There are multiple factors to consider when selecting the most appropriate foot protection. Safety: Consider safety toe caps, metatarsal guards, steel plate soles, sole material and overall construction materials used. Fit: The end of the day is the best time to try on a new pair of shoes or boots; one-third of men are wearing shoes that don't fit properly. Comfort: Your feet should be immediately comfortable, you should not need a break-in period. When feet are comfortable, your knees, hips, and lower back are better aligned and supported. Be aware that no footwear can provide protection against all injuries.
Inside the Washington, D.C., beltway, scientists and researchers at the Naval Medical Research Center work diligently to combat malaria for the American war fighter and the global population, as shown in this 2017 U.S. Department of Defense video.
This 2017 National Mining Association video is about CORESafety Module 15. Do you want to prevent future occurrences of a particular mining incident? Then it’s critical to investigate what happened in a timely manner and promptly report the details as accurately and with as much integrity as possible. Start by understanding the two safety and health incident categories that are dictated by laws and regulations, and require different types of reporting: Incidents reportable to regulatory authorities and incidents that are non-reportable to regulatory authorities.

The National Association of Tower Erectors (NATE) recently released a safety video highlighting the new ANSI/ASSE A10.48 Standard. The 2017 video is the first to debut as part of Volume 2 of the NATE Climber Connection series.
The A10.48 Standard – Criteria for Safety Practices with the Construction, Demolition, Modification and Maintenance of Communications Structures has been described as a game changer for the industry because it has the distinction of being the first comprehensive standard encompassing the entire tower construction, service, and maintenance industry.
The Climber Connection Volume 2 video includes an overview of the A10.48 Standard and includes practical information on gin poles and rigging class guidelines for the industry to follow in accordance with the standard. The video also includes epic aerial views and footage of hard working tower crews in action at a communications tower site.

Months and sometimes years of planning go into the many California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) projects. When it comes to bridge demolition, careful coordination and monitoring is a necessity when placing the charges or looking at the effects of the blast on the surrounding environment. And timing can be critical. But what happens when Mother Nature gets involved? This February 2017 Caltrans News Flash shows how Caltrans recently had to quickly switch gears when the first demolition of the old Antlers Bridge in Shasta County was affected by severe weather that produced an unexpected outcome.
Recent winter storms have seriously impacted roadways across California. U.S. Highway 50 in El Dorado County has been especially hard hit. In this Caltrans News Flash, spokesman Tony Arias takes you behind the scenes where a portion of the highway has given way, resulting in the reduction of the roadway to one lane in each direction.
NIST researchers have looked to one of nature's best chemical detectors – the dog – to help make today's chemical detection devices better at sniffing out explosives and other contraband materials. This 2016 video explains the concept of biomimicry and how the research can enhance chemical and pathogen detection. For more information, visit http://go.usa.gov/x8U8w.
We have all seen fire extinguishers around our workplace as well as in the home. Have you ever taken the time to actually look at the extinguisher to see what type it is? Do you know if you have the right extinguisher for the potential threats that may be present? Do you know what the letters and symbols on the extinguisher mean?
