Protecting emergency responders : lessons learned from terrorist attacks by Brian A Jackson( )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 2,090 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents a summary of a December 2001 working conference, sponsored by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. Attending were emergency workers who responded to the bombing of the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City, the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the anthrax incidents that occurred during autumn 2001. The report addresses the equipment, training and information required to protect emergency responders as they meet the challenge of protecting their communities
Protecting emergency responders by Tom LaTourrette( )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Firefighters, law enforcement officers, and emergency medical service responders play a critical role in protecting people and property in the event of fires, natural and man-made disasters, medical emergencies, terrorist and other criminal acts, and numerous other types of emergencies. The authors examine the hazards that emergency responders face and the personal protective technology needed to contend with those hazards. The findings are based on in-depth discussions with 190 members of the emergency responder community nationwide, including structural firefighters, emergency medical service responders, police officers, emergency management officials, technology and services suppliers, researchers, and program managers from 83 organizations. The discussions focused on the primary tasks that emergency responders undertake; situations in which the risk of injury is greatest and, therefore, have the highest priority for improved personal protection; current and emerging technologies that are critical to protecting the health and safety of emergency responders; and the drivers of, impediments to, and gaps in personal protection technology development. The findings are intended to help define the protective technology needs of emergency responders and develop a comprehensive personal protective technology research agenda for the nation
Incorporating occupational information in electronic health records : letter report by Institute of Medicine (U.S.)( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1,462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Each year in the United States, more than 4,000 occupational fatalities and more than 3 million occupational injuries occur along with more than 160,000 cases of occupational illnesses. Incorporating patients' occupational information into electronic health records (EHRs) could lead to more informed clinical diagnosis and treatment plans as well as more effective policies, interventions, and prevention strategies to improve the overall health of the working population. At the request of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, the IOM appointed a committee to examine the rationale and feasibility of incorporating occupational information in patients' EHRs. The IOM concluded that three data elements - occupation, industry, and work-relatedness - were ready for immediate focus, and made recommendations on moving forward efforts to incorporate these elements into EHRs"--Publisher's description

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph serves as a technical source for National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) incident commander guidelines for emergency response immediately following large structural collapse events. It characterizes response activities and expected hazards, and develops guidelines for selecting appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). The partial or complete collapse of a multistory building creates an array of physical, chemical, and biological hazards. The most significant uncertainties are the composition and magnitude of the hazards present in the postcollapse environment. Although hazard monitoring can reduce these uncertainties, this type of monitoring will not be available during the first few postcollapse hours. The guidelines focus on three issues that present unique challenges in the response to a multistory-building collapse: (1) protection from biological hazards; (2) protection from inhalation of hazardous materials; and (3) required modifications to responders' typical PPE ensembles because of the duration and intensity of the response. However, selecting and purchasing appropriate PPE does not alone ensure safety; the guidelines also address the need to provide adequate supply of equipment and training so that it is used correctly

Electrical safety : safety and health for electrical trades : student manual by Thaddeus W Fowler( Book )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) estimates that 230,000 young workers under the age of 18 suffer work-related injuries in the United States each year. Young and new workers have a high risk for work-related injury compared with more experienced workers. Occupational safety and health training remains a fundamental element of hazard control in the workplace, and there is great potential to reduce these incidents through pre-employment training. Effective pre-employment training should include realistic environments and hands-on exercises. However, NIOSH recommends that actual employment in the electrical trades or any of the other construction trades be delayed until individuals reach the minimum age of 18. This student manual is part of a safety and health curriculum for secondary and post-secondary electrical trades courses. The manual is designed to engage the learner in recognizing, evaluating, and controlling hazards associated with electrical work. It was developed through extensive research with vocational instructors, and we are grateful for their valuable contributions."--Page iii
Work and well-being : an agenda for the 1990s( Book )

15 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and held by 507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is an adapted proceedings of a conference cosponsored by the American Psychological Association and the National Institute for Occupational Health and Safety (NIOSH), held on November 15-17, 1990, in Washington, DC. It presents selected introductory remarks, a reprint of the NIOSH "Proposed National Strategies for the Prevention of Leading Work-Related Diseases and Injuries: Psychological Disorders," and papers delivered at three centerpiece panel sessions: (a) Health Promotion, Education, and Treatment; (b) Surveillance of Psychological Disorders; and (c) Work Design and Stress. The panel papers are followed by comments by panel participants. The final section contains an invited address delivered by preeminent scholar and researcher Lennart Levi, Chair of the Department of Stress Research of the Karolinska Intitutet in Stockholm, Sweden, and a reprint of a monologue from "The Department" by playwright Barbara Garson, which was delivered as part of the central luncheon address. The volume focuses on many issues involved in the prevention, measurement, and treatment of psychological disoorders that potentially arise within the work environment and situation and reviews some of the most current research.

Occupational exposure to diacetyl and 2,3-pentanedione by Lauralynn Taylor McKernan( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Diacetyl and its substitute, 2,3-pentanedione, are widely used as flavoring compounds. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) objective in establishing recommended exposure limits (RELs) for diacetyl and 2,3-pentanedione is to reduce the risk of respiratory impairment (decreased lung function) and the severe irreversible lung disease obliterative bronchiolitis associated with occupational exposure. In this Criteria Document, NIOSH reviews the scientific literature concerning potential health effects, toxicology, and risk assessment pertaining to diacetyl and 2,3-pentanedione. Recommendations are provided on engineering controls, work practices, and personal protective equipment to prevent and control workplace exposures to diacetyl and 2,3-pentanedione"--NIOSH website
