Back to Basics

Employers have certain responsibilities under federal or state requirements to provide a workplace free from recognized hazards. But how do they know or prove this is done? A safety hazards analysis conducted by a professional is a great way to start, but the following should also be in place through policies, programs, or procedures:

  • Keeping employees from entering or being in any workplace that is not safe;
  • Constructing a safe workplace;
  • Prohibiting alcohol and narcotics from the workplace;
  • Prohibiting employees from using tools and equipment that are not safe;
  • Establishing, supervising, and enforcing rules that lead to a safe and healthy work environment;
  • Controlling chemical agents (including pesticides); and
  • Protecting employees from biological agents (e.g., spiders, snakes, etc.).

WSU Students Get a Behind-the-Scenes Look at Science in the Real-World Workplace

Dade Moeller participated in Washington State University Tri-Cities' first annual Science Industry Day with hands-on labs on Radiation Protection and Industrial Hygiene.

Rob Winslow (L) works with WSU Tri-Cities students as they perform radiation surveys of Fiestaware plates.

It’s one thing to listen to a science lecture in a university classroom, wondering what your future degree will mean in terms of a career . . . but it’s another story to actually visit a local science-based company, meet the scientists, learn about their day-to-day jobs, and get hands-on experience with their high-tech tools.

It was for this reason that we were so excited to host a small — but mighty — group of science students from Washington State University Tri-Cities on March 16 as part of the university’s first annual Science Industry Tour!

WSU Tri-Cities’ Science Industry Tour is a one-day “behind the scenes” tour of local science-based businesses. It is an opportunity for students to be exposed to real workplace environments and get a glimpse of careers in their major.

(And, of very important note is that these students gave up their Monday of Spring Break to participate in the tour! We certainly admire their dedication!!!)

To make sure each student had some “hands-on” opportunities, as well as the chance to ask questions of our technical experts, we set up two hands-on labs in our conference rooms. One was focused on Industrial Hygiene, while the other covered Radiation Protection.
