Selecting Safety Footwear: Technology Makes It More Efficient

Use Technology To Streamline Your Safety Footwear Program

In the tough economic times we’ve all faced in the last few years, some tough decisions have had to be made. Some things have had to be cut out of the budget. Without a healthy bottom line, companies are in real danger.

At the same time, many companies have realized that it is important that their employees also remain healthy and out of danger, which is why they’ve been hesitant to cut back on safety programs. And rightly so. Still, safety managers, like everyone else in most companies, have had to learn to do more with less.

It’s time to get smart about safety footwear programs. For safety managers looking to get the most efficiency out of their limited time and resources, there’s another option to consider in place of the traditional process. This traditional process often includes involving several different departments, from accounting to purchasing to safety. It involves coordinating the best date available for both managers and workers. Continue Reading…

Walk into a store and head to the work boot section, and the experience is all the same. A wall of black and brown that all look and sound the same. Magnum-this, Steel-that… it can be overwhelming. So can the price.

Government Asks OSHA to Make Changes to Safety Incentive Program

It’s important that each workplace have safety guidelines and policies. And one of those policies should be an incentive program that rewards workers for safe practices and behaviors on the job. There are a couple different types of these safety incentive programs which go about striving for the goal of worker safety in different ways. Many workplaces do have these incentive programs. But many of them might actually be causing more harm than good.

There’s a new report out from the Government Accounting Office (GAO), and it is asking OSHA to make changes as a result of recent research into these safety incentive programs. The GAO report raises serious concerns about the effect that workplace safety incentive programs have on the reporting of accidents and injuries in the workplace. Continue Reading…

OK, we’ve got good news and bad news. The bad news is, it might be hot now, but it won’t be long before it is freezing cold outside. And what’s worse, you will have to be out in it working. But here’s the good news: You don’t have to be freezing cold outside while you’re out in it working.

New Mine Rules Require Operators to Find and Fix Hazards

Mine Safety Regulation

On April 5, 2010, an explosion inside the Upper Big Branch Mine in Montcoal, West Virginia killed 29 miners. It was the worst mining disaster in the United States in 40 years. An investigation into the contributing causes of that explosion resulted in a fundamental shift in the way hazards are found and fixed. Namely, who is responsible for finding and fixing them.

There are now new mining rules that are meant to prevent something like that from ever happening again. The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) recently published new rules that will require mine operators to identify and correct hazardous conditions and violations of nine health and safety standards that pose the greatest risk to minors. These nine standards are in response to the exact type of conditions and violations that led to the deaths of the 29 miners, and meant to prevent similar tragedies from happening in the future.
