The Green Light for Safety

The Green Light for SafetySafety on the job site is easy to recognize with hardhats, earplugs and blinding neon vests. But beyond the job site, when hauling equipment from one location to the next, for instance, how can safety be ensured? It all comes down to the load and the road.Choose WiselyOptimizing the safety of drivers and others when hauling large equipment, such as excavators, crushers and conveyors, begins long before the wheels start spinning — it must start at the very beginning of the planning process. The first safety consideration should be choosing a trailer that's built for an operation's specific load requirements. A trailer designed to handle the load safely eliminates the risk of structural failure as well as associated accidents and injuries.When it comes to matching the trailer to the load requirement, capacity is a key criterion, but state laws and regulations, such as bridge laws and kingpin-to-axle distance guidelines, must also be factored. Generally, the load concentration, or the length of the deck that can handle the rated weight, is the main thing to keep in mind.A 26-foot, 50-ton lowbed can haul 50 tons, but how much of the deck those 50 tons occupy is just as important as the weight itself. One manufacturer might rate the entire length of the deck at 50 tons, while another might rate its trailer for 50 tons in a 16-foot span, and another that same weight in half the deck length.In addition to load concentration, a trailer's safety rating helps paint a more comprehensive picture of load capacity. A safety rating is an indicator of how much stress a trailer can safely handle. That stress comes from driving over uneven ground or off the road, hitting chuckholes, bouncing over bumps and crossing railroad tracks. Historically, magnification of payload weight on a trailer due to road dynamics is a 1.8 to 1 ratio. On average, the stress placed on a 50-ton-rated trailer by a 50-ton load when the rig hits those bumps, chucks and tracks equals 1.8 times 50 tons, or 90 tons.It's important to keep in mind that the 1.8 multiplier is only an average. On any given haul, the stress placed on the trailer can go above that level multiple times. If no cushion is built in to the trailer to handle those spikes in stress, there will be more potential for long-term, progressive structural damage, which can lead to trailer failure off or on the road as well as diminish the life of the trailer.Because there is no universal measure for safety ratings, they vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, from no margin to an industry high of 2.5 to 1, which is considered ample cushion.A safety rating should never be used to determine how much weight can be added over the capacity rating and still keep the load, the driver and other drivers safe. In other words, a 2.5 to 1 safety rating on a 50-ton lowbed should not be used to justify loading a trailer with 125 tons of cargo.It's important to take trailer capacity seriously. Each time it's overloaded, the dynamics of the steel change, much like a rubber band. Eventually, the steel, and therefore the trailer, will break, increasing the risk for cargo damage, accidents, and injuries.Purchasing the right trailer can be complicated but many manufacturers know capacity from top to bottom and can help contractors select the best trailer for their application.Pre-TripWhether it's a custom trailer or standard unit, once it's matched to the load, a pre-trip inspection is in order and should be done prior to taking off with each load. Walk around the trailer and ensure there is no damage or cracks in the unit's frame. Look for visible damage, such as chafed hydraulic hoses, which could spring a leak and cause the system to fail. Inspect tie down equipment, such as chains, binders and straps, for broken parts and pieces and make sure they are rated appropriately. These ratings can be found on the equipment being hauled. Also ensure the trailer isn't leaning or sagging to one side. Check brakes and confirm the tires are properly inflated to the recommended psi. Overinflated or underinflated tires won't have the proper load rating so they won't carry the weight like they should, which adds stress to the trailer. Traveling with improper tires also can cause a blowout when hauling heavy loads. Drivers can find the PSI, size, ply, and load rating on the manufacturer's VIN tag. These are just some of the things to look for to ensure safe travels with heavy-haul loads. There is a wide range of resources available that offer more information.  For a detailed list of inspection requirements, refer to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's part 396 webpage and the Driver-Vehicle Inspection Report. The Motor Carrier Safety Compliance also outlines pre-trip inspection guidelines, here as does FleetClean USA.Safety is just as important on the road, too. In addition to state regulations, keep in mind trailers have a speed rating. Manufacturers usually state a 55 mph or 65 mph rating. The slower a rig travels, the less added weight or stress is placed on the trailer. The key is to purchase a trailer that will perform at a fleet's normal operating speed. From hard hats to load concentration, safety doesn't stop at the job site. To ensure a successful project every time you must also consider the load, the road, and everything in between.Troy Geisler is the vice president of sales and marketing for Talbert Manufacturing.

