Job Safety

December 30, 2004

Announcement

This is dedicated to the concept of testing individuals to determine their condition before they begin potentially dangerous work.

This location will provide a forum for discussion of issues related to job safety. And I will provide news as I hear about it relating to job safety and testing.

I encourage contributions from interested individuals whith experience in this field.

My particular approach is to advocate the use of fitness for work testing. This involves the use of short tests before work. Such tests are designed to test individuals before they begin work, particularly in a dangerous work environment. Such tests can be made sensitivite to fatigue which is a major killer on our highways and in other environments requiring good alertness.
