Safety Bulletin
November 2008
"Prepare and prevent, don't repair and repent."—Author Unknown
Greetings Friends in the Name of Safety:
It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is almost here! The older we get, the quicker time seems to go by. As we take time to reflect on the many things we have to be thankful for, i.e. family, friends, home, jobs, etc., let's not forget those who are less fortunate.

We at the NCIC Safety Section are sincerely grateful for YOU, our many friends across this great state! We have hosted around nine 30-hour Accident Prevention Certificate Awareness Programs this year with several hundred participants. This program began in March of 2006 in Clemmons, NC. We could not foresee the success that this program would achieve. Time and time again, you tell us how this program has helped you with your goal of growing your Accident Prevention Program in your workplace. Our only mission is to assist you in accident prevention and we thank each of you and your employer for your continued support.

Currently, we are trying to finalize our 2009 APCAP schedule. We will be adding an ADVANCED APCAP in 2009. In order to participate, you must have completed the basic 30-hour APCAP. The ADVANCED APCAP will be two days of intense training to further assist you with your Safety & Health program.

In 2009, we will offer BOTH COURSES concurrently on the same date and location in order to better serve you.

Here are the "PROPOSED" DATES AND LOCATIONS for 2009:

  • February 9-14, 2009—Wilmington, NC
  • March 23-27, 2009—Roanoke Rapids, NC
  • June 15-19, 2009—Smithfield, NC
  • August 17-21, 2009—Flat Rock, NC
  • September 14-18, 2009—Atlantic Beach, NC
  • October 26-30, 2009—Asheboro Zoo, Asheboro, NC
We look forward to seeing you at one of our programs in 2009. Again, let us say "THANK YOU" for allowing us to be a part of your family.

Your REGIONAL SAFETY COUNCILS are continuing to work for you, so please refer to the calendar section of our Safety Bulletin for more information. Please support YOUR councils!

As always, we thank you for your support and we pledge to continue to serve your needs. We promise to continue to provide quality ACCIDENT PREVENTION training programs.

Is it a cold or is it the flu?

Cold and flu season is upon us, and unfortunately the two illnesses share more than a season—they share symptoms. In fact, the two ailments are so similar that it is often quite difficult to determine which one you have, and in many cases, it's important to do so. The flu, if not properly treated, has the potential to turn into a much more serious illness like sinusitis or pneumonia.


Though a cold can make a person quite miserable, it rarely comes with a fever of more than 101 degrees, and often goes away on its own within a week. A sore throat and a stuffy nose are common symptoms with a cold. Flu, however, often comes on more suddenly and comes with more severe symptoms. A high fever and extreme exhaustion are common with the flu. Even if you think you can tough it out, severe or persistent symptoms (like a prolonged high fever or frequent vomiting) merit a doctor's visit to determine the best course of treatment.


To ward off illness altogether, wash your hands frequently, get plenty of rest and exercise, and eat a well-balanced diet. You might also want to consider getting a flu shot if you haven't already.

Also, don't forget to get your flu shot!
Thanksgiving food poisoning not so festive!

The holiday season is approaching, and while some people look forward to holiday parties and family gatherings, many people most look forward to a perpetual spread of festive recipes and treats. Unfortunately, while you probably know that the holiday season can be rough on your waistline, you might not realize that it's also a prime season for food poisoning.


The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that there are 76 million cases of food poisoning in the United States each year. Fortunately, there are safe ways to handle food that can keep you and your guests from getting sick.


1. Wash your hands frequently—Using soap and warm water, wash your hands both before and after preparing and handling food, especially raw meat or poultry.

2. Prevent cross-contamination—Keep raw meat and poultry from touching or dripping on other foods. Cross contamination can also occur when surfaces are not properly sanitized after use.

3. Cook foods thoroughly—Meat and eggs can be particularly dangerous when they are not cooked thoroughly. For maximum safety, eggs should be cooked until firm (not runny) and meat and poultry should be cooked until juices run clear.

