OHS at McDonalds

OHS at McDonalds | Interviewing people i dearly love and care for. OHS Quest 2 (also ohs quest 1) | Scoop.it

Maddison is a service crew trainer at McDonalds Beaudesert. "This means i serve customers on both drive thru and front counter, cook fries, pack orders. I have to ensure i continuously clean as i go (CAYG) and follow all correct procedures and policies. Other jobs include cleaning dining rooms, bathrooms, changing bins, sweeping and mopping floors are all part of my allocated jobs.

Jake Dent's insight:

Me-Maddison. Describe any key OHS risks you face in your job role?

Maddison-me. There are slippery floors from both oil spills, drink spills, wet floors. Also when doing a lot check (cleaning the parking areas) you may come across needles also poisonous animals (because Beaudesert is rural.) There is also hot surfaces-coffee machines and fryers. Manual handling products over 20kgs from the freezer, dealing with hot liquids and also moving vehicles when taking out orders out to the parked cars.

 

Me-Maddison. Alright interesting so can you tell me your understanding of OHS, and where you see it used at McDonalds?

Maddison-me. My understanding of OHS is having a workplace as safest possible for both employee's and customers. OHS is well regaurded at macca's twice a month there is a health and safety meeting in which we gather around and pick out any potential hazards using a matrix. Also there is a head of office inspection once every 3 months in which they check the quality of the meat we produce and also the cleanliness. and also once a year we have a SOR where Head of management will do a review on our store in which she will check for procedures, quality of meat, cleanliness, pretty much everything. And lastly there's a Health inspector that comes out once a year which checks over the entire store for health reasons.

Karens background: "I am a registered nurse, part of the medical team for the Australian Federal police. I am the theatre nurse and an expat from Australia working in PNG I am on call 24 hours a day 7 days a week and work 11 hours, 28 days straight in case of emergencies to the Federal police. I am FIFO 4 weeks on 4 weeks off.

Jake Dent's insight:

Me-Karen. What is your understanding of OHS, and where do you see it used in the company?

Karen-me. My understanding of OH&S is that procedures and policies are put in place in work places to protect and keep employees, employers and anyone who enters the workplace safe from any potential harm, with minimal risk where ever possible.

 

Me-Karen. Alright and where do you see it used in your company?

karen-me. In my job I see our company implements rules and regulations, like no cables or cords running across the floor so no one trips or falls. Being a third world country, they do not follow OH&S policies and have none in place so we have a battle keeping the place in one piece.

 

Me-Karen. Secondly can you describe key OHS risks you face in your work role?

Karen-me. Being in an operation theatre nurse i deal with sharps including hyperthermic needles, structures, scalpel blades and blood. Every patient we deal with we use universal precautions which we treat all patients we deal with as if we are at risk of infectious diseases including HIV and Hep C. I also can deal with violent patients that is a risk of an assault.

 

Me-Karen Alright and just one more question. in your job has any significant injuries have come about, and what impact did this have on you (long term and short term) in your job you have now?

Karen-me. I haven't had any significant injuries have happened, but we have had to go into lock down when the nationals have turned violent. We also have to lock our doors whilst driving our vehicles for the opportunistic nationals who would readily rob and car jack us. Due to these problems we are only allowed to drive certain routes and stay away from more risky areas.There is also a risk of certain viruses like malaria which we are taking prophylaxis to counteract this issue.

Brock the boilermaker

Brock the boilermaker | Interviewing people i dearly love and care for. OHS Quest 2 (also ohs quest 1) | Scoop.it

Brock is an apprentice Boilermaker (Fabrication Engineer) also a passionate wake boarder. Working in Waterford, he is in his 2nd year and really enjoys working there. Brock is involved with sheet metal working and works with high heats and dust, some jobs that comes with his apprenticeship is by, cutting, rolling, shape, bending, molding, spinning, heating or hammer metal products.

