1.    Interview with a Scenes of Crime Officer.

 

How long have you been in your profession? over 30 yearsWhat fields do you specialise in? Scene of crime unit BundabergExplain some situations you encounter regarding occupational safety, when entering a crime scene? One thing is the safety or your team and another as a fingerprint specialist is blood transmitted diseases.How would you describe your personal safety as an investigator? My personal safety is very adequate and required in a manner that is reasonable responsible to my work environment.What type of hazards are you exposed to as a SOCO? Environment hazards have particular hazards as the work area is not necessary in the office type of work, so I have ground and terrain hazards. The police take any equipment necessary to maintain  their safety.What type of controls do you have in place for these hazards? A risk assessment is done of the secured scene.Do you think you work environment needs improvement in relating to OHS laws? I could comment on that but I feel the right answer is there is always going to be improvement in OHS as new laws and new regulation are introduced.

 

 Kyilie-jean foster's insight:

I beleive that is alot to consider being a scenes of crime investigator. The constant control of protecting yourself from antibodes and bactiera would be scary. One would hope the doctors have medical vacination's and bioitic's sufficient enough to minimise infections.

QUEST 3 BACHELOR IN DISTRESS!!!!

QUEST 3 BACHELOR IN DISTRESS!!!! | Accident  Forensics Investigations and OHS 11026 Quest 1,2,3,4...... | Scoop.it

ASBESTOS EXPOSURE!!!

https://www.legislation.qld.gov.au/LEGISLTN/CURRENT/W/WorkHSR11.pdf

Kyilie-Jean Foster's insight:

Asbestos can be found in ceilings, vinyl floor tiles, electrical switch boards, walls and in the eaves of buildings. It may also be used in heat resistant mats/materials in science labs.

 

Any maintenance work done on buildings that could disturb paint containing lead will present a safety issue to exposed contractors, employees and students. If there are any changes to a workplace that are likely to disturb or damage any hazardous building materials then it will be necessary to review your risk controls to ensure no one is exposed to hazardous building materials. This is particularly relevant when contractors are hired to undertake tasks that could expose them or employees or students to hazardous building materials. Such contractors might include carpenters, electricians, plumbers and demolition workers.

What do you need to do? Consult with Health and Safety Representatives and employees about this hazard, arrange for a competent person to identify the presence of hazardous building materials in the workplace through a hazardous material audit and provide you with a formal report.

If asbestos is present at you workplace you would appoint a person to act as School Asbestos Co-coordinator within the school and develop an Asbestos Management Plan.

Inform the OHS Advisory Service of the identification of hazardous building materials at the worksite. They will advise you in relation to its handling and removal Ensure your Asbestos Management Plan is up to date as required by DEECD policy. Ensure that any contractors or others entering the workplace, who may be exposed to these materials are provided with the formal report outlined above to inform them of the presence and location of the hazardous materials. Ensure that contractors are shown part 5 of the Asbestos Management Plan. If reasonably practicable, indicate the presence of asbestos by labelling. Update the local OHS Risk Register after any works are carried out to control the materials. Only use certified contractors to carry out any hazardous building materials removal work; and Monitor the condition of the hazardous materials on a regular basis and be sure to update the local OHS Risk Register should there be a change in its condition.

Regarding lead and asbestos. Part 8.2 General duty pg.367 Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011.420 Exposure to airborne asbestos at workplace (1) A person conducting a business or undertaking at a workplace must ensure that. (a) exposure of a person at the workplace to airborne asbestos is eliminated so far as is reasonably practicable. (b) if it not reasonably practicable to eliminate exposure to airborne asbestos, exposure is minimised so far as is reasonably practicable. Note, WHS Act, section 19. (2) A person conducting a business or undertaking at a workplace must ensure that the exposure standard for asbestos is not exceeded at the workplace. Maximum penalty 60 penalty units. (3) Subsections (1)(a) and (2) do not apply in relation to an asbestos removal area.

Quest 1

MY GOAL IN 5 YEARS

Kyilie-Jean Foster's insight:

QUEST 1

                       

Think about where you want to be in 5 years ... where would you like to work, what things might interest you, the countries you might like to live, the profession you might be pursuing.......

