Safety and Environmental Hot Topics

Responsible for the Next Safety Meeting or Hot Topic?

For many of us, the daily, weekly or monthly safety meeting is a fact of life.  Usually, the responsibility for leading the meeting rotates or someone is responsible to bring in a hot topic.  But as most of us know - the meetings are generally filled with repeats of the "typical" topics. You know them all - slips, trips, and falls; electrical safety (particularly near the holidays), food safety (near Thanksgiving or Fourth of July or when the office refrigerator needs cleaning), and the list goes on.  

But there are lots of great resources available with just a bit of planning.  Today, hot topics include chemical safety (changes to the Safety Data Sheets, potential changes to TSCA, understanding the different State's requirements), shipping of hazardous materials, recent findings from the CSB related to various accidents, and understanding the proper use of PPE.  The morning news paper is always a great place to look for safety topics.  This week alone had a number of significant incidents and potential incidents that could have been used as starters for discussion.

EPA, CSB, and the NSC all have available lots of short videos that can be used in your next safety meeting.  Yes, I did say EPA.  EPA has lots of videos (over 130) - the ones of interest for safety meetings have been produced by the EPA's Environmental Response Team.  They can be found here.  Topics available include decontamination procedures, teamwork,  news items, and remediation techniques.

So take a couple of extra minutes and wow them at your next meeting.
