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.


Chemical Resistant Gloves

Chemical Resistant Gloves come in a variety of different materials and styles. The determining factor in the choice of glove is the chemical that will be in use while wearing the gloves.  There is not a one glove fits all chemicals solution.

Chemical Resistant gloves are tested on three criteria to determine what type of  glove is to be worn for each specific chemical:

Permeation
– determines a rate of how long a glove can be submerged in a test chemical The results show the higher the rate- the more chemicals passing through.

Degradation- shows the physical properties of a material changing due to the application of a chemical

Breakthrough time- analyzes the amount of time between the initial contact with the chemical on one side of the glove until detection of the chemical on the other side.
