Caitlin Bayley's insight:

You won't be able to check this page out however, this website is a very useful link for all McDonalds employees. For Langy (Caitlin, my manager). She is responsible for understand and know all areas including all procedures and policies... Right down to only using blue gloves to place the raw meat on the grill to using the clear gloves to take the meat off the grill. Or even what tongs are used for what area and what particular product they are used on. The metime website which is utilised by all staff have training programs such as me-learning modules that help educate employees on the procedures and policies of every area. Caitlin can use this at anytime and has access to it for the whole duration of her McDonalds career. If she is unsure of a certain procedure she can use the work computer to access the me-learning modules and then search the area in which she is having a problem with. Within the O&T section there is a shift management part. This refers to all the timing systems (how long the product can sit there for) for the food and the temperature vats (this is where all the fry products cook) and the grill temperatures should be in order to have the food fully cooked to the Australian food safety guidelines.

Hockey

Hockey | OHS Quest 2 and 3 | Scoop.it

Leighton is the one in the purple uniform. He has been playing hockey for over 10 years. He has played both professionally and as a hobbie

Caitlin Bayley's insight:

This sport is not a contact sport however, getting hit with a stick.. (not always) by accident happens within this sport as both players are trying to hit the little ball to get it in there goal.

This sport as some very basic rules that players must obey by

Shield or obstruct the ball from an opponent with the body or stick.  All players must have an equal chance to gain control of the ball as it is dribbled or passed down the field.Play the ball with the rounded side of the stick.Charge, hit, shove or trip an opponent.Play the ball in a potentially dangerous way.Raise the stick above the waist in a dangerous manner while attempting to play or stop the ball.Advance the ball by any means other than with the stick.Stop or deflect the ball in the air or on the ground with any part of the body.Hit, hook, hold or interfere with and opponents stick

If these rules aren't obeyed they result in a foul. These rules help avoid or minimise any H&S that could happen if these aren't followed resulting in physical harm to players (injuries)

DRAFT-COP-Preventing-Responding-Workplace-Bullying.pdf

Caitlin Bayley's insight:

McDonalds does not tolereate workplace bullying and discrimination.

The award system within McDonalds clearly states

-values diversity

-promote equal employment opportunity

 

McDonalds encoruages a positive environment with zero tolerance of workplace harassment and bullying by implementing and maintaining an open door metality between crew members and management. Any issues are addressed through structured and fair counselling process to mediate the best outcome of disputed parties.

However, sometimes these issues happen and McDonalds needs to implement prevention methods and with the use safe work australia there is many ideas on how to prevent

McDonalds Manager Lang

McDonalds Manager Lang | OHS Quest 2 and 3 | Scoop.it

This is Caitlin also known as Lang. She is one of my managers at McDonald's. She has been working here for just under 6 years and was recently promoted to a manager. This is a photo of her checking food safety at work. This is done during transition period. Transition period is when McDonald's goes from breakfast product to regular product (Lunch). It takes about 30 minutes to complete. She has to fill in the temperate into a booklet that is checked whenever we have SOR and FLR. SOR happens every few months where as FLR happens every 18 months and this is where they check the whole entire store. See how it is running, check the procedures are being followed correctly, etc. 

Caitlin Bayley's insight:

This helps our store check to make sure all our equipment is working correctly and cooking our product to the correct temperature so that customer don't get food poisoning. Only managers who complete SMX course can check the food safety as this is an important aspect and if it is completed incorrectly McDonald's can be sued as well as this we can tell if the grill temperature is high enough to kill any bacteria that that may be in the food

Irish Dancing

Irish Dancing | OHS Quest 2 and 3 | Scoop.it

This is Megan. She does has been doing Irish dancing professional for the past 15 years. She competes all across the world in State and National championships

Caitlin Bayley's insight:

Irish dancing is like most sports. It is full of accidents, injuries, hazards and risks. Accidents can happen really easy in this professional by accidentally putting too much weigh on their feet during their toe leaps that reach up to 2-3 meters high. The main types of injuries these dancers and incur are stress fractures, patellofemoral pain syndrome, sever conditions, ankle sprains, posterior tibialis tendonitis, plantar fascitis and many others. However, during Megan's dancing career she has never had anything as serious as this but she has had torn ligaments and witnessed broken ankles from putting too much body weight on their feet whilst dancing.  I personally think this is an unsafe sport for people to be competing in but since Megan has been performing for such a long time and she has had the occur fall (accident) or torn ligament (injury) out weigh the health risk for her.  I did some research and found that for one particular survey 79.7% of dancers had multiple recorded injuries (Noon et al 2010)
