Upcoming WEST Webinars
October is National Protect Your Hearing Month, an annual event sponsored by the CDC to raise awareness about hearing protection. Did you know that hearing loss is the third most common chronic health condition in the United States? The CDC estimates that 22 million workers are exposed to potentially damaging noise at work each year. Hazardous noise levels in the workplace are a serious concern that not only can result in hearing loss if not protected against, but can also contribute to other causes of physical stress as well as mental stress and lower work productivity.
How do you determine if your workplace may require a hearing conservation program? According to NIOSH, if you have to raise your voice to speak to someone an arm’s length away in any area of your facility, the noise levels may be loud enough to cause hearing loss.
OSHA specifically requires employers to implement a hearing conservation program whenever employee […]
This year’s NFPA Fire Prevention Week campaign is “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!” The goal is to educate people about the small but important steps they can take to keep themselves, their family, and those around them safe. The campaign highlights the importance of making a fire escape plan for your home.
EHS professionals and others with safety responsibilities spend a good deal of time focusing on emergency evacuation plans for the workplace. However, the importance of evacuation or escape planning in the event of a home fire is often overlooked. According to an NFPA survey, only one out of every three households have developed and practiced a home escape plan.
Did you know that in a typical home fire, you may have as little as one to two minutes to escape safely from the time the smoke alarm sounds? Escape planning and practice can help you make the most […]
The third annual OSHA Safe + Sound Week is being held August 12-18, 2019. This national event is intended to promote the value of workplace health and safety programs. Employers are encouraged to hold events and activities that highlight the elements of their health and safety program during this week. It has been a huge success at Safety Partners’ clients who have participated in previous years!
Participating in the program is a great way to recognize your safety successes and show your commitment to safety! It’s also a perfect opportunity to raise awareness of your safety program in a fun and engaging way. Participating in Safe + Sound Week can help get your program started, energize an existing one, and provide a chance to recognize your safety successes.
Remember- safe workplaces are sound businesses. Successful safety and health programs can proactively identify and manage workplace hazards before they cause injury or illness, improving sustainability and […]
OSHA has announced that Safe + Sound 2019 will be held August 12-18, 2019. This national event is intended to promote the value of workplace health and safety programs.
OSHA is encouraging employers to share the safety successes they have enjoyed over the past year during this week. Employers are encouraged to hold events and activities that highlight the elements of their health and safety program during this week. Developing fun interactive activities can engage employees and remind them of the established policies in a creative way. Even though it is a long way away, take advantage of the long lead time to develop daily activities to highlight the importance of your EHS program! You have plenty of time to prepare and think about the daily themes to cover during this week.
Join us for a one day session to learn how to:
- Recognize potential chemical reactivity hazards
- Put in place controls to prevent chemical reactivity incidents
- Screen processes for potential chemical reactivity hazards that could cause harm to people, property or the environment
- Implement a management system to help predict & prevent incidents
- Recognize when a job safety analysis is needed
Lessons learned from recent reactive chemistry incidents will be explored. Participants will discuss control methods and share experiences in evaluating and controlling chemical reactivity hazards.
Training Approved for 7 TCH credits through MA DEP
