Throughout the ages, electrical engineers have been improving new methods and devices to decrease the risk of using electric power. They are essential because they avoid electric circuit being burned. They created many machines and devices for this purpose. For example, a circuit breaker is one of these devices that increases the safety level of using electric power. a Circuit breakers is switching machine which according to the American National Standards Association (ANSI) are defined as “[a] mechanical device capable of making, carrying and breaking currents under normal circuit conditions and also making, carrying for a specific time and breaking currents under specified abnormal circuit conditions such as those of short circuit” (Garzon, 2005).
They also advise the technicians on the equipment they should use and how to transport the chemicals safely and efficiently. This makes sure that the technicians are protected from the potential risks of handling chemicals and ensures that the chemicals are transported safely and efficiently. These procedures change in the presence of radioactive sources. The regulations come from the RPA then they go to the Derby council who will analyse these regulations and may add some of their own for improved safety then it reaches the School and they have to follow these regulations and sometimes add their own to prevent any possible accidents. After that process the RPA representative for the school has to complete a training course on the new regulations so that he can advise the school on the schools radioactive sources.
What welding does is join metals or other materials at their molecular level with the technology. As shown in the video, the worker was doing a gate welding. The worker was doing welding with no proper personal protective equipment. This job needs a Job Safety Analysis (JSA) as we all knew that welding activity involves electric, fire and heat. Worker needs to identify the hazard come from the work task, develop a precaution to overcome the hazard, and follow a safe work procedure to avoid any bad consequences to happen during the work.
It presents ways to meet the standards and reduce the hazards Electricity is very useful and has become essential in modern life. Electric power is used in houses, farms, factories, public places, and commercial establishment and practically in every working place for lighting, operating appliances and machines, heating, cooling, chemical process and transport etc. Electricity is a very good servant but a very dangerous master. Proper precautions will render its use a safe. Dangers from electricity are due to: Electric shocks resulting in burns, injury, and death.
Do you feel like having power is easy as turning on a light switch to to plugging an appliance into the wall maybe you do but after reading this your opinion might change.This research paper will discuss the idea of barehanding and how to work on energized power lines. There is one certain technique that is called barehanding . “Barehanding” is a safe way for trained transmission linemen to work on high-voltage power lines, while being attached to a fully energized conductor (tower or helicopter). This technique is used to perform required maintenance such as replacing insulators, connecting hardware, and conductors on the transmission lines. It isn't very common but the idea of barehanding is growing.
Straighten the work area and place the tools ergonomically to reduce unneeded movement and reduce stress. Sweep the work area to keep the area clean is not just to make the area looks but it ensures that the equipment is functioning properly and reduce downtime. During the standardization state the previous stages are uniformed. Sustain to ensure the ongoing application and development of this initiative. The final S is Safety, we now focus on safety aspects of our job, reviewing any potential
A safe work environment plays an important role to avoid hazards for instance carcinogens hazard. Wood dusts are created when cut the pallets, drilling process, sanded, and machined. A safe work environment is able to overcome all the problem that caused by this wood dusts. A safe work environment will provide safety motivation and knowledge, safety awareness program, enforcement of safety rules and so on. For instance, using proper safety device, using proper work procedure and most important is all the employees must wearing required safety clotting and equipment.
Injuries can be prevented with regular maintenance and installation of appropriate safety devices. PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) is issued at the required workstation. It is used as barriers between a person and a hazard. Both the workers and supervisors are well-informed on the risks and accountability of not wearing the PPE. Regular audits conducted to ensure that worker use the PPE properly.
Engineering Companies What is Health and Safety? Health and safety is the aim to keep the workplace safe. It is regulations and procedures, put in place, intended to prevent accident or injury in workplaces or public environments. Health and Safety work order 1978 This is the order which gives responsibilities to employers to look after the health and safety, and well-being of their employees. It also gives responsibilities to the employees to comply with the measures set in place by the employer for their health and safety.
The employees are provided with clip-on ties, which is a cautionary measure that is taken so that we are not strangled if our ties get caught. Every department has an eye wash station and a first aid kit that are provided so that an injury may be given attention to right a way to prevent any further damage. Taking precaution helps to minimize accidents and protects the employer because the equipment is provided and therefore should be use, and if the equipment is not used and training was provided then that employee is at fault. The employees are provided with information, instruction and supervision to protect their health and safety. Some examples are the signs that are posted up in our lunch room and in our departments to keep us informed and reminded about the proper ways of lifting heavy items, proper standing posture, and exercises that can be done to reduce injury.
