  • Federal Regulation Of Scientific Diving: Two Scientific Divers' Perspective

    On 5 November 1976 the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking with respect to commercial diving operations. This document included diving scientists and recreational diving instructors in a standard designed to protect commercial aivers. The final standard for commercial diving operations was published on 22 July 1977 and exempted recreational diving instructors but not scientists. Since 1976 a group of underwater scientists and engineers, now known as the American Academy of Underwater Sciences, worked to demonstrate that a safe and effective set of diving standards was already in place and that federal diving regulation of the scientific community was a step backward. This effort was successful on 26 November 1982 when OSHA determined that '...there are significant differences between commercial diving and scientific diving...', and amended their rules to exempt scientific diving that is '...under the direction and control of a diving program utilizing a diving safety manual and a diving control board meeting certain specified criteria.' The history of this regulation is reviewed and the current status of the regulation is detailed. The items required for exemption of a diving program from federal regulation are presented and how these items are handled by the scientific diving community is explained. Suggestions on how to establish a diving control program are offered. The consensual nature of the scientific diving community's standards is demonstrated by tracing the family tree of the Diving Safety program of the University of Rhode Island back through the University of Michigan and the University of California at Berkeley to Scripps Institute of Oceanography in the early 1950s. Comments by members of the American Academy of Underwater Sciences on the regulation and the regulatory process are included.

  • High Voltage program with a multi craft work force

    Performing high voltage maintenance with a multi craft work force in an industrial plant creates a special set of safety circumstances. The team associates may be performing mechanical maintenance in the morning, operating the process equipment during the day, and then have to perform a High Voltage switching operation later in the day. It is critical under these circumstances that the associates are properly trained and that there is a good maintenance program in place for the equipment. This paper describes how one mini mill steel plant designed a successful High Voltage maintenance program that ensures safety for its work force and provides a high level of plant reliability. The program is in full compliance with NFPA 70E and OSHA 1910.269.

  • Objectives and Concerns for Market-Based Operations

    Success in RTO/ISO markets is critically dependent on optimization of the entire value chain. Each group must understand their roles and responsibilities as well as the interplay with other groups. Developing and maintaining this environment is an organizational and technical challenge, especially considering the infancy and fluidity of RTO/ISO markets. This presentation will address specific issues of this optimization challenge using three generic groups as a basis for discussion. Generation operation and maintenance: 1) Responding to and respecting market forces (unit design, age, workforce); 2) Communication with fleet management (accurate, timely, tools); 3) Operating envelope (unit design and age, workforce, budgets). Generation fleet management: 1) Generation costs (combined cycle LTSA, unit cycling, heat rates); 2) Generation constraints (OSHA, EPA, physical operating envelope); 3) Fuel procurement, transportation, and storage; 4) Power contract obligations (sales and purchases); 5) Tools, training, and technical support (complex rules, complex tools). Generation financial accounting: 1) Settlements; 2) Feedback to operations and maintenance, fleet management; 3) Federal and state regulatory reporting; 4) Credit, SOX, cash flow

  • The Confusion Surrounding Stray Voltage

    While "stray voltage" has been a concern for farm livestock for many years, it is only within the past few years that the term has been associated with human fatalities. The industry has seen an expansion of the term's usage to describe events that some engineers feel is incorrect. This situation has resulted in costs to utilities exceeding many millions of dollars that has a questionable impact on customers increased safety. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the confusion that now exists in the area of "stray voltage". The paper will discuss the traditional definition of the term "stray voltage", as well as the recent usage of the phrase to describe more dangerous conditions such as step- and-touch voltages, temporary overvoltages, contact voltages, etc. Finally, the paper will address the status of the industries response to this issue. It will discuss the measures taken by some utilities as well as the IEEE to establish some sort of industry guidelines to address these issues

  • Resolution to DM Technology for Coal Mine Safety Data

    Coal mine safety management is one of the most important basic job, and related with almost all coal production systems. It analyzed characteristics of coal mine data which not only show data volume large, information sources excessively, but also is dynamic, random and fuzzy. It stressed that application of data mining technology to coal mine safety is an important way to improve mine safety work insight and understanding capacity. On the bais is it gave an overview of general model of DM. Then it put forward coal mine safety data mining system prototype structure and determined theme domain of coal mine safety data accordingly. It designed data mining methods according to different characteristics of coal mine safety management and had developed an early warning system software by means of data mining technology for coal mine safety. Finally it described key technologies and processes of coal mine safety data mining.

IEEE Standard for Safety Levels With Respect to Human Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields, 0-3 kHz

Develop safety levels for human exposure to electromagnetic fields from 0 to 3kHz. This standard will be based on the results of an evaluation of the relevant scientific literature and proven effects which are well established and for which thresholds of reaction are understood. Field limits will be derived from threshold current densities or internal electric fields.