Health Canada OKs 14th Supervised Consumption Site

Health Canada OKs 14th Supervised Consumption Site"We are committed to working with all partners across the country to combat the overdose crisis. Supervised consumption sites are an important part of a comprehensive response," said Jane Philpott, Canada's minister of Health.Jul 26, 2017With two mobile sites added recently, the Canadian government has now authorized 14 supervised consumption sites in Canada to help address the opioid crisis. Health Canada as of July 19, 2017, has approved a total of 14 supervised consumption sites.Bill C-37, which received Royal Assent on May 18, 2017, streamlines the application process for supervised consumption sites without compromising the health and safety of clients, staff, or the surrounding community, according to the agency.The government says opioid overdoses are claiming the lives of thousands of Canadians annually, and the impact of the opioid crisis continues to be devastating to individuals, families and communities. The two exemptions approved by Health Canada are for British Columbia's Interior Health Authority to operate two new mobile supervised consumption sites in British Columbia, one in Kamloops and one in Kelowna. They will offer supervised injection services and will be more geographically flexible to better serve clients. They can also direct clients to complementary harm reduction services."We are committed to working with all partners across the country to combat the overdose crisis. Supervised consumption sites are an important part of a comprehensive response," said Jane Philpott, Canada's minister of Health. "I am pleased to see these exemptions approved for Kamloops and Kelowna, British Columbia so they now have additional tools to address the crisis and provide further support to those who need it."For more information on what the government is doing to address the opioid crisis, visit Let's block ads!

Chevron Agrees to Spend $20 Million in Process Safety Settlement

Chevron Agrees to Spend $20 Million in Process Safety SettlementThe settlement resolves Chevron's appeal of the citations Cal/OSHA issued after the Richmond refinery fire in 2012.Jul 25, 2017Chevron Corp. has agreed to a process safety settlement with Cal/OSHA of the citations issued after the Aug. 6, 2012, fire at the company's refinery in Richmond, Calif. -- an incident that prompted California to enact a new refinery safety regulation earlier this year. Chevron will spend an estimated $20 million on process safety improvements called for in the settlement, and the settlement resolves Chevron's appeal of the citations Cal/OSHA issued; they alleged 17 violations of safety and health standards, and the agency classified six as serious and nine as willful.Cal/OSHA announced the settlement July 24 and said it meets and exceeds the refinery safety rule."The settlement requires Chevron to exceed current and upcoming requirements and to use new and innovative methods recently developed by engineering experts in the petroleum refining industry to ensure the safe operation of process safety equipment," said Juliann Sum, head of Cal/OSHA. "This means safer operations at the refinery, which will help protect workers and those who work and live nearby." Chevron's improvements will include:Replacing all carbon steel piping that transports corrosive liquids with chrome alloy piping, which has better corrosion resistance, at an estimated cost of $15 million.Developing and implementing criteria and procedures, at an estimated cost of $5 million, to monitor equipment to alert operators when equipment should be replaced. Cal/OSHA's announcement describes this as "a new and innovative practice recently development by refinery engineering experts." Let's block ads! (Why?)

'Punch Drunk’: The Brains of 202 Football Players, 177 Cases of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy

In a report published in 1928 in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), Dr. Harrison S. Martland coined the phrase “punch drunk” to describe the neurological symptoms exhibited by boxers who were exposed to repetitive head trauma in the ring. Eventually, the condition described by Martland was named dementia pugilistica, and now is known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). A large team of researchers have evaluated the brains of 202 deceased former football players who played high school, college, semiprofessional and professional football and found that the brains of 177 players (87 percent) showed signs of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). Of the 14 deceased players who only played in high school, three showed mild cases of CTE. However, the longer the players were involved in the game and higher the level of performance, the more likely they were to have developed more severe cases of CTE.“Clinicopathological Evaluation of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy in Players of American Football,” published in the July 25 issue of JAMA, found that of the 111 deceased NFL players examined, 110 had brains that exhibited signs of CTE (99 percent), a progressive neurological condition that results from repeated head trauma. The condition can result in mood swings, depression, anxiety, feelings of hopelessness, violent outbursts, cognitive impairment and dementia and only can be diagnosed by an autopsy after death.The median age of death for players with mild CTE was 44 years. Researchers noted that the most common cause of death for study participants with mild CTE was suicide (27 percent). The median age of participants with severe CTE pathology was 71 years, and the most common cause of death (47 percent) was neurodegenerative – dementia- and parkinsonian-related.“Nearly all of the former NFL players in this study had CTE pathology,” wrote the researchers, “and this pathology was frequently severe. These findings suggest that CTE may be related to prior participation in football and that a high level of play may be related to substantial disease burden.”They went on to say that several other football-related factors – such as age at first exposure to football, duration of play, player position, cumulative hits and linear and rotational acceleration of hits – could influence CTE risk and disease severity.The NFL, responding to a request for comment from CNN, said the organization will continue to work with “a wide range of experts to improve the health of current and former NFL athletes,” and added that many unanswered questions “relating to the cause, incidence and prevalence of long-term effects of head trauma such as CTE” remain.Let's block ads!
