    OSHA: Falling Hazards During Demolition

    The construction industry is a very critical industry when it comes to safety of the workers. And when it comes to demolition, there are many unseen and surprise elements that are hard to interpret. Demolition work sites contains numerous hazards that can jeopardize the safety of the workers. While many of them are clearly visible, there are hazards which requires a keen eye and experience to locate them. Sometimes there are workplaces that may appear quite strong and safe but they may give up unexpectedly. Hence, demolition sites poses a lot of hazardous workplace situations that has to be dealt with great care.

    Risk and causes for falling during demolition
    While discussing about the hazards associated with demolition work, the most frequent and common hazard present in the workplace is the hazard of falling. There are innumerable ways this hazard can happen. Most of the times, it happens unprecedentedly. The most effective measure to counter such hazards is the art of self evaluation and judgment. This comes after enough experience in field and training. Hence an employer must always provide training to his workers regarding safety practices.

    There are many things that may lead to a fall when working in a demolition site. It can be a weak harness, undue loads on the surface, presence of paints, unseen obstructions in the way, presence of slippery material that reduces friction between the surface and the point of contact. Some other times, some moving machinery or objects may be responsible for pushing you when you are not aware of them. The unknown strength and weakness of the structures in demolition site is a reason why workers can not predict the hazards. Most of the time they look strong but collapses with little force and weights.

    OSHA measures to prevent falls
    OSHA provides some general guidelines to prevent the falling hazards in construction site. The guidelines are as follows:

    • The walls and the floors that are in poor condition and lacks support though they appear healthy must be braced or shored up if it requires workers to enter the place for some work.
    • Appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) should be selected before entering the work place and the PPE should be checked properly before using it. A worker should wear the PPE that fits him well.
    • The work site and the structures like passageways, stairs and ladders must be inspected carefully before entering. Proper illumination should be provided at the demolition site.
    • All services like electricity, gas, water, steam, sewers etc should be shut down and the concerned authorities should be notified about it.
    • Guard wall openings up to a height of 42 inches should be covered with appropriate material that can with sustain the load to be put.
    • The floor openings that are created for the disposal of the material should not be more than 25% of the total floor space.
    • When demolition material has to be dropped in the debris containers or ground, closed chutes with gates have to be used.
    • The demolition of the floors and walls should always start from the top and end as one comes downwards.
    • Any supporting structures supporting a floor should not be removed until all the floors above that floor are removed.
    • Any ornamental roof stone work or cornices should be removed before bringing the roof down.
    • If at any place, structural collapse hazard exists, the workers should not be permitted to enter the area until the structures are properly braced, shored or any other effective measure is put in place.

    The list is not exhaustive and a lot depends on the presence of mind of the worker and initiatives of the employer to ensure that perfect safety at work is maintained.

    Advancements in Medical Electronics

    Medical electronics is a domain where advancements are too late. The existing technologies or equipment like electrocardiography, X-ray medical imaging and stethoscope gave rise to the new technology developments in medical electronics. The advancements in both medical and electronics industry have led to improvement in equipment. Scientists’ new inventions help the medical professionals: physicians and paramedics in treating and diagnosing the patients. Here are a few advancements made at present in the field of medical electronics.

    Diagnostic devices
    Diagnostic devices are one of the advancements in the medical electronics field. With the help of this devices, the electrical engineers will quantify, records the sounds and displays them graphically on oscilloscope or on an chart. Now, the clinician or the physician will check the temporal relationship among the various components of the sounds displayed and then identifies the murmurs nothing but sounds and these are are the signs of the heart valves diseases or the other parts of the heart.

    The other way to understand the relation between how the heart works and the progress of disease is by looking at a plot of sounds made by the heart. Here, the engineers and the physician will measure the amplitudes of various components of phonocardiogram and also temporal relationships.

    Further advancements in this technology is made using voice printing the sounds on a 3D plot of amplitude , time and frequency components.

    Understanding electrical fields and currents is associated with mammalian cells, organisms and organs is a major advancement over the last few years. Electrocardiograph is a device, which was developed based on electricity was simple when compared to the string galvanometer developed originally by Einthoven’s.

    With the help of this electrocardiograph, the electrical activity of the heart is recorded in different directions, which helps the cardiologists to understand the rate of heart beat. Other equipment that use bio electricity is cardiac pacemakers, which helps in controlling heart beats, and electrical stimulation aural and visual senses given by Cochlear prosthesis, visual prosthesis, etc.

