Known for their high technical quality and market relevancy, ASTM International standards have an important role in the information infrastructure that guides design, manufacturing and trade in the global economy. ASTM International, originally known as the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), was formed over a century ago, when a forward-thinking group of engineers and scientists got together to address frequent rail breaks in the burgeoning railroad industry. Their work led to standardization on the steel used in rail construction, ultimately improving railroad safety for the public. As the century progressed and new industrial, governmental and environmental developments created new standardization requirements, ASTM answered the call with consensus standards that have made products and services safer, better and more cost-effective. The proud tradition and forward vision that started in 1898 is still the hallmark of ASTM International. Today, ASTM continues to play a leadership role in addressing the standardization needs of the global marketplace. Known for its best in class practices for standards development and delivery, ASTM is at the forefront in the use of innovative technology to help its members do standards development work, while also increasing the accessibility of ASTM International standards to the world. ASTM continues to be the standards forum of choice of a diverse range of industries that come together under the ASTM umbrella to solve standardization challenges. In recent years, stakeholders involved in issues ranging from safety in recreational aviation, to fiber optic cable installations in underground utilities, to homeland security, have come together under ASTM to set consensus standards for their industries. Standards developed at ASTM are the work of over 30,000 ASTM members. These technical experts represent producers, users, consumers, government and academia from over 100 countries. Participation in ASTM International is open to all with a material interest, anywhere in the world.

Description: MotionNET.com is the technical web portal designed by a team of experienced electronic and mechanical design engineers to help fellow engineers design and develop new products. Our goal is to provide engineers and buyers with the most efficient, direct and practical sources available, including products, manufacturers, distributors, standards and reference information. Along with the rest of the engineering community, each time we designed a product, automated a production process or integrated a system, significant time was spent trying to find the resources needed to do the job. We often used Internet search engines. Results often included potato chips and wood chips mixed with semiconductor chips. We found ourselves wishing there was an online database tailored for design engineers. We envisioned an online categorized database designed specifically for the electronic and mechanical engineering community. This database would allow you to select the desired type of product and give you the ability to click to and browse the specific product pages within each company's website. We also wanted quick access to frequently used references (such as an ASCII Code Table, trademark search, dictionary for spell checking, etc.). After an exhaustive search for such an Internet resource, we created MotionNET.com. It provides free access without requiring users to register. In addition to submitting MotionNET.com to numerous search engines across the Internet, we also registered thousands of product type domain names such as servomotors.com, actuators.net and framegrabbers.com. This allowed searchers to find multiple sources for such products. Our next step was to gather a team of people to assemble this information. We visited thousands of websites and created a relational database that included: Company category (distributor, manufacturer, etc.); Links and categories for each product type; Location of products page; List of distributors; Line card of manufactures; Contact information, including phone and fax numbers and email addresses.

Description: Founded in 1989, the Aseptic Packaging Council (APC) is a trade association that represents the major U.S. manufacturers of aseptic cartons-Tetra Pak Inc.of Chicago and SIG Combibloc Inc. of Columbus, Ohio. Our primary mission is to inform the American public about the product benefits and environmental attributes of aseptic packaging. As part of that charge, we work closely with communities nationwide to encourage the inclusion of milk cartons and aseptic packages (commonly called drink boxes) in their recycling programs. The aseptic package, long a staple in European cupboards, is still little understood in the United States. But that's changing. In 1996, the aseptic carton won the Presidential Award for Sustainable Development, the only package ever to receive this coveted environmental prize. At a White House ceremony, Vice President Al Gore recognized the aseptic package for its earth-smart profile and commended the aseptic packaging industry for demonstrating extended responsibility through a product's life cycle and an outstanding contribution to a sustainable future. We invite you to learn more about this remarkable, lightweight, energy-efficient example of minimal packaging that retains flavor and nutrients and allows traditionally perishable products (like real milk) to stay unrefrigerated and shelf-stable for up to six months. It's been called the packaging of the future; to learn why, explore the categories listed on the left.

Description: Since its discovery more than 5,000 years ago, asphalt has proved to be one of nature's most useful – and abundant – materials. Though you may never have considered it, asphalt (a petroleum byproduct), is a naturally occurring part of the environment. (And now thanks to advances in technology, asphalt roofing products are as friendly to the environment as they are to the buildings they protect.) No stranger to the building industry itself, asphalt has been used successfully as an excellent natural preservative, as well as an outstanding waterproofing and adhesive agent for centuries. For the past 150 years, in fact, asphalt has proved the most popular roofing material in North America. And deservedly so!

