It sprang from his anger and frustration over police killings of Black people, and his own frequent traffic stop experiences. “It wasn’t about revenue, it was about saving lives,” Njie said. “And I realized if I was going to succeed at that, I’d need revenue and had to figure out ways to do that.” Davidson College has a long history of turning out entrepreneurs, with a vast array of students and alumni creating businesses and non-profits from passion projects. On this week dedicated to National Entrepreneurship, we celebrate their innovation and determination. Like Njie, many entrepreneurs build their businesses from personal experience, and by recognizing unfilled needs in a rapidly changing world. Innovation has a campus home at the Jay Hurt Hub for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. The space facilitates access and exposure to innovation and entrepreneurship for all Davidson students, alumni, faculty, Hurt Hub co-workers and community members. The Hurt Hub offers educational programming, experiential learning in a safe environment, an inclusive co-working space, a strong mentor network, and access to startup capital. “You’ve got to sell yourself and your vision; you have to be extremely articulate and passionate when you’re trying to get people to invest in your business,” said Hurt Hub Director Liz Brigham ’04, who has worked with and mentored many entrepreneurs. “So much of it is your own personal gumption—who you are and your ability to execute.” She recently interviewed Njie for the Hurt Hub’s new speaker series, Hub and Spoke . “I have so much respect for him and what he’s doing,” said Brigham, whose friendship with Njie began during their first year as Davidson students. “He’s obsessed with this problem, and he’s obsessed with helping others.” Njie was a baby and only child in Gambia, West Africa, when his parents divorced. Both met other people, and at 7, Njie left his home, mother and most of his family in Gambia to live with his father and stepmother in Macon, Georgia. His parents believed he’d have far more opportunities in the United States. At Davidson, the anthropology major served on the Union Board, walked onto the men’s soccer team, then later played club soccer. He was active in the Black Student Coalition and co-hosted a point-counter-point type WALT 1610 radio show about campus happenings. (Brigham, also on the Union Board, offered some of those counterpoints.) As a senior, he was homecoming king and had a brief stint as then-mascot “Mr.https://www.davidson.edu/news/2021/02/15/traffic-stop-app-aims-save-lives

This includes qualified training on procedures to erect, maintain, disassemble, and inspect fall protection systems. Workers should also be trained on the safe operation of personal fall arrest systems, safety nets, warning line systems, control access zones, and guardrails. Employers should verify compliance with a written certification record that contains the names of employees that have been trained, dates of training, and the signature of the employer or person who conducted the training. Workers face serious hazards when barrier guards, two-hand tripping devices, electronic safety devices, and other methods of machine guarding are not properly employed. Guards should be attached to machines whenever possible. Employers should train workers on OSHA’s Machinery and Machine Guarding standard (1910.212) and ensure that guard use does not create its own safety hazards. They should also provide proper equipment for machine guarding and make sure workers know the correct way to attach and detach guards. According to the CDC, each day roughly 2,000 U.S. workers suffer a job-related eye injury that requires medical treatment. The majority of injuries are caused by small particles or objects that strike or scrape the eye, such as dust, cement chips, metal slivers, nails, or drywall. Chemicals can also cause burns to a worker’s eyes or face. Employers should provide appropriate PPE to prevent eye and face injuries. Guards and controls on machines can help prevent particles from shearing off during operation. Welding curtains can prevent arc flashing, and goggles and face shields provide higher impact protection. If workers wear glasses with prescription lenses, employers must ensure they wear eye protection that fits over their glasses or incorporates the prescription in its design. Eye protection policies should include eyewash stations and training on OSHA’s Eye and Face Protection standard (1926.102) . Preventing Accidents and Violations Through Safety Training You can avoid OSHA violations and injuries with workplace safety training. Training your workforce on safety standards can also protect your business from OSHA fines , which can add up quickly. Employers can be hit with a penalty of up to $13,494 per violation.https://www.forconstructionpros.com/business/construction-safety/article/21139498/top-10-osha-violations-of-2020
