Compliance Training Tip: Why Should I Implement a Hearing Conservation Program in my Workplace? Excessive noise could be putting your organization at risk. Ongoing exposure to excessive noise in the workplace can lead to permanent hearing loss. It can also increase stress, reduce efficiency, interfere with concentration and cause fatigue. Excessive noise can even cause industrial accidents if employees can’t hear co-workers give them warnings or directions. Hearing loss due to excessive noise is often so gradual that employees may not realize they have a problem until it’s too late. Fortunately, there are simple steps you take to protect your employees’ hearing… Download our free paper today to learn what those steps are. You’ll also learn: • What you can do to prevent hearing loss in the workplace • The OSHA Standards for hearing conservation • How Hearing Conservation can affect the bottom line • And more

Electricity provides us with lights and power, both on the job and at home. It’s such a normal part of our lives that we often forget that all that power can be dangerous, too. We’ve all experienced minor electric shocks, but shocks can be severe enough to kill. Careless use of electricity causes 10 percent of job- related deaths, as well as many serious injuries. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has some very detailed regulations designed to keep electricity from becoming a dangerous hazard.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recently issued a new rule, effective September 2013, which updates OSHA’s 1971 workplace safety sign and tag formats with today’s best practice safety signage designs as defined by the latest American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Z535 standards. The OSHA signage change means that, over time, as employers adopt the newer ANSI Z535 best practice safety tag and sign formats, the United States will increasingly have a single, national uniform system of hazard recognition. Safety signs installed in facilities and public areas, temporary safety tags placed on equipment, and safety labels placed on products will all be designed using the same formatting principles. The outcome of such consistency is expected to be significantly more effective communication in the workplace. That, in turn, should help achieve the objective of fewer accidents and more lives saved from tragedy.

Occupational diseases and even death can be caused by air contaminants or oxygen deficiency in work areas. Employers must provide respirators and training to each employee who is or may be exposed to air contaminants or oxygen-deficient atmospheres when engineering and administrative controls cannot feasibly or effectively reduce exposures to safe levels. Workplaces with respirators must establish a written respiratory protection program that includes respirator selection criteria, employee training, medical evaluations, and fit-testing procedures.

A recent OSHA Info sheet details the adverse side effects caused by contaminated water from improperly maintained emergency eyewash stations. When this safety equipment isn’t properly maintained, the stagnant water that collects has a greater likelihood of harboring potentially harmful organisms, including Acanthamoeba, Pseudomonas and Legionella that are known to cause infections when they come into contact with the eyes and skin or if they are inhaled.

When it comes to emergency shower and eyewash equipment, a ten-degree difference could make all the difference. The right water temperature is critical to ensuring medically suitable results for an injured person. Current ANSI Standards (American National Standards Institute) are referenced by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) when evaluating facilities and mandate a temperature range defined as “tepid.” This is clarified as a 40-degree temperature range for flushing fluids spanning from 60°F to 100°F [16°C to 38°C].

"Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) standard 1584 has been the de facto standard for calculating the arc energy levels at different points in a power system. However, NFPA 70E provides the option of using the Arc Flash Hazard PPE Category task tables for PPE selection. Which is right for you, and what do you need to know about each option? Find answers in our white paper, which describes how both types of analysis systems work and how to be sure you are using the tables correctly."

How much is the life of an employee worth? How much is the loss of a big toe? Or an index finger? These are the questions that keep safety managers awake at night. While there are no good answers, the only way to get a good night’s sleep is to ensure that your company is doing everything possible to make your company as safe as possible. Unfortunately, simply meeting OSHA standards isn’t good enough. Would you want to drive in a car that was deemed the “least” unsafe, or one that was a model of safety? Make safety a priority by allocating yearly funding, finding the best trainers (whether external or internal), and empowering employees to work with managers to create easy-to-understand safety procedures and protocols. Encourage people to think first, act second, and consider safety protocols as not just a rote function, but an essential fact of daily practice that might just save their lives. Want to learn more?
