Accident Prevention Plan
It is our objective to keep accidents down by forward planning and exhaustive hazard identification for each phase of work. These are to be carried out by supervisors/senior engineers and a detailed list of identified hazards used for review during monthly safety meetings.
Industrial Accident Prevention
The areas to be covered are:-
a) To prevent accidental and traumatic injuries arising from contact with energy sources, unguarded rotating equipment, horseplay or faulty equipment, exposure to gases, fumes and other sources of toxic/harmful emissions.
b) To train employees to be able to perform simple first aid, fight fires with portable fire extinguishers. This training will form part of in-
c) Train all personnel in how to swim. Staff will be swim-
d) Train all employees on the hazardous labels, handling of chemicals, the protective clothing necessary to handle chemicals safely, the storage of chemicals and the detrimental effects certain chemicals have on the environment and on humans.
e) Reduce the hazards of transportation especially on the highway and striking injuries during lifting operations and as part of company regulations, drivers of company vehicles must be fit and possess a valid driving license. When driver training opportunities arise, drivers will be nominated to attend defensive driving school.
For mechanical lifting -
In order to keep accidents to a minimum a level of protection is required. The provision of such protective equipment shall be the duty of Management. However, Management through supervisory staff will ensure compliance. All staff will wear protective equipment and if seen without the proper equipment the relevant party will be reprimanded -
Personal Protective Equipment
Hard hats, coveralls, safety boots, hand gloves, and goggles are to be provided for use. These items are intended to minimize individual’s exposure to injury and adverse effects.
Particular attention must be given to the nature of hazard and the exposure of the individual during selection. Extremes of cold and heat, chemical contacts, slippery surfaces, punctures, and heavy or sharp objects, are some such hazards. For effectiveness the user must have knowledge and a basic understanding of the hazards concerned. Adequate instructions to the user on the equipment limitations are of immense importance. When handling chemicals additional PPE must be worn such as aprons, full facial masks, breathing apparatus (filters), gloves which are able to prevent penetration of the chemicals into the skin, be it the hand or any part of the body. Certain aromatic solvents are carcinogenic and therefore should not touch any part of the skin -
It is our policy to ensure a clean environment -
Disposing of chemicals must be done in an environmentally friendly manner and in accordance with local regulations. Any discharge of hazardous material must be reported to the local authorities. Empty used drums must be disposed of in an environmental acceptable manner. All drums received back from our clients are recycled back or if badly damaged will be destroyed -
Integrity of equipment used for work, plays a vital role in accident prevention measures -
Management must demonstrate a visible premium on the standards of its staff working environment. Towards achieving this, a conducive environment for work such as illumination, ventilation, amenable offices, sanitary facilities and appropriate tools to maintain the above.
For minor ailments, both on site and office, a first aid box; with drugs provided and administered by a trained pharmacist. Training in first aid should be continuous and efforts should be made to train chosen members of staff.
The kit should have a list of pharmaceuticals and records to show its administration. Records of first aid treatments are forwarded to the company consultant pharmacist.
