Safety, Health and Environment

T

he Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) policy is one that has been adopted by many companies since the 1960s. The SHE policy has two general objectives; prevention of incidents or accidents that might result from abnormal operating conditions on the one hand and reduction of

adverse effects that result from normal operating conditions on the other hand. Maintaining a safe environment reflects a level of compassion and vigilance for patient welfare that is as important as any other aspect of competent health care. The way to improve safety is to learn about causes of error and use this knowledge

to design systems of care. As a result, researchers, policymakers, and providers have intensified their efforts to understand and change organizational conditions, components, and processes of health care systems as they relate to patient safety. Companies that aspire to be better environmental stewards invest in strong

environmental, health and safety management, otherwise known as EHS. From an environmental standpoint, it involves creating a systematic approach to managing waste, complying with environmental regulations, or reducing the company’s carbon footprint. Companies such as BCL mine, Water Utilities Corporation are some of those that have adopted the SHE policy in order to care for their environment and ensure safety for all. For example, fire, explosion and release of harmful substances into the environment or the work area must be prevented. Also action must be taken to reduce a company’s environmental impact under normal operating conditions (like reducing the company’s carbon footprint) and to prevent workers from developing work related diseases. Regulatory requirements play an important role in both approaches and consequently, SHE managers must identify and understand relevant SHE regulations, the implications of which must be communicated to top management (the board of directors) so the company can implement suitable measures. SHE safety tips Employers should select adequate flooring (e.g., cement, ceramic tile or another material), as different types of flooring hold up better under certain conditions. Clear clutter; a cluttered workplace can lead to ergonomics issues and possible injuries because

workers have less space to move. When an area is cluttered, you’re going to likely have a cut or laceration injury. You’re not going to have as much room to set up your workstation like you should and move around. You’re going to be twisting your body rather than moving your whole body. Control dust; dust accumulation of more than 1/32 of an inch or 0.8 millimeters covering at least 5 percent of a room’s surface poses a significant explosion hazard according to the fire department. Eliminate all fire hazards; employees are responsible for keeping unnecessary combustible materials from accumulating in the work area. Combustible waste should be “stored in covered metal receptacles and disposed of daily. Protective equipment; do not access installations and perform work without wearing general or taskspecific personal protective equipment (PPE). Collective protection is preferred. Individual protection completes preventive measures already taken. Do not work at heights without a safety harness when there is no collective protective equipment. Work at heights is performed on fixed or mobile platforms with a guardrail designed for the task at hand. Work on rooftops (buildings, reservoirs) is performed only after the roof’s solidity has been checked and appropriate protection has been set up. Ladders are a means of access only; their use must remain exceptional.

Road and personal safety tips

T

he hustle and bustle of shopping, travelling and partying makes this

season a time when people are more likely to have accidents than any other time of the year. Being robbed, injured or getting in an accident

can happen at any time of the year but with the festive season drawing nearer, extra precautions must be taken. To help you make this holiday

S3 PAGE T7

season a safe and happy one, here are some festive season safety tips to consider. Road safety and security Don’t drink and drive, slow down and wear your seat belt at all times. As this is the season of festivities, fatality rates caused by drunk driving are likely to be on the increase. With holiday parties and functions to attend, Police statistics have shown that this is the time when most fatalities caused by drunken driving occurs because most people are in a hurry to wrap up their shopping while others hop from one party to another while drinking and driving. If you’re going to a holiday party and plan to indulge an alcoholic drink or two, it is advisable that you do not drive, rather make plans for a safer alternative to get home like getting a designated driver or a cab. It is also important to always have an emergency car kit with you in case of an emergency. This will also protect you and keep you safer if you happen to have an accident on the road. Before any travel plans can be made, be sure to check the life span of your tyres and change them if necessary. Service checks on your car before getting on the road are necessary and

for safety be sure to have lock nuts on all your tyre wheels. Personal safety Beware of scam artists, this is their season so be very careful of who you trust with your money. ATM fraud, whether physical or electronical appears to be gaining momentum so it is important to take precautions to make sure you don’t become victim to this scam. If the ATM is acting strange, move on and use a different one, it could be an innocent technical error but it is better to be safe than sorry. Avoid sharing your personal and financial information with other sources through emails or over the phone, rather go to the bank personally if you need to confirm something about your bank account. Avoid carrying chunks of money around.

Don’t drink and drive, slow down and wear your seat belt at all times. As this is the season of festivities, fatality rates caused by drunk driving are likely to be on the increase

Home Security during the festive season GOSEGO MOTSUMI

W

ith the festive season drawing closer, beefing up home security becomes one of the important factors that need to be considered. Break ins occur at an alarming rate during the festive season as the culprits know that it is the time when most people are away on traveling. When you leave your home, whether for a quick weekend getaway or a vacation it is important that every traveler take certain key steps to keep their homes safe. Basic preventative measures can be taken to avoid home invasions even if it is not during the festive season.

All home security systems work on the same basic principle of securing entry points, like doors and windows as well as interior space containing valuables like art, computers and coin collections. Home security systems work on the concept of securing entry points with motion sensors, high detectable alarm and surveillance cameras. When an intrusion occurs the security alarm is loud enough for neighbors to hear, they alert people inside the house that a problem occurred and they are also loud enough to send a burglar running. The motion sensors when armed protect a given space by creating an invisible zone that cannot be breached without sounding an alarm.

WEDNESDAY 25 NOVEMBERTHE-BOTSWANA 01 DECEMBER 2015 THE B-OTSWANA GAZETTE GAZETTE WEDNESDAY 25 NOVEMBER 01 DECEMBER 2015 These are typically used to protect rooms containing valuables, as well as areas less frequented in larger homes. Surveillance cameras can be used in several different ways as part of an overall security system. However, other security measures that can be used on entry points include burglar doors and window frames. Neighborhood watch Another simple way of ensuring home safety is through the neighborhood watch initiative, a subscription service that allows anyone who notices anything amiss about your home to notify you while you are away. Trusted neighbors or friends can do random home check-ups on your home. He or she should also have your contact information and a copy of your itinerary in case of emergencies. Not tipping off criminals on the web In a world where it seems everyone

is constantly updating people about their whereabouts on social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, it is important to stop and think who could be reading the information. The anonymity of the internet can encourage us to share personal information without fully realizing that there may be hundreds of complete strangers receiving our daily updates. And giving updates about your traveling plans can lead to a home break in as the culprits are well informed of your whereabouts and how much time they have. Purchase a light switch timer Most people prefer to leave the light on throughout their entire vacation in an effort to make it look like someone is home but it does not work out as it might look odd and an easy tip off for burglars as the lights would also be blazing throughout the day and a high electricity bill will follow. Instead, purchase a light switch timer that can turn your lights on and off automatically according to a programmed schedule. Criminals keeping an eye on your house will notice lights flipping on and off, and will probably assume someone is doing the flipping. Remove your spare key Throughout the year some people may opt to hide a spare key on the porch incase they lose or forget the other key. If a criminal figures out you are away on vacation, it’s likely that he or she will check in random hiding spots for a spare key. So it is important to remove the spare key before from the hiding place before you leave for your vacation.
