CDC Toolbox Talks 1.0
The CDC/NIOSH Toolbox Talks are designed to provideinformationrelated to workplace hazards and risks to workers atStone, Sand,Gravel, and Aggregates (SSGA) operations. Thisinformation can beused to increase workers’ health and safety. Thisseries of ToolboxTalks was created using data from two sources:interviews with SSGAmine workers about hazards and risks at theirworksite, andnonfatal and fatal injury data reported to the MineSafety andHealth Administration (MSHA) during the years 2009-2014.EachToolbox Talk includes a quote from a mine worker to demonstrateafirst person experience with a hazard or risk. This firstpersonexperience is then linked to MSHA injury data to show thattheseexperiences are consistent with the realities ofaccidents,injuries, and fatalities. Finally, several questions areincludedthat can be used to start a discussion about a specificToolboxTalk topic - for instance, questions for the slips and fallstopicare focused on having mine workers identify where slips andfallsare likely to occur at their mine site and ways mine workerscanprotect themselves from slip and fall injuries.

The Federal Select Agent Program Laboratory ExaminationTool(FSAP-LET) was designed to provide laboratory managersandbiosafety personnel with a tool to assist with performinginternallaboratory inspections. The tool contains checklists thatare basedon federal regulations and biosafety standards used byFederalSelect Agent Program (FSAP) inspectors. The checklists coveravariety of areas such as biosafety, security, training,andincident response. The tool allows the user to print a singlePDFdocument summarizing the recorded findings. The tool alsoallowsthe user to record any corrective actions taken in responsetoidentified findings. The resulting PDF document can bestoredlocally, saved to a facility’s computer, or emailed tosomeoneusing the default client of the system. FSAP-LET allows forsimilarchecklists to be used for multiple rooms or buildings, or atfuturepoints in time. FSAP-LET also allows for facility informationto besaved so that it does not have to be input each time achecklist isused. However, the information can be edited as needed.All data inthe system, including findings, comments and correctiveactions,are encrypted so that it is only available to the user.Thesoftware will not run on a device that does not have securityofsome type (e.g., biometrics, password/phrase). While the toolisintended to assist laboratories in meeting federal regulationsandbiosafety standards, it is not all-inclusive. The responsibilitytofully adhere to applicable federal regulations remains withtheentity using the tool. Any available updates to theapplicationwill be communicated to users.
