11 Risk Factors Main risks in our office environment: Carrying heavy items (Manual Handling) Slips, trips and falls Incorrect posture, use of computer monitors Main risks as a visitor in the warehouse/manufacturing area to be aware of: Moving vehicles Machinery Slips, trips and falls

12 Manual Handling If you are required to carry something that is heavy or awkward, always assess other alternatives for example, using a trolley. If this is not possible, ask someone else to help you. Only ever lift using the correct technique Where possible, use mechanical aids to help you lift. The following video shows how correct manual handling is performed: http://www.firedupgroup.co.uk/videos/manual_handling.mp4

13 Slips, trips and falls are the second highest cause of workplace accidents/ near misses (after manual handling) in the UK. Reducing the risk is easy: Keep the work area tidy Keep all exits and walkways clear Report all potential hazards Slips, Trips and Falls

15 Accident and Dangerous Occurrences Policy Fired Up Corporation will investigate, report and record all accidents, dangerous occurrences and incidences of occupational ill health occurring in the workplace to fully establish the cause and to provide methods of preventing and minimising reoccurrence. The following must be reported to the appropriate authorities under law (RIDDOR): - Any death or major injury Any reportable occupational diseases Any injury that results in an employee being absent from work for more than three days or unable to carry out their normal duties for more than three consecutive days Any reportable dangerous occurrences Investigating accidents Employees should not interfere with the scene of a major accident or dangerous occurrence until any investigation is complete. All accidents which result in injury to persons will have an accident investigation carried out by the Supervisor/Team Leader or Manager of the department in conjunction with the HR and Communications Manager or Operations Manager. Photographs and statements and any other information or materials deemed necessary will be taken at that time (for minor injuries this would simply involve taking a verbal statement).

16 Accident Policy Fired Up Corporation will investigate, report and record all accidents, dangerous occurrences and incidence of occupational ill health occurring in the workplace to fully establish the cause and to provide methods of preventing and minimising reoccurrence. Reporting accidents All accidents that result in injury to employees, visitors, contractors and members of the public must be reported in the accident book and additionally reported to the HSE. The following must be reported to the appropriate authorities under law: - Any death or major injury Any reportable occupational diseases Any injury that results in an employee being absent from work for more than three days or unable to carry out their normal duties for more than three consecutive days Any reportable dangerous occurrences

17 Risk Assessments Risk Assessments are required by the Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations Risk assessments are also required by other legislation, i.e. COSHH, Manual Handling, Visual Display Screen Equipment etc If there is perceived to be a ‘moderate’, ‘substantial’ or ‘intolerable’ risk to staff, students or visitors, then a written assessment is required Assessments will be carried out using Fired Up Corporation assessment form, or another agreed document as specified in the Risk Assessment Procedure, by those persons having control and immediate responsibility for the activity.

18 Workstation Design and Layout Poor posture sustained for a long period of time results in fatigue to affected muscle groups. Fatigue can result from reduced blood circulation to muscles. Careful design and layout of your workstation should encourage good posture. You should take regular pauses where you can get up and move around and it is advised that you move away from your desk when taking your lunch break.

19 Good Workstation Layout

20 DSE (Display Screen Equipment)

21 DSE and Vision There is no evidence that Display Screen Equipment work causes damage but it may make existing (uncorrected) vision defects more noticeable Work at DSE normally required long periods of viewing the screen from close distances, which can lead to visual fatigue