    Medical imaging
    Medical imaging is the other area in which medical advancements are done over last 100 years. Among the various advancements made that uses medical imaging technology two are noticeable they are CT (Computed tomographic) scanner and MRI. These both shows the images with different anatomical structures. Today many countries use the MRI (Magnetic resonance imaging) for the identification of various diseases in the body replacing or surpassing the CT scanner because the CT scanner will only scan the bone parts and other soft issues were as MRI scans the soft tissues as well as shows the contrast between tissues with varying water level.

    Nuclear Medicine Imaging:
    This advancement takes the help of nuclear medicine through which images are made to diagnose the disease process in the body with the help of physiology and cellular function. This imaging done will have radionuclides that are combined with other elements which can form chemical compounds or else they are combined with existing pharmaceutical compounds that can form radiopharmaceuticals. This nuclear medicine is know given to the patient which can localize cellular receptors or specific organs. Know the radiopharmaceuticals will give the nuclear medicine the ability to take the images. Further advancements will provide imputes to the molecular medicine.

    Imaging With Visible light
    Miniature camera technology lead to the wide spread of endoscopic devices to be produced which help the physicians to visualize the inaccessible areas of the abdominal cavity, reproductive organs and urinary tract etc. The endoscopic devices which are used earlier used fiber optic cables which are attached with external cameras to take the images but now, miniature video cameras can be affixed at the edge of the device which allows to manufacture more versatile and flexible instruments. New techniques will reduce the decontamination as they don’t have much issues with cleaning and sterilization process which is not the case in the earlier procedures.

    Other new technique called capsule endoscopy is having capsule that contains video camera and a radio transmitter that passes easily through guts which can transmit color images to the external monitor attached to the device.

    Biomedical sensors
    Sensor is the important part of the medical instrumentation system which is responsible for interfacing between biologic organism and electronic system that process data. This sensors will collect the physiological data which will interact with biological structure without any changes made in the properties.

    With the advancement of the micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) technology in biomedical sensor and instrumentation lead to the reduction in the size of the biomedical sensing device while increasing the complexity. Even though, there is a problem in the connections between the sensors and the signal processing, readout devices. This problem is know rectified with the help of wireless body sensor networks.

    Further, future enhancements in the medical electronics field will be more helpful for the physicians to diagnose the problems easily and effectively.

    Get to Know Dental Sealants

    Dental sealants are the strong plastic coatings that your dentist will apply to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth where the pits and fissures form. Sealants act as a barrier and protect the teeth from bacterial plaque that causes decay. In this article, we will discuss all about dental sealants.

    Why are these dental sealants used?
    Sealants occupy the pits and fissures of the teeth with a resin material. As these pits and fissures are filled, bacteria in the plaque will not be able to attack the teeth. With pits and fissure sealants, there are less chances of developing tooth decay when compared to those without sealants. Moreover, teeth with sealants are easier to clean, as food particles do not get trapped in the fissures.

    Types of fissure sealants
    Choosing the type of the sealant depends on one’s personal preference. However, colored sealants are more obvious in person who has already a sealant. The more obvious the sealant is, the easier it is to see whether they need replacement.

    Two types of resin based sealants are available – filled and unfilled. The fillers’ purpose is to increase the bonding strength and also resistance to wear and abrasion. As filled sealants are hard and wear resistant, it should be checked after placement and if required, should be adjusted with the hand piece (dental instrument) and appropriate bur (a cutter used in hand piece).

    Unfilled sealants have a higher ratio of resin in the filler material and does not require to be adjusted with a hand piece or any other instrument. They are self occluding. Unfilled sealants flow in to pit and fissures readily.

    Maintenance and home care
    Once the sealants are placed, your child can resume to his/her normal activity. Special care is not required for maintaining dental sealants. Good oral hygiene should be practiced with brushing and flossing.

    Switch on to the diet that is low in sugar and starch. You need to visit the dentist regularly as there is a possibility of the sealant popping out. Your dentist will check the sealant and if required will replace it.

    It is recommended to continue your dental visits regularly, as there is still chances of developing tooth decay under or around the sealant.

    Benefits for applying dental sealants

    • If properly applied, dental sealants can be very effective in preventing tooth decay.
    • Even an early tooth decay will be stopped from growing more deep, as decay causing bacteria are unable to survive when they are cut off from the food supply.
    • Sealants are safe for using on anyone’s teeth: children as well as adults.
    • If placed properly, sealants will last as long as the typical amalgam filling.
    • Lastly, applying dental sealants in advance as a preventive measure will save you from spending thousands later.
