The first step before commencing of any project/work is to maintain the SAFETY of employees.

Every workplace is different, so it is important for organization to develop an OSH program that addresses the specific needs of your operation. This OSH Program can serve as a starting point towards safety.

Once you have developed your OSH program, you will need to review it at least once a year to make sure it remains current and effective. An annual review will help you identify the strengths and weaknesses of your program so you can focus on the areas that need improvement.

Here we are taking some initiative to share some of the Workplace Safety and Health Tips for the well being of your employees.
  1. Be aware of your surroundings
  2. Keep correct posture to protect your back
  3. Use tools and machines properly

  5. Report unsafe conditions to your supervisor
  6. Wear the correct safety equipment
  7. Never take shortcuts
  8. Clean and organize your workspace
  9. Obey safety signs, stickers, and tags
  10. Be alert and awake on the job

Don't give fire a chance

There is plenty of air, fuel and ignition sources at every workplace. So we have all got to be on our toes to prevent fire.

Here are some ways.

  • Store all combustibles away from ignition source.  

  • Protect the equipment from falling hot metal while overhead flame cutting or welding is carried out.   

  • Use fire resistant blanket for covering the equipment and fire watch is made available with fire extinguisher.  

  • Do not smoke near flammables materials or in “NO SMOKING” area.  

  • Report any possible fire hazard you notice.      

  • Help protect temporary electric wiring from possible damage.  

  • Ensure the distribution is NOT OVERLOADED  In case of fire in or near live electrical equipment, use dry chemical extinguisher, not water.  

  • In hot work jobs, be sure combustibles are safe from ignition. Have a FIRE EXTINGUISHER handy for welding and cutting operations or when open flame equipment is used.  

  • Know where the closest fire extinguisher is located. Know how to use it. Check to see that fire extinguisher is in clear, in proper condition and ready for instant use.  

  • We do everything we can to try to keep our workplaces fire –safe-but it takes your help, all the time.

Have you ever done anything that wasn’t really smart? Something that you know put you at increased risk of injury? When you realized what you did, whether you were hurt or not, did you ask yourself, “Why did I ever do that?” For your own self-preservation, this should be a very important question for you to answer yourself.

Consider the fact that 80% injuries are due to unsafe Act and 20% are due to unsafe condition. If you realize that most unsafe conditions are brought about by human failure, then virtually all accidents/mishaps are brought about by unsafe acts. Why did you do something in an unsafe manner? To answer this question, you will need to put personal defenses aside and know that blame may lie within yourself. Also realize that there may be more than one reason for your actions and others may be involved.

If you knew the proper, safe way to the do the job, then you cannot claim ignorance. What is left, whether you like it or not, is carelessness. So what can cause you to temporarily disregard your own safety?

External Pressure :- “Let’s get this job done!” Usually this pressure comes from your direct supervisor. Disregarding safe practices is not going to save enough time to make a significant difference, however, any accident or injury is guaranteed to have an effect. As a matter of fact, when the pressure is applied, it is worthwhile to pay more attention to safety because we know from experience such situations frequently lead to more accidents.

Bad Habits :- You fail to follow the established procedure and you don’t get hurt (or you were not caught) this time. Psychologically, this is a reward and so you do it again and again and again. But it is also Russian roulette. You know, sooner or later, something is going to happen. There is only one way to stop it - stop taking risks! Do yourself a favor and follow the established procedures.

Internal Pressure :- “There is just so much to do and not enough time!” Are you self-motivated and self-directed? Most employers love this type of individual, but your single-minded determination to get the job done may cause you to lose sight of the dangers around you. Think of it this way: you will not finish the job if you get hurt, but you may finish the job if you don’t get hurt. Therefore, first: prevent injury; second: work to complete the job. Does that make sense?

Attitude :- “This safety stuff doesn’t apply to me!” Why doesn’t it? Safety applies to every employee all the time. It doesn’t matter if you’re a new employee or have been with the organization for many years, there is nothing in your status that will protect you from injury, except following the safe procedure.
Remember, safety is no more than doing the job the right way and following the established safe procedures every day, day in and day out
