Transcript of OLD Health & Safety North America

Each of us are responsible for our own safety, with regard to how we perform our tasks, and how we conduct ourselves.

Watching out for co-workers is also expected.
NEVER use chemicals or equipment for which you have not been trained.

Use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) per its instructions.

Never Mix Chemicals.

Confirm the label before you use any product, and properly dispose of anything that is not properly labeled.

Fires can spread or grow very rapidly!
Extinguishers have limited abilities, based on size and the nature of the fire.
Extinguishers function at ranges of out to roughly 12’ and should not be used on large fires, except to assist in evacuating from the area.
Know your limits, and remember that protecting lives is the most important focus in fire situations.
Using an Extinguisher is Purely Voluntary.
You may be exposed to smoke and fumes, and will be in close proximity to the fire.
Controlling them reduces the likelihood of accidental fires
Fire requires three elements to exist:
Pay particular attention to people of questionable behavior or intent;
Report all accidents,
no matter how minor
Report all Safety or Fire hazards;
Turn in all lost property, and forward reports of lost property to the appropriate department.
Ensure that you ALWAYS:

the nozzle. Extend the nozzle, and aim it at the base of the flames.

Do not send sensitive data over email - e.g. members'/customers private information
Never write down passwords or share your MICROS card
Store any files on shared drives rather than your hard disk if you use work computers
Be careful when opening emails from unknown senders - if in doubt ask IT before you touch it
Treat your computer, company mobile or other company devices as if they were your own.
Physical security
Look out for unusual packages, people and suspicious behavior – if you’re not sure, report it
Keep equipment locked away when not in use. If you are working around a site, never leave your computer unattended or in a public space, remember to always lock your screen
Ensure any internal doors you have access to are locked when not in use and be secure with any door codes. Change them regularly.
External doors are to be properly secured as directed by your manager
