You may also know that we’ve been creating updates on the progress of Z490.2 because Jeff Dalto of Convergence Training & Vector Solutions has been one of the folks helping to create Z490.2.

Look for those podcasts at ASSP soon (we’re recording both on Tuesday, October 15 and presumably both will be published shortly after).

NIOSH makes an extremely handy Pocket Guide to Chemical Hazards (Pocket Guide or NPG) that industrial hygienists and safety professionals can use to evaluate chemical hazards and create safer, healthier workplaces.
In this installment of our ongoing Industrial Hygiene Basics article series, we’re going to give you an introductory explanation of the Pocket Guide.
All good quality management efforts, including those following and/or in compliance with the ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems Standard, include an emphasis on risk management and the Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycle for continuous improvement.
In this article, we give a brief introduction to risk management and the PDCA cycle and their relation to quality assurance and quality management.

Here’s what Vector Solutions has pulled together for you this month:
If you’re involved in food/beverage production and have food safety responsibilities, you’re required to fulfill Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point, or HACCP, compliance requirements (see 21 CFR parts 120 and 123).
HACCP is a systematic and preventive food safety approach intended to avoid the introduction or and/or contamination of food by biological, chemical, and physical hazards rather than simply inspecting food products after their production to determine if they have been contaminated (this is somewhat similar to the “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound full of cure” adage).
Enjoy learning more about HACCP and it’s important role in food safety, and don’t forget to download the free 7 Tools of Quality download we’ve provided for you at the bottom of this article as well.
It’s always great to talk with someone who really knows their stuff, and when it comes to issues around maintenance, reliability, and maintainability, Dr. Klaus Blache of the UT-RMC really knows his stuff.
So with no further ado, please feel free to watch our short discussion explaining predictive maintenance and conditions-based maintenance (also known as PDM and CBM) below. If you’d rather read instead of watch and listen, we’ve created a transcript for you below the video.
The era of Advanced Manufacturing is coming soon. Industry 4.0. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
Great, right? Sounds good, huh?
Except, who’s going to do the work during this era (other than robots and computers)? What skills are they going to need?
There are going to be some skills that are specific to industries, and skills that are specific to sites, and skills that are specific to job roles. But there are also going to be some skills that are required in general. And those are going to be the skills we’ll discuss in this article.
If you’re looking to get a learning management system (LMS) to assist with workforce training at your organization, one question you might have is what kinds of training materials can you import into the LMS.
It’s probably obvious that you can import elearning courses, although even that answer isn’t quite that simple, as elearning courses come in different standards (or formats)–more on that below.
But you’ll also probably want to import things like video files, audio files, internet links, SharePoint links, PowerPoint presentations, PDFs, and more.
We’ll give you a quick rundown of the types of training materials you should be able to import into an LMS in this article, and we’ll give you a few additional tips about the importing process to boot. Plus, don’t forget to download the free LMS buyer’s guide at the bottom of this article.
