Bullying Can Continue in Adulthood When the topic of bullying arises, many think back to those days as a youth where some nasty kid on the playground made life miserable for passive children who wanted no part of an altercation. The yellow-eyed villain Scut Farkus in the 1983 film “A Christmas Story” is the prototypical bully. In fact, his role was so iconic that the actor who played him, Zack Ward, now spearheads an anti-bullying campaign, using his role in the movie to create awareness about what bullying is and how to stop it. These days, the subject of bullying has become somewhat of a school administrator crusade as most no longer view it as

New Protocols for Respirator Fit Testing Released The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) has released a final rule regarding respirator fit testing protocols.

How Following OSHA Rules — and Taking Safety Seriously — Saves Lives in the Workplace When a worker was killed after a crane fell, crushing the man, an OSHA inspection showed that the accident could easily have been avoided by extending outriggers designed to keep the crane from tipping.

On that day, he left home that morning, having no idea
When it Comes to Confined Spaces, There’s No Room to Skip on Safety Precautions. In January 2017, a utility worker in Key Largo, Florida, opened a manhole cover and went under a recently paved section of road to investigate why it had settled unevenly. When he stopped responding to coworkers above ground, a second worker went in to see if he needed help. When both stopped responding, The Washington Post reported, a third man entered.
