Safety Orientation

When the day begins we all find lots of work to do. There are orders to fill, production quarters to meet and those ever present deadlines to hit, after all time is money and someone always watching the bottom line. But if we rush through what we are doing and aren't careful we could cause an accident and perhaps a serious injury. Sure we've got to get the job done, but the real bottom line is doing the job safely. That's where the phrase safety first comes in, it means working safely is the top priority our primary goal, we must learn to take precautions, protect ourselves from hazards, prevent accidents and prepare for emergencies.

Mental Preparation

Before you begin a task you must be mentally prepared to work safely no matter how simple or routine the job may seem. Concentration is the key if you give the task your full attention you are much less likely to make a mistake that causes an accident. There are number of things that can obstruct our focus anger and frustrations are two of the culprits that can cloud your mind and impair your judgment, a decision made in the hid of the moment could have disaster consequences. If you feel frustrated or angry take a break, step back and take a deep breath or switch to another task for a while. You can resume your original work when you are calm and in a right frame of mind.

Substance abuse has become a major problem in many facilities; Drugs and alcohol have no place in a workplace they can really alter your state of mind and ability to focus on what you are doing. You have to be careful about what you do on your own time as well. The residual effects of a substance can cause someone to have an accident hours or even days after they have last used the substance. If you drink do it in moderation and don't drive, make sure the effects of any alcohol you have had are long gone before you start to work. Know your company's drug and alcohol policy and follow it, inform your supervisor immediately if you suspect a co-worker is under the influence and never operate equipment if you are taking medication that could negatively affect your performance. Keep your mind clear, concentrate and be aware of everything that goes on around you then you'll be mentally prepared to work safely. 

Safely Housekeeping & Accident Prevention

Preventing accident is another important part of making safety our top priority. Most hazards can be spotted an eliminated before they become a problem. Inspect your work area, look for trouble's box that could endanger you or your co-workers then take steps to remove or reduce the risk of an accident. For example walk ways, hallways and exits must be kept clear of obstacles at all time. A simple pile of boxes could cause someone to trip and fall or block an emergency escape route. Things like loose railings and overstocked shelves are accident waiting to happen. Look out for fire hazards as well, sparks from machinery, damage electrical cords even piles of cardboard or paper can all be a source of ignition. Correct these situations like these as soon as possible. As you reach the end of your shift you still have some safety work to do.

Good housekeeping is also important for accident prevention. Tidy up your work area, properly dispose of used materials and return extra materials to their assigned storage places. Put all tools, equipment and manuals back where they belong as well. These eliminates clutter and make things easier for everyone to find. Don't overload shelves or jam packed storage areas find a place for everything and put everything in its place. Some situations don't have simple solutions, if you encounter a problem that you can't solve yourself talk to your supervisor or safety manager they're there to help. 

Personal Protective Equipment

Looking out for potential problems and reducing risks can help us to prevent accidents but there's more of the equation gloves, shoes and other personal protective equipment are often necessary to help keep us out of danger. Let's start at ground level and work our way up; 

  • Foot Protection - usually safety shoes is needed in many work environments. Most safety shoes have soles that are designed for safe attraction on specific surfaces such as oily or wet flooring. Many shoes have steel toes as well. You need to choose the best shoe for the job and wear it.
  • Gloves - can improve your grip and protect your hands from potential hazards such as splinters, sharp edges and chemicals. Gloves can be made from many types of materials including cloth, leather, metal mesh, rubber and plastic each protect you from different things. So make sure to wear the right glove for the job that you are doing. 
  • Eye Protection - may seem bulky and unnecessary, but remember eye injuries can be nasty far more uncomfortable than safety eye wear itself. Safety glasses and goggles protect against the variety of hazards. In certain situations, you may also need to add a face shield or welder's helmet. Ask your supervisor about the type of protection you'll need for your job.
  • Hearing Protection - can reduce or eliminate the harmful effects of hazardous noise. Earplugs, canal cuffs and earmuffs all provide different degrees of protection. If necessary, you can use both plugs and muffs in extremely noisy situations.
  • Respiratory Protection - when harmful dusts, fumes and vapors make the air dangerous to breathe respiratory protection is what we need. Respiratory hazards can do serious damage. Fortunately, there are a number of types of protection that can help. Filter masks, chemical cartridge respirators and supplied air respirators each protect you from different types of hazards. So, you should first determine what kind of protection you need for your work environment. OSHA has established assigned protection factors (APFs) for different types of respirators which can help you find the right respirator for your job. When you select your equipment make sure that it's undamaged, if you’re unfamiliar with the equipment it's a good idea to practice using it before going in your work area. For most respirators you will also need to undergo a fit test. 
  • Protective Clothing - like aprons and full body suit defense you against flying particles and contact with dangerous substances. A good strong hard hat is essential around overhead hazards. Keep in mind most tasks have multiple hazards, so combine safety gear for maximum protection. Talk to your supervisor or safety manager about the PPE that's right for you.

