  3. 3. Current Safety Procedures • Just because we’re creatives, doesn’t mean we don’t know or care about safety • Becasue we’re a legit business, we actually have to follow some safety guidelines • . . . And so do you. If you want to continue working here. So . . .

Poor posture – yes, we’re being just like your mother. But your significant other will be thankful. • 5. Eyestrain from computer use • 6. Computer-related overuse injuries of the hand or arm (a form of RSI no doubt)
  7. 7. 10 Important Existing & Potential Hazards in the Studio: • 7. Paper cuts – For real. They happen. You don’t want them, and we don’t you to have them. Avoid them watch how you handle paper people! • 8. Obesity. Ok, we didn‘t want to bring it up, but there it is. It‘s true, you can get fat from working here.

  8. 8. 10 Important Existing & Potential Hazards in the Studio: • 9. Burning of the tongue – it happens more than one would think – repeatedly. • 10.

  9. 9. A Procedure for Controlling these Risks: • Keep on your toes- in all senses of the phrase • Figuratively: office space awareness is crucial. Don’t pretend this is the school yard. It matters what you sat and do – and don’t do. So, always, remember where you are and do the right thing. • Literally- it helps circulation to move your extremities - so wiggle them toes – and get up on them every once in a while : )
  10. 10. Reporting Risks and Incidents: • Talk to Montgomery Burns. He is after all the safety rep. • Begin reporting incidents verbally with Mr. Burns • Secondly submit a written account of the incident • It’s good to have this documented for our records and yours

And if you think we don’t, then step back because there’s 50 little interns that’ll be happy to have your job. • Actually we are in full compliance. And other interns may come in various sizes other than “little”
  12. 12. Emergencies (Fire, Injury, Assault, Power-Outs) • Run! That’s right. We want people to mistake this place for a race track!

  13. 13. Responsibilities of Employers • • • • • • • • • Obtain up-to-date Materials Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) from their suppliers of hazardous substances and ensure that this information is available to workers. Keep a register of all hazardous substances. Ensure that all chemical storage containers are suitable for the substance they contain and are correctly stored and labelled. Provide information, instruction and training to employees or contractors who could be exposed to hazardous substances. Monitor exposure levels and provide health surveillance where necessary. Assess and control all risks to employees or other persons who could be exposed to hazardous substances. Maintain records of all risk assessment reports, instruction and training associated with hazardous substances. Advise the local emergency service organisation about storage, location and quantities of any hazardous or dangerous substances kept on-site. You'll find more information on staff training and risk control in The answer section.
  14. 14. Responsibilities of Employees • Employees must cooperate with their employers in the action taken to comply with the Act or Regulations. In particular, they should use or apply control measures as required and should cooperate with assessments, training programs and other action taken to protect health and safety. • Employees who become aware of any situation or incident that could be a source of danger to themselves or any other person must act immediately to protect their health and safety, and report the matter to the employer or relevant health and safety representative.
  15. 15. Hazard Signs & Safety Symbols • Here’s the situation. We probably won’t have hazardous events here. But just in case, and because it’s the law, we have to talk about it. • More realistically you’ll encounter hazards on an outside job.
