New Workshop Designed to Bring Safety Home

The National Safety Council says its straightforward vision is to make the world safer. It expounds on that statement, saying its members strive to save lives by preventing injuries and deaths at work, on the roads, and in homes and communities.

It is the latter part of that vision statement that will receive center-stage attention in a new-for-2009 "Off-the-Job Workshop" that will be conducted for three hours--from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.--on Tuesday, Oct. 27.

This hands-on event--"Bringing Safety Home: Developing and Sustaining Off-the-Job Safety and Health Programs--will be designed to help safety and health advocates make the case for off-the-job and health programs while showing them how to collect, understand, and use data to develop programs that are effective and relevant for workers once they leave the worksite. Experts will show participants how to create work plans for a successful program start-up, as well as discover their resource options and how to effectively evaluate their efforts.

    The MGC Simple Plus

    The MGC Simple Plus is a simple-to-use, portable multi-gas detector that runs continuously for three years without needing to be recharged or routinely calibrated after its initial charge and calibration during manufacturing. The detector reliably tests a worksite’s atmosphere for hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide, oxygen and combustible gases (LEL). Additionally, it is durable enough to withstand the harshest treatment and environments, which is why it has an IP 68 rating. The MGC Simple Plus is also compatible with a variety of accessories, such as Gas Clip Technologies’ new GCT External Pump. Visit gascliptech.com for more information. 3