4. Store food properly—Perishable food should be refrigerated or frozen when not in use. Use the microwave or the refrigerator to thaw frozen foods instead of allowing them to sit out.


Many foods are prepared specially for the holiday season, and sometimes a cook's unfamiliarity with ingredients and recipes is at the root of unsafe practices in the kitchen. Remember:


- Turkeys should be defrosted in the refrigerator, not on the counter (at room temperature). Slice leftovers into serving-sized portions before storing in the refrigerator—an entire bird may be too large to store safely.

- Stuffing cooked inside a turkey is more susceptible to bacteria. Stuff your turkey only after it is cooked through and prepare turkey and stuffing separately.

- Eggs—Especially in homemade eggnog, ensure that eggs are cooked at 160 degrees before they are consumed.

- Buffets—The longer food is left out, especially after two hours, the higher the risk of food poisoning. Store food as soon as your guests are done eating.


Food poisoning usually strikes between two and four hours after eating contaminated foods and is most dangerous for the elderly and children under six. Symptoms—which are similar to the flu and include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fever, headaches, and weakness—can last up to 10 days.
Leaders that means you too!

Many people assume that in a group situation, leaders should do all the talking. The reality, however, is that leaders need to be equally as capable of listening—but it's harder than it sounds.


1. Give undivided attention. It's not worth listening to someone's feedback or opinion if you're not willing to stop what you're doing and look someone in the eye. If you don't have time to truly give your full attention, schedule another time to chat.

2. Prove it. Provide the speaker with clues to show that you are paying attention. Nodding, smiling, and asking questions will help people feel that you are invested in what they have to say. You're also likely to come away with a better understanding of their point in the end.

3. Empathize. It sounds trite, but when was the last time you really considered what it might be like to be in someone else's shoes? Try it, and you might gain new insight on a situation.

4. Wait your turn. Interrupting or changing the subject sends the message that what you have to say is more important than what someone else is offering. Give people time to express their views before expressing yours..

Safety Attitudes Are Free!

By Michael Nance

Perhaps the election results will be known by the time you read this, or maybe not. I've said it several times in the past few weeks; I'm not sure we'll know who is elected President of the United States for a few days after the election. It has been a long hard fight for many politicians including those that are local to North Carolina. Some of the campaigns have spent millions of dollars for the opportunity. I can't help but think of how much money has been raised in the process. Add to it the revenues from the lottery and wow, that's a lot of cash people have donated. More than enough to cover the increase needed for the state's budget don't you think? Yet, we all are facing cutbacks and some of the folks I know have already been told that their company is closing or at least reducing the employee head count.

Sadly, some folks will feel the need to trim safety programs. After all, on the surface it is money spent with limited return on investment. However, just like most seasoned investors will tell you, you must be in it for the long haul. Before somebody gets upset, I used the words "on the surface". Safety programs will more than pay for itself deep down. Fact is, safety is really a free attitude. Take away the incentives, the perks, and the give-aways and what do you have? For a truly dedicated safety program, you should still have employers and employees willing to do what is right regardless of who gets credit. You have a strong sense of accountability for each other and the reward of going home the same way you came in. All the while saving expenses for other critical business needs because of a good safety program. Directly, those savings coming from reduced or insurance and injury costs. These savings help carry organizations through tough times or provide salary and wage increases, or better tools to get the job done. The list goes on.

All of us with the NCIC Safety Section meet folks every day with the enthusiasm for achieving an accident free workplace no matter what. They understand what it means to use our services, as well as others, to keep safety in the forefront of every action taken. It isn't easy. Using the NCIC Safety Section directly saves you money. To be successful it takes work! Sometimes more than we thought, but aren't the rewards sweeter when we've rolled up our sleeves and tackled the hazards of the workplace with the tools and knowledge gained from listening to each other and simply being involved with safety. I do a fair amount of woodworking and I normally give my brother-in-law something I've made from the "ground up" for Christmas. Sure, I could go buy it (sometimes cheaper), but it's much more valuable and satisfying when I've poured sweat into it and made it myself. I protect it because I am proud of it. Sure I make mistakes, but I didn't get hurt in the process by cutting safety from the process. I use those safety glasses, ear plugs, and gloves when needed. With proper education and training it becomes natural and sometimes without even thinking about it. Not unlike putting my seatbelt on when I begin to drive.

