Dr Ruy Mesquita

O Dr Ruy Mesquita foi muito importante em minha vida, tive o prazer de conviver com ele algum tempo no ano de 1976, quando eu era líder estudantil. Presidente do DCE do Mackenzie, tínhamos muitos problemas em uma época muito difícil. Foi o Dr Ruy que nos ajudou a entender melhor algumas situações que na época nos estudantes estávamos passando.
Pude participar de mudanças no Brasil, pois como líder estudantil e com o apoio do Dr Ruy, conseguimos naquela época retomar as eleições diretas para presidente dos DCE´s em todo o território Brasileiro. Foi por ele que conseguimos dialogar com o então Ministro da Educação e outros políticos da época.
Me lembro como hoje, que o Dr Ruy nos apresentou o deputado na época Ulysses Guimaraes, do qual temo um telegrama datado de 13/03/1976.
Dr Ruy se foi, mas nossa admiração ficará para sempre e compartilho com todos alguns momentos que tivemos a oportunidade de estar com ele.

Esta era a grande Equipe da Diretoria do DCE do Mackenzie em 1976, alguns bons amigos já se foram, mas as recordações e aprendizado nunca terminam. Um grupo de pessoas com coragem e com objetivos bem claros para mudar o Brasil daquela época.

Legionella na área de Óleo e Gás

The Energy Institute (EI) is set to publish an updated edition of its technical guidance on Legionella risk management control.

Legionellosis, also known as ‘Legionnaires’ disease’ is a strain of pneumonia, so named after it affected a number of attendees at an American Legionnaires Convention in 1976.
The EI will publish the updated guidelines to help the oil and gas sectors understand the actions that must be taken in cases of Legionellosis.
Both industries are required to meet legislative requirements and have practical control of possible Legionella contamination.
Legislative guidance outlines that every company with a fresh water system must maintain a compliant and robust water risk management system that effectively demonstrates how the risk of an outbreak is being minimised.
Recently, operators within the sectors have sought to control the possibility of contamination within their systems; implementing a ‘Legionella control’ mind-set.
However, past reports have resulted in several cases of Legionella being highlighted, with misleading information being blamed for the outbreak.
But the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has recently issued a safety notice, reviewing reported cases in the UK.
“Our research has confirmed the importance of businesses following the well-established and readily available guidance. Through safety notices we are reiterating what those responsible for maintenance of water systems should be doing already,” the HSE stated.
“They have a responsibility to manage the risk they create to protect workers and the wider public. This is a reminder of what the law expects. Failure to comply with the law means they may face legal sanction, including in the most serious cases prosecution through the courts,” added the HSE.

No Brasil a SETRI realiza Avaliação de Risco para a bactéria Legionella, utilizando normas e processos reconhecidos internacionalmente.

NAPERVILLE, Ill., May 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Phigenics LLC, the water services company that is enabling a transformative level of performance in facility water management, is hosting the Healthcare Smart Water Leadership Summit June 6 and 7 in Chicago at the Gleacher Center, University of Chicago, Booth School of Business. Leading experts from major healthcare systems, government agencies, and standards organizations will discuss how well run, multi-functional, water management teams can achieve and confirm water safety while driving down costs for healthcare facilities.
"We had been concerned with water quality at our hospitals and clinics for a number of years and about three years ago we decided to assemble a water management team and prepare a water management plan as recommended in the proposed ASHRAE 188P standard [Prevention of Legionellosis Associated with Building Water Systems]," said Dale Krageschmidt, Ph.D., CIH Mayo Clinic. "This has been one of the smartest infection prevention and control strategies that we have ever implemented. Taking a proactive approach to evaluate critical control points and make corrective actions as necessary will undoubtedly protect our patients and employees in the future. We are looking forward to sharing our story and hearing others' at the Healthcare Smart Water Leadership Summit."
This is an executive-level invitation only event. Invited speakers and guests include leaders in facility management, infection prevention, environmental health and safety, microbiology, epidemiology, and related fields within healthcare and adjacent industries.
