  • Work Zone Awareness Week

    This is National Work Zone Awareness Week!

    Learn about what to do to promote road worker safety... National Work Zone Awareness Week - FLAGGER AHEAD: Means changes ahead! - Go Orange Day is Wednesday

    Tips for driving safely in work zones:

    • OSHA-SafetyObey warning signs – they are posted in advance of road construction projects to give you time to follow their instructions to merge, slow down or stop.
    • Stay alert and minimize distractions. Dedicate your full attention to the roadway and resist the temptation to get on your cell phone or engage in other distracting behaviors while driving through a work zone.
    • The most common crash in a highway work zone is the rear-end collision, so remember to leave at least two seconds of braking distance between you and the car in front of you. The amount of space required to provide two seconds of stopping time will increase the faster you're driving!
    • Stay calm. Work zones aren't there to personally inconvenience you. They're necessary to improve the roads for everyone.
    • In any work zone along any road, major or minor, expect the unexpected. Normal speed limits may be reduced, traffic lanes may be changed, and people and vehicles may be working on or near the road.
    • You may see flashing arrow panels or "lane closed ahead" signs. Merge as soon as possible. Don't zoom right up to the lane closure, then try to barge in - if everyone cooperates, traffic moves more efficiently. Motorists can help maintain traffic flow and posted speeds by moving to the appropriate lane at first notice of an approaching work zone.
    • Slow down when the signs say to. Speeding is one of the leading causes of work zone related crashes so slow down and take your time.

    "Winter, slumbering in the open air, wears on its smiling face a dream... of spring." While Groundhog Day is a lighthearted movie about a fun winter rite, the reality is that - just as in days gone by - Winter is still Deadly and Dangerous Today.

    Groundhog Day is February 2 and has been celebrated since 1887. On Groundhog Day, crowds gather in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, to see if groundhog Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow after emerging from his burrow, thus predicting six more weeks of winter weather. Originally, in many locations where this was observed with less famous groundhogs than Phil, the way it worked was that if the day was cloudy when a groundhog emerged from its burrow on this day, then it would indicate an early Spring; if it was sunny, the groundhog would supposedly see its shadow and retreat back into its burrow, and the winter weather would then persist for six more weeks. Some say that the tradition has its origins in ancient European weather lore, wherein a badger or sacred bear was the prognosticator, as opposed to a groundhog. The custom also has strong similarities to the Pagan festival of Imbolc (the seasonal turning point of the Celtic calendar, which is celebrated on February 2 and also involves weather prognostication).

    Get ready for a long Winter with all the great Winter Safety Needs above and learn more by reading our Winter Safety Articles.

    If you don't "get" the quotes above… you really need to watch the movie Groundhog Day with Bill Murray – always good for a chuckle.

  • Is an N95 mask better than a face mask?

    N95Not necessarily.

    An N95 mask offers more comprehensive protection that a dust mask or other facemasks – whether the situation requires it or not.

    An N95 mask filters out at least 95% of all airborne particulates that are .03 microns or larger. (This is were the "95" comes from!) Meaning, it protects against harmful dust, fog, smoke, mist, gases, vapors, sprays, and pathogens such as flu viruses.

    A face mask (also called a surgical or procedural mask) protects the wearer from airborne bacteria and larger particulate matter such as dust and smoke. It also protects others from "catching" the wearer's oral and nasal bacteria. However face masks do not protect the wearer from airborne pathogens or harmful mist, gases, vapors or sprays.

  • Record heat

    Heat - it's not just uncomfortable, it is dangerous.. for children and elderly especially, but for workers, too.

    Download OSHA’s heat app to stay safe on the job.

    Heat Safety Tool

    By U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)

    When you're working in the heat, safety comes first. With the OSHA Heat Safety Tool, you have vital safety information available whenever and wherever you need it - right on your mobile phone.

    heat_appThe App allows workers and supervisors to calculate the heat index for their worksite, and, based on the heat index, displays a risk level to outdoor workers. Then, with a simple "click," you can get reminders about the protective measures that should be taken at that risk level to protect workers from heat-related illness-reminders about drinking enough fluids, scheduling rest breaks, planning for and knowing what to do in an emergency, adjusting work operations, gradually building up the workload for new workers, training on heat illness signs and symptoms, and monitoring each other for signs and symptoms of heat-related illness.

    Working in full sunlight can increase heat index values by 15 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep this in mind and plan additional precautions for working in these conditions.

    The OSHA Heat Tool is available in Spanish for Android and iPhone devices. To access the Spanish version on the iPhone, set the phone language setting to Spanish before downloading the app.

    Stay informed and safe in the heat, check your risk level.

    For more information about safety while working in the heat, see OSHA's heat illness webpage, including new online guidance about using the heat index to protect workers.

  • Watch your step!

    We often talk about the dangers of slips, trips and falls at home and at work. There's a lighter side to slips, though, too - often sharing something funny is a way to draw attention to the more serious.

    Tripping in public can be incredibly embarrassing, but if you're Paige Ginn, you find ways to make embarrassing moments funny. Ginn records videos of herself falling in public to see the reactions of strangers: Do they help? Do they laugh? Or do they pretend to see nothing at all?
    It's been a hilarious human experiment that also makes you question what you would do in those situations. Let's hope you don't react like some of these people:
