  1. 1. NEO Presentation
  2. 2. Bloodborne Pathogens <ul><li>What are Bloodborne Pathogens? </li></ul><ul><li>Bloodborne pathogens are micro-organisms that can cause disease when transmitted from an infected individual to another individual through blood and certain body fluids. They are capable of causing serious illness and death. The most common illnesses are Hepatitis B (HBV) and Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS). </li></ul><ul><li>What you should do: </li></ul><ul><li>Routinely check equipment and decontaminate it prior to use, storage, or maintenance. </li></ul><ul><li>Wash your hands after you remove your work gloves, as soon as possible after skin contact with blood or other potentially infectious materials occurs. </li></ul><ul><li>Recapping, removing, or bending needles is prohibited unless you can demonstrate that no alternative is feasible or that such action is required by a specific medical procedure. When recapping, bending, or removing contaminated needles (as required by a medical procedure), this too must be done by mechanical means, such as the use of forceps, or a one-handed technique. </li></ul><ul><li>Shearing or breaking contaminated needles is not permitted. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Convenience Store Security <ul><li>Employee Training </li></ul><ul><li>Define your territory with landscaping, fences and signs discourages outsiders by defining private space, and it allows you to see intruders. This way, you can tell if people are there to shop or to loiter. </li></ul><ul><li>If graffiti shows up on your premises, take a picture of it for the police, and have it removed immediately. </li></ul><ul><li>Show that your store is well-managed. </li></ul><ul><li>Keep the store and parking lot neat, clean, and free of litter. The property and store are designed for convenience to customers, but do not make it too convenience for criminals. </li></ul><ul><li>Limit the number of entrances and exits to the store and the parking lot. </li></ul><ul><li>Close off some parking lot entrances and doors at night. </li></ul><ul><li>Install gates, locks, or turnstiles. Surveillance is the use of physical features, such as electrical and mechanical devices, to maximize visibility. People can be your best form of crime deterrence. Surveillance creates a risk of detection for intruders and makes legitimate users feel safe. </li></ul><ul><li>Use lighting both inside and out. </li></ul><ul><li>Remove signs from windows to provide clear lines of visibility to the cashier. </li></ul><ul><li>Move displays that block visibility to the cashier from the outside. </li></ul><ul><li>Remember that people are the best form of surveillance. </li></ul><ul><li>Be alert to your surroundings and report any problems. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Convenience Store Security <ul><li>Controlling your cash </li></ul><ul><li>One of the most important steps you can take to prevent robbery and reduce losses is by controlling your cash. </li></ul><ul><li>Use a drop safe. </li></ul><ul><li>Post signs stating that the amount of cash on hand is limited. </li></ul><ul><li>Keep the cash in registers low. Maintain adequate lighting, within and outside the store, to make the store less appealing to a potential robber because then he is more likely to be seen. We say “he” because over 90% of robberies are by males. Improving visibility is important in preventing robbery in the following ways: </li></ul><ul><li>Employees should be able to see their surroundings. </li></ul><ul><li>People outside the store, including police, should be able to see into the store. </li></ul><ul><li>Keep windows clear of signs and merchandise. </li></ul><ul><li>Keep shelving low. </li></ul><ul><li>Mirrors can help too. </li></ul><ul><li>Since escape routes are so important to robbers, </li></ul><ul><li>try to make escape difficult by fencing the property </li></ul><ul><li>and limiting the number of entrances and exits. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Convenience Store Security <ul><li>Steps to safeguard your employees and customers. </li></ul><ul><li>Follow this advice about suspicious behavior in any situations. </li></ul><ul><li>Take every threat seriously. </li></ul><ul><li>If something seems wrong, it probably is. </li></ul><ul><li>Call management to report any suspicious activity, or police when necessary. </li></ul><ul><li>Watch for suspicious behavior, not suspicious people. </li></ul><ul><li>Signs of possibly suspicious behavior: </li></ul><ul><li>Parking for an unusual length of time in or near </li></ul><ul><li>the parking lot. </li></ul><ul><li>Coming into the store, but does not make a purchase. </li></ul><ul><li>Asking an employee’s nationality. </li></ul><ul><li>Returning to the store after having been in there earlier. </li></ul><ul><li>Seeming agitated or raising their voice. </li></ul><ul><li>Making inflammatory or derogatory remarks. </li></ul><ul><li>Verbally or physically threatening employees or customers. </li></ul><ul><li>If a threatening note, sign, message, or recorded message is </li></ul><ul><li>left at the location, save it and report it to the police. