Why Make Safety Personal
 
According to one safety expert who experienced a chemical injury early in her own career, good safety practices mean more than compliance — they are directly linked to workmanship and quality products. That's why Sue Rollins of Genzink Steel in Holland, MI, wants workers to be mindful of safety both on and off the job. During training sessions, for example, attendees can borrow safety devices such as harnesses and ropes for personal projects like home repairs. Encouraging safety habits at home, says Rollins, is the first step to job quality.

Combustible Dust FAQs
 
Combustible dust collectors, while critical to the operation of many facilities, can also present a high risk for explosion. In fact, they have "four of the five conditions necessary for a combustion event." To keep dust concentrations below what is required for combustion, clean the filters regularly. Also, be sure to include combustible dust in any process hazard assessment. For guidelines on how to deal with combustible dust, see NFPA 484.

Gloves and Grinders Don't Mix
 
Grinders move fast, easily reaching 120 mph. Any glove that gets caught in one will be pulled into the equipment, along with the hand inside. If you want protection from sharp edges and burrs, use finger cots instead. As long as you cool the work continuously, the part won't be too hot to hold, and it won't suffer damage from overheating.

Which Safety Switch is Right for You?
 
If you need frequent, but not constant, access to a machine, an interlocking safety switch is likely the right choice. For machines that take a while to come a stop, guard-locking switches provide excellent protection; they wait a set time before releasing. Non-contact safety switches are small, lightweight, and work well in wet environments. Learn more about safety switches.
 
 
 
Arc Flash Relays, the Down and Dirty

Arc Flash Relays, the Down and Dirty
 
Arc flash relays detect impending arc flash events faster than a circuit breaker. The relay then sends a signal to trip the circuit breaker, often limiting damage to the already-problematic fault point. This industry white paper offers important tips when selecting an arc flash relay. Key considerations include reaction time, trip reliability, nuisance tripping, and ease-of-use.

Trending to Behavior-based Safety
 
Critics of behavior-based safety (BBS) point to a lack of quantifiable metrics, but there are changes on the horizon: wearable technology and the Internet of Things (IoT) promise a flood of supporting intelligence. However, metrics alone won't do the job; a strong safety program still requires a strong safety culture.

11 Steps to Alarm Management
 
To get a grip on your alarms, include this 11-step alarm management process when you upgrade or review your distributed control system (DCS). Believe it or not, minimizing the number of alarms, or information masquerading as an alarm, is one of the key strategies. The life-cycle model for alarm management helps you keep your alarm system in sync with changing plant processes and operations.
