The prevalent use of paints and coatings across many industries and organizations presents a variety of workplace hazards. In many cases, selection and use of appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) is necessary to help control exposures. Respiratory and skin contact hazards are common across most applications. Depending on the type of paint or coating and the specific use conditions, other hazards may be present. These can include fire and explosion hazards, electric shock, fall hazards, excessive noise and other. Prior to selecting PPE for any painting operation, a hazard assessment completed by a qualified health and safety professional is necessary to evaluate exposure risks potentially present.

Crime overall is decreasing, but chaotic events such as extreme weather, domestic terrorist attacks, gun violence, and opioid-related emergencies are increasing, requiring highly coordinated response protocols. From raucous inner cities to sleepy suburbs, the scope and nature of these threats demand a new way of thinking and acting — a new, frictionless collaboration among agencies, departments, and vendor partners.1 Ideally, public safety professionals are already fitted with the latest smartphones, laptops, and tablets to receive targeted information about situations, individuals, and locations before they respond. However, when police, fire, EMT, first responders, and even utility companies can communicate and share data via secure channels, the severity and length of incidents may be lessened, and lives can be saved. This is the next phase of digital age public safety. As more public safety leaders get introduced to sophisticated surveillance and big data technologies, they realize

Every three years, members of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) meet to review, modify and add new National Electrical Code (NEC), or NFPA 70, requirements to enhance electrical safety in the workplace and the home. This year’s code review is well underway: the second draft of NEC 2020 is complete and the annual NFPA Conference and Expo is scheduled for late June. What follows is a preview of what are, in my opinion, the most significant code changes on track to pass. In this blog, I’ll explore the reasoning for each change and the future steps the NEC may take beyond 2020 regarding: Ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protection Service entrance equipment Reconditioned equipment Performance testing Load calculations Available fault current and temporary power This is a high-level overview. In the coming months, my Eaton colleagues and I will dig deeper into each topic as part of a continuing series on the 2020 code review cycle.

Working on energized equipment is one of the more dangerous scenarios technicians face in the field. As a result, there’s been a concerted industry effort to improve the understanding of electrical shock and arc flash hazards. I believe one of the most important standards in this safety push is the restructured language within the 2018 edition of the National Fire Protection Agency’s (NFPA’s) 70E “Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace.” In the past, the standard addressed electrical hazards and risks holistically when considering energized electrical work. But today’s latest guidelines now identify hazards and risks independently and include recommendations for a thorough risk analysis that considers the hazard, the planned work task and potential human error. Together, the changes result in a clearer understanding of energized work and help reduce electrical incidents.

It's just dust, and it doesn't seem that it could be dangerous, let alone explosive. But any combustible material (and some materials normally considered noncombustible) can burn rapidly when in a particulate or finely ground form. Fire and explosion from combustible dust pose immediate and deadly risks to health and safety. If your company is potentially affected by these hazards, please take action now to prevent tragic consequences.
