Transcript of February Safety

to identify potential hazards and risks, and take proactive steps to prevent accidents and injuries. Our Goal is... Managers have responsibility for providing a safe and healthy work environment and for supporting the health and safety program. They implement & sustain an effective EHS & W throughout the organization - With the help of the managers and employees, we can achieve the goal of a safe work place. Terms Hazard-is a situation that has a potential for something to cause harm Risk-The likelihood that the hazard will actually cause harm. ie: An employee climbing a ladder that has been placed on uneven ground. ie: The person on the ladder that has been placed on uneven ground has to reach far to the side to change a light bulb. In this example, the likelihood that the ladder will shift has significantly increased. Part of the hazard and risk assessment is to evaluate the risks and apply certain controls. A control is an action or practice that will reduce, limit or eliminate the risk -Eliminate the ladder by changing the bulb with a long-handled tool
-Substitute the ladder with a mobile scaffold
-Remove the problem of the uneven floor by using a different kind of ladder
-Have a fellow employee stabilize the ladder
-Use PPE like a fall-arrest harness. Hazard & Risk Assessment What are some controls we can put in place to reduce the risk on the ladder? All of these controls lessen the amount of risk represented by the hazard. Even with a Hazard and Risk Management policy, and with safety training programs in place, accidents and injuries can still happen. When they do, ADT will conduct an investigation. The investigation is meant to find the root cause of the incident, and to make recommendations to prevent additional accidents. When is an accident reported? The accident should be reported immediately and at minimum by the end of the "work shift." It should be reported no matter how slight the injury and even if the accident did not result in an injury. Your job is to report it, not to decide whether it should be reported. -If you notice any kind of hazard in your workspace or that of a fellow employee, you have the responsibility to take action. Taking action may include: Taking Action -Correcting the hazard yourself if qualified to do so -Asking a fellow employee to correct it -Reporting it to your supervisor Each employee is responsible for immediately reporting ALL incidents. They are also required to perform an assessment of hazards and risks associated with their work activities, taking appropriate and preventative actions as necessary, properly using and maintaining assigned control measures such as participating in EHS&W training programs and taking personal responsibility for his/her safety and well being of their coworkers and the public. -Always consider your own safety first and your ability to deal with a hazardous situation. -Never take actions to remove or reduce a hazard if you are not qualified to do so -Stay within the limits of your training and know when to call for help Questions If you discover a potential hazard in the workplace, you should: A. Ignore it; it's the job of the safety officer to deal with
B. Report it, if you are unable or not qualified to correct it
C. Assess the risk, and then decide what corrective action-if any-that you can safely take
D. Correct the hazard, if it is safe to do so, and you are qualified to do so It doesn't matter how slight an injury might seem to you. Your job is to report it, not to decide whether it should be reported. True or False January Toolbox Talks -Defensive Driving
