An evaluation of respirator maintenance requirements
A telephone survey of 28 companies using negative-pressure air-purifying respirators revealed that while the majority of companies were meeting requirements for respiratory protection and respirator maintenance, some improvements were necessary: inspection of all respirator parts should be carried out before and after each use; replacement parts should be made readily available on site; regular cleaning should be performed; and more hands-on practice with respirators and their maintenance should be incorporated into training sessions.

Magnetic REED position sensors. Rules for use in safety applications
Détecteurs de position magnétiques à lames souples [in French]
This study concerns the operating principles and characteristics of magnetic REED position sensors and the situation with regard to regulations and standards. It describes the tests carried out and their results. Being airtight, explosion-proof, chemical-resistant and easy to clean, these devices are replacing conventional mechanically operated position detectors in harsh environments. Objections have been raised, however, against the use of this type of sensor in safety applications, for example: possibility of defeating the device, sensitivity to mechanical vibrations and the very serious risk due to the welding of the contacts. The results of the study provide some answers to these objections, which include application of the redundancy principle (without fully eliminating the danger of contact welding) and the use of a sensor-specific control magnet ("coded magnet") to limit the possibility of defeating the device.

Overlapping of plant safety functions - Professionalism and professionalization
Überschneidung betrieblicher Sicherheitsfunktionen. Verberuflichung und Professionalisierung [in German]
This research report illustrates a number of important developments currently taking place in the area of professional performance of safety functions. The combination of tasks, especially those of labour and environmental protection, is an important new trend. The professional performance of safety functions in Germany must fit into the existing economic structure. This demands a rethinking of the concepts of training and development. It is only possible to establish and maintain professionalism if professionals can develop the specialized knowledge appropriate for solving urgent problems. It is argued that the area of safety is a demanding engineering job and that it is not therefore possible to take on this function as a sideline without the appropriate training.

Sicheres Instandhalten [in German]
Thanks to mechanization, manual handling operations are reduced and therefore safety at the workplace is improved. However, this mechanization makes maintenance and repair of machinery all the more important. This safety guide aimed at workers reviews available safety strategies applying to personnel (workers' training), working techniques and work organization. Other problems, like maintenance work conducted in small locales and the maintenance of buildings are also dealt with. Check lists for the maintenance of machinery, equipment, small locales and buildings.

A protocol for systematic workplace investigation in the rubber manufacturing industry
A protocol for systematic workplace investigation in the Dutch rubber manufacturing industry has been developed. The protocol, based on results and experiences of an industry-wide hygiene study, makes it possible to evaluate and control hazardous working conditions in rubber manufacturing facilities not included in the hygiene survey. Emphasis is placed on the assessment of exposure to particulates, rubber fumes, solvents and noise, and of dermal exposure to contaminants, but also of exposure to vibration, extreme climate conditions, deleterious working postures, accident risks and unhealthy working habits. Data were collected by using questionnaires and check-lists with the analysis being performed using a large number of decision trees which are based on the best technical means of controlling hazardous working conditions. A test was carried out to compare the results of the protocol with results of the hygiene study. Although this test indicated that the protocol does not generate quantifiable results, it was concluded that it could be a very useful tool for evaluating control measures, for indicating better means of controlling hazardous working conditions and for setting priorities for exposure monitoring and workplace improvement.

Predictors of hearing protection use among workers - Implications for training programs
A conceptual Health Promotion Model was used to identify predictors of hearing protection use among 504 manufacturing workers. In general, the workers reported using hearing protection more than two-thirds of the time they were required to do so; about 40% reported using it all the time and about 10% reported never using it. The strongest predictors of use were self-efficacy, perceived benefits, perceived value and barriers to use. Items in the barriers scale were most strongly correlated with use and had the greatest potential for change. These factors may therefore be used as the basis of a training intervention programme.