Thinking back and questioning Yvonne's request of where I want to be in 5 years. Technically I started my quest of pursuing a career about 3-4 years ago. My goal back then was to go back to school and try the Uni thing. My age has now matured and I thought it is time to give up the dead end jobs I was accustomed to and make something of my life. I first started at STEPS which is provided by the university in Bundaberg. This was the first transition of education since leaving school in 1992. My jobs included arrange of trades and experiences but my satisfaction for a real job didn't become until a severe event happened in my life. So I completed the Steps program, finishing this course my decision was made I wanted to be a criminal investigator. The Bachelor of Accident Forensics program was introduced and I immediately signed up for the course. I have now enjoyed the BAF course for the past 2-3 years now and hopefully be finished by the 4th year of studies. Hopefully by the 5th year of my pursued goal will be the introductory to a new outlook on job prosperities. I am hoping that what I have learned though the wonderful lecturers and peer students that I will be able to pursue the career of an Independent Forensic Investigator. My ambitions are reasonable and should take me to places I have always wanted to go and also inform others of the difficult tasks that involves being a top investigator.

FALLS AND HIEGHTS!!!

http://www.deir.qld.gov.au/workplace/industry/construction/high-risk/work-at-heights/index.htm

Kyilie-Jean Foster's insight:

sited 10/5/2014, Queensland government, work place health and safety Working at heights in construction website.

In 2013 work place health and safety regulation act states: commenced changes towards clarifying control measures where there is a potential risk of falls. Fall height restrictions apply to no more than three meters for housing or two meters for construction work. WHSQ 2011states: under the section 78 of the WHS regulation these standards are specific requirement for working at heights. Failure to have a risk assessment of fall exposure will result in consequences of issuing a improvement notice. (WHS,2013). Any work that involves the risk of a person falling more than two meters is considered as a high risk and is required to prepare for safe work measures(s.291 and s.299). Managing the risk when working at heights is critical. The business conducting the work is to manage the risks to health and safety,  with falls that are from one level to another there is reasonable likelihood of a fall to cause injury.

Heights are a possible concern as many painters are required to, paint tall structures. Some heights may require some implements to do the job properly. The improper use of the safety harness, scaffolding, ladders, platforms and mobilised cherry pickers could cause potential injury or death due to falling from extended heights. The businesses safety training and courses should  prevent any accident from happening.

WHS act section 19 includes the definition of falls.

It states: (a) in or on an elevated workplace from which a person could fall. (b) in the vicinity of an opening through which a person could fall.  (c) in the vicinity of an edge over which a person could fall.  (d) on a surface through which a person could fall.  (e) in any other place from which a person could fall.WHS 2011

http://www.skincancer.gov.au/internet/skincancer/publishing.nsf/content/fact-riskfactors
Kyilie-Jean Foster's insight:
http://www.skincancer.gov.au/internet/skincancer/publishing.nsf/content/fact-riskfactors Environment issues – Sun cancer is a concern for some painters. The elements from the outside environment have a played a part in OHS management. UV Rays from the sun can cause different types of skin cancers. Skin cancer is mainly caused by exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVR) from the sun Anyone in Australia can develop skin cancer but the risk is increased for people who: • are exposed to ultraviolet radiation (UVR) during childhood and adolescence • have repeated exposure to UVR over their lifetime • have episodes of severe sunburn • have a light complexion (red or fair hair; blue or green eyes; skin that burns easily, freckles and doesn’t tan) • are older • have had a previous non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) • have a personal or family history of melanoma • have a large number of moles • have unusual types of moles (eg dysplastic naevus) • are immunosuppressed (including organ transplant recipients) Outdoor workers It is estimated that 34,000 non-melanoma skin cancers and 200 melanomas are caused by sun exposure in the workplace each year. Spending large amounts of time outside during peak ultraviolet radiation periods, over a long length of time, increases the risk of developing skin cancer. To reduce your risk of skin cancer, protect yourself in 5 ways: • Seek shade • Put on a broad-brimmed hat that shades your face, neck and ears • Wear sun protective clothing that covers as much of your body as possible. Long sleeved shirts with a collar, and longer style pants or skirts are good for sun protection. Fabric of clothing needs to have a tight weave and be darker in colour to increase your protection from ultraviolet radiation • Wear wrap-around sunglasses • Apply SPF50+ broad spectrum water resistant sunscreen liberally to clean dry skin, at least twenty minutes before being exposed to the sun, and reapply at least every two hours when outdoors • Also, avoid going outdoors unprotected between 10am-2pm (11am - 3pm during daylight saving), as this is when ultraviolet radiation is the strongest. Sunsave recommends.
