Savings and Safety Tips for December 2014 from All Safety Products, Inc.
Workers typically install roof sheathing after all trusses/rafters and any permanent truss bracing is in place. Roof structures are unstable until some sheathing is installed, so workers installing roof sheathing cannot be protected from fall hazards by conventional fall protection systems until it is determined that the roofing system can be used as an anchorage point. At that point, employees shall be protected by a personal fall arrest system.

Ebola hemorrhagic fever (EHF) (sometimes called Ebola Virus Disease, or EVD) is the disease caused by infection with an Ebola virus.

Many people who get EHF die from it. Workers performing tasks involving close contact with symptomatic individuals with EHF or in environments contaminated or reasonably anticipated to be contaminated with infectious body fluids are at risk of exposure. These workers may include workers in the healthcare, mortuary and death care, airline, and other travel service industries.

You first need to identify reactive chemicals and inventory where and which chemicals you are storing and the proximity of chemicals near each other.  OSHA covers this in greater detail on their website,  "Chemicals have the ability to react when exposed to other chemicals or certain physical conditions. The reactive properties of chemicals vary widely and they play a vital role in the production of many chemical, material, pharmaceutical, and food products we use daily. When chemical reactions are not properly managed, they can have harmful, or even catastrophic consequences, such as toxic fumes, fires, and explosions. These reactions may result in death and injury to people, damage to physical property, and severe effects on the environment. Process Safety Management is used to prevent and mitigate chemical reactivity hazards.

When it comes to safety eyewear, the right fit is essential for comfort, performance and most importantly, protection. If your safety glasses do not fit securely or there are large gaps in coverage, you risk a serious eye injury from flying debris or particles. To ensure that your eyewear fits properly, some styles offer adjustment features or are available in multiple sizes to accommodate a variety of facial shapes, giving you a customized fit.  Workers will be more likely to wear their safety eyewear if it fits them comfortably, increasing compliance and decreasing eye injuries.

If you think you're immune from accidents just because you work in an office, think again. Hazards lurk everywhere from file cabinets to copiers. In fact, OSHA estimates that there are 40,000 disabling office injuries each year, including 200 that are fatal.     Falls are the number one cause of office accidents. The disabling injury rate for falls among office workers is at least twice the rate for nonoffice employees. Keep drawers closed, clean up coffee spills, and don't lean too far backward in office chairs. Accidents involving electricity are also frequent. With so much office machinery running on electricity, accidents can occur as a result of faulty or defective equipment, unsafe installation, and poor safety practices. Inspect electrical equipment and cords regularly. If equipment sparks, smokes, or smells, shut it off and report the problem right away.     A neat, organized office will also go a long way in preventing accidents. Be sure to follow safe housekeeping practices around the office. Finally, tragedies like 9/11 have shown us how important it is to plan for fires and emergencies in offices. Know your company's emergency plan. Avoid fires by making sure all heat-producing equipment like coffee makers, copiers, and computers are shut off at the end of the workday.

That doesn't seem so difficult and yet simple lock-out/tag-out procedures are often misused and misunderstood. Lockout/Tagout is the fifth most violated standard of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). One United Auto Workers study showed that 20 percent of fatalities in the workplace from 1973 to 1995 were caused by failures to follow the procedure. Lockout/Tagout keeps people safe from electrical accidents and injuries. It is required for machines and equipment to allow contractors making repairs to proceed.

In today's economic climate, customers want to know the best gloves to purchase at the cheapest price.  I'll let you in on a little secret.  Most times, people over purchase gloves.  For example, they may purchase an Exam Grade / Medical Grade glove when they may really only need industrial grade quality.  Did you know that in quite a few instances, the industrial grade glove has all the quality that an exam grade glove has, but without the FDA assurance?  It is less expensive to purchase, yet still retains high quality.  The key to purchasing industrial grade gloves with the same, high quality you've come to expect in your exam grade gloves is to know the sourcing of the industrial grade gloves.  The main difference in these gloves is that in the manufacturing process, they've only taken off the labeling on the package and label the gloves "industrial" rather than "exam grade".  Yep, that's it.  These gloves do not come under FDA scrutiny and therefore the manufacturer will offer these at a cheaper rate.   The important thing to watch; however, is whether the manufacturer starts releasing a disportionate amount of industrial grade gloves in relation to exam grade gloves.  Quality starts diminishing when this happens.  At All Safety Products, the suppliers are carefully chosen to ensure they are producing high quality gloves, not second hand quality. All Safety Products offers a wide selection of nitrile gloves (industrial and exam grade) to meet a variety of safety needs. Nitrile gloves are particularly beneficial to those who have experienced adverse reactions to latex or natural rubber.
