Some were obvious shams apparently intended to be evaluated on the basis of their weight rather than their content. In one case, a cover page bearing the company's logo and the words "Safety Program" in large bold type was stapled over the cover of a copy of 29 CFR Activity Hazard Analysis If the accident prevention plan is viewed as the strategic guide for accident prevention, activity hazard analysis might be seen as the tactical guide. Section If those welders in the Pentagon had performed such an analysis, they may have removed or protected the combustible material from being exposed to flying sparks and had portable extinguishers and employees who were trained how to use them.
The al Qaeda cell would have been neutralized. Is that a far-fetched scenario?
Perhaps, but two years ago, so would the thought of two airplanes being flown deliberately into occupied buildings. EM vs. For example, both require that scaffolds be plumb, level, fully planked and provided with guard rails.
Both require that flexible electrical cords be a type approved for hard service use. Both require that moving parts of equipment and machinery be guarded, and that personal protective equipment be used to reduce the likelihood of injury.
In particular, the level of emphasis that EM places on employee training and job site inspections suggests that EM views these two elements as being critical for preventing accidents.
This makes sense because employee training is crucial for informing employees of the potential hazards to which they are exposed and the precautions that should be taken to mitigate those hazards, especially those that are not particularly obvious. For example, many people would probably recognize the hazard posed by a power cord so badly worn that the conductors are visible or by smoking near an open container of gasoline.
Yet many employees might not be aware of the need for performing a ring test before mounting a new grinding wheel, or the need to evaluate a confined space for atmospheric hazards. Job site inspections provide a practical means for determining the effectiveness of the training by seeing whether or not employees have incorporated it into their day-to-day activities.
For example, if job site inspections consistently reveal that damaged hand tools are being used, it might be necessary to reinforce the initial training and increase the level of supervision to ensure more thorough examination of hand tools before use, and removal of damaged tools from service.
Specifically, element 6 of the accident prevention plan demands that a list of subjects that are discussed with employees during their safety indoctrination be provided. This should give pause to any contractors who do not provide safety indoctrination and hope to work on DoD projects. In addition to the initial safety indoctrination, EM includes provisions for ongoing training, specifically section Documentation shall be maintained and copies furnished to the designated authority on request.
They must also review pertinent aspects of appropriate activity hazard analyses by trade. This requirement clearly suggests that EM expects that workers will be briefed on the specific hazards of the job they are working on and on the precautions they must take, and that the content of these briefings will change as the job progresses.
Consequently, the approach of providing generic safety talks would be unacceptable. In many construction companies, the corporate office provides foremen with prepared safety talks that they are supposed to review with their crew. In many situations, the content of these talks has little or nothing to do with the particular job. App Store Preview.
