  • I. Title Slide and Introduction A. This presentation discusses the framework of a typical Safety Program. Specific job hazards and relevant training needs will be identified by the students.
  • I. B. Safety Program Objectives 1. Protect employees from injury & illness Protect supervisors and employees from liability and losses 2. Reduce injuries and costs: Direct / immediate costs - lost efficiency, Workers’ Comp. claims, property damage, etc... Indirect / delayed costs - worker disability, employee morale, task avoidance, etc.. 3. Comply with regulations: OSHA, Dept. of Labor & Employment Security, FDEP, & others 4. Reduce lost time: such as sick leave and supervisor’s time for dealing with injuries and illnesses. 5. Provide good public image: Employer loses credibility with the public if we cannot keep our own employees safe in their work environment.
  • I. C. Safety Policies, Procedures, & Rules: Reasons for a Safety Policy 1. Establishes standardized rules & procedures - provides consistency throughout 2. Responsibility & accountability are tools for prevention and correction of safety problems 3. The remaining three components are ongoing, regular parts of supervisory duties.
  • III. B. The FL Division of Safety and Rule 38I-15.005, F.A.C. 1. Requirements of the Division and the Rule include: - management involvement - a Safety Committee with regular duties - safety & health training , both initially and as needed throughout employment - first aid procedures - accident investigation procedures - recordkeeping on training, accidents, etc.. - establishment of safety rules, policies, and practices C. The Health and Safety Manual addresses the required items. “ Prevention of occupational-induced injuries and illnesses is of such consequence that it will be given precedence over operating productivity”
  • VI. Component 5: Accident Reporting and Investigation A. Why be Concerned with Accidents? 1. Reasons previously discussed, including moral obligation, liability, public image 2. Accidents can indicate lack of compliance with regulatory requirements 3. Accident prevention and Loss control Management are closely tied. Accidents cause losses in employee work time, supervisory time, property loss or damage, and other costs
  • III. Component 2: Written Policies and Procedures A. Occupational Safety and Health Act The General Duty Requirement statement applies to all.
  • VI. C. Safety Performance Deficiencies that contribute to Accidents 1. Physical deficiencies - poor eyesight - impaired hearing - degenerative back condition - gait problems or coordination - other conditions that may impair performance (asthma, arthritis, epilepsy, etc...) NOTE: Employees should recognize what chronic or intermittent conditions they may have that could increase the risk of accident on the job, and they should discuss such issues with their supervisors. Supervisors must take care that their efforts to protect employees with impairments do not result in discrimination prohibited by the Americans with Disabilities Act. 2. Knowledge deficiencies - lack of skills or failure to do the job with proper procedures or at the right time - calls for retraining the employee, and possibly review of the supervisor’s training technique
  • VI. C. Safety Performance Deficiencies that contribute to Accidents, cont. 3. Execution deficiencies - lack of supervisory feedback when a job is improperly done - employee does not recognize the consequences to self and others 4. Organizational deficiencies - lack of preparation (Safety Program not implemented) - failure to address complex issues - inability to create or manage organizational change
  • VI. D. Accident Causation: Case Study 1. Case study of ????????????????????????? 2. Findings: Causes of Accidents by Type of Deficiency - 21% of accidents were due to physical performance deficiencies of employees - 21% of accidents were due to unsafe conditions - 58% of accidents were due to execution deficiencies (lack of feedback, failure of employee to recognize consequences, lack of management/organizational preparation or issue resolution) 3. Findings: Quality of Supervisory Investigation - poor in 55% of cases - fair in 27% of cases THESE NUMBERS INDICATE AN - good in 18% of cases EXECUTION DEFICIENCY
  • VI. C. Accident Causation: How to Recognize Problems One of the questions on the supervisors’ Accident Report Form asks what factors contributed to the accident - supervisors should be prepared to recognize these types of problems: 1. Unsafe acts or behaviors - failure or refusal to wear Personal Protective Equipment - using defective tools or equipment - tampering with safety devices or making them inoperable - working on equipment that is still moving or rotating
  • VI. B. Accident Causation: How to Recognize Problems 2. Unsafe Conditions - inadequate guarding of moving parts, lack of railings or barriers - unsafe design or construction - unsafe illumination/lighting - too bright, too dim. too uneven or directional - hazardous arrangement of equipment, tools, furniture, wires, etc..
