Local members of the New Jersey Chapter of the American Society of Safety Professionals (NJASSP), a state affiliate of the oldest and largest safety society, are concerned that the number one cause of on-the-job and off-the-job deaths continues to be transportation incidents – all modes. Therefore, in celebration of North American Occupational Safety and Health Week (NAOSH) which runs from May 5-11, 2019, the NJASSP along with thousands of other organizations, will be working to raise awareness of the importance of preventing on-the-job and off-the-job accidents, by distributing transportation best practices information and urging all to heed to traffic rules and regulations.

On February 7 a group of 17 WISE women and men, and friends, met in East Brunswick at Pinot’s Palette for some networking, fun and creativity. Everyone was given the opportunity to create a masterpiece while meeting some new people and enjoying a very relaxed atmosphere.We were each able to express our creative side and let things happen. The results were amazing! We awarded Christine Young the “Most Accurate” and Candice Kowalewski the “Most Original” awards. I think Leonie Wedderburn captured the overall feeling after the meeting when she said “I found a creative side I did not realize I had.”Our goal was to bring people together to take a few moments out of our busy schedules and enjoy the company of other safety -minded individuals. I would say mission accomplished. Click HERE for photos of the event.

ASSP’s Industrial Hygiene Practice Specialty has developed a resource guide for contractors that pulls together frequently asked questions about complying with OSHA’s silica standard. The guide addresses issues such as air sampling, the use and sources of objective data, medical surveillance, respirator use and exposure control plans. It also contains links to a wide range of resources that provide detailed information, including OSHA documents, voluntary national consensus standards and tools created by key stakeholder organizations.
“The construction silica regulation is a complex, performance-oriented regulation that gives contractors flexibility for compliance. However, this flexibility also requires contractors to ensure that selected compliance methods protect workers to the maximum extent feasible,” the guide explains. “Contractors should use all available resources, including insurance loss control, private consultants, OSHA consultation, university programs and tool manufacturers, in developing their programs and addressing concerns.”
