ESL commitment towards safety is reflected by its “Safety Speech” which is presented below: It is followed by some SIZZLING safety ideas.
OUR SAFETY SPEECH:
- Safety of our people and organization on the whole
This is our top priority and biggest goal.
- Safety is everybody’s business
But the management has the biggest role.
- Safety will be observed all the time
At work or at home, with heart and soul.
- Safety meetings will be held on a regular basis
It will be as important as the monthly pay roll.
- Pause and reflect every now and then, intervene if a danger is seen;
An ounce of safety prevents tons of disaster control.
- Count your Goal Zero score
Staying safe for longer number of days is important for every soul.
- Wear helmet, fasten seat belts, no mobile phones
Drive safe with a journey plan and speed control.
- Poor housekeeping causes most accidents
Remember wet floor can also take its toll.
- Identify hazards, measure risks, exercise control and review often
This is our recommended safety protocol.
- Hazard elimination, substitution & isolation-our hierarchy for risk control
Use engineering & administrative tools & PPEs to cover any other loophole.
- Recommended safety protocol and hierarchy for risk control
We will follow them whether we rush for work or leisurely stroll.
1. CRYING WOLF – قبل از مرگ واویلہ
Remember the childhood story of a boy who cried wolf and ultimately got into problem. In matters pertaining to health and safety it is, however, advisable to cry wolf even if the wolf never appears.
Whenever tiniest and minutest of safety hazards is noticed, it is very important to raise alarm and cry wolf before it actually arrives.
Workers who “blow the whistle” and draw attention towards a potential safety hazard should always be encouraged, appreciated, recognized and rewarded.
2. COME HELL OR HIGH WATER – آندھی ہو یا طوفان
Come what may!
Every organization should follow a four pronged strategy for averting accidents. It should include:
a. Hazard identification
b. Risk assessment
c. Hierarchy of risk control
Failure to do so will expose it to serious risks and “for all intents and purposes” bring it to a brink of disaster. Please read ESL article and ask ESL for a full presentation on this subject:
3. BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY – حفاظت افسوس سے بہتر ہے
Extreme care should be exercised before commencing work on the generator and while executing it. Read our article available on ESL website to make sure that proper “Lock out, Tag out” procedures are fully implemented.
Please embed it in your mind that even a paper clip can cause a slip and a faulty wire can start a fire.
It is better to be safe than sorry. Etch it in your mind; put it under your skin; get it flowing in your blood.