  • VI. B. Accident Causation: How to Recognize Problems 3. Acts of God - lightning striking employee, equipment, or vicinity - natural disasters such as hurricanes, flooding, etc..
  • VI. D. Accident Causation: Specific Execution Deficiencies
  • V. C. Safety Management (Behavioral Management) - Ongoing Follow-up 1. Supervisors should be alert for critical behaviors that increase risk. Such behaviors may develop as a result of either too little or too much familiarity with the task or equipment. 2. Supervisor measures safety performance through observation of accident rates, execution of procedures, equipment condition, or other indicators 3. Supervisor provides both positive and negative performance feedback and additional training needed by the employee
  • II. Component 1: Management Commitment A. Organizational Responsibilities 1. The organization must: - allocate responsible roles to specific positions in the organizational structure - state and follow through on support of the Safety Program - designate a Safety Program Coordinator - train supervisors - provide resources for training employees - initiated supervisor training
  • II. B. Management Responsibilities 1. Management must: - commit funding - assign authority and responsibility - allow employee & supervisor time expenditures for the Safety Program to function - commit to a Safety Policy - actively support the Safety Program 2. The Employer should: - provided funding for resources, equipment, and supplies - defined duties & tasks for specific positions - allocated time for annual Safety Awareness Days & safety program development - planned to adopt a Health and Safety Manual, which states: “ is a basic requirement that each supervisor make the safety of all employees an integral part of their regular management function”
  • III. D. Occupational Safety Regulations that apply 1. Federal OSHA Act of 1970 2. Florida Division of Safety created in 1993, adopted OSHA rules in 1995 3. National, state, and local fire codes - The SED Office Emergency Bill has been distributed. It details fire and other emergency procedures. 4. American National Standards (ANSI) dealing with personal protective equipment (PPE) 5. Federal & state environmental regulations
  • III. F. Supervisor Responsibilities under a Safety Program 1. Implement safety rules and procedures at all levels: job-specific, Program Area-specific, and Agency-wide 2. Train employees: some specific training topics are detailed in the manual; supervisors must document training as described in the manual 3. Conduct safety inspections quarterly or more often as needed 4. Report all accidents and conduct accident investigations per the manual 5. Develop a Job Hazard Analysis (Job Safety Analysis) for each task supervised and inform employees in writing of hidden dangers 6. Determine employee ability to operate equipment safely , and be alert to daily variations caused by cold medications, fatigue, stress, etc. 7. Hold safety meetings with their sections on a continual basis. 8. Discuss safety with each employee and be receptive to concerns and comments.

Job Safety Analysis: Management Guidance to be Provided to Supervisors 1. Selecting jobs to be analyzed 2. Establishing a timetable for completion and checking progress 3. Providing guidance on specific questions, providing training for supervisors 4. Reviewing, approving, and distributing JSAs
  • IV. E. Types of Hazard Control Strategies 1. Develop written Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) that incorporate safety and make employee compliance mandatory 2. Engineering hazard control into design - this is the most effective approach because it does not depend on employee alertness, skill, or knowledge 3. Training must prepare employees to recognize and avoid hazards in performing their jobs, with cross-training between Sections such as Solid Waste and Hazardous Waste.
  • V. Component 4: Employee Safety Training Program A. Identify Who Needs Training 1. New or transfer employees or those with new tasks, equipment, or procedures 2. Employees engaged in hazardous operations 3. Problematic employees identified by their poor safety performance or relevant factors B. Conducting Safety Training 1.
