May’s Meeting

From Bob Kunz:

Team SAFER,

OSHA 29 CFR 1910.38 (General Industry) and 29 CFR 1926.35 (Construction) outline requirements for emergency action plans. The Providence Fire Department provides for the protection of human life and property from fire and other disasters, either natural or man-made, through fire safety education, the development, and enforcement of fire codes, provision of emergency medical services and suppression of fire, for example.

The staff and partners at your facility and or construction project may have knowledge and equipment that may be critical to protect the lives of the responders, required for the successful rescue of workers and mitigation of property loss including adjacencies. So how do you fit in…..

Please join us for an informative discussion concerning National Incident Management System (NIMS) including without limitation unified command.

Mike Dillon (retired Chief PFD) is the guest speaker.

See you on Wednesday morning.

Regards,

Hard Hat Recall – Voluntary

https://www.honeywellsafety.com/USA/Learn-More/Voluntary_Product_Recall_A79_and_FibreMetal.aspx?site=/usa&LangType=1033

VOLUNTARY PRODUCT RECALL OF CERTAIN IDENTIFIED LOTS OF FIBRE METAL E2 AND NORTH PEAK A79 HARD HATS

Reason for Recall: The safety of our products is our top concern at Honeywell. We have recently learned of a quality issue affecting certain lot numbers of our Fibre Metal E2 Cap and North Peak A79 hard hats that may render them unable to provide the impact protection for which they were designed and certified.

Risk to Health: Although we are not aware of any safety incidents involving the affected hard hats, in cooperation with Health Canada and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, we are initiating a voluntary product recall of the items involved. The hard hats included in the recall may not provide the level of protection for which they were designed and certified in the case of impact.

Requested Action: Identify the affected lots and remove these items from usage by following the instructions on the links below.
