2NEP SafetyIt is the intention of NEP Broadcasting to initiate and maintain complete accident prevention and safety training programs and ensure a safe work environment for staff, clients, vendors, etc. Each and every employee working for NEP are responsible for the safety and health of those persons in their charge, coworkers, and others that may be on-site or in any NEP facility. By accepting mutual responsibility to participate in all safety practices, we will all contribute to the well being of our co-workers, clients, guests and the public.
3Safety CommitteeNEP Broadcasting is dedicated to protecting the safety and health of its employees. We have established a safety and health program to prevent injuries and illnesses due to hazards. Employee involvement at all levels of the company is critical for us to be successful in this effort. To accomplish this task, a joint worker/management safety committee has been established to bring workers and management together in a non-adversarial, cooperative effort to promote safety and health in the workplace. This safety committee will provide information and recommendations to management about occupational safety and health conditions and practices, and to provide a forum for information exchange.
5Ergonomics Ergonomics at NEP The purpose of ergonomics is to fit the workplace to the worker and help reduce injuries associated with repetitive motion, unnatural positions, and excessive forces.. Ergonomically correct equipment is available to all employees. Contact your supervisor or Human Resources if you have a specific requirement.
6Office ErgonomicsOffice Ergonomics include such items as:Your ChairYour KeyboardMonitor, Document & Telephone
8Office Ergonomics Cont’d Pauses & BreaksOnce you have correctly set up your computer workstation, use good work habits. No matter how perfect the environment, prolonged, static postures will inhibit blood circulation and cause aches and pains.Take short 1-2 minute stretch breaks every 30 minutes. After each hour of work, take a break or change tasks for at least 5 minutes. Always try to get away from your computer during lunch breaks.Avoid eye fatigue by resting and refocusing your eyes periodically. Look away from the monitor and focus on something in the distance.Rest your eyes by covering them with your palms for seconds.Use correct posture when working. Keep moving as much as possible.
9Lifting & Carrying “Work Smarter Not Harder” Ergonomics Cont’dLifting & Carrying “Work Smarter Not Harder”Always use proper technique to help avoid strains and injuries due to lifting and carrying:Keep the load closeProper Lifting TechniquesPlan aheadGet help when you need itAvoid pushing or pulling when possible
10Proper Lifting Techniques Move items close to your body and use your legs when lifting an item from a low location.Store and place materials that need to be manually lifted and transported at "power zone" height, about mid-thigh to mid-chest.Minimize bending and reaching by placing heavy objects on shelves, tables, or racks.Avoid twisting, especially when bending forward while lifting. Turn by moving the feet rather than twisting the torso.Keep your elbows close to your body and keep the load as close to your body as possible.Break down loads into smaller units and carry one in each hand to equalize loads. Use buckets with handles, or similar devices, to carry loose items.Optimize employee access to heavy items through good housekeeping and preplanning.
12Office Ergonomics and Telephones Placing the telephone too far away can cause you to repeatedly reach, resulting in strain on the shoulder, arm, and neck.Potential Hazard:Prolonged conversations with the phone pinched between your shoulder and head (Figure 1) may cause stress and neck pain.Possible Solution:Use of the speaker that is located on the telephone for hands free use.Hold telephone with a hand; do not pinch between shoulder and head. Figure 1. Awkward posture during telephone use
13Safety Guidelines for NEP Employees Cont’d Fire SafetyFire prevention is an important aspect of NEP’s safety philosophy.To reduce the risk of fire at the facility you should use products with a highflashpoint, and eliminate non-essential flammable and combustible materials in theworkplace.Fire extinguishersImproper use of fire extinguishers can lead to serious injury or death.Fire extinguishers are located throughout the facility, but at no time is anyemployee required or obligated to use a fire extinguisher.If you choose to not use the fire extinguisher close doors behind you inorder to restrict oxygen to fire.
14How to Use a Fire Extinguisher Safety Guidelines for NEP Employees Cont’dHow to Use a Fire ExtinguisherAll fire extinguishers located at NEP are operated in the same manner. The acronym P.A.S.S. can help you remember the correct way to use a fire extinguisher.P = Pull the pin at the top of the cylinder.A = Aim the nozzle at the base of the fire (do not hold the cone of a CO2 extinguisher).S = Squeeze the handle.S = Sweep the contents from side to side at the base of the fire until it goes out.*If you use an extinguisher, give the extinguisher to the FacilitiesManager. Do not hang it back up.
15 Pull the pin. This will allow you to discharge the extinguisher. Aim at the base of the fire. If you aim at the flames (which is frequently the temptation), the extinguishing agent will fly right through and do no good. You want to hit the fuel.Squeeze the top handle or lever. This depresses a button that releases the pressurized extinguishing agent in the extinguisher.Sweep from side to side until the fire is completely out. Start using the extinguisher from a safe distance away, then move forward. Once the fire is out, keep an eye on the area in case it re-ignites.
16Bloodborne PathogensBloodborne Pathogens means pathogenic microorganisms that are present in human blood and can cause disease in humans. These pathogens include, but are not limited to, hepatitis B virus (HBV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).Universal precautions shall be observed to prevent contact with blood or other potentially infectious materials. Under circumstances in which differentiation between body fluid types is difficult or impossible, all body fluids shall be considered potentially infectious materials.If employee is injured, call emergency services immediately if necessary.Stay away from contact with blood or bodily fluids.Use proper PPE if touching any contaminated materials.Properly dispose of contaminated materials.Disinfect all areas contaminated.
