Because of accelerated efforts to prevent damage to buried utilities, potholing is becoming a standard practice on a growing number of utility jobs.
Pollman says CGA efforts focus on implementing best-practice procedures identified in the Common Ground Best Practices Study, recognized as the most effective guidelines yet developed for preventing damage to underground facilities, and one of CGA's primary roles is coordinating information and communications among the various organizations involved in building, maintaining, and operating the utility infrastructure.

Editor's Note: This pollution prevention article is one in a series written for the Daily Newsbulletin by Sonja Salzman of the Laboratory's Pollution Prevention (RRES-PP) Program Office.
A big problem for workers at the Material Recycling Center (MRF) at Technical Area 60 was the emissions from a skid-steer loader used at the facility.
The highest concentrations of pollutants are produced during start-up of machinery, so the CleanDIESEL muffler-converter is especially effective because the skid-steer loader is frequently turned on and off during the day.

Some machines connect the liftarm control to the seat belt to prevent movement of the lift arm unless the seat belt is fastened.
The clearance inside the garage was low and prevented the lift arms from rising enough to use the liftarm supports (sliding pins) mounted near the top of the ROPS.
On October 29, 1993, a 26-year-old male hog farmer was fatally injured when he was caught between the frame of a skidsteer loader and the liftarm hydraulic cylinder.

 Issue 4 The Partnership for Safe Driving On-Line News Letter
The administration also proposed a requirement that large trucks be equipped with tamperproof electronic recorders that keep track of the number of hours a truck is driven.
Much of the industry's criticism is aimed at the recorders, which they describe as heavy-handed but which so obviously would prevent them from continuing to perpetrate the fraud upon which the industry has come to depend.
We hope that, with these improvements, the interlock system may eventually be viewed not just as a punishment and deterrent for DWI offenders but as a primary prevention strategy for the broader population, presumably in exchange for lower insurance premiums.

 Bosch in Japan - Press Info - Bosch at the 39th Tokyo Motor Show 2005
If the driver suddenly lifts his or her foot off the gas pedal, for example, the "Electronic Brake Prefill" function immediately generates pressure in the braking system, bringing the brake pads gently into very light contact with the brake discs.
The increasing degree to which vehicles are being fitted with ESP® systems creates the ideal conditions for networking electronic skid prevention with other active systems.
But it makes good sense to combine ESP® with passive safety systems as well: within the framework of its CAPS (Combined Active and Passive Safety) program, Bosch is working at supplementing ESP® with sensors which monitor the vehicle's environment, and at incorporating passive safety systems in the processing of this sensor data.

While a standard automotive engine will run on these fuels, there are some performance differences, notably a loss of power, due to the slower combustion of the alternative fuels.
The power loss can often be reduced or eliminated by retuning the engine ignition, or fitting an electronic dual fuel ignition system that compensates for the slower burning fuel.
The need to equip filling stations and vehicles with pressure vessels to hold these gaseous fuels and the more stringent safety inspections means that they are only economical in high mileage vehicles or if there are installation incentives.

 The Prevention of Injuries In In-line Skating
In less than a decade of experience with in-line skating, the scientific literature has provided a clear indication of the types of injuries associated with the sport, their frequency and severity, and the circumstances under which they occur.
Despite the general consensus among physicians, epidemiologists, educators, and manufacturers that specific protective equipment could reduce the incidence and severity of injuries to in-line skaters, there is some evidence that wrist guards, as currently designed, may transfer the location of the injuries instead of preventing them.
reported that if wrist guards are to fulfill their function of causing the skater to skid, rather than fall on the wrist, the impact will be transferred to the torso, thereby necessitating the use of a helmet to protect the head.

Inexperienced, as well as experienced drivers, can prevent crashes by avoiding distractions and maintaining control of their vehicles.
Even before the driver has time to react and apply the brakes, the seatbelts will tension and restrain the driver's and passengers' torsos, preventing their bodies from moving forward during the braking maneuver and ensuring a safe seating position.
At the same time, the seat cushions of the front passenger and rear seats will automatically tilt to the rear, while the door panels will move into the car's interior and mold themselves around the occupants' hips like protective shields.
