Cutting Through the Confusion of Machine Guarding
Machine guarding every potentially dangerous piece of equipment in a workplace can be a confusing and daunting challenge. As one of OSHA’s top 10 most cited violations, a proper machine guarding program is paramount in ensuring compliance and worker safety.
Corey Briggs, MSPH, CIH, CET, FAIHA of Colden Corporation was recently selected as one of the new AIHA Distinguished Lecturers (DL). The AIHA Distinguished Lecturer Program focuses on providing lectures on national and international occupational and environmental health issues that affect the practice of industrial hygiene.
Chemical Storage in Laboratories
Let’s take the time to assess the chemicals stored in our laboratories and minimize hazards by cleaning out and re-evaluating how we store our chemicals. It’s all too often we hear about a chemical reacting spontaneously and creating an unexpected release and putting workers at risk of exposure to hazardous substances.
Energy Set Backs in the Laboratory Setting
The minimization of laboratory air changes, where appropriate, serves to both minimize expense and foster environmental sustainability. Advances in variable air volume (VAV) technology in heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems have allowed Facilities Managers to reduce the amount of energy consumed to condition laboratory spaces.
