The Alarm tones go off in the Fire Station about 2:45 pm – the voice says 3 and 1 dispatch (3 engines and 1 ladder) electrical fire in garden office complex. The firefighters head to the apparatus bay, jump in their turnout pants and boots that have been placed near the truck and head to the call lights and siren. When they arrive on scene, the initial report is that a construction company hit an electrical line nearby which resulted in a small explosion and a small fire in this garden office complex. The engineering system extinguished the fire as per design and fire code.
OHD has recently partnered with the Chun Shan Medical University and provided them with an OHD Quantifit mask fit testing device. Providing these up and coming students with the capabilities to see and test with OHD's controlled negative pressure technology will further enhance their knowledge on the importance of fit testing when they enter the workforce.
In March 2018, after a five-year process involving more than 60 countries, a brand new international safety and occupational health standard, ISO, was published. The standard works to set a new benchmark in worldwide occupational safety by providing effective, real-world solutions for worker safety. On a global scale, the new ISO standard will continue to shape the health and safety profession and directly impact how all organizations manage their health and safety programs through hazard controls and risk reduction.