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Hand Tools <ul><li>Remove defective tools from service. </li></ul><ul><li>When not in use, place tools where they will not create a hazard. </li></ul><ul><li>Handles of all tools should be smooth, without sharp edges or </li></ul><ul><li>splinters, and should be firmly attached to the tool. </li></ul><ul><li>Heads of hammers, sledges, and cold chisels should be dressed </li></ul><ul><li>or ground as they begin to mushroom or crack. </li></ul><ul><li>Maintain the cutting edges of tools in a uniformly sharp condition </li></ul><ul><li>to eliminate the additional hazard resulting from the erratic resistance of the dulled </li></ul><ul><li>edges. </li></ul><ul><li>Use heavy leather holsters, guards, or equivalent protection (used for sharp-edged or sharp-pointed tools) when carried on your person. </li></ul><ul><li>Use appropriate protective equipment such as gloves, aprons, and leg guards to protect against accidental cuts. </li></ul><ul><li>Select the correct tool for the job. </li></ul><ul><li>When climbing, do not carry tools in your hands other than those assisting climb. </li></ul><ul><li>Maintain a safe working distance from other workers when using hand tools. </li></ul><ul><li>Do not throw or drop tools from heights unless warning has been given and the ground area is clear. </li></ul><ul><li>Pole pruners, pole saws, and other similar tools should be equipped with wood or nonmetallic poles. The actuating cord should be of non-conducting material. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Hand Tools <ul><li>When inserting a blade in a bow-saw frame, keep your hands and fingers in the clear when the tension lever snaps into or against the saw frame. When removing a bow-saw blade from the frame, stay clear of the blade. </li></ul><ul><li>Chopping tools are to be swung away from the feet, legs, and body, using the minimum power practical for control. Do not use chopping tools while working aloft. </li></ul><ul><li>Chopping tools are not to be driven as wedges or used to drive metal wedges. </li></ul><ul><li>Cover the bit of injector tools with a shield when not in use. </li></ul><ul><li>Injectors are to be laid flat on the ground when not in use. </li></ul><ul><li>Do not carry the injector on your shoulders. Instead carry it by the loop handle on the downhill side, with the bit properly shielded and facing to the rear. </li></ul><ul><li>The blade of grub hoes, mattocks and picks are to be tight fitting and wedged so that it cannot slide down the handle. </li></ul><ul><li>When swinging grub hoes, mattocks, and picks, have a secure grip and footing. </li></ul><ul><li>Cant hooks, cant dogs, longs, and carrying bars should be firmly set before applying pressure. </li></ul><ul><li>Stand to the rear and uphill when rolling logs. </li></ul><ul><li>Only wood, plastic, or soft-metal wedges will be used with power saws. </li></ul><ul><li>Wood-handled chisels should be protected with a ferrule on the </li></ul><ul><li>striking end. </li></ul><ul><li>Use wood, rubber or high-impact plastic mauls, sledges, or hammers </li></ul><ul><li>when striking wood-handled chisels or gouges. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Lifting <ul><li>Don't take a chance on a painful, expensive back injury. Take time to do the job right. </li></ul><ul><li>Lifting Techniques </li></ul><ul><li>Back injury is the leading lost work time injury in industry, and back injuries are all too common. These injuries are usually painful and can be long lasting and expensive. Here are some suggestions to help avoid back injuries: </li></ul><ul><li>Lift only loads you can safely handle. </li></ul><ul><li>Establish good footing. </li></ul><ul><li>Do not reach over other objects to lift. Move objects out of the way to get to the one you want. </li></ul><ul><li>Bend at your knees as you grasp the object. </li></ul><ul><li>Keep your back straight. </li></ul><ul><li>Get a full hand grip. </li></ul><ul><li>Lift by straightening the legs. </li></ul><ul><li>Lift with the load close to your body & slowly. </li></ul><ul><li>When lifting and turning, avoid twisting the body at </li></ul><ul><li>the waist.
