ASSE Student Section at ISU December 2010 Volume 1 Issue 1 Safety Management Move to College of Technology The 2010-11 school year has not started off the same for the occupational safety management programs’ students and faculty members. In the beginning of the year, the Safety Management program moved from its original setting of The College of Nursing, Health, and Human Services to the new location at the College of Technology. The final approval is pending for this sudden transformation. This transition puts the Occupational Safety Management program in the department of The Built Environment. We join with two other programs; Construction Management and Architectural Interior Design. This is a considerable change for the safety program which can provide endless opportunities for the students and faculty to grow, expand, and play a major roll at college and even university levels. On this note, here at the student section of ASSE, we like to take this move as a good sign and make positive changes in our activities at ISU. We plan to make the Safety Management program more visible on campus, in our community, and hopefully all over the nation! This is the very first issue of our student newsletter and our first step toward our new goals. This newsletter will be followed by a new webpage for the ASSE Student Section and more lectures to attend for our lecture series to mention just a few of our new attributes.

This picnic had special meaning to the students because Dr. Campbell is no longer teaching at ISU since the beginning of this semester. More than 25 students, faculty and staff of the safety management program attended the picnic and very much enjoyed their time (as seen below). Left to Right: Dr. Ernie Sheldon, Ryan Frick, and President Ryan Harmon were just a few members who joined the annual picnic held by the ASSE group. Lecture Series This year, the ASSE student section of ISU has been contacting safety professionals all over Indiana to come and speak to the students of the safety program. On November 8th, Larry Newton of Ellettsville, Indiana spoke to Dr. Moayed’s Industrial Hygiene 1 class. Larry is an Adjunct Professor of Industrial Hygiene and Safety at Indiana University. He is a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) and Certified Safety Professional (CSP). He was the Corporate Manager of Industrial Hygiene for Georgia- Pacific Corporation in Atlanta, Georgia. He has done a lot of consulting for different industries over his career. He spoke to the students about his most recent job. This past August, he did an Industrial Hygiene survey for a company’s noise exposure, particulates not otherwise regulated (PNOR), and other chemicals that industrial workers were breathing. He shared with the students the instruments he used at that worksite including air sampling and noise exposure machines. He explained the results he received from the samples he took and then discussed the recommended engineering controls that included ventilation, dust collection, and respirators. The students learned more about Industrial Hygiene elements that went along with the subjects being studied in class. The lecture was entertaining and informational. Larry’s company was greatly appreciated.

Make sure your portable space heater has been tested for safety. Look on the bottom for a label such as ETL, UL or CSA. Portable space heaters need to have plenty of space around them. Place portable space heaters at least three feet away from anything that can burn - including furniture, people, pets and curtains. There should always be an adult in the room when a portable space heater is on. Turn off space heaters before leaving a room or going to sleep. Supervise children and pets at all times when a portable space heater is in use. Never use portable space heaters to dry clothing or blankets.
