Slide Show Notes In this exercise, see if you are able to match the items on the left with appropriate actions on the right. Remember, there are all types of things you can do to help keep your workplace safe. OK Now let’s see if you matched them correctly. To maintain security, you should report suspicious mail. To stay informed, contact a safety committee member with safety ideas. To maintain good housekeeping, keep walkways and stairways clear. To identify hazards, keep alert for safety hazards, and To prevent violence, show respect for people even if they are upset.
When lifting with 2 or 3 people, please follow the same 5 steps on lifting safely. Lifting a load in cooperation with others is quite difficult. Two people should not attempt to lift a load that represents their combined capability. It is recommended that two people should only lift two thirds of their capability, and three people should lift half of their capability. Lack of coordination of such a lift can easily lead to injury for one or more members of your team. Make sure aisles and pathways are free and clear of obstacles.
Slide Show Notes Electrical hazards are present in every workplace. Here are commonsense precautions you can take to stay safe around electricity: Use plugs that fit the outlet. Do not alter plug to make it fit; Check electrical wires and insulation for equipment you use; Make sure electrical connections are tight on equipment you use; Keep material that could burn or ignite away from electrical outlets; and Keep a clear access to the electrical access panels and boxes. Here is what you should not do to stay safe around electricity: Do not overload electrical outlets; Do not fasten cords with staples, nails, or anything that could penetrate the insulation; Do not run cords through water or wet spots, and don’t touch cords with wet hands; Do not use damaged cords; and Do not use ungrounded cords or equipment, or remove the grounding prong from a three-pronged plug. Make sure you take the specific electrical precautions required in our facility. Modify this slide to the electrical requirements of your facility or office.
Slide Show Notes If you are trained and authorized to use a fire extinguisher, take these steps to respond to fires: Make sure you know where the nearest fire extinguisher is to your work area at all times. Note the location of extinguishers whenever you work in a new area, even if only temporarily. Be sure the extinguisher is designed to fight the type of fire you have. For example, only certain extinguishers can be used for electrical fires. Check the label to be sure. To use a fire extinguisher, remember the acronym “PASS”: P ull the pin; A im the hose at the base of the fire; S queeze the trigger to release fire-retardant material; and S weep the hose back and forth low across the fire. Make sure you know how to use the fire extinguishers in our facility. If you took a tour to start this session, remind participants where the fire extinguishers are located. If not, use a site map to point them out. Bring a fire extinguisher and demonstrate how to use it. Or ask a participant to come up and demonstrate it.
