Saying thank you and being grateful are not just about words. Taking the initiative to show gratitude and acknowledge others, even when it s not expected, may be beneficial to health and wellness (and in turn safety). Recent research suggests that, individuals who are grateful in their daily lives actually report fewer stress-related health symptoms, including headaches, gastrointestinal (stomach) issues, chest pain, muscle aches, and appetite problems, says Sheela Raja, PhD, an assistant professor and clinical psychologist in the Colleges of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Illinois at Chicago. When we say thank you, we are not only benefitting ourselves, but we also show someone that they are truly valued and appreciated. Who couldn t use more of that? year by saying thank you.

Remember to post your 300 Log by February 1st! OSHA revised recordkeeping rule includes two key changes: First, the rule updates the list of industries that are exempt from the requirement to routinely keep OSHA injury and illness records, due to relatively low occupational injury and illness rates. The previous list of industries was based on the old Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) system and injury and illness data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) from 1996, 1997, and The new list of industries that are exempt from routinely keeping OSHA injury and illness records is based on the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) and injury and illness data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) from 2007, 2008, and Note: The new rule retains the exemption for any employer with ten or fewer employees, regardless of their industry classification, from the requirement to routinely keep records. Second, the rule expands the list of severe work-related injuries that all covered employers must report to OSHA. The revised rule retains the current requirement to report all work-related fatalities within 8 hours and adds the requirement to report all work-related in-patient hospitalizations, amputations and loss of an eye within 24 hours to OSHA.

A Special Thank You We never know the impact our actions can have, what kind of ripple effect they may spread throughout our community. However, once in a while we are lucky enough to see the difference we make. Recently, we at the Safety Council were reminded by one of our students how lucky we as a business, and all of us as a community, are to have CJ Loveless as one of our First Aid/CPR instructors. The skills she imparts in the students in our classes are life changing. CJ s knowledge and dedication to her job are saving lives even when she isn t there. We want to take this time to acknowledge her excellence and remind all of you to thank her and people like her for their service. Dear CJ, A letter from a grateful student: I wanted to write you this letter to be able to express myself as best as I can using the written word. I was fortunately able to participate in the First Responder courses that you have taught at my work, Bright House Networks. I have taken your class 3 times in recent years and I can say without a doubt that it has made an impact. Monday September 13 my wife and I were witness to a motorcycle vs. red light running car. My body reacted without thought as I ran to the motorcycle victim. I was able to reach him in seconds after the collision. Just like our training I introduced myself and asked if I could help. I then took charge of the scene directing people to call 911, direct traffic, and take pictures. The victim was conscious and had few visible injuries, the most severe was a large cut to his head. I gave him a bandage that I had hastily brought and had him apply pressure. We talked while I kept him immobile and engaged so he was able to tell me where his wife was close by so I sent my wife to get her. Once the police was on scene I stayed with him until relieved by EMT s and Rescue. I introduced myself as a trained first responder and gave them a quick assessment of his accident as they took over care. His wife arrived just as they were taking him away and I was able to calm and reassure her that he was going to be okay. My wife and I then took her to the hospital to be with him. Your teaching truly did stick with me as I was able to react instinctively and perform the actions you taught us. It gives me a great sense of pride knowing that I was able to help and could do so effectively thanks to you.
