Occupational safety and health inspection scores predict rates of workers' lost-time injuries
Relationships between safety inspection scores and occupational injury rates among civilian employees in 11 types of U.S. Navy shore facilities were examined. Workplace inspection scores were significantly predictive of lost-time injury rates, even in the presence of statistical controls for differences in facility characteristics. Results suggest that even a 1% improvement in safety inspection scores would yield an expected 1% decrease in the rate of severe injuries. Because of the large number of civilian employees at these facilities, the reduction in total injury costs would be nearly USD 2 million per year.

Factors associated with exposure in Occupational Safety and Health Administration data
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) inspection data on airborne exposures in similar exposure groups for the period 1979-1989 were analyzed: exposures to lead in the battery manufacturing industry; to perchloroethylene among dry cleaners; and to iron oxide among metal arc welders. The analysis provided evidence of trends in levels of exposure and also examined the effects of the year, type and scope of the inspection, and of the size and union status of the establishments. Results showed that OSHA data is amenable to analysis that can provide valuable insights about workplace exposures.

Wage workers in agriculture: Conditions of employment and work
Les ouvriers agricoles: conditions d'emploi et de travail [in French]
This ILO report on agriculture worldwide identifies the two major occupational hazards as the use of machinery and cutting tools (in particular, tractors and harvesters) and agrochemicals. Safety and health regulations are applied sporadically, and despite international standards, the incidence of agricultural hazards in most countries is poorly documented. ILO data on fatal occupational injuries suggest that agriculture is a high-risk activity. In many countries, labour inspection in agriculture does not appear to be given priority. Recommendations for improvements are put forward.

Persuading, supporting, obliging
Convaincre - Soutenir - Contraindre [in French]
This article discusses the challenges faced by labour inspectors of CSST (Commission de la santé et de la sécurité du travail) in the Province of Quebec (Canada) since Jan.1996, when the inspection and safety activities of this organization were defined. There are three main actions open to inspectors under the new system: 1. persuasion (create conditions favourable to the development of a "safety culture" within the enterprise through the interpretation of an action plan (joint labour-management safety procedures, improvement and adaptation of the work station, safety by design, etc.); 2. support: the enterprise is helped directly by calling upon CSST services or by adapting support activities to its OSH needs; 3. obligation: in case of obvious bad will or of imminent danger (this may also be extended to the suppliers of equipment or of dangerous substances).

Development of walkdown procedures and pilot study for the assessment of topsides equipment subject to blast induced vibrations
A methodology for the assessment of offshore platform topsides equipment was developed based on walkdown techniques: methodical, on-site visual evaluations of the equipment. The methodology was verified in a pilot study of a mid 1980s vintage North Sea platform. Two critical safety related systems with representative mechanical and electrical equipment were selected for demonstration purposes. Conclusions are presented which show the feasibility of the method and discuss key points required for its correct implementation, limitations to its use and potential further applications. Glossary.
