Provide a safe working environment for employees. Develop safety awareness in the employee that causes job tasks to be performed accident free. Plan and direct work activities safely. Remain “dedicated to safe production.”
Avoid Overhead Stacking!
SAFETY FIRST Priority is to provide a safe and healthy work environment for the protection of our most vital resource - our employees. Management ranks Safety above production, quality, cost, and service
The Department’s basic philosophy is that we can reduce all personal injuries. Responsibility for safety is shared by: - Secretary - Division/District Directors - Supervisors -Employees at every level There is no place at the FDEP for an unsafe employee. ZERO ACCIDENTS IS OUR GOAL!
Behavior Based Safety A tool for achieving a TSC
Identify hazards associated with each step Select jobs for analysis (injuries/injury records/potential for harm) Break the job into steps Eliminate or Correct the hazards
- Concern For Employees - Reduce Human Cost - Reduce Economic Cost - It’s The Law
Occupational Safety and Health Act of F.S.: Designation of Agency Safety Coordinator and Safety Program (3) F.S.: Submit Annual Report to Governor. National Fire Codes - State and Local American National Standards (ANSI)
General Duty Requirement “Each employer shall furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing, or are likely to cause, death or serious physical harm to his employees” Occupational Safety And Health Act
Auto Fleet Maintenance/Driving Safety Workplace Violence Return-To-Work Indoor Air Quality Slips, Trips, and Falls Office Safety Non-Employee Incident Prevention Facility Inspection

DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
How are those Safety Awareness Campaign Projects Coming along? Great! And the Diving Issue is coming right along -Directives -Duties -Responsibilitie s
Your Safety Committee is responsible for: Review and comment on the Health and Safety Program at least quarterly Implementation of the Health and Safety Program Establish and communicate procedures for conducting employee internal self- inspections of the workplace
Establish and communicate procedures to review all workplace accidents, safety-related incidents, injuries, illnesses, diseases, and fatalities Evaluate the effectiveness of, and recommend improvements to, the Department’s safety rules, policies, and procedures for accident and illness prevention programs in the workplace Communicate guidelines for the safety training of all employees on a continuing basis and ensure records of safety training are kept
Hazard Communications (HAZCOM) OSHA Hazard Communication Standard 29 CFR Training Hazardous Chemicals Material Safety Data Sheets Physical Hazards
o Facility/Equipment/Operation inspections o Preventative maintenance o Safety audits o First Report of Injury/Illness o History of Accidents o Near-Hits
Develop a written standard operating procedure Eliminate the hazard all together Administrative controls (reduce exposure time/rules) Engineering controls (design it away) Training Job rotation- chemical substation PPE (last control)
Problems and loss producing events are seldom, if ever the result of a single cause! Principle of Multiple Causes
LACK OF CONTROL failure to maintain compliance with standards BASIC CAUSES Personal factors/job factors INTERMEDIATE CAUSES substandard Acts/Behaviors INCIDENT struck/fell/caught /contact with… LOSS (personal/property/process) LOSS CAUSATION MODEL
Loss Control Management shall address, and reduce, two “COSTS” that are paid by the Department. Direct Costs Indirect Costs
on the job injury and illness off the job injury and illness fire and explosion general property damage absenteeism general and administrative liability alcohol and other drug abuse wasteful behavior natural catastrophic loss production delay and interruption management system inadequacies employee morale
Safety Program Is Dependent Upon Management Support Program Funding Effective Hazard Control Supervisor Support Assigned Safety Manager Employee Participation
SAFETY TRAINING SHOULD BE PROVIDED TO EVERY EMPLOYEE! Training Training For ALL DEP Employees
ALL EMPLOYEES SHOULD FOLLOW THE SAFETY PRACTICES AND RULES. ALL EMPLOYEES SHOULD REPORT ALL UNSAFE CONDITIONS OR PRACTICES TO THEIR SUPERVISOR. ALL EMPLOYEES SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR IMPLEMENTING THE DEPARTMENT’S SAFETY POLICIES ALL EMPLOYEES SHOULD PRACTICE SAFE WORK HABITS.