Description: AWCI is highly regarded by members and industry as providing valuable technical and product information, education and training, industry contacts and fraternity essential to operating a successful business, and is the principal organization advocating the interests of contractors, suppliers and manufacturers in the wall and ceiling industries. Twenty-six lathing and plastering contractors assembled March 11, 1918, to form the Contracting Plasterers International Association. The founders of this new organization planned for the CPIA to perform two important functions: to establish friendly and cooperative interests among the members and to provide service to the building public. As time passed, the CPIA would change its name four times to mirror a change in the industry or in the association's membership. The first name change occurred in 1955. In an effort to oppose any effort to separate the lathing from the plastering trade, the new name became the Contracting Plasterers' and Lathers' International Association. In 1969, when the volume of drywall/acoustical tile being contracted by CPLIA members had increased significantly, the association changed its name to the international association of the Wall & Ceiling Contractors. After a successful merger with the Gypsum Drywall Contractors International, iaWCC's name was changed to a combination of the two merging organizations, iaWCC/GDCI. The two associations consolidated July 1, 1976. Finally, after the merger had settled, the name was changed to its present form, The Association of the Wall and Ceiling Industries—International.Today, more than 75 years since its founding, AWCI continues to provide benefits for acoustical, ceiling, drywall, EIFS, fireproofing, insulation, plaster, steel framing and stucco contractors, suppliers and distributors, manufacturers and those in allied trades.

As part of this endeavor, the organization collects statistical data to provide the annual recycling rate of lead-acid batteries. BCI also developed model battery recycling legislation at both the state and federal levels in the U.S., as a way to efficiently recover valuable resources and keep recyclable materials out of the waste stream. The model has been adopted by legislatures in 37 states across the country. The BCI battery recycling model prohibits lead-acid batteries from being incinerated or dumped in landfills, and discourages indiscriminate disposal of spent lead-acid batteries. It includes a mandatory take-back system imposed at the point of purchase, requiring consumers either to turn in a spent battery at the purchase of a new battery or pay a fee in lieu of the trade-in. For 1995-1999, the recycling rate is 93.3%.

First, we have expanded the strategic focus of the organization to include the critical and fundamental dimensions of our work--brand design and strategy. To signal this redirection, we have changed the name of our organization to the Brand Design Association. As the Brand Design Association, we will focus our member activities on those which will strengthen the sense of community among those of us working in the field; provide a venue to communicate the expertise of our field; and, promote excellence in our profession by being a powerful voice about the fundamental value of brand design as a strategic problem solving discipline. To deepen our institutional stability, we have entered into a strategic alliance with the AIGA, the largest and oldest professional association of graphic designers. Every Brand Design Association member will also be a member of the AIGA with all of its benefits. Through this alliance, we will gain the institutional strength and expertise in serving the design community afforded by the AIGA, while freeing the Brand Design Association to focus on what we believe is most important--programming about brand and package design.

Name: Compressed Air Challenge
Web site: Compressed Air Challenge
email: Info@compressedairchallenge.org
Description: Compressed air is not typically viewed as a cost of production—but it is anything but “free.” The generation of compressed air requires a huge amount of energy—and a piecemeal approach to building a compressed air system serves to worsen the problem through leaks, mismatched supply/demand, and inappropriate uses. The result is unreliability, energy waste, reduced productivity, and higher operating costs. Paying attention to your compressed air system can lead to a number of benefits. Compressed air is a utility that is generated in-house. That means that you have more control over it than any other utility. By learning more about efficient use of compressed air systems, you can improve efficiency, reduce costs, and increase productivity and reliability. This can lead to improved competitiveness, less downtime, and greater return on investment. The mission of the Compressed Air Challenge (CAC) is to develop and provide resources that educate industry on the opportunities to increase net profits through compressed air system optimization. The CAC has already developed a series of training sessions to help you learn more about the fundamentals of compressed air systems. A sourcebook and fact sheets are also available.

Abbreviation: ntma
Web site: Connecticut Tooling & Machining Association
email: matt@ntma.org
Description: The National Tooling and Machining Association is a trade organization representing the precision custom manufacturing industry throughout the United States. Organized in 1943, the Association is incorporated under the state laws of Ohio. The Association functions in the basic manner of most national trade associations. Annually, the Association elects four non-salaried officers from among its membership; i.e., a chairman, two vice chairmen, and a secretary-treasurer. Principally, these officers are owners or top management personnel within member companies. None of these elected officers is active on a day-to-day basis in the Association; however, it is their function to provide basic direction and establishment of policies and priorities for the full-time salaried staff. The Association's daily staff activities are directed by the President and Chief Operating Officer, who is a full-time salaried employee. Under the executive's direction is a salaried staff numbering approximately 29 employees. The bulk of this staff operates from the main office in Fort Washington, Maryland. There are, however, three full-time employees located in different areas of the United States where they maintain permanent residence. These employees are responsible for membership enrollment and liaison work. The Association's major sources of revenue are derived through membership dues and the sale of various publications (principally textbooks and training materials). The Association's elected Board of Trustees is responsible for all major policy decisions. There are currently 50 trustees, with each trustee representing a specific geographic segment of the membership. Each trustee is elected by the membership from that geographic area to serve as an elected representative. Current officers and the five immediate past Chairmen serve as ex-officio trustees. The Board meets formally three times per year at national meetings to review Association activities and to implement new policy decisions as required. While the Board passes on major policy decisions, the recommendations resulting in such action are formulated by and emanate from the Association's various teams. Each team has a specific purpose and goal and is composed of owners and key management people from the various member companies. Each of the teams meets in formal session at the Association's regularly scheduled national meetings. In addition, interim meetings are scheduled from time to time at the team leader's direction. Among the most important of these Association teams is the Executive Team, empowered to act on behalf of the Board of Trustees between the latter's meetings or when a full Board meeting is not deemed practical. The Executive Team is comprised of the immediate past chairman of the Association as well as the four current Association officers. Today the Association's members number approximately 2,700 precision custom manufacturers located throughout the United States. From 1943 to 1964, the Association maintained its principal office in Cleveland, Ohio. During the latter year, the Association's headquarters office was moved to leased quarters at 1411 K Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. In 1971, a plot of land was acquired in Fort Washington, Maryland (9300 Livingston Road) and construction was begun. The Association took occupancy of its new quarters on June 24, 1972. A three-story addition to this building was completed in mid-1982.

