eric-at-ehs-today-2

Here at Intelex we rely on EHS Today as an important source of industry news, as do many of our customers. It was no surprise that their conference covered some of the most cutting-edge trends in the Environmental, Health and Safety space. Intelex Health and Safety Practice Lead Eric Morris was among those discussing where safety is heading through his workshop entitled, “The Future of Safety: Moving Your Organization Through the EHSQ Maturity Curve.” Here are three key takeaways from Eric’s presentation.

  • You need to move beyond compliance

Organizations that care about safety establish a competitive advantage over competitors because they see safety as more than just avoiding fines and reducing incidents. These organizations use safety software to encourage safe behavior and protect company goodwill.

Curtailing Construction’s Fatal Four: Countering Caught-In Injury Incidents

constructions-manager-plans

The “Fatal Four” of construction are falls, electrocutions, workers being caught in or between objects, and worker being struck by objects. In the United States, these hazards consistently account for over 50% of construction worker deaths annually. This translates into the deaths of over 899 workers on a yearly basis. In our four part blog post series, we will examine each hazard and highlight the steps companies are taking to not only ensure compliance with workplace legislation but create a proactive, performance-driven culture to transform their organization.

The Human Cost of Caught-In Injuries

Caught-in/between injuries kill 39 workers annually. This figure includes construction workers killed when crushed between equipment, debris, or other objects. The key difference between caught-in incidents and struck-by incidents is that struck-by deaths occur as a result of impact with an object, caught-in deaths are the result of crushing between two objects.

Simpsons blog-Blog (6)

In 27 seasons and one movie, The Simpsons have taught us a lot about the importance of safety. Jebediah Springfield showed us the importance of data collection; Leonard Nimoy and a monorail showed us the importance of Swiss cheese risk assessments; and Mr. Burns, the autocratic owner of the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant, showed us exactly how not to create a thriving safety culture.

“A noble data collection system embiggens the smallest company”

The City of Springfield was founded by beloved folk hero Jebediah Springfield. Lisa discovers Jebediah wasn’t a hero, but a notorious criminal. Proof in hand, Lisa interrupts bicentennial a town parade celebrating Jebediah to deliver the news but has a change of heart at the last minute when she sees how the myth of Jebediah brought the town together.

Lisa allowed everyone to believe what they had been taught since they were children because … Read more...
