Scientific Evidence and Causation of Toxicity

TASA ID: 1111

Establishing causation is a critical - if not the most important - task when allegations of harm are made.  This is particularly true for adverse consequence arising from illicit drugs, pharmaceuticals, dietary supplements, and other chemicals.  Causation of adverse health effects and even wrongful death requires more than demonstrating an association or connection.  Knowing whether or not there is a causal link between a toxicant and a claimed adverse health effect is important for both plaintiffs and defendants.

Hidden Hazards of Confined Space

TASA ID: 3404

Frequent headlines in breaking news stories convey the tragic results of yet another confined space fatality accident. With fatality statistics indicating that more than 60 percent of rescues in confined spaces result in a workplace fatality.  Since most of these cases are fully preventable, sadly they involve local firefighters responding to trapped workers injured on the job.

A common misunderstanding many people share is that local firefighters respond to emergencies fully equipped as technical rescuers.  Having experience in structural fire control or vehicle emergency response doesn’t necessarily qualify one as a technical rescuer.  Comprehensive training, practical experience, and a working knowledge can adequately prepare responders to engage as rescue professionals, not before.

A Simple Test to Determine your Firm's Competitive Advantage

TASA ID: 4374

Defining a firm’s competitive advantage is difficult.  Both my students and friends in the business world struggle with this often. Many students and practitioners of business strategy fail to understand whether a firm has the ability to do something better than the competition. There can’t be a more important question in business strategy, can there? Unless we understand what our company does better than the competition, then we can’t understand how we should compete. It’s similar to a boxer going into a match without knowing his best punch; he won’t have a very good strategy for defeating his opponent.

What You Need to Know Before Hiring an Aircraft Appraiser

TASA ID: 4642

One of the factors which impacted both the S&L collapse of the ’80s and the real estate crisis early in the 21st century was artificially inflated evaluation reports from supposedly professional real estate appraisers.  Aircraft financing has been impacted just as seriously, even though this situation isn’t something most lenders will discuss openly.  However, it raises a question regarding the legitimacy of any individual aircraft appraiser or “professional” appraisal organization.  After all, there are no legal requirements placed on the aircraft appraisal industry; therefore, anyone can call themselves an aircraft appraiser – regardless of their knowledge, skills and abilities.