Name: Electric Powers Supply Association
Abbreviation: EPSA
Web site: Electric Powers Supply Association
Description: EPSA is the national trade association representing competitive power suppliers, including generators and marketers. These suppliers, who account for nearly 40 percent of the installed generating capacity in the United States, provide reliable and competitively priced electricity from environmentally responsible facilities serving global power markets. EPSA seeks to bring the benefits of competition to all power customers. Formed as a result of a merger between the National Independent Energy Producers and the Electric Generation Association, EPSA combines the strengths and policy successes of those two prominent organizations on behalf of the competitive power supply industry. EPSA’s formation has given the competitive power supply industry the ability to speak with a single, unified voice at the national level. As the debate continues in the U.S. Congress, federal regulatory agencies, and state capitals around the country, EPSA advocates policies and positions that allow its member companies to compete aggressively for the privilege of serving electricity consumers. EPSA is confident that, as it has in other industries, such competition will bring lower prices, and more and better services for electricity customers. As such, the association will continue to play a constructive role in the intensifying congressional and regulatory debate about how to create efficient national wholesale power markets. Working in concert with the industry’s state and regional associations, EPSA also participates in precedent-setting regulatory and legislative proceedings in the states. EPSA members include many of the premier companies involved in the generation and marketing of electricity. Today’s power suppliers face complex technological, environmental, and risk management challenges. EPSA members are responsible for some of the most innovative solutions to these challenges. Those solutions have resulted in: more efficient generating technologies that have driven down the cost of producing electricity; cost-effective environmental solutions that have resulted in significantly cleaner air and water; innovations in power plant management and maintenance that have lowered operating costs without compromising reliability; cost-saving transactions among power marketers that move electricity to where it is most needed; and new comprehensive risk management strategies that result in more competitively priced power. The competitive power supply industry’s existing accomplishments foreshadow the possibility of even greater efficiencies and savings in a fully competitive market. EPSA’s goal is to bring the cost-saving benefits and innovative services its members offer to all consumers.

email: office@ela.org.uk
Description: In January 1997 a number of British laser companies attended a meeting with the National Radiological Protection Board. This meeting discussed and addressed various UK and European guidelines on the use of entertainment laser systems and it became apparent that the industry needed to address certain issues. To address these issues the association ‘BELA’ [British Entertainment Laser Association] was formed and a number of strategic goals were drawn up. Subsequently it became apparent that other countries were facing similar issues and indeed interest was shown from overseas companies. It was therefore decided that a more international approach was needed and the association was re-named ‘ELA’ [Entertainment Laser Association]. It is anticipated, long term, that individual countries will raise local sub committees and have a single representative to the main committee. It is not the intention of ELA to compete with ILDA but to compliment and indeed form association between both bodies. We believe ELA will be well placed to initially give a European view to the international laser display industry.

Web site: Flexible Intermediate Bulk Container Association
email: info@fibca.com
Description: Flexible intermediate bulk containers (FIBCs), also known as big bags, bulk bags, and bulk sacks, were first manufactured in the late 1950s or early 1960s.  There is some controversy as to where the first FIBCs were made; however, it is known that FIBCs were made in the United States, Europe, and Japan during the time period mentioned above.  The first FIBCs were constructed with heavy-duty PVC-coated nylon or polyester where the cut sheets are welded together to form the FIBC.  These FIBCs were made with integrated lift slings around the container, or attached to a specially made pallet, or a metal lifting device that the container sat on.  The handling devices allowed the container to be filled from the top and discharged from the bottom. The initial cost of these heavy-duty PVC containers is high; therefore, they are designed to be reused many times in a closed-circuit system, where problems of control logistics, prevention of contamination, cleaning, and liability for loss or damage can be agreed on by the shipper and receiver of the product. Flexible intermediate bulk containers manufactured with polyolefin fabrics were experimented with in England, Japan, Canada, and the United States all at about the same time in the late 1960s to the early 1970s.  It was the development of these high-strength light weight fabrics (i.e., polypropylene) that spurred the growth of the flexible intermediate bulk bags that are universally used today.

