There are many challenging tasks when developing autonomous driving features to cope with the various changes to the environment. Often lane markings are faded or are covered with snow or dirt and can be difficult for a camera-based detection system. In this report, VSI addresses the application of HD map assets to improve the safety and performance of automated vehicle features within the context of lane keeping and trajectories. VSI has been examining applications of HD maps in our test vehicle. In a previous report, we discussed map-based Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) using the advised speed attributes from HERE’s HD map data. In this report, we apply HERE’s HD map data to a lane keeping application and examine performance of lane keeping with a map-based approach compared to a camera and computer vision-based approach.

With companies and executives being held accountable for incidents in the workplace, the issue of workers’ health and safety has become a persistent concern for organizations around the world. And with varying standards across borders, confusion about what companies need to do is rampant. This need for an international consensus standard on workplace health and safety prompted the proposal of ISO 45001 in 2013. The standard, passed in March 2018, now serves as the international guide on occupational health and safety (OH&S) and outlines relevant methods and benchmarks. With insight from expert leadership, this whitepaper gives you the complete guide on how to work with the new standard. You'll learn: • Why ISO 45001 matters and its impact upon your business • The benefits and pathway to becoming certified • Important considerations for the contractor selection process

In the beginning of 2019, a National Safety Council (NSC) study revealed that for the first time in US recorded history, the odds of dying from an opioid overdose (1:96) surpassed those of dying in an auto accident (1:103). As a result, opioid overdoses are now the number one cause of preventable injury deaths in the United States. The growing trend of opioid-related workplace incidents is a major concern for supply chains across the world. In fact, a recent study by Massachusetts Department of Public Health shows higher opioid overdose incidents occurring in industries that have a higher chance of worker-related injury. Among these, construction and manufacturing are the two industries most heavily affected. This whitepaper discusses tips for dealing with the opioid epidemic and gives clarity around OSHA drug testing regulations.

Safety has always been Eaton’s highest priority and we work closely with the NEC (National Electric Code) to ensure new policies continue to protect our most valuable resources, people. Eaton, the NEC, NEMA, and other organizations have long maintained that molded case circuit breakers are not suitable for repair or refurbishment. While changes to the code for 2020 do not change that position, they do provide clarity on what it means to be refurbished and what is now required when a suitable product is refurbished, including clearly marking the item as refurbished and removing the original manufacturer’s listing mark. The new code distinguishes between general maintenance like replacing a breaker, and refurbishment, altering a piece of equipment to a once again operational state. Because a refurbished unit cannot be tested to the manufacturer’s test protocol, it cannot continue to carry the original listing mark. Read the article below and learn about "reconditioned", and what the NEC is doing to reinforce that UL489 molded case circuit breakers are not suitable for refurbishment or repair.

Electricity provides us with lights and power, both on the job and at home. It’s such a normal part of our lives that we often forget that all that power can be dangerous, too. We’ve all experienced minor electric shocks, but shocks can be severe enough to kill. Careless use of electricity causes 10 percent of job- related deaths, as well as many serious injuries. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has some very detailed regulations designed to keep electricity from becoming a dangerous hazard.

Published By: Clarion     Published Date: Oct 30, 2013
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recently issued a new rule, effective September 2013, which updates OSHA’s 1971 workplace safety sign and tag formats with today’s best practice safety signage designs as defined by the latest American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Z535 standards. The OSHA signage change means that, over time, as employers adopt the newer ANSI Z535 best practice safety tag and sign formats, the United States will increasingly have a single, national uniform system of hazard recognition. Safety signs installed in facilities and public areas, temporary safety tags placed on equipment, and safety labels placed on products will all be designed using the same formatting principles. The outcome of such consistency is expected to be significantly more effective communication in the workplace. That, in turn, should help achieve the objective of fewer accidents and more lives saved from tragedy.

Occupational diseases and even death can be caused by air contaminants or oxygen deficiency in work areas. Employers must provide respirators and training to each employee who is or may be exposed to air contaminants or oxygen-deficient atmospheres when engineering and administrative controls cannot feasibly or effectively reduce exposures to safe levels. Workplaces with respirators must establish a written respiratory protection program that includes respirator selection criteria, employee training, medical evaluations, and fit-testing procedures.
