ELYRIA — One of the biggest fires in Elyria’s history threatened its industrial core and nearby neighborhoods Thursday when the former General Industries building burned, leaving a shell stretching for nearly three city blocks. Flames shot 200 feet in the air above the three-story factory at Taylor and Olive streets, which once housed the county’s largest custom molder of plastics and was the home of J-Tech, a composite molding company for sinks, tubs and other items. Burning ash rained on surrounding residential areas, but the fire was largely contained to the near-empty factory, and no one was injured, Acting Fire Chief Joseph Pronesti said. “Elyria should be proud of their firefighters,” Pronesti said. The former General Industries building burns early Thursday. The cause of the blaze — which forced a middle-of-the-night evacuation of residents in the immediate area around the factory — ha...

Gazette Investigation: Milton United Ethanol's owner had OSHA safety violations in past Share on Facebook. An online OSHA database that lists corporate safety inspection records shows United Cooperative has been investigated for accidents four times since 2003, according to records. OSHA did not fine United Cooperative for its grain-handling violation at its Hartford facility, but it initially fined the company $4,250 for the permit-required confined spaces violation, and initially fined United $4,250 for a fixed ladder violation at the facility, according to records. OSHA later rolled back the confined-spaces fine to $2,000 and eliminated the ladder fine completely, according to OSHA records that detailed an informal settlement with United Cooperative. According to Milton police and fire department reports about the April 19 incident, Guell had entered one of several grain-storage bins at the ethanol plant...

OSHA plans to use the information gathered at these meetings to explore the possible development of a proposed rule to protect workers from occupational exposure to infectious agents in settings, either where workers provide direct patient care or where workers perform tasks other than direct patient care that also have occupational exposure. One action the Agency is considering is the development of a program standard to control workers' exposure to infectious agents in settings, either where workers provide direct patient care or where workers perform tasks other than direct patient care which also have occupational exposure. These other tasks might include such tasks as: Providing patient support services e.g., housekeeping, food delivery, facility maintenance ; handling, transporting, receiving or processing infectious items ] or wastes e.g., laundering healthcare linens, transporting medical specimens, disposing of medical waste, reprocessing medical equipment ; maintaining, servicing or repairing medica...

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is responsible for overseeing workplace safety, but the organization is handicapped when it comes to dealing with small farms and agriculture sites that handle grain. More than half of all documented entrapments – where the site was known – happen on farms currently exempt from OSHA standards, according to data compiled by Purdue University’s Agricultural Safety and Health Program. “We get a lot of problems there because they’re small farms that don’t have a lot of employees so they think they can go in bins just because they have that attitude, ‘It’s not going to happen to me.’”. A main reason for the limitation is the blurred relationship between employer and employee on smaller farms, said Tom Bielema, the area director for the Peoria, Ill., OSHA office. “Some of the family farms you’re talking about may just be one person and there’s no employee-employer relationship,” said Bielema. “If there’s not an employee-employer relat...

... Bridge demolition and maintenance are leading causes of lead poisoning among workers in the United States 1-5. In June 1992, a local health department in Georgia detected elevated blood lead levels BLLs in four demolition workers. Four men were hired; one worker, aged 54 years, began work in late February; two, aged 36 and 28 years, in March; and one, aged 24 years, in early April. In early June, the steel company suggested BLL examinations of the workers; their BLLs, measured at the local health department, were 93, 90, 59, and 66 ug/dL for the 54-, 28-, 24-, and 36-year-old men, respectively. Findings from the inspection of the steel company on July 15 resulted in citations for violations of the medical removal protection and worker training provisions of OSHA's lead standard *. OSHA inspectors also investigated work conditions at the bridge from which the beams were removed; the demolition company was cited for excessive lead exposures based on the construction industry PEL of 200 ug/m3 **, failure to...

O'Connor: This is in response to your May 27 letter requesting a letter of interpretation of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration OSHA regulations addressing class I lasers. Although the degree of hazard associated with low power lasers used in the construction industry is relatively low and Class I lasers are typically not hazardous, the OSHA construction industry standard for lasers at 29 CFR 1926.54 does not differentiate with respect to class of lasers and, thus, all lasers are covered by the standard. However, except for violations based on 1926.54 j , violations of 1926.54, in the case of the Class ...

