Andrew the Skiing Instructor

Andrew the Skiing Instructor | OH & S In Different Workplaces | Scoop.it
Richard Barrett's insight:

This is Andrew and he is a Skiing instructor. Skiing is one activity that is well known for injuries. As the skiing instructor Andrew has the job of not only teaching people how to ski but also in many cases is looking after children for long periods. One area that Andrew is concerned with is the use of proper safety equipment of not only himself but also his students. Teaching the student proper ways of falling is also another way he tries to minimise any possible occurrences of injuries. As he is also in charge of looking after the children he also has to be aware of their personal safety etc.

Scotty the Fork Lift Driver

Scotty the Fork Lift Driver | OH & S In Different Workplaces | Scoop.it
Richard Barrett's insight:

This is Scotty the forklift driver. Working on a forklift in a large warehouse, there are always going to be OH & S issues that need to be addressed. One of the main issues would be the proper use of the Forklift so that there are no roll overs or dropped palates. Other issues that could be of concern is visibility whist driving with a full load as the driver cannot always see in front of the palate's contents. This would be an obvious risk to employees on the floor that may happen to walk in front of the forklift accidentally. There are also many other issues such as palate size or the stacking of the palates contents.

Nathan the Pilot

Nathan the Pilot | OH & S In Different Workplaces | Scoop.it
Richard Barrett's insight:

Nathan is a small aircraft pilot. Being a pilot there are the obvious OH & S issues that can be pointed out, such as passenger safety -ie- not crashing, but there are some that others wouldn't think about such as sitting in the same position for a long time. In many cases the flight that Nathan undertakes aren't long haul flights so this isn't of major concern but it is still one to consider. There is also the issue of fatigue. Nathan has to make sure he is well rested before flying as simple errors could have major consequences.

Richard Barrett's insight:

This is Heath and he is an electrician. Heath works around the Central Queensland region doing jobs from wiring for a new house to fan installations. As an electricians there are the obvious O &S issue of electrocution that he must think about when performing any job. On top of this issue there is also the issue of when he is working at any height. This means he is using a ladder and therefore need to think about his positioning on the ladder to make sure he doesn't fall.