Description: Hardwoods are deciduous trees that have broad leaves, produce a fruit or nut and generally go dormant in the winter. America’s forests grow hundreds of varieties of hardwood trees that thrive in this country’s temperate climates. These varieties, or species, include oak, ash, cherry, maple and poplar. Softwoods are conifers, evergreen and cone-bearing trees. Widely available U.S. softwoods include cedar, fir, hemlock, pine, redwood and spruce. In a home, softwoods primarily are used as structural lumber such as 2x4s and 2x6s, with limited decorative applications. All the commercially available U.S. hardwoods are crafted into furniture, cabinetry, woodwork and built-ins. It’s simply a matter of taste, preference and availability. Certain hardwood species aren’t recommended for flooring because they’re not hard enough to withstand heavy wear and tear

Abbreviation: HCPC
Web site: Healthcare Compliance Packaging Council
Description: The Healthcare Compliance Packaging Council (HCPC) is a not-for-profit trade association that was established in 1990 to promote the many benefits of unit dose blister and strip packaging -- especially its ability to be designed in compliance-prompting formats that help people take their medications properly. Pharmaceutical noncompliance is a tremendous problem in the United States that drains an estimated $100 billion from our national economy every year, and is blamed for the deaths of over 125,000 Americans annually (342 people every day).  Ten percent of all hospital admissions are the result of pharmaceutical noncompliance, and 23 percent of all nursing home admissions are due to people's inability to take their medications as prescribed. Better packaging can help!  Unit dose blister and strip packaging can be designed in compliance-enhancing formats that remind people whether they have taken their medications.  Birth control pills, certain antibiotics, hormone replacement therapies, and steroids are already being dispensed in unit dose packaging that has proven highly effective in helping people manage their pharmaceutical regimens.  The HCPC strongly believes that if more products were packaged in a unit dose format, the noncompliance problem would be greatly reduced. While insurance companies and managed care organizations bear the greatest economic burden from pharmaceutical noncompliance, everyone must also pay a share in the form of higher taxes, premiums, and lost productivity. That is why the HCPC's goal is to inform and educate consumers, health professionals and policy makers about the role that unit dose packaging can play in improving pharmaceutical compliance.  We are working for the day that consumers will have a choice when they get their prescriptions filled -- either the standard cap and vial format that does nothing to help them manage their medications, or a compliance-style, unit dose package that will help ensure that they actually take the medication as it has been prescribed.

Membership has now expanded to include any company involved in furnishing the home, anywhere in the country, in any segment of the industry.

Name: Industrial Ventilation Guidelines
Web site: Industrial Ventilation Guidelines
Description: Industrial ventilation is a method of controlling worker exposure to airborne toxic chemicals or flammable vapors by exhausting contaminated air away from the work area and replacing it with clean air. It is one alternative to control employee exposure to air contaminants in the workplace. Other alternatives include process changes, work practice changes, substitution with less toxic chemicals, or elimination of the use of toxic chemicals.  Industrial ventilation is typically used to remove welding fumes, solvent vapors, oil mists or dusts from a work location and exhaust these contaminants outdoors. The design and troubleshooting of industrial ventilation systems should be handled by a qualified ventilation engineer or firms specializing in this field. However, a basic knowledge of how exhaust ventilation systems work and some basic troubleshooting tips is included in this guideline.

Description: The Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) is a non-profit organization chartered with raising the level of competitiveness, performance, and profitability of Utah’s manufacturers. Small and mid-sized manufacturers account for more than half of U.S. production. However, private consulting firms tend to serve large companies because of simple economics. As a result, smaller companies are left to their own devices to develop strategies, access the latest technologies, and implement the newest management & manufacturing practices. The MEP leverages state and federal support, along with a network of Utah-based public and private resources to assist in providing services to manufacturers. Fundamental to our approach is the focus on our clients’ bottom line impacts. In April 2002, the American Society for Training and Development completed an economic impact study for MEP Utah. The study evaluated the impact of 40 recent projects. The results showed that the MEP Utah could be credited with creating or retaining 1,055 jobs, retaining or increasing sales by $122 million, and $474 million in industrial output. The objective of the MEP is to make a bottom-line impact on your business. We accomplish this by; identifying the 5-10 most important things your organization should be doing, helping your management team turn this task list into a prioritized Strategic Activity List©, managing your Activity List, and then helping overcome barriers to implementation.

