A few months ago, we received a call from a customer who needed to monitor dust and noise at a large construction site that abutted a residential area. It’s an application that is gaining momentum as city footprints continue to shrink and as existing infrastructure is upgraded or removed and replaced.
According to the initial conversation that Lab Supervisor Dale Taylor had with the customer, “he wanted to mount a TSI DustTrak and a 3M SoundPro to a wall.” The customer was also expecting to manually monitor and record the data 24 hours a day.
OSHA announced its Fiscal Year 2016 preliminary top 10 most frequently cited safety violations in the workplace at NSC. We are posting them here as a reminder to all that safety is a top priority, and it can never be taken for granted. Fall protection topped the list, which was tabluated from October 1, 2015 to September 30, 2016.
