When I spoke to Wayne about his job and what he wants to achieve in the next six months he told me that his companies safety management plan needed upgrading and his employees needed to have the training implemented.

His biggest issue with employee training has been in his turn over of staff.  He also wanted a new safety management plan to look at I recommended he start with the Western Australian Worksafe site as they are a very valuable learning tool.

www.commerce.wa.gov.au/worksafe


Worksafe can also help him and what licences his employees need to have prior to commencing work for him onsite


I have also included a link to the Worksafe plan

www.commerce.wa.gov.au/worksafe/PDF/...Plan/WorkSafe_plan.

MSHA Launches Online Tool to Improve Safety in Mining Sites

Mining is a very dangerous industry. Given that workers in the industry work under deep excavations under mountains and other mining sites, miners are exposed to bigger risks of accidents. These include collapse of the site, failure of the tools for mining and many more. That is why mining operators should do anything that they can to ensure the safety of their workers on the sites.

*multiple symptoms/sickness of people

*substances presumed to be hazardous

*fires, accidents, and rescues having an element of hazmat concerns.

 

Management includes risk assessment from senior officers who then develop and incident action plan.

Officers need to use their experience and knowledge to safely resolve a situation. This is constantly monitored and strategies modified accordingly.

 

FIREFIGHTER SAFETY AND OPERATIONAL ISSUES

*potential for rapid spread

*inability to identify chemical hazard

* resources may not be immediately available

* the liberation of excessive energy/explosions

*ionising and non ionising radiation

*physical contamination of chemicals.

 

TACTICAL IMPLEMENTATION

*careful approach

*collect information from a distance

*identify if possible

*establish exclusion zones

*request specialist operators

*wear appropriate PPE

*determine the mode of operation, offensive, defensive, short term , long term.
