The idea of hiring a professional to check any electrical equipment may be costly; however, what is important is preventing fires and/ or casualties.  When on work experience, the company employed a qualified person to check all equipment.  He had an unbiased view and often found hazards more readily than those working in the company.  It is a wise idea to hire a professional to check all electrical equipment.

Leonard Te Wierik's insight:

As shown 5 different people working in different places and environments.  The pictures would demonstrate working on a construction site the requirements of wearing PPE clothing is an essential part on a construction site.  As these pictures demonstrates that they don't have the required clothing this would indicate an OHS issue.  Other Ohs issues would be working outside too long dehydration occurs and would need essential fluids in the body and could be an issue if the workers do not keep themselves hydrated.  Safety hard hats is essential in the workplace and it clearly shows these pictures do not have any.  Safety visors would be necessary on a construction site and this could also be a OHS issue.

When you have been working in the same job for many years it’s easy to get complacent about some of the most common hazards in your field; manual handling for example.  John often has to lift and move large objects around and without using the correct manual handling techniques he puts himself at risk of serious back, neck and leg injury. 

 

Today he has been tasked with reorganising the workshop and tool shed.  With the help of his guardian angel he makes sure to use trolleys, mechanical devices or a friend to help move the largest and most awkward objects.  When lifting items by himself he keeps his back straight and uses his legs.  He holds the objects close to his body and ensures he doesn’t twist or turn in the process.  When replacing the items in the workshop he puts as much as he can up off the floor and below eye level.  He also always makes sure he wears appropriate PPE like gloves, long trousers, boots and safety glasses. 

 

Guardian Angel: 3

Hazard: 0

Earlier in my OHS quest we visited the career of a Store Person/ Union Delegate Shane Brown. Shane’s job entails a number of factors that expose him and other employees to multiple safety risks.

 

Electrical hazards are present in most workplaces within Australia. It is important to identify all electrical hazard that exist within the workplace to reduce the potential exposure to the risk as there is a high potential for serious consequences if direct contact with electricity is made. In warehouse environments it is common for Store Persons to be exposed to electrical plant and equipent on a regular basis. Identification and inspection of electrical sources along with environmnetal awareness is regularly undertaken to ensure that that underlying hazards are mitigated before exposure is possible. A proactive approach, as apposed to a reactive approach is required as the result of an electrical incident has often proven to be fatal. Relelvant understanding is required whilst working  on and around electrical equipment to enable a safe work place and additional information provided by the above link will enable an understanding of requiremnts for individuals and bussinesses to reduce inherant risk.
