This paper contrasts the features of medium voltage fixed circuit breaker switchgear (FCBS) and existing withdrawable circuit breaker switgear (WCBS) designs. Modern FCBS design elements that are discussed include an internal disconnect for isolation and grounding of circuits and interlocked operation among disconnect, breaker, and grounding switch for improved safety. Furthermore, features such as lower maintenance, smaller footprint, and reduced life cycle costs that result from its simpler design will be explored. By comparing the traditional ANSI WCBS technology to that of the FCBS, this paper will demonstrate that the fixed design, which has gained widespread acceptance in global markets outside the United States, is a viable alternative to the withdrawable designs.

This IDC white paper examines the drivers behind the adoption of IoT technologies by public services organizations and why the IoT is becoming a key investment priority. Public services are comprised of a diverse set of organizations, including federal, regional and local governments and healthcare and social services providers. These all have mandates to improve the safety, health and quality of life of their constituents across a broad range of programs. This paper also provides market insights and describes examples of IoT implementations that highlight the diversity of scenarios in the public service sector. These diverse scenarios illustrate the impact IoT solutions can have across many citizen-centric services.

Code updates happen for one main reason: safety improvement. NEC (National Electrical Code) Article 408.3 helps take electrical safety for service entrance panels to a new level. The code, updated in 2017, includes provisions to provide shock protection via panelboard barriers. The barriers protect from energized conductors on the line terminals of the main overcurrent protection device (OCPD) in a panelboard. When the main circuit breaker in a panel is turned off, line side terminals and conductors remain energized from upstream via the utility or another panelboard. With these barriers in place and the main OCPD turned off, installers are better protected when pulling wires into the panelboard. Today, all panelboards are shipped with shock-protective barriers. However, barriers are new to installation procedures, so contractors may not recognize them and accidentally throw them outeasily and often.

The Internet of Everything (IoE) is a continuous interaction among people, processes, data, and things. Sensors, networks, and smart devices are ubiquitous, providing a torrent of streaming data or big data. The Internet of Things (IoT), which is a network of physical objects accessed through the Internet that can sense and communicate, is a component of IoE. Cisco is helping customers and strategic partners leverage the full potential of IoE to achieve radical results across all sectors and industries. Indeed, IoE is capable of helping public safety and justice agencies increase cost efficiency, improve safety and security, provide better response times, and increase productivity.

The use of wristbands to identify hospital patients has been a standard practice for well over half a century. Handwritten, typed or printed, wristbands were originally created to provide an easy way for caregivers to verify identity at any point along the patients healthcare journey. From newborns in the delivery area to geriatric patients in rehabilitation, everyone got a wristband. And thats how things worked until the introduction of barcode technology. By putting barcodes on hospital wristbands, healthcare facilities can leverage a host of connected technologies to improve safety and quality of care. Its also the most effective way to comply with the National Patient Safety Goal (NPSG) to Improve the accuracy of patient identification, which the Joint Commission has included in its annual goals since 2003.

Sebasticook Valley Healths Emergency Department found that when it came to obtaining medication history, DrFirsts MedHx(SM) solution provided vast improvements over the built-in feed from their integrated electronic medical records system. The hospital did a side by side comparison of MedHx(SM) and their existing feed, and determined that MedHx(SM) provided superior results, which reduced staff time spent on medication reconciliation, improved patient safety and enabled the hospital pharmacy, as well as doctors and nurses, to be more proactive in pulling medication history upon patient admission.

Secure, efficient communication between doctors and staff is key to reliable patient care. For Groves Community Hospice, every situation involving patients requires rapid response; this poses a particular challenge, as more than 80 percent of the hospice staff work in the field. With so many doctors and staff off-site or on-call, and considering the inherent urgency of hospice care, Groves needed to streamline staff communications and enable a better way for physicians and staff to connect and discuss critical patient issues within a secure environment.

The new generation of mobile devices, applications, and cloud services significantly improve agency efficiencies. Tasks that were once relegated to timeconsuming deskwork, are now performed in the field, and with improved accuracy. Because of this, more and more public safety agencies are adopting these new technologies. One purpose of the FBIs CJIS Security Policy is to enable agencies to fully leverage mobile devices, but without sacrificing security. Mobile devices introduce a variety of new threat vectors and risks. Careful consideration of these risks is important to maintaining information security. Threats to mobile devices stem mainly from their size, portability, and available wireless interfaces. Examples of mobile device threats include: Loss or theft of device Unauthorized access to device Mobile operating system vulnerabilities Communication over untrusted networks Malware or malicious Apps Jailbreak or rooting activity Data loss through user behaviors

Safety is a top priority for companies with a fleet of drivers and vehicles. It starts with hiring and screening new employees with safe driving records and qualifications. You may even have written safety policies. However, having visibility into your drivers whereabouts and their behaviors behind the wheel is key in identifying and preventing risks before it costs your business. Do you wish that you could sit in the passenger seat of every vehicle in your fleet to watch driver behavior? With data-driven fleet safety management software from Silent Passenger you can. According to NHTSA, the cause of 94% of collisions is driver error. By monitoring unsafe driver behaviors such as speeding, hard braking, and fast acceleration is key to preserving fleet safety.

Labeling blood and other samples at the time they are collected improves patient safety and helps prevent a host of problems related to misidentification including many of the estimated 160,900 adverse events that occur in U.S. hospitals annually because of sample identification errors. There is a strong and growing body of evidence within medical literature that creating specimen identification labels on demand at the patient bedside with a mobile printer can significantly reduce errors. The Joint Commissions National Patient Safety Goals (NPSG) advocate the use of two patient-specific identifiers, such as name and birthdate, whenever taking blood or other samples from a patient, and to label the sample collection container in the presence of the patient.
