Safety Tip of the Week:

Week of April 22, 2019

Drones for military use are an effective means of surveilance of an area that is unsafe and also a great way to avoid casualties.  When it comes to OSHA, the use of drones is becoming more of a reality!  Initially they were being used following worksite accidents and for areas that were considered too dangerous to enter.  But now it is becoming an efficient way to scope out a facility for inspection.  Currently OSHA can only use drones when it is agreed to by the employer.  There is a fine line that OSHA or any organization should not cross so that its trade secrets cannot be compromised.  Unless an emergency warrants the use of a drone or an employer agrees to the use of a drone during an inspection, then that strategy should be acceptable.  Drone use is going to increase dramatically in the very near future.  It just depends on how far the reach goes.  When used as a helpful tool to help save lives and used as the first line of access to a hazardous situation, it can only benefit everyone.  But there needs to be a rules so that rights are not violated.  Read more in EHS Today about OSHA Drones.


Head Protection

Head Protection in an industrial setting is an important aspect of a safety program.  Workers are constantly being exposed to head injuries and should be provided the necessary protective head gear to keep them safe while performing their jobs.  Protection from falling objects, lateral protection from low hanging objects and protection against electrical head hazards should be provided by the employer as part of their safety program.  Head protection must meet the guidelines as outlined in ANSI Z89.1-1986 and OSHA 29 CFR 1910.135.
