  • 1. Assist employees in Recognizing, Reporting, & correcting potential Occupational Safety and Health problems. 2. This programprovides an avenue for employee feedback concerning safety without reprisals.
  • *1. On the job injuries that are not life threatening, are treated at the Industrial & Sports Medical Center in San Marcos off Nordahl 2. Earthquake safety: Buildings here at San Marcos are new& built according to the recommended standard. 3. The IIPP itself was implemented because of growing concerns that the person most affected by unsafe or unhealthy work-sites , had the least input and authority to correct the problems. 4. Heaters only UL( Underwriters Laboratory) approved . Caution in tipping over and causing burns 5. Cooking Many fires have occurred in officesor kitchenette areas because of bad equipment or unattended operations.
  • In the 1930’s H.W. Heinrich wrote the first book on loss control in this country. In his survey of over 10,000 incidents, Heinrich found that an important ratio was established. The same factors that cause a near miss on one occasion can, in a future incident, result in a major injury or fatality.
  • To move from a reactive approach (after an occurrence) to a proactive approach (prevention) report all incidents. Address all incidents to control and prevent serious incidents. Safety inspections also help improve safety performance proactively by eliminating or reducing hazards that contribute to injuries, illnesses and property damage.
  • 1. Although it often seems as if personal computers have been around forever, they are still less than two decades old 2. Continuous occurrences of muscle strains, Cumulative trauma disorders, tendonitis and nerve problems 3. Through design essentially everything could be done without injury . But remember “The next movement is the best ergonomics movement” ______ 2. “NEXT OVERHEAD” The Poster Child of ergonomics notice the neutral position , feet flat on the floor . You should be able to have a coffee cup resting on your knee. Elbows about 90 degrees. Chair adjusted properly. Wrists should be on wrist rests when they are indeed resting. Hands should be neutral and fingers should act like spiders on the keyboard. 3. Too close to the video display terminal causes Glare and eye strain which contribute to the loss of peripheral orientation . This causes quesy or nausea feeling . Top of the screen should be at eye level to reduce neck strain
  • 1. Remember RM&S does ergonomic evaluations of your personal work station. Contact Debbie High to schedule. 2. Vary your work routine every 1- 2 hours , and look at distant objects more than 20 feet away . This excercises the muscles in your eyes. *3. To prevent injuries consult a physician about Exercises cause if you hear any cracking I don’t do chiropractic work. Finger stretches , Back relaxer, shoulder roll, neck stretches middle- upper back stretches.
  • *1. CTS: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome very common condition. Too much pressure is put on a nerve(median ) that runs through your wrist. Highly treatable if diagnosed early. Highest incidence of workers comp cases 2. Edema (fluid retention), Pregnancy, steroids , fracture can cause restriction to the nerve. 3. Try to keep your wrists in neutral/straight positions,watch your grip, minimize repetition , rest your hands, conditioning exercises .
  • 1. Why bring this up.. This is an educational and research institution. Therefore such hazards exist. 2 . Use Good Hygienic work practices. 3. All Biohazardous materials containers must be identified with the international biohazard symbol to serve as a warning to others 4. CHP For any hazardous operation there should be standard operating procedures developed and training offered by the supervisor or EH. This training should be documented d and maintained by your employer. 5. State the hazardous properties and chemical makeup and other pertinent information regarding a particular chemical. Copies of MSDSs for all hazardous substances for which faculty, staff, or students may be exposed are located at:University Services Building & Science Hall. 7. For ex. In 1997 At Emory University in Atlanta, a22 yr old Tech experienced a drop of Monkey bodily fluid splashed in her eye. The Technician died 2 months later from being infected with the herpes B virus. The fines to this university by OSHA have gone over the $100,000 mark
  • 1. Who enforces this .. Well there aren’t any cigarette cops per se . It is strictly policy designated by the president and in accordance with state law
  • Why Was I here? 1. To define our role and responsibilities as EH and explain how we can be of service to you . You are considered the consumer of our product ...and our product is your welfare.
