From the http://www.whaleprogram.org/ website:
“W.H.A.L.E.™ stands for “We Have A Little Emergency.” This car seat safety program was developed by Connie Day, a caregiver from Virginia. In the event of an automobile accident that incapacitates the adult driver and passengers, rescue personnel will have a difficult time identifying children riding in car safety seats. In some situations, these adults may not be related to the child passenger; therefore, conventional means of obtaining information will be useless. In these cases, W.H.A.L.E.™ can make a significant difference.”
The program consists of three parts:
1. An Information Label is attached to the back of the car seat, which provides important information about the child, such as name, date of birth, medical history and who to contact in case of emergency. The label is placed on the back of the car seat where it is not visible from outside the vehicle. This ensures the privacy of this personal information.
2. Two W.H.A.L.E™ Car Seat Stickers are attached to the sides of the seat.
3. Two W.H.A.L.E™ Vehicle Stickers are attached to the rear/side windows of the vehicle. Each of these stickers depicts the W.H.A.L.E™ logo and will alert emergency personnel that the occupants participate in the program.

Technology that we didn’t have even a couple of years ago suddenly seems impossible to live without. Case in point is the back-up cameras in most newer model trucks and SUVs.
In Argentina, where the highway infrastructure includes a lot of two lane highways, almost one person each hour is killed, most from trying to pass trucks and other vehicles where visibility is not good.
Samsung, realizing that there was a simple solution to the problem started rolling out the “Safety Truck”. What it does is to essentially put cameras on the front of the truck and project what it sees onto a large set of panels on the back of the truck so that the driver whose vision is blocked can actually see what is in front. A simple concept that could save thousands of lives.
Have a look at the YouTube video:
The result of a medical study in Sweden has found that “...exposure to mineral oil has a 30% increased risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis in later life.” That’s pretty significant!
A new whitepaper by ATG Intelligent Glove Solutions discusses the problem inherent in choosing the wrong glove when working with oils. The problem is that oil on the skin is absorbed into the body.
Storybuilder is a software tool developed for the Dutch Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment. It supports occupational and major accident analysis, investigation, inspection and identification of ways to improve safety. It is designed to “tell the story” when you enter data about the accident and helps you analyze the information.
Want to know how it works? Here’s a short video that explains how to use it.
You can download the software for free here.
