Transcript of Hazard Identification

There are three steps used to manage health and safety at work:
1. Spot the Hazard
(Hazard Identification)

2. Assess the Risk
(Risk Assessment)

3. Make the Changes
(Risk Control)
Common hazards encountered by computer technicians and users
3. Make the Changes
Hazard Identification
Occupational safety and health (OSH)
Physical Hazard
One of the most common physical hazards involving computer technicians is cables running across the floor. If someone trips, falls, and hurts himself because of a cable you ran across the floor, someone (you, your employer, or your customer)
has a serious legal negligence problem.
Using the Think Safe Steps
A hazard is anything that could hurt you or someone else.
Examples of workplace hazards include:
frayed electrical cords (could result in electrical shock)
boxes stacked precariously (they could fall on someone)
noisy machinery (could result in damage to your hearing)
During work experience, you must remain alert to anything that may be dangerous.
If you see, hear or smell anything odd, take note. If you think it could be a hazard, tell someone.

For listening and reciting for our report at the 25th Day of July. And we will now have our 5 point quiz.

Assessing the risk means working out how likely it is that a hazard
will harm someone and how serious the harm could be.

Whenever you spot a hazard, assess the risk by asking yourself two questions:

How likely is it that the hazard could harm me or someone else?
How badly could I or someone else be harmed?

Always tell someone (your employer, your supervisor or your health and safety representative) about hazards you can't fix yourself, especially if the hazard could cause serious harm to anyone.

Occupational safety and health (OSH) is a planned system of working to prevent illness
and injury where you work by recognizing and identifying hazards and risks. Health and
safety procedure is the responsibility of all persons in the computer and technology
industries. You must identify the hazards where you are working and decide how dangerous they are.
A Hazard Identification Study is the process of identifying hazards in order to plan for, avoid, or mitigate their impacts. Hazard identification is an important step in risk assessment and risk management.
What is Hazard Identification?
2. Assess the Risk
1. Spot the Hazard
The tool can be used to determine the adverse health effects of exposure to a chemical stressor and to plan for building repair costs or retrofitting in areas prone to natural disaster.
For example:
Ask your supervisor for instructions and training before using equipment.
Ask for help moving or lifting heavy objects.
Tell your supervisor if you think a work practice could be dangerous.

If you are not sure of the safest way to do something during work experience, always ask
your work experience supervisor.
It is your employer's responsibility to fix hazards. Sometimes you may be able to fix simple

hazards yourself, as long as you don't put yourself or others at risk. For example, you can

pick up things from the floor and put them away to eliminate a trip hazard.
Physical Hazards
Mechanical Hazards
Chemical Hazards
Electric Shock Hazard
CRT Monitor High-Voltage Hazard
Mechanical Hazard
When working on electronic equipment,
ask yourself "Is there any way this equipment
could hurt me? You might stick your hand
in a printer and suddenly the paper feed arm moves, feeding not only paper through the
printer, but a piece of your finger too.
You might move your hand past a computer
chassis and lose a chunk of flesh because it
is razor sharp. When working on electronic equipment always be alert to any possibility
of being hurt by moving parts, hot
components, or sharp edges.
Chemical Hazard
There is a wide array of chemicals used
with electronic equipment. There are
display cleaning chemicals, keyboard
cleaning chemicals, compressed gas
dirt and dust removers, and many
cleaning solvents. Some of these
chemicals can be harmful if accidentally swallowed, get on bare skin, or get in
eyes. Before using any chemicals for
electronic equipment always read the
warnings and instructions on the label.
Inside computers and electronic equipment, there is a range of voltages from 3.3 volts to 25 volts, most of these are harmless. But at the power supply, you'll find line voltage, which is a lethal 220 volts. Most of the time while working inside computers and electronic equipment, you'll want them unplugged from the wall socket. If you need to work on equipment while it is still plugged in
or powered up, remove all jewelry and wrist watches.
Electric Shock Hazard
CRT Monitor High-Voltage Hazard
CRT monitors are becoming less common nowadays, but should you run into one, it is best NOT to open it up.

Instead, outsource any CRT repair job to a qualified CRT repair service. A CRT monitor has a high-voltage anode inside it, which can carry a charge of up to 25,000 volts, and it can still be holding a high charge days after the power is removed.
Please bring out your 1 fourth sheet of paper and answer the following.

1. What is Hazard Identification?
2. What is Hazard?
3. What are the 3 steps of "Think Safe" Steps?
4. What are the Common hazards encountered by computer technicians and users?
5. In your own words, what is safety to you?
A hazard is anything that could hurt you or someone else. A hazard is a situation in the workplace that has the potential to harm the health and safety of people or to damage plant and equipment. The situation could involve a task, chemical or equipment used. Hazard management is a continuous process that can be used to improve the health and safety of all workplaces.