Description: Most film and TV scores, as well as popular recorded music is written and performed using electronic keyboards and other MIDI-equipped musical instruments. (Thanks to advances in digital sampling and synthesis technologies, the orchestra playing behind that big-screen block buster is more likely to be the product of MIDI than a real orchestra with dozens of acoustic instruments.) MIDI is also easy to find in the world of personal computing. If your computer has a sound card, it most likely also has the ability to play MIDI files (using a built-in hardware or software synthesizer that responds to MIDI messages), and with an adapter can also be connected directly to other MIDI-equipped products, allowing you to take advantage of  various computer programs that can help you learn, play, create and enjoy music. MIDI also has some other interesting and popular uses. For example, MIDI Show Control is a command and control language used with rides at major theme parks and events at Las Vegas casinos, and MIDI Machine Control is used in recording studios to synchronize and remotely control recording equipment. Recently MIDI has begun to be used to generate ring tones in mobile phones. MIDI ring tones sound far better because they are polyphonic (play more than one note at one time) and because they use music synthesizers which produce a wider variety of sounds than possible before. There are over 300 companies around the world making products that support MIDI -- well known companies such as Apple and Microsoft, Roland and Yamaha, Nokia and Sony/Ericsson, among others.

Two or more sections, 12 to 16 feet wide and up to 60 feet long are combined to create the finished building. Modules may be stacked to make two or three story single family homes, apartments or office buildings. Modular homes are generally shipped within a 300 mile radius of the manufacturing facility. The average time for completing a modular home is 2 to 4 weeks. Home buyers can realize considerable savings by choosing a home constructed of modular components over a traditional site-built house. Modular housing meets the design and budget needs for both affordable housing and high-end luxury housing. In 1996, approximately 37,000 housing units were constructed using the modular system. Forecasters see the modular housing industry continuing to increase its market share.

NAEM, formerly the National Association for Environmental Management, is a dynamic and supportive organization. It’s membership consists of in-house Environmental and EH&S managers (vice presidents, directors, managers, supervisory engineers, etc) in organizations nationwide who value life-long learning, continuous education, and professional networking. The Association was created in 1990 by a small group of environmental managers who realized there was no entity in existence for environmental managers from a wide range of industries to exchange ideas and gain insight and knowledge from each other. Today, NAEM is an international organization with more than 1,000 members. NAEM programs and initiatives focus on the management issues inherent to the environmental and/or EHS function of a regulated entity (business and service operations, governmental and municipal, and non-profit entities). Our members are kept up-to-date with the latest EHS management trends, information and techniques to advance their personal and professional objectives. While general membership is exclusive to “in-house” managers, the NAEM Affiliates Council offers ES&H service providers the same benefits of membership. The Council is composed of companies that provide services and products to corporate, institutional and governmental organizations.

Description: Consolidation and the constant evolution of the industry over the last 50 years have made the elevator community a relatively small and close-knit group. This means that being well known and respected by all members of the elevator industry has long been a key to doing business. An NAEC membership is an excellent vehicle for fostering the relationships you need, and for promoting trade between suppliers, contractors and customers from around the world. From the yearly convention, to quarterly conferences, monthly newsletters and on to the development of our new website; we have worked hard to create an environment that promotes discussions, dialogue, and member participation. But NAEC is important for more than building contacts. It is also a forum for the discussion of technical issues, and for promoting awareness of the latest standards. In addition to this, it is a resource center that members can use to find answers to crucial questions, or share their expertise with others. In redeveloping this website, we have added exciting new features that will allow our members to more actively exchange vital information with each other. Over the next few months, you can expect several more new features to come online; each of which has been carefully thought-out and designed to help NAEC members do business more effectively with the tools of the information age. The elevator industry continues to progress rapidly, both in size and in complexity. As it does, NAEC plans to stay in touch with the latest in technical advances, and to continually find innovative new ways to inform our members of these changes. The Internet has changed the way we all do business. NAEC will continue to expand our presence on the web to benefit our members in ways that cannot yet be foreseen

email: gbrent@nccco.org
Description: NCCCO was formed in January 1995 as a not-for-profit organization to develop effective performance standards for safe crane operation to assist all segments of general industry and construction. By providing a thorough, independent assessment of operator knowledge and skills, NCCCO aims to enhance lifting equipment safety, reduce workplace risk, improve performance records, stimulate training, and give due recognition to the professional skill of crane operation. The establishment of NCCCO was the culmination of almost 10 years continuous work by representatives of all industries that use cranes. In essence, the NCCCO program was developed by industry for industry, and continues to be supported by it. This diversity continues to be reflected through NCCCO's Commissioners and Board of Directors who represent such groups as: contractors, labor unions, rental firms, owners, government, regulatory and standards-setting agencies, steel erectors, manufacturers, equipment distributors, construction firms, training consultants, and insurance companies. The wealth of crane knowledge these experts have brought to this effort has been coupled with the psychometric expertise of one of the nation's most prestigious credentialing organizations, International Assessment Institute (IAI). IAI played a crucial role in the development of the NCCCO program and continues to assist in the administration and further development of NCCCO written and practical examinations. This combination of crane-related experience and exam development knowledge has been supplemented with input from the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) as well as the ANSI/ASME committees that developed and revise the B30 crane standard. The result is a sound, valid and effective test of an operator's proficiency.

