Workplace Safety

 

National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)
(www.nfpa.org)
This organization’s goal is to reduce the worldwide burden of fire and other hazards that affect quality of life by providing and advocating scientifically based consensus codes and standards, research, training, and education. Find necessary information on fire prevention, national electrical, life safety, and building construction codes; gain access to fire-data analysis; and read up on fire- and building-incident investigation.

 

[Executive Vice President, Healthcare Facility: “I visit NFPA to gain the latest industry news on fire safety and emergency preparedness programs.”]


National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)
(www.cdc.gov/niosh)
Provided by the Department of Health and Human Services’ Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, this agency helps to ensure safe and healthful working conditions by providing research, education, and training in the field of occupational safety and health. This site offers emergency preparedness guides, ergonomics info, and reports on storm and flood cleanup.

[Editor’s Note: “Read about this organization’s recent research achievements and check out state profiles listing the costs and burdens of occupational injury and illness.”]


U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety & Health Administration
(
www.osha.gov)
OSHA is vital in developing and enforcing workplace safety and preventing on-the-job injuries and illnesses, and this site is an integral part of that prevention. It offers a special section devoted to assisting small businesses. Read about their new five-year Strategic Management Plan goals, scan the latest OSHA news, and find information on every safety/health topic from mold to ergonomics to SARS.

[Manager, Government Facility: “OSHA’s site helps provide a safe and healthy work environment.”]


Weather.com
(www.weather.com)
We all know it, we all use it ... but don’t forget to apply it to your professional life as well. Weather.com can alert you to storms, send your local forecast straight to your inbox, and allow you to check radar on your cell phone.
