Today on the podcast, co-hosts Mark Reggers and Laurie Wells discuss silica with guest Shari Smith. Shari is a segment specialist in the 3M Personal Safety Division and also a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) and Certified Safety Professional (CSP).
Building on the concept of anticipating workplace hazards, co-hosts Mark Reggers and Laurie Wells welcome back 3M’s Lucre Pfefferman to discuss hazard recognition.
There are many different types of potential health hazards across different segments and industries. In this episode of the Global Science of Safety Podcast, co-hosts Mark Reggers and Laurie Wells discuss workplace hazard awareness with 3M’s Lucre Pfefferman.
Selection of appropriate safety equipment, including personal protective equipment (PPE), is critical to all rescue workers, law enforcement, and other professionals involved in the aftermath of an earthquake.
Proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE) in the aftermath of a wildfire is a critical component in the safe cleanup of fire debris.
You protected yourself from the storm, now how do you protect yourself from the aftermath, including mold, exposed materials such as asbestos and other factors such as noise from machinery that may be used to help with the clean-up efforts? Consider what personal protective equipment you may need during clean-up that can go a long way towards helping prevent injury.
With floods come hazards such as mold or airborne dusts containing harmful substances. Consider what personal protective equipment (PPE) you may need to help safely clean-up after the storm.
Review our white paper for guidance about developing a robust, resilient, and sustainable PPE stockpile program.
Review some of the hazards encountered during smelting and casting applications, as well as other activities associated with the primary metal manufacturing industries, and the PPE available.
This comprehensive guide explores PPE options as well as engineering controls (physical workplace changes) and administrative work
practice controls that should be evaluated first to protect workers from silica hazards.
