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.


Fall Protection

Fall Protection for Workers is one of the most frequently Cited Standards by OSHA
According to the United States Department of Labor falls were the leading cause of death on construction sites in 2013.  Out of 796 total deaths in construction, 294 were caused by falls. Events surrounding these types of accidents often involve a number of factors, including unstable working surfaces, misuse or non-use of fall protection equipment and human error.

A Fall Protection Plan can Help to Keep Workers Safe by Preventing Injury and Death from Falls

Studies have shown that the use of a site specific fall protection plan, guardrails, personal fall arrest systems, safety nets, covers, travel restriction systems and a fall protection rescue plan all can help to prevent many deaths and injuries from falls.

Provide the Right PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) in case an Employee Falls on the Job
Safety Lanyards, Safety Harnesses and Self-Retracing Lifelines are all integral parts of a safety program to prevent falls  Supplying this safety equipment to employees is a small price to pay in comparison to the cost associated with injuries that can happen on the job without it.  If a fall occurs, this type of equipment will help to “halt” its momentum.
