I am newer to this site but I just wanted to let everyone know that if they have any questions about PPE or NFPA 70e standards, please don't hesitate to contact me. We manufacture safety clothing right here in the USA.

I recently joined with American Electric Power back in November 2008. I am a health and safety professional with over 25 years of experience. My discipline is Industrial Hygiene. One of my three power plants is a coal-fired boiler plant. I would encourage any comments on IH or combustible dust safety.

I am new here and would like to invite everyone to look at my page and view the CBS video and the Fall Distance comparison. This contains new information on fall protection. There is more to come. I'm excited about the opportunity to get this information into the hands of the people who can use it to improve their fall protection programs.

Ministry of Labour

Court Bulletin - Constructor, electrical contractor and supervisor fined a total of $100,000 after worker killed


BURLINGTON, ON, Jan. 28 /CNW/ - Pomico Holdings Inc., P & M Electric
(2000) Inc. and Vlado Kolich were fined a total of $100,000 under the
Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) on January 20, 2009 after a worker
was electrocuted.
Separate investigations by the Ministry of Labour and the Electrical
Safety Authority found that a 600 volt cable was improperly buried and
connected without authorization at a construction site on Harvester Road in
Burlington. A worker from another company, working on cleanup of the site, was
electrocuted and killed when the worker touched a dumpster bin that had made
contact with the improperly buried cable.
Pomico Holdings Inc., the constructor on the site, P & M Electric, the
electrical contractor for the project, and Vlado Kolich, part owner and
supervisor for P & M Electric, all pleaded guilty to failing to ensure that a
warning sign was posted to warn workers of the hazard of an underground
electrical cable, as prescribed by section 44(1) of Ontario Regulation 213/91.
In the case of Pomico, this was contrary to section 23(1)(a) of the OHSA and
it was fined $70,000. P & M Electric violated section 25(1)(c) and was fined
$22,500. Mr. Kolich pleaded guilty under section 27(1)(a) and was fined
$7,500.
The case was a joint prosecution by the Ministry of Labour and the
Electrical Safety Authority. P & M Electric was also fined $60,000 and Vlado
Kolich $10,000 under the Electricity Act.
The fines were imposed by Justice of the Peace J. Woloschuk in the
Ontario Court of Justice, Burlington. In addition to the fine, the court
imposed a 25-per-cent victim fine surcharge on the total, as required by the
Provincial Offences Act. The surcharge is credited to a special provincial
government fund to assist victims of crime.

I am speaking to the leadership group of a utility next week. Does anyone have any recent examples of major accidents in the utility industry that I can use as a learning tool? I acted in relation to 3 Australian lineworker fatalities in NSW and am aware of a lineworker fatality in NZ and another in Victoria recently. Other examples from around the world would be useful.

Ensuring Safety at the Workplace by Preventing Fire

                        Ensuring Safety at the Workplace by Preventing FireLife risk from being exposed in fire is the last thing that a worker can think of. But unfortunately it happens.

This means it is one of the first and foremost responsibilities of the employers as well to ensure such safety.…See More
