  • Blindness

A good rule to remember is: 

While working in any manufacturing, construction or maintenance work activities, any machine part, function, or process which may cause fatal and severe human physical injury must be safeguarded properly and essentially.

Objectives Of the Training:

  1. Identify the main causes of machinery accidents.
  2. Familiar with basic machinery parts that expose the workforce to hazards.
  3. Familiar workplace situations involving machinery that requires guarding.
  4. Identify the requirements for machinery’s safeguards.
  5. Identify various types of machine guards including types of devices used to safeguard machines.

How machine accidents can occur:

  • Reaching-in to “clear” equipment.
  • Not using Lockout/Tagout.
  • Unauthorized workers or personals doing maintenance for machines or using the machines.
  •  Missing or loose machine guards.

Risk Assessment-Integrated Management System

The following are some important key points to conduct an Integrated Management System Risk Assessment:

Hazards

  1. Falling materials objects
  2. Occupational health
  3. Manual Handling
  4. Tools & Equipment.
  5. Noise
  6. Solids Waste

Control Measures

  • Barricade sensitive areas,
  • Ensure falling protection.
  • Use warning signboards in those areas.
  • Use Head protection strictly.
  • Provide catch on the chuck to collect foreign particle when drilling upward.
  • Wear necessary PPE’s i.e., goggles, hand gloves, dust mask, earplugs etc.
  • No worker should be asked to carry loads above his physical lifting capacity and in any case, no-load shall exceed 30 kilograms per employee.
  • Avoid manual handling where reasonably practical. e.g., use mechanical equipment.
  • Before lifting any object/weight, always assess the weight of the item to be carried.
  • Take help if the load is large/very heavy.
  • Check the line of travel. Don’t allow the load to obstruct the view.
  • The area should be clean, tidy well house kept and free from fall, slip and trip hazards.
  • Training personnel in the kinetics of manual lifting.
  • Use personnel protective equipment as provided.  (Safety shoes, helmets, coveralls, hand gloves etc.)
  • Defective tools should not be issued or used to perform a task.
  • All portable power tools should be equipped with adequate fuse protection either in the tool body or in its electrical plug.
  • The weight, size and type of tool item, object or weight should be selected to suit the job being conducted.
  • Only those persons who have been adequately trained and experienced in the use of the tool should be allowed to use the same.
  • Tools should be maintained in good working condition and tested at regular intervals.
  • All tools & machines should be neatly and correctly stored when not in use.
  • The work area should be maintained in good condition, should be kept clear of loose materials and prevented from becoming slippery.
  • Appropriate approved personal protective equipment.
  • Noise measurements should be carried out where noise is produced and at other workplaces where operatives may be subject to a higher level than their work generates.
  • Use of alternative, less noisy tools and equipment or methods.
  • Appropriate ear protectors must be worn.
  • The waste material should be kept in one dedicated place.
  • All wastes should be removed from the site after the work daily.
  • Dispose off in specific waste bins/yards as per the requirements of [Organization/Govt. Bodies & main or sub-Contractors)].

Bites and Stings

Millions of the pests and insect’s species are find in earth, but not all bites or stings by these species are the same. When we are beaten and or stung by any of the insects or pests, then we will need various first aid treatment and intensive medical care depending on what type of insect/pest and or animal has bitten or stung us. Some species can cause more destruction than others. Some people also have allergies/infections that raise the serious HSE risk of a serious reaction.

Here’s how to perceive and treat the symptoms of bites and stings from insects, spiders, and snakes.

If we look in wide scenario, nearly everyone has been bitten or stung by an insect at one time or another and unaccountable human daily get stung or bitten. Whether we’ve been stung by a mosquito, fly, bee, wasp, ant, or other bug, insect bites and stings generally cause a mild reaction. Our body reacts to venom/poisons or other proteins that insects inject into you or transfer to your body through their saliva. This can result in symptoms at the workplace of the insects/pests’ bite or sting, such as:

  1. Redness
  2. Swelling
  3. Pain
  4. Itching

The severity of our symptoms can different, depending on the type of insect/pest that bites or stings us. Some of us also establish a severe allergic reaction to insect stings or bites. Bee and wasp allergies are particularly very general. A severe allergic reaction can cause us as:

  • Hives
  • Abdominal Cramps
  • Nausea and Vomiting
  • Swelling of our Face, Lips, or Throat
  • Breathing Problems
  • Shock

If we or someone from us know begin to experience these symptoms shortly after being bitten or stung by an insect, call [EMERGENCY HELPLINE] or local First Aid Emergency Authority. A serious allergic reaction that affects multiple parts of OUR body is called anaphylaxis. It can be life-threatening and even death if not treated immediately.

If we, our workers at the workplace, our family at the home or any personnel near us ever had a severe reaction to an insect bite or sting, we should ask our ask doctor about allergy testing. If we been diagnosed with a serious allergy reaction, then our doctor should prescribe medication for such bites and sting named epinephrine. We can utilize a preloaded epinephrine auto-injector such as EpiPen to inject the medication in our outer thigh muscle. It acts very swiftly to raise your blood pressure level, trigger our heart, and reduce swelling of our airways. We should carry such type of medicine (EpiPen) with us at all times, particularly when we are far from any medical facility, or such areas where we might face such type of various venous insects.
