StandUp4Grain Safety Week

ghsc_logo2
Growing up, my parents were never "helicopter parents." We had an unwritten rule in our house that after school, we had to commit an hour to something academic – reading a book, playing math games, doing homework, or anything of the like. Then, we were promptly kicked out of the house to play outdoors until the street lights came on. We only had one hard and fast rule – no playing on dirt/sand piles. It wasn't until I was a bit older that I learned that when my mom was in middle school, a good friend of hers was buried alive while working on a pile of grain in a grain bin. His death haunted my mom for years. Grain processing, handling, and storage are not new safety hazards. For decades, gra...

Whew! Congratulations everybody, January was a tough year, but we made it. Haha, obviously we know that January isn't a year but, goodness, it sure felt like it.

Helpful Tips for Winter Weather

winter
Even though Groundhog Day is still nearly two weeks away, I wouldn't be surprised if the little guy sees his shadow and retreats back to his home to hunker down for an extended winter. This winter has been consistently inconsistent. Here in Central Texas, we had days near freezing followed by days where you could wear shorts comfortably. Up north, the country has been pounded by snow storm after snow storm. In fact, as of publishing, half of the country is snowed in due to a recent barrage of storms that our neighbors to the north (ahem, Canada) thrust upon northerners from Maine to Washington. With all of the winter weather that is still to come, we at CareerSafe want to pass along a few ti...

Happy 47th Birthday, OSHA OTI!

OTI-B_20191218-231600_1
In 1971, The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) was established under President Nixon. There was an obvious need to ensure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women, thus OSHA was made. One year later, OSHA adopted existing national consensuses and established Federal standards to provide a baseline for safety and health protection in American workplaces. OSHA's mission to provide safe and healthful workplaces was carried out through the enforcement of standards, provision of training, outreach, education, and assistance. With that in mind, 8 months later, on this day, the OSHA Training Institute was established. The OSHA Training Institute was created...
