It is a policy of the company to adopt a zero accident initiative in the workplace to protect health, lives, properties as well as the global environment.
To eliminate a near miss or an accident, the safety practitioner and every employee is encouraged to spot hazards in their respective work areas. For every scope of work there is a possible hazard. It is the prime responsibility of the Safety Practitioner to eradicate that hazard by providing a Safe Plan of Action.
While the Safety Practitioner provides a doable solution, it is the responsibility of every working individual to cooperate with and abide by the suggested course of action to eradicate accidents.
I have tried to cite some situations wherein there is a possibility of an accident because of hazards.
1.Excavation spotter is right infront of the lifting equipment swing area.
2.Non-wearing of PPE’s, as such, the employee is a potential hazard.
3.Barricades are too close to the edge of the lifting equipment.
4.Slippery, wet or flooded floors.
5.Inadequate lighting facilities.
6.Smoking within the work premises or Smoking while working.