Most of us have choices. We can get with the program and support our company's safety programs or not. Hopefully the people that are in control of all safety programs will make the right choice and not only keep a good solid safety program, but they will understand that our co-workers, our neighbors, and our community survive and demand it.

If you don't mind, I'd like to shift gears. You know when you get something on your mind and you seem to think about it everyday? Well, during the past several weeks, I've had a young child on my mind. His name is Timothy and he just turned eight months old. I do not recall all of the details, but he is facing life-threatening health issues. His family has faith in God and that the decisions made by the doctors and hospitals will be the right choice. They have asked for nothing more than thoughts and prayers from all who know about this little boy. I have silently expressed that the will of the Lord be done and I ask everyone else to pause just a moment here to give thought and prayer to this young man and his family.

At this writing, Timothy is awaiting the go ahead for some extremely serious surgery. He will experience Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas a little different from most children his age this year, but he will experience it. Here is a person who has made no choice to be in this position yet he remains strong and comforted. We all hope that safety will be of great importance during very technical and dangerous procedures. With strong dedication towards safety and doing the right thing from the hands that hold his life, this eight month old has a positive fighting chance to show survival.

We wouldn't think of cut backs in safety in an operating room, so why should we believe it's okay anywhere else. So when someone suggests that safety needs to be cut back I hope that you take a stand and voice your facts and feelings. A television show called Hill Street Blues used to end it's opening with the sergeant saying, "Let's be careful out there!" We can't afford not to. Timothy can't afford cutbacks in safety either. Our prayers are with you Timothy.

Abandoned Chemicals
By Mike Bingham

I'll bet you have them. Four half full bottles of chemical "A". Two cans of paint "B". A partial bag of substance "C". No one knows where they came from or to whom they belong. You got rid of a chemical last month and now there's a new container of it in the store room. Walk into another department and the scene is repeated.

These abandoned chemicals can create problems ranging from housekeeping issues to HazCom program violations. Chemicals are moved, shuffled and worked around until someone gets tired of dealing with them and throws them away, maybe sending them into the environment as a hazardous waste.

A good way to deal with this problem is by having a good chemical management plan to supplement your hazard communication plan. Establish in the plan the procedures used for getting chemicals brought into your facility. Who determines the need for a new chemical? Who assesses the safety issues encountered when a new chemical is introduced into the workplace? Who authorizes new chemicals? How is inventory managed? When chemicals are no longer needed, how do we get rid of them safely? Once these questions are answered and put in writing, training can begin. More on training a bit later.

With abandoned chemicals, as with many other issues, we should think simple. Avoid the purchase in the first place if at all possible. A chemical won't be abandoned if it never made it through your door initially. It will also never present a hazard to your workers if it isn't there. Your up-to the-minute, recently revised chemical inventory list can be used to see if there is anything in your facility already that will do the job you want done. If nothing suitable is in stock, and a new chemical is really needed and is approved, then buy and stock only the very minimum quantity you need to dependably operate your business.

Include an "adoption procedure" so people who need a chemical can access what they need as easily as possible. Establish procedures to put partial containers of chemicals in a secure storage location and post an inventory list so employees can see at a glance if a chemical they need is there. Have a simple requisition method. This way, employees can use up all of the material in a container that has been opened before cracking into a new one. Devise ways to redistribute these chemicals between departments or even among different facilities.

We have to train all employees who use or are exposed to the chemicals' hazards in the safe use of those chemicals. Once your abandoned chemical plan is operational, use it to show how hazards are reduced or even eliminated by controlling incoming chemicals. Show how managing abandoned chemicals can have a positive impact on pollution prevention, inventory costs, and recycling efforts.

Tie it into your housekeeping plan. Keeping abandoned chemicals stored properly reduces clutter and reduces the resulting risk of spills or fires caused by workers trying to do their tasks around unneeded items. Devise a way to measure your improvement. Measure your success by posting the pounds or gallons of chemicals that were adopted and used. Success brings success!