... sign News. OSHA Hits Company with Proposed Fines of $235,500 for Scaffolding and Fall Hazards Monday, February 7, 2011 More items for Good Technical Practice. OSHA issued “willful” and “serious” citations to NER Construction Management Inc., Wilmington, Mass., for allegedly exposing workers to fall, scaffolding and other hazards at a worksite in Boston. As a result of the conditions, OSHA issued the company three willful citations with $210,000 in proposed fines. OSHA also issued two other-than-serious citations with $2,000 in fines for inadequate recordkeeping. A serious citation is issued when there is substantial probability that death or serious physical harm could result from a hazard about which the employer knew or should have known. An other-than-serious violation is one that has a direct relationship to job safety and health, but probably would not cause death or serious physical harm, OSHA said. NER Construction Management has 15 business days from receipt of its citations and proposed penalties...

You and the Law - What's on OSHA's Enforcement Plate. Metalforming Magazine. Safety. Welding. What's on OSHA's Enforcement Plate. Department of Labor has a new secretary of labor Hilda Solis, D-California and is in the process of selecting a new assistant secretary for OSHA. Hot OSHA enforcement buttons focus on five areas: hexavalent chromium welding fumes, pay for personal protective equipment PPE, lockout/tagout, combustible dust and cranes. Hexavalent-chromium overexposure occurs when welding stainless and high-chrome steels. Stainless steel can contain 10.5 to 27 percent chromium. There also may be a potential for overexposure when welding carbon steel in an enclosed space, as 10 percent of carbon steel reportedly contains chromium in more than trace amounts. OSHA recommends switching from shielded-metal arc welding with a reported high likelihood of overexposure to gas-metal-arc or tungsten-gas-arc welding where possible. Lockout/tagout citations and appeals remain a major OSHA enforcement emphasis. Loc...

(1/1095) Tobacco control advocates must demand high-quality media campaigns: the California experience.

OBJECTIVE: To document efforts on the part of public officials in California to soften the media campaign's attack on the tobacco industry and to analyse strategies to counter those efforts on the part of tobacco control advocates. METHODS: Data were gathered from interviews with programme participants, direct observation, written materials, and media stories. In addition, internal documents were released by the state's Department of Health Services in response to requests made under the California Public Records Act by Americans for Nonsmokers' Rights. Finally, a draft of the paper was circulated to 11 key players for their comments. RESULTS: In 1988 california voters enacted Proposition 99, an initiative that raised the tobacco tax by $0.25 and allocated 20% of the revenues to anti-tobacco education. A media campaign, which was part of the education programme, directly attacked the tobacco industry, exposing the media campaign to politically based efforts to shut it down or soften it. Through use of outsider strategies such as advertising, press conferences, and public meetings, programme advocates were able to counter the efforts to soften the campaign. CONCLUSION: Anti-tobacco media campaigns that expose industry manipulation are a key component of an effective tobacco control programme. The effectiveness of these campaigns, however, makes them a target for elimination by the tobacco industry. The experience from California demonstrates the need for continuing, aggressive intervention by nongovernmental organisations in order to maintain the quality of anti-tobacco media campaigns.  (+info)

(2/1095) Regional organisational audit of district departments of public health.

Organisational audit of public health in the United Kingdom is rare. To provide a framework for a structured organisational audit in district public health departments in one region organisational factors contributing to efficient, high quality work were identified and compared between districts, enabling each department to identify its organisational strengths and weaknesses. A draft list of organisational factors, based on the King's Fund organisational audit programme, were rated by 52 public health physicians and trainees in 12 district public health departments in South East Thames region for their importance on a scale of 0 (not relevant) to 5 (vital). Factors with average ratings of > 4, judged to be "vital" and proxies for standards, were then used to compare each district's actual performance, as reported by its director of public health in a self reported questionnaire. In all, 37 responses were received to the rating questionnaire (response rate 71%) and 12 responses to the directors' questionnaire. Of the 54 factors identified as vital factors, 20(37%) were achieved in all 12 districts and 16(30%) in all but one district; 18 were not being achieved by two (33%) districts or more. Overall, vital factors were not being achieved in 9% of cases. The authors concluded that most departments are achieving most vital organisational factors most of the time, but improvement is still possible. The results have been used as a basis for planning the organisation of public health departments in several of the newly formed commissioning agencies. This was the first regional audit of public health of its kind performed in the region and it provided valuable experience for planning future regional audit activity.  (+info)

(3/1095) Stroke: the global burden.