email: info@esfi.org
Description: Welcome to the website of the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI). Many of you know us by our former moniker, the National Electrical Safety Foundation. We recently changed our name to better reflect our growing reach, the support we receive from international organizations, and the global relevance of what we preach—that of all the hazards we face day-to-day, electricity remains uniquely unforgiving; the smallest mistake can be fatal. We are not a membership organization. We do not lobby or write standards. The ESFI mission is to reduce electrically related deaths and injuries through vigilant public education keeping electrical safety top of mind, and to give the general public, school children and the workforce tips and tools to use to prevent deadly and destructive electrical accidents. Why is ESFI necessary? Because people are getting killed and injured through preventable electrical accidents. As technology advances in quantum leaps, so too does our dependence on electricity. Unfortunately, as safety is better engineered into our electrical products, our awareness of sound electrical safety practices decreases; we grow comfortable in the belief that manufacturers have made their products failsafe, and we take our safety for granted. But what about factors beyond a manufacturer's control? What about normal wear and tear that deteriorates a product's casing and insulation? What about weather and rough use that undermine safety mechanisms? What about misuse, faulty installation, and after-market alterations that defeat a manufacturers best efforts at providing a safe and affordable product? What about counterfeit products that enter our market, even with counterfeit safety testing certifications? I hope you feel free to communicate with us by phone, fax, mail and e-mail. Ask questions, raise issues, relate stories of both success and failure in the effort to keep people electrically safe. Most of all, let us know how ESFI can be of better help. I hope you find the material contained here informational and useful. More to the point, I hope you use it to create a more electrically safe environment at home, school and work. We pledge to you to continue to develop and improve this site and our programs and publications to make them ever more effective.

Description: The National Petroleum Council (NPC), a federally chartered and privately funded advisory committee, was established by the Secretary of the Interior in 1946 at the request of President Harry S. Truman. In 1977, the U.S. Department of Energy was established and the NPC's functions were transferred to the new Department. The purpose of the NPC is solely to represent the views of the oil and natural gas industries in advising, informing, and making recommendations to the Secretary of Energy with respect to any matter relating to oil and natural gas, or to the oil and gas industries submitted to it or approved by the Secretary. The NPC does not concern itself with trade practices, nor does it engage in any of the usual trade association activities. The NPC is chartered by the Secretary of Energy, under the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act of 1972. The Council membership of approximately 175 persons is selected and appointed by the Secretary of Energy. Individual members serve without compensation as representatives of their industry or associated interests as a whole, not as representatives of their particular companies or affiliations. In selecting the membership, special attention is given by the Secretary to assure a well-balanced representation from all segments of the oil and gas industries, all sections of the country, and from large and small companies. The Council also has members with interests outside of oil or gas operations, including representatives from academic, financial, research, Native American, and public interest organizations and institutions. The advice of the NPC is transmitted to the Secretary in the form of reports approved by the Council and is rendered to the government as a public service. The cost of providing this service is borne by voluntary contributions from the Council members. The NPC conducts studies in response to specific requests originating from or approved by the Secretary of Energy. The Council does, however, reserve the right to decline to undertake any study requested of it by the Secretary, if it determines the subject matter to be inappropriate for Council consideration.  At the first meeting in each calendar year, the Council elects a Chair and Vice Chair, the chairs and members of the Agenda and the Appointment Committees, and the at-large members of the Cochairs' Coordinating Committee. The function of the Agenda Committee is to review and make recommendations to the Council regarding requests from the Secretary of Energy for advice and information on specific subjects. The Appointment Committee advises the Chair of the Council in designating members of a committee to be responsible for developing and presenting a particular study to the Council for its consideration. Under the leadership of the NPC Chair and the Secretary of Energy, the Cochairs' Coordinating Committee provides a flexible mechanism through which the leadership of the Council and the Department can jointly review the progress of ongoing studies and the industry resources allocated to them, as well as identify issues for possible future consideration by the Council.

Abbreviation: NTMA
Web site: National Tooling & Machining Association
email: marj@ntma.org
Description: The NTMA is the national representative of the custom precision manufacturing industry in the United States. Many NTMA members are small businesses, privately owned and operated, yet the industry generates sales in excess of $40 billion a year. Our over 2500 members design and manufacture special tools, dies, jigs, fixtures, gages, special machines, and precision machined parts. Some firms specialize in experimental research and development work. The tooling and machining industry is critical to our country's economic health as it makes possible the existence of virtually every other manufacturing industry. Tooling is, in its simplest sense, the means of production. Special tooling, such as dies and molds, is custom designed and made to manufacture specific products, generally in quantity, and to desired levels of uniformity, accuracy, interchangeability, and quality. Machining involves the use of a wide variety of machine tools to cut or form material, usually metal, to precise shapes and dimensions. NTMA member companies use the full range of machine tools and related equipment, ranging from small automatic lathes for miniature parts, to enormous boring mills. The industry is probably the most technologically-advanced of all small manufacturing activities, and enjoys widespread deployment of computer-numerically-controlled (CNC) machines and other computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) techniques. Our industry supplies the necessary precision tooling and machining for such vital industries as defense, automotive, aerospace, appliance, business machines, electronics, agricultural implements, ordnance, transportation, environmental, construction equipment, nuclear, and many more. In point of fact, nearly every manufacturer does business at one time or another with the contract tooling and machining industry.

