[OSHA lifting equipment safety]

Briggs Equipment has helped Williams Shipping to improve cargo handling capabilities in two key areas of its business Following a meeting at Multimodal in 2016, Williams Shipping purchased a refurbished 45 tonne Hyster reachstacker for its logistics business. The company then upgraded the fleet at subsidiary company Willbox by replacing a heavy duty forklift truck with a new 10 tonne Hyster H10XM-6. The overall equipment value is 270,000 griphoists and Briggs is providing full maintenance support for both machines. Founded in 1894, Williams Shipping provides a broad range of services, including vessel charter, port services, transport and logistics, marine lubricants distribution and container hire and sales. In Southampton, although well located to move flat rack containers from lorries on to ships, Williams Shipping did not have the lifting capacity to deliver this kind of cargo handling service. As part of the company's strategic business expansion, Briggs was able to provide a quality, LOLER-certified low hours reachstacker that met key budget requirements. With the capacity to handle 10 tonnes and lift loads to 7 metres, the Hyster forklift is particularly suited to ports and industrial applications with high duty cycles and extreme conditions. Operating in a small yard and working under low doorways, this compact machine is helping Williams Shipping's subsidiary company Willbox to increase container throughput. Willbox operates 18 regional depots across the UK and is one of the country's leading providers of containers for hire and sale. Serving a wide range of domestic and commercial uses, including onsite storage and site accommodation, its versatile container types include offshore, flat pack and ISO tanks, as well as refrigerated containers.

But, investigators say, the fact that people younger than 55 are still dying of a disease linked to asbestos means that workers are still being exposed to dangerous levels of asbestos despite federal regulations. One source is asbestos that was originally installed years ago, and gets stirred up during a building renovation or a demolition project. People exposed in this way are sometimes referred to as the "third wave" of people with asbestos disease, as we have reported . The first two waves were asbestos miners and manufacturers, and then tradesmen, such as pipe fitters or shipbuilders. For example, the CDC researchers note that although there appears to be a general decline in asbestos on worksites between 1979 and 2003, "20 percent of air samples collected in the construction industry in 2003 for compliance purposes exceeded the OSHA permissible exposure limit [for asbestos]." And asbestos is still being used in new products. A report on the findings published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association, notes "Asbestos production stopped in the United States in 2002, but it is imported into the country to produce chemicals used in manufacturing common items such as soap, fertilizers, and alkaline batteries." More than 350 metric tons of the mineral were used in 2015 in the U.S., according to the U.S. Geological Survey . The CDC analysis also found that mesothelioma deaths were not evenly distributed across the country, despite the fact that the material is regulated at the federal level. It is difficult to say why some states seem to have higher rates of death associated with asbestos.