Stroke is a major global health problem. It is a major cause of mortality, morbidity and disability in developed and increasingly in less developed countries. Worldwide, it is the leading cause of healthy years lost in late adulthood, and evidence indicates that the burden of stroke, particularly in terms of morbidity and disability, will almost certainly increase in the foreseeable future. This review aims to generate a better understanding of the present and projected future global burden of stroke, with particular emphasis on the non-established market economy countries (NEMEC). The first part summarizes and interprets the currently available evidence on stroke mortality, incidence, case-fatality and related disability rates from both established and non-established market economy countries. The second part reviews the main risk factors for stroke. For the modifiable factors, it examines current prevalence rates in NEMEC with a view towards identifying patterns that are relevant for predicting future rates of the disease. Reversing the consequences of stroke is difficult, thus primary prevention is of utmost importance. The potential for prevention is illustrated by the experience of Japan, which in the last two decades has seen substantial declines in stroke mortality--mostly due to reductions in dietary salt intake. The last section discusses potential strategies and approaches to effective stroke prevention and highlights other areas that need to be addressed if stroke management in the coming decades is to be effective.  (+info)

(4/1095) Quality of primary outpatient services in Dar-es-Salaam: a comparison of government and voluntary providers.

This study aimed to test whether voluntary agencies provide care of better quality than that provided by government with respect to primary curative outpatient services in Dar-es-Salaam. All non-government primary services were included, and government primary facilities were randomly sampled within the three districts of the city. Details of consultations were recorded and assessed by a panel who classed consultations as adequate, inadequate but serious consequences unlikely, and consultations where deficiencies in the care could have serious consequences. Interpersonal conduct was assessed and exit interviews were conducted. The study found that government registers of non-government 'voluntary' providers actually contained a high proportion of for-profit private providers. Comparisons between facilities showed that care was better overall at voluntary providers, but that there was a high level of inadequate care at both government and non-government providers.  (+info)

(5/1095) Protecting the poor under cost recovery: the role of means testing.

In African health sectors, the importance of protecting the very poor has been underscored by increased reliance on user fees to help finance services. This paper presents a conceptual framework for understanding the role means testing can play in promoting equity under health care cost recovery. Means testing is placed in the broader context of targeting and contrasted with other mechanisms. Criteria for evaluating outcomes are established and used to analyze previous means testing experience in Africa. A survey of experience finds a general pattern of informal, low-accuracy, low-cost means testing in Africa. Detailed household data from a recent cost recovery experiment in Niger, West Africa, provides an unusual opportunity to observe outcomes of a characteristically informal means testing system. Findings from Niger suggest that achieving both the revenue raising and equity potential of cost recovery in sub-Saharan Africa will require finding ways to improve informal means testing processes.  (+info)

(6/1095) Improving quality through cost recovery in Niger.

New evidence on the quality of health care from public services in Niger is discussed in terms of the relationships between quality, costs, cost-effectiveness and financing. Although structural attributes of quality appeared to improve with the pilot project in Niger, significant gaps in the implementation of diagnostic and treatment protocols were observed, particularly in monitoring vital signs, diagnostic examination and provider-patient communications. Quality improvements required significant investments in both fixed and variable costs; however, many of these costs were basic input requirements for operation. It is likely that optimal cost-effectiveness of services was not achieved because of the noted deficiencies in quality. In the test district of Boboye, the revenues from the copayments alone covered about 34% of the costs of medicines or about 20% of costs of drugs and administration. In Say, user fees covered about 50-55% of the costs of medicines or 35-40% of the amount spent on medicines and cost-recovery administration. In Boboye, taxes plus the additional copayments covered 120-180% of the cost of medicines, or 75-105% of the cost of medicines plus administration of cost recovery. Decentralized management and legal conditions in the pilot districts appeared to provide the necessary structure to ensure that the revenues and taxes collected would be channelled to pay for quality improvements.  (+info)

(7/1095) Efficiency and quality in the public and private sectors in Senegal.