email: marj@ntma.org
Description: The National Tooling and Machining Association is a trade organization representing the precision custom manufacturing industry throughout the United States. Organized in 1943, the Association is incorporated under the state laws of Ohio. The Association functions in the basic manner of most national trade associations. Annually, the Association elects four non-salaried officers from among its membership; i.e., a chairman, two vice chairmen, and a secretary-treasurer. Principally, these officers are owners or top management personnel within member companies. None of these elected officers is active on a day-to-day basis in the Association; however, it is their function to provide basic direction and establishment of policies and priorities for the full-time salaried staff. The Association's daily staff activities are directed by the President and Chief Operating Officer, who is a full-time salaried employee. Under the executive's direction is a salaried staff numbering approximately 29 employees. The bulk of this staff operates from the main office in Fort Washington, Maryland. There are, however, three full-time employees located in different areas of the United States where they maintain permanent residence. These employees are responsible for membership enrollment and liaison work. The Association's major sources of revenue are derived through membership dues and the sale of various publications (principally textbooks and training materials). The Association's elected Board of Trustees is responsible for all major policy decisions. There are currently 50 trustees, with each trustee representing a specific geographic segment of the membership. Each trustee is elected by the membership from that geographic area to serve as an elected representative. Current officers and the five immediate past Chairmen serve as ex-officio trustees. The Board meets formally three times per year at national meetings to review Association activities and to implement new policy decisions as required. While the Board passes on major policy decisions, the recommendations resulting in such action are formulated by and emanate from the Association's various teams. Each team has a specific purpose and goal and is composed of owners and key management people from the various member companies. Each of the teams meets in formal session at the Association's regularly scheduled national meetings. In addition, interim meetings are scheduled from time to time at the team leader's direction. Among the most important of these Association teams is the Executive Team, empowered to act on behalf of the Board of Trustees between the latter's meetings or when a full Board meeting is not deemed practical. The Executive Team is comprised of the immediate past chairman of the Association as well as the four current Association officers. Today the Association's members number approximately 2,700 precision custom manufacturers located throughout the United States. From 1943 to 1964, the Association maintained its principal office in Cleveland, Ohio. During the latter year, the Association's headquarters office was moved to leased quarters at 1411 K Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. In 1971, a plot of land was acquired in Fort Washington, Maryland (9300 Livingston Road) and construction was begun. The Association took occupancy of its new quarters on June 24, 1972. A three-story addition to this building was completed in mid-1982.

Description: The Registrar Accreditation Board (RAB) was established in 1989 by the American Society for Quality. Its original mission was to provide accreditation services for ISO 9000 Quality Management Systems (QMS) registrars. The new organization was structured as an independent legal entity. RAB is governed and operated independently from ASQ. When RAB was first created, it immediately sought to strengthen the U.S. system for registrar accreditation by pursuing a formal relationship with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). In 1991, ANSI and RAB joined forces to establish the American National Accreditation Program for Registrars of Quality Systems. The next year RAB introduced QMS course provider accreditation and auditor certification programs that were separate from the joint program with ANSI. Then in 1996, with the release of new ISO 14000 Environmental Management Systems (EMS) standards, the ANSI-RAB National Accreditation Program (NAP) was formed, replacing the original joint program. The ANSI-RAB NAP covers the accreditation of QMS and EMS registrars. Separate from the ANSI-RAB NAP are certification programs for EMS auditors and QMS auditors and accreditation programs for course providers offering QMS and EMS auditor training courses operated solely by RAB. RAB, headquartered in Milwaukee, WI, is a not-for-profit organization that is financially self-supported and governed by a 16-member board of directors. Members of the board represent both quality and environmental stakeholders and include technical experts, business executives, industry representatives, and employees of registrar organizations. RAB policy is established by the RAB board of directors and, for those programs operated with ANSI, by a Joint Oversight Board populated equally by representatives of each organization. RAB exists to serve the conformity assessment needs of business and industry, registrars, course providers and individual auditors. Stay with us - this site has a lot more information for you.

Description: The Society for MFPT was organized in 1967 under the leadership and sponsorship of the Office of Naval Research as the Mechanical Failures Prevention Group (MFPG).  Charter sponsors also included several other naval organizations, the Atomic Energy Commission, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and several industrial organizations.  The MFPG was formed primarily as a mechanism for effective interchange of technical information among segments of the scientific and engineering communities in order to gain a better understanding of the processes of mechanical failures. The anticipated result was to reduce the incidence of mechanical failures by improving design methodology, to devise methods of accurately predicting mechanical failures and to apply the increased knowledge of the field to current problems.  Improved reliability, greater safety and economic savings were among the obvious goals to be achieved through a better understanding of mechanical failures.  The original objectives continue to form the basis for the activities of the current MFPT Society Technical Committees.  In this way the MFPT Society acts as a focal point for technological developments that contribute to mechanical failure reduction or prevention.

