Fall Protection for Bus Maintenance Technicians

Fall Protection for Bus Maintenance Technicians

Recently we had a potential client tell us that he has his bus maintenance technicians wear non-slip shoes as their fall protection when working on top of buses. The bad news for him and his poor employees is that 1) that’s not a safe form of fall protection and 2) it’s not legal! If you haven’t been in a bus maintenance facility they are typically oily, greasy and slippery. That goes for the bus roofs too. A slip or miss step off of a bus is most likely going to cause a serious injury or...

Harvest Moon

Due east of the mighty Mississippi River, a serene July night consumed the sullied goldenrod fields of Mt. Carroll, IL. as two lifeless teenage boys were pulled from a stainless steel Illinois grain bin. They were Wyatt Whitebread, 14 and Alejandro Pacas, 19. According to OSHA reports, the two boys were “walking-down-the-corn”, creating flow for grain emptying machinery, when the kernels suddenly assumed the nature of quicksand below Wyatt’s feet. The 8th grader began sinking. Pacas...

California Skylights

Skylights are not new nor are the dangers associated with them. Skylights were first conceived by the VELUX founder, Mr. Villum Kann Rasmussen and became increasingly popular in the wake of WWII. (TheBestSkylights.com)  With Europe in ruins, and struggling with shortages in viable commercial and residential space, Mr. Rasmussen's 1942 patented skylights became the perfect solution to allow the conversion of the attic from a storage space to a versatile living and working space because it...

National Safety Council Preventing Slips, Trips and Falls

Hello Readers, The National Safety Council is currently promoting education to prevent slips, trips and falls this June. It is a fact that the majority of worker fatalities are over the age of 55 (a concern if we push back the legal retirement age to receive social security) and it's something we as a safety community should acknowledge. So as we finish our lemonade glass of June and open the pool cover of July, let's be conscious of our older workers and promote a safe and healthy work...

8 Easy Steps to Proper Post-Use Harness Care

The sun sets behind the distant horizon as you saunter from the site where eight hours of sweat were spent in the name of hard work. You unbuckle the harness that presided over you all day and upon pulling your last arm free you do what? Throw it in the sharp-edge-tool-filled toolbox? The bed of the truck? Torn Backpack? Warehouse floor? Maybe the nearest Muddy puddle? Disregard for proper harness care is a choice to ride the lazy river. It only takes a few minutes to properly stow your...
