The Inspector and the Safety: Results of an OHSA Report

It is federal law that your business place is inspected by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration on a regular basis in order to ensure that safety standards are being recognized. Recently, the OSHA has been curious to see how much of the safety recognized by an inspector is based on the way that that employee conducts the survey. Studies have shown that OSHA inspections can reduce the amount of injuries in a manufacturing establishment by about 20 percent in some circumstances. Yet this was very dependent on how thorough and strict the inspector who conducts the survey is.

High Schools Taking Brain Injuries Seriously

In the past, hitting your head in a high school football game was referred to as "getting your bell rung." Football head injuries were a part of the game and those with a concussion or another brain injury were simply told to get back in and play. Yet many of those "once tough" football stars now have constant headaches, cognitive degradation, and other medical issues because of the head injuries that were taken lightly and never treated. After an off-season which included two suicides by former NFL players and growing research which has pointed to the serious penalties that can accompany a brain injury, nearly every state has started their high school football season with legislation to protect young athletes from potentially damaging head injuries.

High Chair Safety

For anyone with a baby, a high chair is a necessity when it comes to dinnertime. Unknown to many families, however, is the fact that high chairs can pose substantial safety risks to children. In particular, high chairs that fail to meet ASTM International safety standards can result in serious or deadly injury to tots that like to squirm.