Name: The Masonry Heater Association
Abbreviation: MHA
Web site: The Masonry Heater Association
email: bmarois@sovernet.com
Description: The main thing that distinguishes a masonry heater is the ability to store a large amount of heat. This means that you can rapidly burn a large charge of wood without overheating your house. The heat is stored in the masonry thermal mass, and then slowly radiates into your house for the next 18 to 24 hours. If you burn wood fairly rapidly, it is a clean fuel. If you try to burn it too slowly, the fire will change from flaming to smoldering combustion. The burning process is incomplete and produces tars. Atmospheric pollution increases dramatically. This is important if you are planning an energy-efficient house. The average energy demand of your house will be quite low. For most of the time, it may require only 1 to 2 kW of heat. For most conventional woodstoves, this is below their “critical burn rate”, or the point where they start to smolder. Masonry heaters fill the bill perfectly. If you need even a very small amount of heat, such as between seasons when you simply want to take off the chill, you simply burn a smaller fuel charge–yet you still burn it quickly. The large surface is never too hot to touch. You have a premium radiant heating system with a comfort level that simply cannot be equaled by convection or forced air systems.

Name: U.S. Chemical Safety Board
Abbreviation: CSB
Web site: U.S. Chemical Safety Board
email: info@csb.gov
Description: The CSB is not a regulatory agency like the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) or the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Indeed, the Congress designed the CSB to be independent of those agencies so that its investigations might, where appropriate, review the effectiveness of regulations and regulatory enforcement. The CSB determines the causes of accidents but does not issue fines or penalties. The immediate causes of accidents often involve equipment failures, human errors, unforeseen chemical reactions or other hazards. But the ultimate goal of the Board's investigations is to determine the root causes of accidents, which typically are deficiencies in safety management systems. CSB investigative staff include chemical and mechanical engineers, industrial safety experts, and other specialists drawn from the private and public sectors. Many investigators have years of chemical industry plant experience. Even before chemical accident sites are safe enough to enter for inspection, investigators begin their work by conducting detailed interviews of witnesses such as plant employees, managers, and neighbors. Chemical samples and equipment obtained from accident sites are sent to independent laboratories for testing. Company safety records, inventories, and operating procedures are examined as investigators seek an understanding of the circumstances of the accident. Over a course of several months, investigators sift through evidence, consult with Board members, review regulations and industry practices before drafting key findings, root causes and recommendations. During the process, investigators may consult with plant managers, workers, labor groups, and other government authorities. The process generally takes six months to a year to complete, at which time a draft report is submitted to the Board for consideration. Reports may be adopted through a written vote of the Board or in a formal public meeting. In addition to investigations of specific accidents, the Board is authorized to conduct investigations of more general chemical accident hazards, whether or not an accident has already occurred. The Board's first hazard investigation was completed in 2002 and reviewed more than 150 serious accidents involving uncontrolled chemical reactions in industry. This investigation led to new recommendations to OSHA and EPA for regulatory changes. Both accident investigations and hazard investigations lead to new safety recommendations, which are the Board's principal tool for achieving positive change. Recommendations are issued to government agencies, companies, trade associations, labor unions, and other groups. Implementation of each safety recommendation is tracked and monitored by CSB staff. When recommended actions have been completed satisfactorily, the recommendation may be closed by a vote of Board. While some recommendations may be adopted immediately, others require extensive effort and advocacy to achieve implementation. Board members and staff work to promote safety actions based on CSB recommendations. In many cases the lessons from CSB investigations are not just relevant to the companies where the accidents have occurred but are broadly applicable. Many CSB recommendations are already being implemented in industry, leading to safer plants, workers, and communities

Description: For more than 30 years the Woodworking Machinery Industry Association (WMIA) has provided the North American wood products industry with the most technologically advanced woodworking systems available in the global market. Our more than 170 members are dedicated to providing their customers with the service and knowledge to compete worldwide. You'll find the association and its members at industry-focused trade shows around the world. The WMIA co-sponsors the International Woodworking Fair, the largest North American woodworking machinery, equipment, and service exposition, an important biennial issue forum for the industry. A wide range of special programs provides industry awards, scholarships and a host of other methods to support industry initiatives and address industry issues. Safety has always been an Association priority. We have run a series of ads featuring woodworking safety tips in major trade publications as a public service. A joint effort with the WMMA created the Winning the Safety Game video and the workbook The Professional Woodworkers' Safety Playbook and, most recently, state-of-the-art set of standardized machine safety labels. High technology education of the work force is also a WMIA priority. Three years ago WMIA began its Scholarship Foundation and founded the Wood Industry Educational Forum. More than $25,000 in scholarships have been awarded to date. The Forum developed the Careers in Wood CD-ROM program now used in hundreds of high schools as a recruitment tool. In the years to come WMIA will continue its commitment to providing a world of woodworking technology to its customers and provide leadership necessary to keep the North American wood products industry competitive.