It is often argued that the private sector is more efficient than the public sector in the production of health services, and that government reliance on private provision would help improve the efficiency and equity of public spending in health. A review of the literature, however, shows that there is little evidence to support these statements. A study of government and non-governmental facilities was undertaken in Senegal, taking into account case mix, input prices, and quality of care, to examine relative efficiency in the delivery of health services. The study revealed that private providers are highly heterogeneous, although they tend to offer better quality services. A specific and important group of providers--Catholic health posts--were shown to be significantly more efficient than public and other private facilities in the provision of curative and preventive ambulatory services at high levels of output. Policies to expand the role of the private sector need to take into account variations in types of providers, as well as evidence of both high and low quality among them. In terms of public sector efficiency, findings from the study affirm others that indicate drug policy reform to be one of the most important policy interventions that can simultaneously improve efficiency, quality and effectiveness of care. Relationships that this study identified between quality and efficiency suggest that strategies to improve quality can increase efficiency, raise demand for services, and thereby expand access.  (+info)

(8/1095) Increasing the utilization of cost-effective health services through changes in demand.

Attaining efficiency in a health care system with a budget constraint involves increasing the utilization of the most cost-effective services. This can be achieved by adjustments to prices, cost curves, or demand curves. In this paper, the potential for demand curve adjustments is examined by selecting two apparently cost-effective services (prenatal care and childhood immunization against tuberculosis), and analyzing the factors explaining their utilization. Data from recent household surveys in Burkina Faso and Niger are used. A multivariate analysis of utilization employs income, price, and taste variables. Utilization is highly sensitive to the distance which must be travelled to the health facility, a price, and taste variables. Utilization is highly sensitive to the distance which must be travelled to the health facility, a price variable. Members of certain ethnic groups tend to use the services less, other things being equal. The importance of demand-side factors like ethnicity points to certain kinds of policy interventions like information, education and communication activities which could increase the utilization of cost-effective services.  (+info)

No it just means that the World Health Org thinks that a pandemic is imminent. It happens when it has spread from person to person in two or more countries.

In the 2009 revision of the phase descriptions, WHO has retained the use of a six-phased approach for easy incorporation of new recommendations and approaches into existing national preparedness and response plans. The grouping and description of pandemic phases have been revised to make them easier to understand, more precise, and based upon observable phenomena. Phases 1–3 correlate with preparedness, including capacity development and response planning activities, while Phases 4–6 clearly signal the need for response and mitigation efforts. Furthermore, periods after the first pandemic wave are elaborated to facilitate post pandemic recovery activities.

Im going to do my bachelors in Health Services Administration. But the problem is I dont know what to do after. I was thinking getting a joint degree in MHSA/MBA or get a masters in public health with a specilization in health policy/ management.

Which degree would be best?

And as for my title would the bachelors major be considered in healthcare or business? Is the hiring outlook good?

It's Health Care Management and it requires the knowledge of business and health care administration. I think it is in it's own category.


What emerging disease has become a burden in relation to public health?


Discussion Question: choose an emerging disease and discuss the related public health burden.

This biggest issue that people are going to talk about is going to be the H1N1virus. I would have to agree with them, although I am sick and tired of hearing about the subject of H1N1. My personal belief is that the terrorist Barack Obama and his cabinet released the virus. Terrorist Obama is wanting a 20% reduction of the U.S. population by the end of 2010. In other words he (the terrorist) is planning to kill people off; maybe that is why he has been so interested in passing the stupid "health" bill.

The H1N1 virus (or Swine Flu) is the biggest burden to the public, because the government is trying to force people to take the vaccine. Health care workers are being told they will be fined over one thousand dollars and cannot work if he or she does not get the H1N1 vaccine. What kind of government (United States government) forces people to get something which could and most likely will hurt them or their children? The United States of America is supposed to be a free country, yet people do not see those freedoms. The H1N1 virus put so many people all over the world into a panic that the virus is the only thing people hear about, when it comes to medical information. Everyone understands how things spread and what they can do to stop the spread of germs and viruses. Making someone take or get a vaccine they do not want to get is wrong and should not be done. The public keeps hearing that the H1N1 vaccine is safe and there are "no" side effects. First off, there are always side effect when it comes to drugs and treatments. Second, the vaccine was not ever tested. Third, those who are saying this work for the U.S. government (being run by a terrorist). I personally will not get the H1N1 vaccine and nether will my child.


What is an interesting public health/infectious disease problem in sub-Saharan Africa?


I'm working on a research paper for a third-world developing countries political science class. I'm interested in learning more about public health in sub-Saharan Africa. I'm specifically interested in infectious disease, pediatric/vaccine health--what are some good case studies or countries to look at? I need to cite academic sources. Thanks for your help!
