Human factors that lead to non-compliance with standard operating procedures
The Advisory Committee on Dangerous Pathogens categorises biological agents into Hazard Groups 1 (negligible hazard) to 4 (highly pathogenic) according to their potential to cause human infection, the likelihood that infection could spread in the community, and the availability of effective treatment. For laboratories where biological agents are handled, controls proportionate to these hazards are specified and laboratories are designated Containment Levels 1 to 4. These controls are a combination of structural requirements and working procedures. To protect the health of workers, especially with...
Pour un meilleur usage de la messagerie électronique dans les entreprises

Motivation, attitudes, perceptions and skills: pathways to safe work

Developing understanding of target audiences
Amongst the planned activities of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) for 2009/10, a significant element is aimed at reaching and influencing two different audiences with regards to LEV (Local Exhaust Ventilation). These audiences are: supply-side stakeholders; and SME businesses that use LEV to control their employees' exposure to hazardous substances. To inform these activities, a qualitative research study was carried out with users and suppliers of LEV equipment in April, May and June 2009. Source : http://www.hse.gov.uk/research/rrhtm/rr787.htm
Young people with dyslexia may be at higher risk of work injuries
Young people with dyslexia may be at greater risk of getting hurt on the job, according to a new study from the Institute for Work & Health (IWH). “The early indicators are that dyslexia contributes to higher injury rates among young workers,” says IWH Scientist Dr. Curtis Breslin, who led the study. “It could be that the particular problems with reading, spelling and writing that characterize dyslexia make it more difficult to understand and remember safety training or contribute to poor supervisor-worker communications.” http://www.iwh.on.ca/media/2009-aug-17
Unstable Workplace Might Increase Employee Risk for Heart Attack
When employees feel ambiguous about their role in the organization and there is a lack of clear-cut communication, they might be at higher risk for heart attacks over time, a new study suggests.
