material may have eye injuries that make the eye more susceptible to infection. Also, workers with skin damage or compromised immune systems (e.g., transplant recovery, cancer, lupus) are at increased risk for developing illnesses from contaminated water.

Exposure to potentially hazardous chemicals isn’t limited to industries like oil and natural gas. With routine contact to various cleaning chemicals and other hazards, employees in the hospitality/resort industry are equally at risk to injury. In fact, studies show that hotel workers have an injury rate 25% higher than all service workers, with housekeepers experiencing the most injuries. These numbers are due to exposure to corrosive chemicals in certain cleaning products that have the potential to not only irritate skin, but to also cause severe burns if splashed on skin or into eyes. It’s a risk for all workers in this industry, including the staff at Extended Stay America, the largest and most popular extended-stay hotel chain in North America.
