Emergency plans for tornado

Emergency plans for tornado

  • Code Blue

  • Stay with your instructor at all times

  • Proceed to the administrative hallway in the building

  • Talk in low tones

  • Stay seated


Emergency plans for fire

Emergency Plans for fire

  • Code Red

  • Stay with your instructor

  • Follow directions

  • Exit through the front doors of the building and stay on the grass!

  • Return to the classroom only when instructed to do so by higher authorities.


Emergency plans for lockdown

Emergency plans for lockdown

  • Turn off the lights

  • Proceed quickly and quietly to the storage room.

  • Sit and wait for instructions before we exit– Stay out of sight!


Ergonomics defined

Ergonomics defined

  • The study of the relationship between workers and their work environments.

  • Combination of two Greek words:

    “Ergos” = work

    “Numos” = natural law or system

  • Uses many different sciences to help us understand effects of the job on the worker.


Proper lifting procedures

Proper lifting procedures

  • Size up your work load

  • Wide stable base of support

  • Get a good grip

  • Use the power position

  • Get close to the load

  • Don’t twist or jerk

  • Use your legs, not your back!

  • Get help if you need it!


Proper lifting illustrations

Proper Lifting illustrations

Always use your legs, not your back!


Five causes of most back injuries

five causes of most back injuries

  • Posture

  • Body Mechanics/Work Habits

  • Stressful Living

  • Loss of Flexibility

  • Poor Conditioning


Risk factors for back injury risk factors for back injury risk factors for back injuries

Risk Factors for Back InjuryRisk Factors for Back Injuryrisk factors for back injuries

Try to avoid:

  • Lifting with your back bowed out.

  • Bending and reaching with your back bowed out.

  • Slouched sitting.

  • Twisting or jerking movements.

  • Lack of proper rest.

  • Obesity and poor nutrition.

Main causes of ergonomic problems

Main causes of ergonomic problems

Avoid the following:

  • Awkward posture

  • Frequent repetitive motion tasks

  • Stress at workplace

  • Vibrations

  • Forceful movements

  • Poor workplace setup

  • Sitting in same posture for continuous long hours

  • Lower back support is inadequate


Specific ergonomic physical problems cvs

Specific ergonomic physical problems - CVS

  • Computer Vision Syndrome

  • Symptoms related to vision here:

    • Visual fatigue

    • Blurred or double vision

    • Burning and watering eyes

    • Headaches and frequent changes in prescription glasses

  • American Optometric Association defines, C.V.S as “A complex of eye and vision problems which are experienced during and related to computer use.”


Carpal tunnel syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome

When the protective lining of the tendons within the carpal tunnel inflamed and swell or when the ligament that forms the roof becomes thicker and broader leads to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

  • Interruption of Sleep with Hands Numbness and in Pain

  • Frequent Pain in Hand and Wrist

  • Neck or shoulder pain on same side as hand discomfort.

  • Poor Circulation of blood in Hands there by Hands falling asleep

  • Weakness in Hand and Wrist- Pain Radiating up the Forearm

  • Cold Hands

  • Forearms warm and Loss of Grip Strength by Fore arms

  • Loss of Feeling in Fingers and Thumb

  • Dropping Objects especially small objects.

OSHA

  • Occupational Safety and Health Administration

  • Mission – to assure the safety and health of America’s workers by setting and enforcing standards; providing training, outreach, and education; establishing partnerships; and encouraging continual improvement in workplace safety and health.


Osha services

OSHA Services

  • Approximately 1,200 inspectors, complaint discrimination investigators, engineers, physicians, educators, standards writers, and other technical and support personnel spread over more than 200 offices across the nation.

  • This staff establishes protective standards, enforces those standards, and reaches out to employers and employees through technical assistance and consultation programs.


Osha s link to ergonomic issues

OSHA’s link to ergonomic issues:

General Duty Clause Section 5.a.1 of OSHA Act

“Furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death of serious physical harm to his employees.”


What you need to know about osha

What you need to know about OSHA

  • Founded in 1971

  • Agency that sets and enforces standards for safe and healthful working conditions

  • To discourage companies from NOT following guidelines, OSHA will make random inspections to ensure compliance.

  • Nearly ALL employees are subject to OSHA standards.


Not in compliance with osha standards

Not in compliance with OSHA Standards?

  • Fines – ranging from small to very large.

  • OSHA could order a “cease and desist” – the entire company and it’s operations shut down.


Electrostatic discharge

Electrostatic discharge

  • A build-up of charge difference between a person and an object, often caused by friction between synthetic materials, or electronic equipment (such as TV screens), usually felt as a “shock” when the statically charged person touches a grounded object.

  • This usually pertains to a person getting shocked while working with the inside of a computer. It can cause severe damage to your computer.


Staying safe

Staying Safe

  • Make sure you follow the guidelines in this presentation to avoid health risks and other physical threats associated with the computer lab.
