Minimizing Accidents & InjuriesOn and Off the Job

Responsibility/

Productivity

Using The Hazard Recognition Approach To Accident Prevention

hazard recognition
HAZARD RECOGNITION

The systematic observation and identification of unsafe conditions, at-risk behaviors and underlying management system weaknesses that if permitted to continue may lead to employee injury or illness.

hazard recognition assessment
Hazard Recognition/Assessment
  • Stimulate Safety Awareness
  • Intended to Change Employees Overall Work Behavior
  • Trigger Mechanism To Identify All Potential Hazards On A Job Prior To Beginning Work On That Job
  • Positive Intervention & Feedback
learning objectives
LEARNING OBJECTIVES
  • Provide practical knowledge of Principles of Hazard Recognition
    • Increase awareness & observation skills
    • Help integrate into daily management & leadership activities
  • Create opportunity to apply positive intervention and feedback skills, by focusing on and identifying workplace hazards.
  • Provide value-added observations &
  • Suggestions to enhance facility safety effort
  • Understanding the importance of Controlled Energy State, by defining it, how to apply it, and what forms of energy to look for.
slide5
The Intent of Hazard Recognition/Assessment is for everyone to have adequate knowledge of the Potential Hazards of the work and work location in order to perform the job as safely as possible!!
slide6
With the emphasis on Safety at Austin Industrial, people generally know both what to do and what not to do regarding their safety. Yet, with all of this knowledge of rules and regulations and safety do’s and don’ts, PEOPLE ARE STILL GETTING HURT!!
slide7
HAZARD RECOGNITION is one element of a comprehensive approach to safety and health. To be effective, HAZARD RECOGNITION should be implemented along with the other key elements of safety and health management.

Hazard Recognition / Assessment
  • Procedure To Review Job Methods and Uncover Hazards
  • Four Steps:
    • Select The Job
    • Break The Job Down into smaller tasks
    • Identify Hazards and Potential Accidents
    • Develop Solutions

Safety Is :

Accountability: Stop accepting accidents as a cost of doing business and as uncontrollable events characteristic of the hazards of daily activity. People fail to recognize potential, assume it won’t happen to them, believe taking shortcuts (risks) is justified by success. And as a result someone gets injured.

slide33
The first minute in an area concentrate entirely on the actions of the people in the work area and ask yourself three questions:

1) Are they doing the job right?

  • Right from safety and health standpoint

2) Could they get injured or cause

damage to property?

3) Does anything look different, out

of place?

preparation for inspections
Preparation for Inspections
  • Consider:
    • What is to be Reviewed?
    • Who is going to perform?
    • Who is responsible to act on information?
    • Have people involved been trained
    • Are checklists available?
    • How often?

  • Floors (Walking & Working Surfaces)
  • Platforms / Scaffolds
  • Ladders
  • Stairs
  • Ventilation
  • Lighting
  • Ergonomic Factors
slide36
Observation Techniques
    • Factual observation (what you see is probably not what you “thought” you saw)
    • First minute --- Best picture of reality
    • Observe behavior and people
    • Looks Like Duck--Quacks Like Duck--Probably is a Duck
slide37
Traditional safety strategies, including protective equipment, job redesign, procedures, campaigns, motivational programs and awards--although they have had success in reducing accidents and injuries in the past--have been yielding diminishing returns. Improved strategies will continue to only marginally increase occupational safety and health.
slide38
A greater effect may be achieved by directly addressing personal risk behaviors. To begin, we asked the following question: WHICH BASIC HUMAN BEHAVIORS, IF EFFECTIVELY MANAGED, WILL SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE WORKPLACE ACCIDENTS AND INJURIES?
purpose of hazard recognition process
Purpose of Hazard Recognition Process

To make participants aware of their role and responsibility for the safety of themselves, each other, in order to empower them to reduce the number and severity of accidents and injuries on and off the job.