Safe Work Practices

The way you do your job is just as important as the safety precaution that you take, careless habits can have devastating consequences. Tools where we will be without them? But use a tool incorrectly and someone might get hurt. Always use the right tool for the job, make sure you know how to properly use the tools that you work with. Power tools and other electrical equipment require special considerations. Inspect power cords before use, a damage wire is both a shock hazard and a fire risks and don't create an octopus; Too may plugs in one outlet can overload the circuit, blow out a fuse or even starts a fire. Remember to unplug or lock out electrical equipment before attempting repairs, if you forget you may get a shocking reminder. 

If you are working your machine with moving parts make sure appropriate machine guards are in place. Remove loose clothing and jewelry that could get caught in the machine as well. If your job takes you into a warehouse, be careful how you handle the materials that you're working with; Wear appropriate PPE and get help if you have to move a heavy or unwieldy object. Only use powered equipment such as a forklift if you are trained and certified on it. Consult the operating manual if you have any questions. Plan your route and what you'll be doing with your lifts. Take your time and always be aware of what's going on around you. 

But safe work practices go beyond how we use tools and equipment. We need to be careful how we use our bodies as well. Each job makes a different set of demands, knowing how your body moves can help you to avoid ergonomic problems. Keep your body in neutral positions as much as possible. Select tools that are ergonomically friendly and whose weight, size and shape make them easy to use. Adjust your workstation to fit your size and shape, whether you’re in an office or on a flat floor. Keep tools and materials within easy reach. When you are lifting something be sure to use proper procedures, bend at the knees, keep your back straight and lift it with your legs smoothly not suddenly. If you are ever unsure about how to use a piece of equipment or perform a task, talk to your supervisor.  

Preparing for Emergencies

No matter how careful we are, no matter what precautions we take accidents still happen. So, we must be prepared to act if an emergency occurs. Read the safety data sheets for any hazardous materials in your area before you work with them. SDS is should be kept in a central location for quick reference.

Clean up chemical spills immediately but be careful, make sure you know what chemicals you are dealing with and the tools and materials that should be use in a cleanup process. Water is almost always the first line of defense when someone is splash by a hazardous chemical, this is where safety showers and eye washes come into play, be sure you know where they are and how they work. 

Fires are another major treat in a workplace. Nowadays they often involve toxic fumes and vapors which make them more dangerous than ever. Be familiar with your facility's emergency action plan, it will describe how to report fires and where to go if one occurs. You can sometime fights small fires and prevent them from spreading, so know where the fire extinguishers are in your facility and how to use them. Remember there are different types of extinguishers for different types of fires; be sure that you have the correct one for the fire that you are fighting. Make sure that emergency telephone numbers are posted in plain sight at all the telephones in your workplace. And know at least two evacuation routes that you can use if you ever need to leave your work area. 

Basic first aid and cpr can be valuable skills in many emergency situations but don't try anything unless you have the proper training, you could do more harm than good. Never underestimate the seriousness of an injury, seek medical attention as soon as possible. Above all the key to handling emergency situations is to stay calm.

That’s bring us to the end of your orientation to safety. Let's review;

  • Mental Preparation is Important
  • Focus on Accident Prevention
  • Use Personal Protective Equipment
  • Follow Safe Work Practices
  • Prepare for Emergencies

If we all work together as a team and play by the rules we can help but make safety our top priority.
