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.

First Aid Kits

First Aid Kits should be a staple in the home and the workplace.  Accidents happen and it is wise to be prepared when one does.  Even if a minor accident happens, having a well- stocked kit is very helpful.  It is much easier to have all of these safety supplies in one place rather than having to scramble when an emergency arises.  A kit should always go along on any camping, boating or hiking trip and it’s an important item to take along on a vacation. Select Safety Sales offers many kinds of Kits.  We have soft sided designs that are small enough to take anywhere and larger ones that are perfect for any home or workplace.  These kits should be periodically monitored to make sure that none of the contents have expired.  It's also a good idea to add your doctor, hospital and other emergency personal's phone numbers to your First Aid kit. If an emergency arises, you will be fully prepared.
