  • Pilot Study Shows Visual Literacy Training Improves Hazard Recognition

    “About 90 percent of the information people consume is visual,” said John Dony, director of the Campbell Institute. “Taking in that much visual data can lead us to have inattentional blindness – only seeing what we deem important to see but being blind to many other details, like potential hazards. That’s why training workers to better see where those hazards might exist is crucial to workplace health and safety.”

  • OSHA Reminds Employers to Prevent Workplace Carbon Monoxide Exposure

    Carbon monoxide overexposure symptoms can include headaches, dizziness, drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, or tightness across the chest. Severe overexposure can lead to neurological damage, coma, and death.

  • Introduction to Advanced Back Calculation

    What comes to mind when there is a toxic chemical release? The most obvious responses involve evacuation or shelter in place of the people in the path of the plume. To predict the path, area, and severity of a plume impact, you need a dispersion model. The basic information required to initiate a dispersion model is weather data, identification of the chemical, and the rate of the chemical release. However, the Achille' heel of this information is the release rate specification: "How big is the hole?" SAFER Systems has developed and patented a unique scheme for estimating the release rate. The algorithm to implement the scheme is called Advanced Back Calculation® (ABC). The idea basically involves “reverse engineering” a dispersion model. While we usually input the release rate to the dispersion model and obtain the concentration field for the plume-impacted area, in ABC we utilize the concentration field data to estimate the release rate.
