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.


Body Fluid Sorbents and Pads

Body Fluid Sorbents are used to clean up and soak up blood, urine, vomit and other body fluids. When using these sorbents be sure that they are safe to use on flooring surfaces such as hard wood and carpeting.  They should be non-corrosive to surfaces.  It is wise to wear the proper PPE when using these body fluid sorbents.   When sprinkling the sorbent, work from the outer edge to the center of the spill.  We all carry sorb pads that make clean up simple and easy.  Simply put the pad over the spill for quick absorption.
