White Papers
January was a tough month for employers in the adult film industry in California, with two companies receiving citations for not protecting employees from bloodborne pathogens. Although the specific circumstances of the adult film industry are unique, the basic principles of bloodborne pathogens protection remain largely the same for all employers with such pathogens in the workplace.
Workplace stress remains high. According to one recent survey, 62 percent of employees report high levels of stress, leading to extreme fatigue and feeling out of control. What are the causes of employee stress, and what are the solutions you can bring to the table? Read the article for answers and best practices.
An oxidizer isn't a source of ignition; it won’t start a fire. And it’s not fuel--an oxidizer does not, itself, burn. So what effect does extra oxygen have on a fire? Read the article to find out.
Two tools are essential for almost any job you can think of—your hands. It's natural, then, that preventing hand injuries should be high on any list of safety priorities. Here's a handy checklist to help you identify and control hazards in your workplace that can cause injuries to workers' hands.
Whenever workers enter a confined space, they must be able to get out again in a hurry or, worse, they may need rescuing. To ensure that workers will not be trapped in a tight spot, planning and training are essential.
The EPA's recent proposal to amend its worker protection standard (WPS) presents a good opportunity to review the differing authorities of the two agencies with regard to protecting pesticide handlers and agricultural workers from exposure to pesticides.
Forklifts are designed to lift and move heavy loads. The forklifts themselves must be heavy to prevent them from falling forward when the load is lifted. Forklifts also tend to be small and narrow to navigate tight workspaces. Being small, narrow, and heavier than they look can be a recipe for tipping if workers are not careful. Read the article to learn when forklifts are most prone to tipovers and how to protect workers.

Workers who drive as part of their employment--even if all they do is drive to and from off-site meetings during the workday--can expose you to significant liability if they're involved in an accident. To avoid liability, you need to identify drivers who could put you at risk and keep them off the road for work purposes.
Back injuries are among the most common types of injuries: nearly four out of five adults will experience a back injury at some point in their lives. Back injuries are also expensive, costing as much as $100,000 for a single injury, and time-consuming, keeping workers off the job for longer than the average work-related injury.
What do you do when a truck isn't the right vehicle, but a tractor won't do the job either? The answer is often the four-wheeler, also called an all-terrain vehicle or ATV. Farmers in Japan first began using these versatile vehicles in the 1960s. Today, in the United States, more than 11 million ATVs are driven for both work and recreation.
In September 2012, Governor Brown signed legislation intended to address steadily increasing workers' compensation costs in the state. Many of Senate Bill (S.B.) 863's major provisions went into effect on January 1, and the rest will be implemented in stages through January 1, 2014.
Scaffolds enable workers to perform work at elevation more safely than ladders or some other types of equipment, but like many useful pieces of equipment, they can also pose a hazard to workers. Scaffolds may collapse while being erected or dismantled, or if they are incorrectly assembled or overloaded. Workers who don't know the risks can fall.
Work at elevation always exposes workers to the hazard of a deadly fall. The use of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs), also known as aerial work platforms (AWPs), such as boom lifts and scissor lifts, can provide a measure of safety.
Whenever workers are welding, cutting, or brazing, they are at risk. Fire is the most obvious hazard, but compressed gas cylinders, electricity, and hazardous welding fumes also pose hazards. Check your welding, cutting, and brazing operations for safety with this checklist, adapted from federal OSHA.

Work at elevation always exposes workers to the hazard of a deadly fall. The use of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs, also known as aerial work platforms or AWPs), such as boom lifts and scissor lifts, can provide a measure of safety. Unfortunately, the enhanced safety provided by guardrails as well as the ability to have both hands free to work and a place to put tools and equipment are to some degree offset by the hazards of the elevating equipment itself.
Many people suffer from allergies. An unfortunate minority have allergies so severe that their reaction is a life-threatening condition called "anaphylaxis."
When Governor Brown signed a sweeping overhaul of California's workers' compensation system in September 2012, one of his goals was to control employers' workers' compensation costs, which had climbed precipitously in recent years.