And finally, go on the Internet and search keywords, "orphan chemicals". You can see what many universities have already done to address the issue. There is some pretty good stuff out there.

'til next time!

Cozy Up To Change!


People have many different reasons for resisting change. Some people (who subscribe to the old "if it's not broken, don't fix it" maxim) fail to see how change could improve their lives. For others, change represents the unknown and threatens their sense of control.


While resisting change can do plenty of damage in your personal life, it can also do serious damage in your professional life. Even top employees can gain a reputation for causing trouble if they're constantly in opposition to new ideas that might help the business. Unfortunately, if your organization is shifting in a particular direction and you aren't going with it, you risk, well, not going with it.


Today's challenging economic environment is forcing more organizations than ever to reevaluate the way they do things, and changes that can increase efficiency or reduce costs are more valuable than ever. Employees who cling to the past instead of looking towards the future might just be the victims of one of the worst kinds of organizational changes—a reduction in force. .

Now you know. Dennis :)


Please join us in welcoming our last group of 2008 to complete our Accident Prevention Certificate Awareness Program.
As always, it is one of our greatest pleasures participating in this series of training throughout our great state. The networking, learning and fellowship is PRICELESS! We look forward to 2009!

Advanced Accident Prevention Certificate Awareness Program Coming in 2009

The North Carolina Industrial Commission's (NCIC) Safety Education Section is wrapping up the development phase of its new Advanced Accident Prevention Certificate Awareness Program (APCAP). This new class is a two-day event offered only to persons who have completed any one of the original 30-Hour APCAP classes that have been offered throughout the state over the past two years. It will build on some of the topics covered in the original 30-Hour and will add some new subjects.

Subject matter is intended to assist people with workplace safety responsibilities in reducing work related injuries and illnesses by building on concepts presented in the original 30- hour APCAP.

The first session in the course will be, "Project Management for Safety Folks". This class will cover basic project management techniques and will provide a foundation for the rest of the sessions in addition to providing a durable tool that can be used over and over again not only in safety, but in many other business activities as well.

The next session will be a class titled, "Worker's Comp How To". It will be presented by seasoned Worker's Comp personnel from the NCIC and will provide an excellent opportunity to get information straight from the source.

"Body Mapping for Ergonomics" will build on the Ergonomics class taught in the original 30-Hour sessions. It will provide a fun, unique method of identifying and fixing ergonomic issues.

"Safety and Health Audits" will be the next class and will expand upon the 30-Hour APCAP class "Safety and Health Programs". The activities will include discussing written plans and comparing them to the real world of the shop floor. Gap analysis will be covered.

On the heels of "Safety and Health Audits', the next topic will be "Observation-based Safety and Health Audits". Participants will use a Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) from their workplace to identify which behaviors are critical to ensuring safety. Discussion on how to conduct observations will be a big part of this session. Previous 30-Hour APCAP classes taught JHA, and the Observation-based S&H class will put that knowledge to use.

The first day will conclude with "Recognition Programs". In this class participants will use a template supplied by the NCIC to fill out a sample written plan that can be taken back to their workplaces and submitted for approval.

The second day will begin with "Safety Committees", a class on roles and responsibilities of a safety committee. Training and motivating the safety committee will be included as well.

The participants will move into the "Safety Math" class which is a basic overview of common metrics used by employers and safety personnel. Things learned here will carry over into the next class, "Selling Safety to Management".

Up next is "Safety Rules". In this session participants will submit their sites' safety rules to the instructors who will review them and help fill out an application for acceptance into a potential money-saving program related to the NC General Statutes 97-12 rule. If applicable, site visits can be scheduled for companies who want to take advantage of this program.

The last class of the event will be "Contractor Safety", wherein participants will fill in a contractor safety sample plan with their own site's information and have a second document ready to submit to their management for approval. Certificates will be awarded at the end of the second day, concluding the class.

We will be posting registration information in December!
