People Safety

Every year millions workplace/ industrial accidents occur which result in loss of production time equivalent to millions of man hours, machine hours etc.
Of these about one-fifth production time is lost by those actually injured due to temporary and permanent disablement and the remaining production time is lost by fellow operators/ people in helping the injured, in taking care of the damage caused by accident etc. the loss to the industrial unit would appear much more alarming when death cases due to accidents are considered.
Our Work Place Safety Services are set of elements of cross-disciplinary areas concerned with protecting the safety, health and welfare of people engaged at workplace. It is therefore essential to identify/examine the causes of industrial accidents and take following steps to control them-
• Elimination if possible of the causes of accidents by spreading awareness in the organization creating safety culture.
• If it is not possible to eliminate the cause of accidents, make arrangements to shield the hazardous place by guards, enclosures or similar arrangements.

First Aid
First aid is the assistance given to any person suffering a sudden illness or injury, with care provided to preserve life, prevent the condition from worsening, or to promote recovery. It includes initial intervention in a serious condition prior to professional medical help being available, such as performing CPR while awaiting an ambulance, as well as the complete treatment of minor conditions, such as applying a plaster to a cut. The key guiding principles and purpose of first aid, is often given in the mnemonic "3 Ps". These three points govern all the actions undertaken by a first aider.
  • Prevent further injury
  • Preserve life
  • Promote recovery

Electrical Safety
Working with electricity can be dangerous. Engineers, electricians, and other professionals work with electricity directly, including working on overhead lines, cable harnesses, and circuit assemblies. Others, such as office workers and sales people, work with electricity indirectly and may also be exposed to electrical hazards. The voltage of the electricity and the available electrical current in regular businesses and homes has enough power to cause death by electrocution. Even changing a light bulb without unplugging the lamp can be hazardous because coming in contact with the "hot", "energized" or "live" part of the socket could kill a person. All electrical systems have the potential to cause harm. Electricity can be either "static" or "dynamic." People are injured when they become part of the electrical circuit. Humans are more conductive than the earth (the ground we stand on) which means if there is no other easy path, electricity will try to flow through our bodies. There are four main types of injuries:
  • electrocution (fatal)
  • electric shock
  • burns
  • falls

Lockout-tagout (LOTO)
Lockout-tagout (LOTO) or lock and tag is a safety procedure which is used in industry and research settings to ensure that dangerous machines are properly shut off and not able to be started up again prior to the completion of maintenance or repair work. Lockout is one way to control hazardous energy. In practice, lockout is the isolation of energy from the system (a machine, equipment, or process) which physically locks the system in a safe mode. Tag out is a labelling process that is always used when lockout is required.
Safety devices such as barrier guards or guarding devices are installed on systems to maintain worker safety while these systems are being operated. When non-routine activities such as maintenance, repair, or set-up; or the removal of jams, clogs or misaligned feeds are performed, these safety devices may be removed provided there are alternative methods in place to protect workers from the increased risk of injury of exposure to the unintended or inadvertent release of energy.

Work at height
Work at height means work in any place where, if precautions were not taken, a person could fall a distance liable to cause personal injury. You are working at height if you:
  • work above ground/floor level
  • could fall from an edge, through an opening or fragile surface or
  • could fall from ground level into an opening in a floor or a hole in the ground

Work at height does not include a slip or a trip on the level, as a fall from height has to involve a fall from one level to a lower level, nor does it include walking up and down a permanent staircase in a building. Access and egress to a place of work can also be work at height.

Scaffolding Safety
Scaffolding Safety is a temporary structure used to support a work crew and materials to aid in the construction, maintenance and repair of buildings, bridges and all other man-made structures. Scaffolds are widely used on site to get access to heights and areas that would be otherwise hard to get to. Unsafe scaffolding has the potential to result in death or serious injury.
Working on raised scaffolding can be very dangerous whenever the proper safety precautions are not maintained. However, when the safety protocols and practices are observed properly, working on these structures can be just as safe as any other elevated construction technique.

