While having gumption in your work would be highly appreciated by your employers and co-employees, one must remember that, work safety happens to be a priority in all times and conditions, especially when the work happens to be on site! This statement is vindicated by fact that most of the construction companies out there are having more and more numbers of safety programmes for their workers. A proper safety procedure will help integrate accepted safety and health principles and practices into a particular task or job operation. The very first step of the “procedure” is to identify potential hazards and to recommend the safest way to do the job.
HAVING THE RIGHT APPROACH AND MINDSET
Dealing with all kinds of occupational hazards comes down to a simple methodology. The methodology is based on the idea that safety is an integral part of every job and not a separate entity. In this document, only health and safety aspects will be considered and there are many ways by which one can identify the “hazards”. The best one would be to observe a worker actually perform the job. There are tangible benefits of this method as it does not rely on individual memory and that observing or performing the process prompts the recognition of hazards. Although for jobs which aren’t performed that regularly, this method might not be the best option.
THE 4 steps to be taken are:
- Selecting the job to be analysed
- Breaking the job down into a sequence of steps
- Identifying potential hazards
- Determining preventive measures to overcome these hazards
THE WAY TO NESTLE AWAY THE WORKERS TO SAFETY