Jake Dent's insight:

Me-Brock. Hey mate, do you mind if you fill out this questionnaire?

Brock-me. Yeah not problem mate.

 

Q1. Describe key OHS risks you face in your job role?

A= There's a few that I'm aware of one is dust that may be around the work sight, also we deal with hazardous materials that is a potential hazards like coke ovens, refineries, chemical plants, glass plants. Also there's the hazards like Welding, torch cutting, soldering brazing and grinding, which may spew dust particles and also with welding the ultraviolet light and heavy metals are a hazard.

 

Q2. What is your understanding of OHS and where do you see it used in the company?

A= My understanding of OHS is that it is implemented into the workforce witch is enforced by legislation, and is implemented so that the workplace can make as much profit as they possibly can whilst keeping the workplace in the safest environment. In my job i see OHS everywhere, signs, and what not to ensure you understand the risk of doing that certain job and also a contract where we accept the risks associated with the machinery that we use. Also the use of PPE would be part of OHS as it not ensures but lowers the risk factor when performing certain tasks. 

 

Q3. In Your job has any significant injuries come about to you or others, what impacts did this have on you (short term and long term) in your job as a Boilermaker?

A= In my short time in the work of a boilermaker, no real occurrences where there has been a fatality or someone being really hurt, but on another note, at my old school in construction when cutting a piece of wood, a mate of mine actually cut his thumb of on a band saw, I know its not boiler making but an impact like this caused a bit of physiological effects on me where i still remember the incident, but no other real issues apart from a mild disturbance and maybe a few hours being a little shaky around the band saw.

Drillers Assistant

Drillers Assistant | Interviewing people i dearly love and care for. OHS Quest 2 (also ohs quest 1) | Scoop.it

This is my dad (Thomas) , he works in drilling for coal to determine their depth, thickness and suitability to mine.  His position is a driller assistant.  His job entails preparation of drill rods for use, adding rods to the drill string, removal and storage when the hole is completed, cleaning up the site, and moving to the next area designated for drilling. Monitoring the machinery during the drilling process and their maintenance and repairs.

Jake Dent's insight:

Me-Thomas. Describe key OHS risk you face in the role as a drillers assistant.

Thomas-me. there's many risks you face in the mining industry. Many of them you would've heard mate, but here it goes, you got; slips trips falls, noise, manual handling, falling objects, work at heights, confined spaces, traffic management, communication, crush injuries, pinch points, hot surfaces, dust, environmental (rain, lightning, UV, heat, snakes, spiders, centipedes.) Also there's kinetic energy risks like- fluids under pressure, chemicals, hazardous materials. So yeah mate, there's a lot of hazards out there that lead to risks, many of them are low risk but there's also that potential there for some serious harm when drilling in the mines.

 

Me-Thomas. Alright sweet, so what is your take and understanding of OHS and where do you see it used in the company.

Thomas-me. I understand that by OHS it is the employers responsibilities to provide a safe work environment to all staff (which is required under government legislation) and it is also the responsibility of all employees to work within company guidelines, and to follow 'safe work practices' and to look out for any hazards that may exist and report them. As well as looking out for the safety of yourself and any of your work colleagues. Companies also comply by having SWP, toolbox meetings, Take 5's and ensuring that all tasks are undertaken utilizing a risk matrix.

 

Me-Thomas. Alright and lastly, in you job has any significant injuries come about to you or others and what impacts did this have on you (short term ans longer term) and your career as a drillers assistant.

Thomas-me. Yeah I had a partial amputation of my thumb requiring surgery to re-attach thumb with pins to hold fractured bones in place. The healing process to return to full duties for 3 months, although after 5 years my thumb is still not 100% functional. My employer was very accommodating. I ended up resuming work 2 days later after the incident, which was basically light duties in the office whilst healing/physiotherapy. No other ramifications other then 6 months after resuming full time duties the employer found a way to dismiss me.
