BOOK EXCERPT:

BIOGRAPHY & AUTOBIOGRAPHY: GENERAL. Recently retired following a long and distinguished career as a seaman and 'hard hat' diver working on complex underwater engineering projects, Bob Sinclair now sets down both his story as one of the last hard hat divers, and his history, which takes us back to the 1930s and his childhood in Scotland. He recounts his enduring love and fascination with water, no doubt inherited from his seafaring father, the depredations and joys of growing up in wartime Scotland, and his own father's often life-endangering adventures at sea. His own career was no less eventful and no less dangerous. Often below for astonishing periods of time (eighteen hours in one instance) and working against the clock of civil engineering contracts, Bob and his colleagues show an unstinting and unwavering sense of duty and commitment to their work, and even more importantly, to one another. A hart hat diver's life is literally always in the hands of someone else.

BOOK EXCERPT:

In May 1970, four days after Kent State, construction workers chased students through downtown Manhattan, beating scores of protestors bloody. As hardhats clashed with hippies, it soon became clear that something larger was happening; Democrats were at war with themselves. In The Hardhat Riot, David Paul Kuhn tells the fateful story-how chaotic it was, when it began, when the white working class first turned against liberalism, when Richard Nixon seized the breach, and America was forever changed. It was unthinkable one generation before: FDR's "forgotten man" siding with the party of Big Business and, ultimately, paving the way for presidencies from Ronald Reagan to Donald Trump. In the shadow of the half-built Twin Towers, on the same day the Knicks rallied against the odds and won their first championship, we relive the schism that tore liberalism apart. We experience the tumult of Nixon's America and John Lindsay's New York City, as festering division explodes into violence. Nixon's advisors realize that this tragic turn is their chance, that the Democratic coalition has collapsed and that "these, quite candidly, are our people now." In this nail-biting story, Kuhn delivers on meticulous research and reporting, drawing from thousands of pages of never-before-seen records. We go back to a harrowing day that explains the politics of today. We experience the battle between two tribes fighting different wars, soon to become different Americas, ultimately reliving a liberal war that maimed both sides. We come to see how it all was laid bare one brutal day, when the Democratic Party's future was bludgeoned by its past, as if it was a last gasp to say that we once mattered too.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Struck-by accidents are a leading cause of traumatic brain injuries in the construction industry. While hard hats are the conventional means of industrial head protection, the current test standard to evaluate hard hat performance does not assess their ability to mitigate head accelerations from such impacts. To address this gap in knowledge, three investigations were pursued as part of this thesis. First, a variety of commercially available hard-hat designs - differentiated by shell design, number of suspension points, and suspension tightening system - were tested for their ability to attenuate accelerations during vertical impacts to the head. All hard-hats appreciably reduced head acceleration to the unprotected condition. However, neither the addition of extra suspension points nor variations in suspension tightening mechanism appreciably influenced performance. Second, the same hard hat designs were tested for their ability to attenuate head accelerations when subjected to impacts in two different head orientations - upright and forward-flexed by 30°. Impacts to the forward-flexed head resulted in the largest measured angular accelerations, and hard-hats were least effective at mitigating angular accelerations in this head position. Additionally, no correlations were observed between hard hat performance in an upright head orientation versus forward-flexed orientation. Results from this study provide insight into why impacts to a forward-flexed head are prevalent in epidemiological data, and also suggest that current hard-hat designs may not be optimized for impacts to a forward-flexed head. Lastly, a validated finite element model of a hard-hat was developed that accounted for more geometric detail than other models previously seen in literature. This validation process highlighted the importance of specific design features present in a hard-hat (such as headband attachments) and their influence in construction worker's safety against head injuries. Taken together, the work here represents a significant advance towards improving occupational safety in the construction sector.

BOOK EXCERPT:

At forty-five, Ellen Ford was unemployed and looking for a career change when an architectural drawing course started her down a path she'd never considered. Based on her success in the course and interest in the subject area, a college advisor recommended she enter the school's construction management program. The idea was intimidating. To succeed, Ellen would have to overcome deep-seated test anxiety while studying a discipline where women were, at best, a minority. But Ellen would thrive in the world of construction management-even though in the months after graduating, jobs always seemed one interview away despite her honors performance in college. The mid-1980s were difficult for women in construction. Ellen persisted, however, eventually landing a position as a project manager for one of the nation's leading construction management teams. This lady wore a hard hat-and she wore it well. An inspirational and instructional treatise on one woman's personal transformation offering professional recommendations for those in the field, The Lady Wore a Hard Hat: Building Medical Facilities is a fascinating window into the world of construction management that details the many challenges, issues, and rewards associated with overseeing the construction of major medical facilities.
