In today’s economic environment many companies are striving to reduce costs in every aspect of their plant operations. Decision makers often target personal protective equipment (PPE) for cost-cutting measures and implement changes without fully understanding the impact on worker safety.At the same time companies are trying to reduce their PPE expenditures, OSHA is stepping up enforcement activity and adding inspectors. Companies can achieve cost reduction mandates without reducing worker…See More
In talking with our laser equipment manufacturer he kept referring to "our Laser Safety Officer" and when I told him we didn't have one, he said we should because OSHA requires it. I have looked on the OSHA site a few times now and cannot find anything referencing this "must-have" position. Does anyone else here use lasers for manufacturing and do you have said officer within your company? Is there an ANSI standard that addresses this? Thanks for any help you can offer!* The gas we primarily…See More

I watch a few shows religiously. Deadliest Catch, Ice Road Truckers, and Ax Men are among them. I can't help but wonder when watching some of these shows how the employer can get away with some recognized dangers they are exposing their employees to. Anyone ever hear of OSHA going after anyone after seeing video evidence of these infractions? What are your thoughts?
Does anyone know if OSHA/NFPA/ANSI standards require the use of certain color combinations to denote aisle ways or specific hazards? I have to replace some tape in our warehouse and production areas and before I do I wanted to check with some other safety professionals. We currently have black/yellow tape marking aisle ways, red/white for the clear area around electrical panels, and black/white around doorways with out swinging doors.So I guess my question is, do I need to follow whats already…See More
Hello Everyone,Our local fire department no longer offers "live fire" training with extinguishers. We only allow our safety committee members to use them in the event of a fire. That being said, what is the best and most cost effective training for a small group (~10 people)? We looked at using the BullEx system but that was too pricey for my company at this time. I am going to be training our members in the coming months on extinguisher operation. Here is what I plan on using for training…See More
Jason, I've noticed the spelling and all I can say is oh well! I think the point has been made and proven and that is all I can ask for! I'm I saying that safety doesn't have any responsibility in this no, but unless given the authority the only thing we can do is run it up the ladder.
The banter has gotten old that is for sure and certain. I don't think Toes has much more to give than that. Sorry shouldn't have said that it was unprofessional! :)
Thanks for the backing!
Yes I am in great need of a job! I'll have to check that out thank you Jason. I appreciate the support from everyone on my page right now. My Dad died just six months ago, Mom's been gone now for 10 years, brother's in Vegas and I feel very alone right now.
Jason, welcome to the Safety Community. I hope you will find the Safety Community to be a tremendous resource to meet your goals. If you have the time, we would benefit from your knowledge and experience with Forum discussion(s).
ICE - In Case of EmergencyProgramming of Emergency Contact Numbers in your PLATEAU Cell PhonesICE – In Case of Emergency - programming of your cell phones with ICE is a concept that was developed by a paramedic in England. It was realized that most of his victims did not carry emergency contact information but did carry cell phones. So the campaign started was to get people who carry cell phones to put in a listing of ICE in their cell phone directory with a number that should be called In Case…See More
