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.

Protective Clothing

Keep yourself safe from chemical, biological and environmental hazards by wearing protective clothing on the job.

Evaluate the hazards in the workplace to choose the best type of protective clothing for your workers.  Protective Clothing will create a barrier of protection for workers in occupations where they are exposed to materials such as chemicals, dust, dirt, body fluids, biohazards and mold.  The first step to choose the right protection for your workforce is to evaluate the hazards that workers are exposed to on the job.

Tyvek disposable clothing has the barrier protection built right into the material in the manufacturing process.  Other brands coat the clothing with a special barrier protective material.

FR Clothing is made according to standards that have been issued for the manufacturing and testing of this type of special clothing for flash fire and arc flash environments.  It offers the worker time to escape because the clothing does not ignite as it would with non-FR work-wear.