Forklift Safety
Moving large, heavy loads is crucial to today's manufacturing and construction industries. Much technology has been developed for these operations, including careful training and extensive workplace precautions. There are significant safety issues to be considered, both for the operators of the diverse "lifting" devices, and for workers in proximity to them.
Powered industrial trucks, commonly called forklifts or lift trucks, are used in many industries, primarily to move materials. They can also be used to raise, lower, or remove large objects or a number of smaller objects on pallets or in boxes, crates, or other containers. Powered industrial trucks can either be ridden by the operator or controlled by a walking operator.

Personal protective equipment
Personal protective equipment, commonly referred to as "PPE", is equipment worn to minimize exposure to hazards that cause serious workplace injuries and illnesses. These injuries and illnesses may result from contact with chemical, radiological, physical, electrical, mechanical, or other workplace hazards. Making the workplace safe includes providing instructions, procedures, training and supervision to encourage people to work safely and responsibly. Even where engineering controls and safe systems of work have been applied, some hazards might remain. These include injuries to:
  • the lungs, e.g. from breathing in contaminated air
  • the head and feet, e.g. from falling materials
  • the eyes, e.g. from flying particles or splashes of corrosive liquids
  • the skin, e.g. from contact with corrosive materials
  • the body, e.g. from extremes of heat or cold
PPE is needed in these cases to reduce the risk. Personal protective equipment may include items such as gloves, safety glasses and shoes, earplugs or muffs, hard hats, respirators, or coveralls, vests and full body suits.

Road Safety

With the surging economy, vehicle population expanded in the country during the last one decade. Though road networks also improved, mounting pressure on roads from expanded vehicle population has aggravated safety issues. As per the Supreme Court appointed Committee on road safety, nearly 1,50,000 people die in road accidents in the country every year. Another 5 to 7 lakh people are believed to be injured, leading to handicapped status.
Defensive Driving is essentially driving in a manner that utilizes safe driving strategies to enables motorists to address identified hazards in a predictable manner. These strategies go well beyond instruction on basic traffic laws and procedures. With defensive driving sessions, participants learn to improve their driving skills by reducing their driving risks by anticipating situations and making safe well-informed decisions. Such decisions are implemented based on road and environmental conditions present when completing a safe driving maneuver.

Office Safety

Offices are safe places to work in compared to industrial and construction sites, but injuries that do occur in office environments are not inconsequential and can result in disabling injuries. Be aware of your surroundings and your activities in an office and consider the possible consequences just as seriously as you would in totally unfamiliar surroundings.
An office may not look or sound like a sawmill or foundry, but if you are not paying attention to a hazard because it doesn't look scary, it can still hurt you quite badly. If you have good health and safety practices at office, you will see these benefits-
  • Protect your staff from injuries
  • Reduce absences and sick leave
  • Retain staff
  • Reputation
  • Save insurance and legal costs

Schools Safety

Schools are critical infrastructure entrusted with the responsibility of creating citizens of tomorrow. A safe and secure environment is a prerequisite for effective teaching and learning. Thus, ensuring safety of children, teachers and staff members during disasters is necessary. In the light of recent tragedies involving school children, like the Kumbakonam fire tragedy, Dabwali fire incident and earthquakes around the world where school children were affected due to unsafe school buildings. It becomes of utmost importance that safety of children is given due consideration, thus making schools safe also serves the purpose of their dual use as evacuation centers during emergencies.

Hospital Safety

Disasters have an uncanny ability to bring to the forefront vulnerabilities of systems, structures, processes and people which in turn cause large scale damages; and hospitals are no exception to this rule. In India, experiences from the Gujarat earthquake of 2001, the Indian Ocean Tsunami of 2004 and the Kashmir Earthquake of 2005 have shown that disasters affect not only the population but also health facilities. As a result, when hospitals are affected by disasters, the repercussions are three dimensional – health, social and economic.
