Jake Dent's insight:

This is a fantastic training manual for developing communication skills.

Communication skills are very important when on a mine sight as many injuries occur from the lack of communication at that given time. A great example is when repairing or checking electrical equipment, there must not be an electrical current within the equipment so it needs to be isolated. If the employee does not listen and wait for clear instructions that the equipment has been isolated he may start repairing when there is still an electrical current and therefor having a great possibility of electrocution. This manual is great for  developing communication skills as it outlines the 'seven c's', Active listening and also some communication models. This is a great tool that could be used to help manage hazards and risks within the workplace when regaurding communication

confined.pdf

Jake Dent's insight:

This PDF file contains a few key points when pointing out what is the hazard when coming into a confined space and also points out that, hundreds of people die when entering a confined space when not knowing what hazards are in place. From that it also points out how managers play a big role in which they implement confined spaces strategies to help prevent devastating or negative outcomes. The manual also mentions that record keeping could be a tool where patterns of incidents per month or week or year, could be at a high and would be able to be seen and possibly lower the risk. Another thing mentioned from the manual is pre planning where after you get the entry permit a plan should be set out to help with evacuation procedures, hazard identification and calculation of the risk factor whether qualitative or quantitative.

Crackdown on falls and falling objects breaches: QLD - Safety Institute of Australia

Crackdown on falls and falling objects breaches: QLD - Safety Institute of Australia | Ohs Quest 3 | Scoop.it

Sia's, news paper includes the crackdown on falling objects with a 15,000$ fine being issued out.

Jake Dent's insight:

As a drillers assistant Thomas deals with handling drill bits and rods. It may seem like a very simple and front forward hazard but yes you may see the sign placed around. But something as a drill bit falling from the back of a truck is not something that is not exactly where you would think a falling object would come from. A lot of people think falling objects only originate from building but falling from small heights can still do significant damage.
