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.

Ventilation Fans for Confined Space

Employees working in confined space have hazards to contend with on a daily basis.  A ventilation fan is an important piece of equipment for these workers.  It will recirculate the air and keep temperatures lower which helps the comfort of the workers by making it much easier to breath.

A ventilation fan will bring air in from an area, compress it and then direct it to the confined space.  There are two types of fans that can be purchased, one will suction draft and the other will force ventilation.  The benefit of properly circulated air cannot be over- estimated especially when hazardous air is forced out of the area.
