    What Powers all of those Safety Wearables?

    What Powers all of those Safety Wearables?

    Join the Community of Safety Pros today!
    Small and wearable electronic devices used in workplaces rely on a power source that stores a high amount of energy in a small space (i.e., high energy density). Lithium cells provide sustained power and often have the capability to recharge. When designed, manufactured, and used properly, lithium batteries are a safe, high energy density power source for devices in the workplace.
    While lithium batteries are normally safe, they may cause injury if they have design defects, are made of low-quality materials, are assembled incorrectly, are used or recharged improperly, or are damaged.

    Explaining OSHA's New COVID-19 Guidelines

    Explaining OSHA's New COVID-19 Guidelines

    Join the Community of Safety Pros today!
    The OSHA guidance is intended to inform employers and workers in most workplace settings outside of healthcare to help them identify risks of being exposed to and/or contracting COVID-19 at work and to help them determine appropriate control measures to implement.
    Separate guidance is applicable to healthcare (CDC guidance) and emergency response (CDC guidance) settings. OSHA has additional industry-specific guidance. This guidance contains recommendations as well as descriptions of mandatory safety and health standards.
    The recommendations are advisory in nature, informational in content, and are intended to assist employers in providing a safe and healthful workplace.
    **Please see the OSHA website for these guidelines as information may have changed since the recording of this podcast episode.**

Safety leadership at its best.

I have always had a passion for safety. Since my early days in US Marine Corps aviation when I was appointed the safety supervisor for my squadrons avionics department in the ‘80s to my experience in corporate aviation maintenance so many years later.

Blaine’s podcast strives to remind me of the best practices of safety as well as describes new and emerging methods. Give him a listen.
