Risky Business: Could You Make OSHA's - 10 Most Wanted List?
It’s that time of the year again to see what happened last year in regard to OSHA’s activity during the fiscal year 2008 (October 2007 through September 2008). The following were the top 10 most frequently cited standards for all types of industries:
Quantum is the Latin word for amount and, in modern understanding, means the smallest possible discrete unit of any physical property, such as energy or matter. Quantum came into the latter usage in 1900, when the physicist Max Planck used it in a presentation to the German Physical Society.
But, I digress as I often do when writing this column (at least I did not try to explain string theory or black holes). Here is a bit of an update on what 2009 will look like for me, and where this quantum fits in.
