Plastic surgery abroad can lead to severe complications after returning to the US

(Wolters Kluwer Health) Patients traveling to developing countries for plastic surgery procedures may experience severe complications--requiring extensive and costly treatment after they return to the United States, reports a study in the April issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).

Statistics reveal that human unsafe behaviors are the main cause of accidents. In this paper, based on the Fishbone Diagram, the influencing factors of unsafe behaviors of coal miners were identified from 5 aspects including individual factors, physical environment, safety leadership, safety management, and group factors. Next, the indicators ...

DiscussionA reliable and valid fire service safety climate scale was developed. The scale’s dimensions of management commitment within fire department and supervisor support within stations are embedded in a larger instrument, the Fire service Organizational Culture of Safety survey (FOCUS). This simple tool allows fire departments to assess shared perceptions of safety policies and practices and the impact of such perceptions on safety and organizational outcomes.

Risk identification technology based on the fuzzy support vector machine (FSVM) model can more comprehensively and automatically identify possible risks through a learning model, and this technology has become the main method for dynamic risk identification. To improve the efficiency and accuracy of recognition, the selection of parameters of the FSVM is very important. An artificial immune algorithm (AIA), an effective sto...

The data attributes of wireless sensor network are highly redundant. The traditional BP neural network is easy to fall into local optimal solution, poor generalization ability and slow convergence. With the low precision and other problems, it is difficult to accurately classify the data, and a classification algorithm using neighborhood rough sets is proposed. The neighborhood rough set model applies the rough set theory to the neighborhood...

It is not feasible to construct an abnormal intrusion detection model by using behavior mining technology based on traditional clustering. According to the characteristics of Sensing network attack behavior, this paper proposed a Sensing network attack detection algorithm based on improved multi-cluster. Firstly, it used improved spatial clustering algorithm to reduce spatial data feature dimensions and feature computational compl...

Marijn Poortvliet, Martin Knotters, Petra Bergsma, Joël Verstoep, Jiska van WijkAbstractUncertainty analysis is not typically performed in hydrological and hydraulic modelling. This is problematic because this may lead to inefficient decision making in water management. We therefore explored the role of statistical knowledge on uncertainty in decision-making processes in long term flood risk management within the context of regional water boards in the Netherlands. Research questions were: (1) in which parts of flood risk management statisti...

The objective of this work is to concretize urban resilience to floods by proposing a spatial decision support tool co-built with urban managers. The proposed methodology is a holistic approach integrating three indicators of resilience applied to the Avignon case study (Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur Region).

It is theoretically positioned within a practice based approach to risk communication and management as an organizational activity, or “risk work”. Risk work in organizations build on sense making, alignment to commonly agreed prudent practices, and learning from experience. The empirical method consists of interviews with practitioners working with risk communication at six government ...

Publication date: October 2019Source: Safety Science, Volume 118Author(s): Dennis Hudson, James D. RamsayAbstractLike many disciplines, modern occupational, safety, and health (OSH) in the US is the result of years of professional maturation by three main drivers: practitioners/best practices, professional associations (i.e., certifications, education standards, etc.) and a series of external events (law, policy, accidents, etc.) i.e., that continue to influence the collective development of the profession. This paper reviews each driver and its contribution to the evolution of OSH in the US. In the US, what is recognized ...
