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.


Water & Wet Chemical Fire Extinguishers

A Water Fire Extinguisher fights fires that are classified as Class A. They are commonly called APW (Air Pressurized Water). This type uses a steady stream of water to put out fires from wood, paper, cloth, trash and plastics.   You can think of this type of extinguisher as a big squirting water gun.   They contain water and pressurized normal air that will cool the fire. An APW puts out the fire by taking away the heat by absorption.  They weigh about 25 pounds when full and stand about two feet tall.  You will recognize them because of their silver color.  They are simple to use and relatively easy to clean up after the fire.

A Wet Chemical Fire Extinguisher fights commercial kitchen fires & designed to supplement commercial fire suppression systems.  These are easy to use and very effective in fighting cooking fires.
