Safe Money on Fall Protection System

A Simple Step That Will Save You Money on Your Fall Protection System

Fall Protection Equipment and Systems can be a huge investment for a company and often times money is wasted during the process of selecting or designing safety equipment.  When developing fall protection system design or even selecting everyday user equipment, a manager or safety professional will often neglect to consult the people that are actually using this gear.  Many managers feel as though if a “worker” is asked it will cost more and they will ask for stuff that is not really...

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...

Harnessing The Power of The Sun

In SEIA (Solar Energy Industries Association) president Rhone Resch’s 2010 Year in Review, he stated that “solar energy is now one of the fastest growing industries in the United States, creating new opportunities for both large and small businesses.” He’s absolutely right; “According to Renewable Energy Access, demand for solar has by at least 25% every year for the last fifteen years” (The Dawn of Solar Power, Hassan). This growth exceeds all other industries in the US. This...

Fall Restraint Vs. Fall Arrest

Hi there, Let’s take a stroll down the hypothetical boardwalk. Shall we? Let’s say you’re working in an elevated area. And let’s say this elevated area has a leading edge. And let’s say that falling off this leading edge would result in a 50 foot drop to certain death. Okay. Now let’s say you’re exuberant about the breath which enters your lungs each and every morning. And let’s say your excitement for tomorrow motivates your actions today. And let’s say that it’s...
