Common human factors underlying worker fatalities in the waste and recycling industry
Research was carried out to identify common human factors underlying fatal incidents and to provide insights into possible options for concerted action to help reduce the likelihood of serious incidents or fatalities. The research reviewed 18 fatal incidents and included in-depth interviews with HSE inspectors involved in the incident investigations. Of these incidents, 12 were in ‘small and medium enterprises', SMEs (with less than 250 employees) and 6 in large enterprises (250 or more). The research identified two priority human factors areas to tackle to reduce worker fatalities: equipment...
Implantation du cadenassage des équipements mobiles dans le secteur municipal
Étude exploratoire Lors d'une étude précédente, il a été constaté que les équipements mobiles (c.-à-d. machines ou équipements autopropulsés, remorqués ou transportés) sont rarement pris en compte dans les programmes de cadenassage, bien qu'ils soient des sources potentielles d'accidents graves lors de phases hors production. Les obligations réglementaires vis-à-vis du contrôle des énergies dangereuses concernent les équipements mobiles au même titre que...
Aviation-Related Wildland Firefighter Fatalities
United States, 2000–2013 Airplanes and helicopters are integral to the management and suppression of wildfires, often operating in high-risk, low-altitude environments. To update data on aviation-related wildland firefighting fatalities, identify risk factors, and make recommendations for improved safety, CDC's National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) analyzed reports from multiple data sources for the period 2000–2013. Among 298 wildland firefighter fatalities identified during 2000–2013, 78 (26.2%) were aviation-related occupational fatalities that occurred...
Risk of electrocution during fire suppression activities involving photovoltaic systems
Firefighting activities regarding buildings normally require electric power to be disconnected before a water jet is used, in order to minimize the risk of electrocution. As for as concerns Photovoltaic Systems, during a fire event it is not possible to turn off the whole power system in order to guarantee that all the components are de-energized. The object of this paper is to estimate the safe distances to respect during firefighting involving PV Systems. To this end a series of experimental tests have been performed, in order to measure the current flowing through the water stream, under different...
