21Proper Workstation Arrangement OFFICE ERGONOMICSPrevention is the key to reduce or eliminate the risk of developing a cumulative trauma disorder. Early intervention makes a difference for employees who experience symptoms from lifting or other body motions.Proper Workstation ArrangementA Workstation should be designed to accommodate each user. Adjustability is the key. It allows each employee to adjust the furniture and reorganize the work area to fit the individual. The posture used should minimize muscle tension and body strain.
22OFFICE ERGONOMICS The Work Envelope The work envelope is the ZONE in which an employee performs most routine tasks. Work should be arranged according to the following DiagramUsual Work – Within 12 In. from the operatorOccasional Work – Within 18 In. maximum from the operatorSuch an arrangement reduces potential stress to the back, shoulders, and arms by avoiding awkward postures and positions
23SAFE LIFTING TECHNIQUES Ergonomics is not an exact science, however there have been proven methods of proper lifting that have caused a reduction in the amount of back related injuries.
24IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT ENTERING THE WAREHOUSE WORK AREAS
25PEDESTRIAN / FORKLIFT INTERACTION Safety Rules for all individuals (staff and visitors) that cross the yellow line into the work areas of the warehouse.Gloves, Safety Shoes, Vests, and Protective Eyewear are required to be worn at all times.When approaching a Forklift make eye contact to ensure that you have been seen, and both have decided who will pass first.Keep a minimum distance of 16 ft. between you and a forklift at all times.If you need to pass a forklift at any time, the forklift driver must render his vehicle inoperable with forks in the down position and foot off the deadman."Forklift accidents are among the most common causes of a loss of life in the workplace and the company failed to undertake the most basic health and safety measures."
26EMERGENCY EVACUATIONIn the event of a full emergency evacuation any persons in the main office must be aware of exits and in evacuation procedures.Facilitator or person first witnessing the emergency initiates the evacuation.All office personnel should immediately exit the building and meet at the SW corner of the street and wait for roll to be taken.For more detailed information on this facility’s evacuation procedures please see SOP
27EMERGENCY EVACUATION RULES Do not stay at your desk in a power outage to wait for the lights to come back on.Do not stop to retrieve your personal belongings.Do not go to your car or leave the premisesDo not go back in to the building until the “ALL CLEAR” has been given.These rules are put in place for your safety ---- If a person is unaccounted for, emergency personnel will assume that they are in the building. This could cause them to risk their lives unnecessarily.
28RISK EVALUATION/SIO PROGRAM The Risk Evaluation Form was created to encourage anyone within the facility to identify risk and record their findings on this form.RISK EVALUATIONS Are Important! Why?Serve as a second set of eyes for management to be aware and locate hazards.Serves as proper documentation for the employer to begin analysis and determine the measures necessary to correct a problem.Without the assessment of risk, employees can be injured from non-reported hazards.Without your input something could possibly be missed and go uncorrected.
29RISK EVALUATION / SIO PROGRAM Risk Evaluation Form / Safety Improvement OpportunityPart of the program also allows employees to get involved in helping management solve problems --- We value your opinion and look forward to hearing your ideas to improve our workplace.Notice:Please remember that if there is a hazard that can cause imminent harm please report it immediately to your supervisor or safety staff.
30RISK EVALUATION / SIO PROGRAM HOW IT WORKSEmployee finds a Risk / Hazard in the facility or has a suggestion for improvement.Employee retrieves a Risk Evaluation / SIO Form.- Forms are available in the inside break room and at the warehouse cubicle.Form is then completed , signed and returned to Site Manager or Safety Coordinator of the site.- Please do not turn these forms in to your supervisors to take care of. These are items that need to be addressed in a timely manner, therefore, it is essential that we eliminate the middle man.4. Form will then be reviewed by the Site Steering Committee and Site Safety Manager to determine a course of action.5. Your findings and the corrective actions we implement will be reviewed with you and will be entered in to a corrective action log and displayed for all staff to see the progress being made. (See Log example on next slide)
31RISK EVALUATION / SIO PROGRAM Corrective Action Report (CAR)This Report is updated bi-monthly and is posted in the main break room
32ACCIDENT REPORTINGIn order to prevent accidents from happening we must report, investigate, take corrective action and share experienceReport accidents to your supervisor immediatelyParticipate in the investigation and root cause of your incident.Participate in the development of the corrective action to aid in preventing a repeat occurrence
