Vivian; Community and Stake Holder Partnerships Superintendent QLD Operations

 Vivian's role in her job is basically a managerial role in a mine site where she still has to abide by the OH&S standards required for that mine site. Her main OH&S hazards and risk are associated with ensuring others are following the correct procedures within the mine site for the risk of litigation against her and the company she works for, if she dose not carry out her role correctly. Some of the things that she has to ensure is the proper induction of staff, carrying out personnel clearance checks and site clearances fit for work!

Dave: Insolvency Accountant.

Dave would have the normal ergonomic OH&S issues to deal with for example, computer posture, single position for long lengths of time, etc. However when speaking to Dave, an interesting OH&S issue came to light. Because he is an insolvency accountant, sometimes he has the unfortunate task to inform workers of a certain company that they have been made redundant. Due to this fact he said that they have tried to take it out on him (even though he is just the messenger) therefore he has had to assess the risk that it coul happen and then have security provided to escort him around and back to his car!

Dale, Martial Arts Instructor

 The main aspects of OH&S within this environment would be the prevention of injury through clear and concise instructions of how to perform a technique, not only to prevent injury to the person performing the technique but to the partner of the person performing the technique. Another OH&S aspect would be to provide instruction on conditioning to prevent injury (eg proper stretching techniques etc.) plus making the dojang as safe as possible to train within.

Smith, Morgans, Qureshi, Archer & Buckle Jr, 2009, 'Paramedics perceptions of risk and willingness to work during disasters', The Australian Journal of Emergency Management, vol. 24, no. 3, pp. 21-27.

 

Once I become a fully fledged and working paramedic it will also be expected of me to "play my role" with in emergency responses to natural and man made disasters. This article is evaluating the perceived risks as seen from a paramedics' point of view. I found this article insightful as it will help me to consider the things that are important to me and the risks that my profession may bring to them and be able to weigh them up. I personally like to think that I would go into the circumstances as long as it is deemed safe and appropriate PPE was available and utilised.

Andrew: Electrical fitter mechanic

Upon speaking to Andrew and because he works with electricity I was not surprised about the amount of OH&S procedures to ensure his work sites are safe, not only fro his crew but also the general public as well. He explained that his OH&S requirements require him to fill out two forms where one form is a risk assessment of the scope of work to be carried out regardless of the environment. The second form is to assess and mitigate the hazards associated with the environment by either eliminating, substituting, engineering, administration or PPE the hazard

AdventureOHS's insight:

Recheal: Aged Care Nurse

Each of Recheal's jobs are compartmentalised to help with the mitigation of OH&S. For example whether she is handing out medication, making a bed, giving an injection or moving a patient, there are set procedures for each task that helps her assess and mitigate the risk and control the hazards associated with that particular task; for example making the beds, she has to make sure the bed is at a height suitable for all and they are to gather and not fluff the sheets/ blankets onto or off the bed for airborne particle control.
