Safety is more than just following rules and paying attention. It’s influenced by a host of factors, including culture, systems, leadership styles and economics – just to name a few. But perhaps one of the most significant differentiators of successful organizations in safety is the way safety is strategically managed.
As Shawn Galloway discusses in this free podcast, safety is not a standalone strategy within a business. It must be an integral part of the overall operational plan.
OSHA just recently issued its new and revised rules for workers in the electrical power industry. The Final Rule made important changes to the construction standards (29 CFR 1926) and the general industry standards (29 CFR 1910). Covering everything from contractors to de-energizing transmission and distribution lines, the changes in this final rule can have a major impact on your operations. In this important podcast, you’ll have the opportunity to go through the final rule from two experts from OSHA.

While we should never underestimate the importance of effective hazard control programs, there is simply no glory in controlling a hazard that could have been eliminated. This former Fire Chief and current Safety Professional will guide a discussion on the latest tool in the arsenal of the Safety Professional – the new ANSI/ASSE Z590.3 – 2011 PtD process and relate how it can be used with proper application of other accepted codes and regulations.
Fixed fire protection systems such as fire sprinklers and gaseous suppression systems are the backbone of fire protection in industrial and commercial facilities. Fire sprinklers have a stellar record of satisfactory performance. Fire sprinklers are effective in approximately 97% of fires in which they operate. Why are fires not as effective as intended in approximately 3% of fires? When initially installed, fire sprinklers are usually properly designed and installed. What are factors which can compromise the system and cause them to perform less than satisfactorily? How should impairments to the fire system be controlled? This podcast will look at contributing factors to fire protection system failures. Effective impairment and inspection procedures will be discussed to help prevent fire protection system failures.
This podcast will discuss the recent advances in protective performance testing of flame resistant clothing, focusing on new groundbreaking research on the duration and energy of actual hydrocarbon flash fires outdoors. This research was able to quantify how long these events last and how much energy they release.

This podcast will help organizations looking for something truly different in the world of workplace safety and health! It will include data-driven results that provide an excellent view of how a cultural approach to safety and a behavioral approach to safety work on different levels but can also be seamlessly combined to produce maximum improvement to performance.
OSHA concluded that effective management of worker safety and health protection is a decisive factor in reducing the extent and the severity of work-related injuries. Electrical safety inspections must be conducted in order to verify full compliance with OSHA and NFPA electrical safety regulations and standards. This podcast will provide guidelines for developing an electrical safety inspection program.
Soft-tissue and other “wear down” injuries can seriously affect a workforce – especially one that is aging. And, for many companies, traditional approaches have shown limited results, with many stuck on a performance plateau. In this podcast, Robert Pater will talk to you about providing proven, efficient approaches for accomplishing several objectives: building a critical mass of workers directing attention, adjusting to small changes that build toward enhancing safety & overall performance.
