...Brandon Hines Safety, Health, and Environment Developing Today’s Safety Aspects In the last century, the modern aspects in safety for Process Technicians have helped make a better work environment, for those who make the products we use in our everyday lives. Many unfortunate, tragic, but educational events helped point the industry in the right direction. Through these events the industry has grown and developed newer safer equipment, improved its employee’s safety/well-being, and created a safer, more aware community. On December 3, 1984, a toxic gas cloud escaped from a chemical plant in Bhopal, India. The cloud slowly made its way into the community killing over two thousand people and seriously harming many others. The gas cloud was composed of methyl isocyanate (MIC). MIC is a major component used in the production of Sevin and Temik, pesticides used to control insect infestations and crop production in India. This was the first time that a major chemical manufacturer has had a deadly leak near a populated area. This helped show that the community needed to be more aware of what was around them. The industry began investigations to discover what really took place that day in order to prevent such an event from occurring again. The Union Carbide plant produced a wide range of pesticides that were very critical to the economy of India. For the production of these products, a number of steps were required. The first step was the reaction of carbon monoxide with......

Child Safety

...Children's Safety News headlines about heinous criminal acts against children such as kidnapping, abuse, assault, murder and rape are more than just disturbing. They are shocking. It is right that we condemn these despicable acts. While our hearts go out to the aggrieved parents who may never see their children again, we must realize that we live in a time and age where it is no longer safe for children to roam about freely. Protecting children from harm and violence is not just the duty of parents and the authorities concerned. Society has to play its part as well. For starters, action needs to begin with parents and the family. Parents must be vigilant and know the whereabouts of their children all the time. They nee to watch out for their children especially when they are outside, be it in the playground or while shopping. Moreover, they need to chaperone their children constantly, even if the distance traveled is short. Leaving a child unsupervised and assuming that a child will ultimately return home safely is unwise. Parents should set boundaries about places that children may go, people they may see and things they may do. Children should also be taught to say 'no' to strangers offering lifts and gifts. The authorities, including the police, can ensure better protection for children by implementing several measures, for example increasing patrols in high-risk areas such as shopping malls and playgrounds. They can also carryout awareness campaigns on child......

College Safety

...College Safety To further your education beyond high school most people would go to college. Most people also think that college is a relatively safe place for your learning. Colleges are actually becoming more dangerous than ever. With the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre, many students, along with their parents, are calling for more security measures. But just how far should colleges go to keep campuses safe? Reports have seen more colleges implementing increased number of blue-light phones, more campus security guards, and even emergency text alerts. Some institutions are even maximizing the use of security cameras in every place they can. Is this taking a step to security, or taking a step right into the privacy of the students themselves? When trying to save the lives of thousands of students, many people promote every drastic safety measure possible. In an article written by Brett Sokolow, he states that “every college and university should rush to set up text-message-based early warning systems, install loudspeakers throughout campus, and develop mass-shooting evacuation plans,” then he goes on to even more extreme actions by stating colleges should “expel student with serious mental health conditions.” Surely, with all these security actions, colleges could implement a foundation that could bring back the safety that was once there. If you start early warning systems you can essentially eliminate the number of victims in a shooting through the use of a silent text......

Workplace Safety

...Workplace Safety Article: Avoiding Corporate Complacency Every day in the United States on the average, 15 workers lose their lives as a result of injuries or illnesses related to their work - that's over 5700 people. These people leave behind families, friends, and co-workers. The single most common cause is complacency - an attitude that "it won't happen to me." Complacency Kills The Entire Organization Too often individuals and companies become complacent when it comes to safety. Managers are satisfied with mediocre safety performance and do not work to improve the environment by raising safety awareness and eliminating the potential for injury. Employees are content and are not attentive to their work environments. They become convinced that management is not concerned about safety. They begin to think they are not responsible for their own safety. Over time, the entire organization gives little meaningful attention to safety. The result is that employees begin to get in a hurry and take shortcuts on the job. They are more focused on production and getting the job done than getting it done safely. That attitude becomes an organizational norm. Near misses go unreported. No one wants to take the time to fill out forms and employees don't understand the connection between sharing information and eliminating injuries. Managers do not pay attention to reports, so they become unimportant. The number of injuries increases and they become more severe. Everyone......

These types of hazards can cause serious harm to a workers health. Failure to follow the correct guidelines when working with harmful hazards that were listed above may cause serious harm which includes cancer, lung impairment, diseases or could result in death. OSHA has specific guidelines you must follow when working with hazardous material. They require that the employer provides the employee with a certain type of respirator depending on the type of work the employee may be doing. There are many types of respirators but the two main types are the air-purifying respirators which use filters, cartridges, or canisters to remove contaminants from the air you breathe. Another is atmosphere-supplying respirators, which provide you with clean air from an uncontaminated source. They also can be classified as tight or loose fitting. The Tight-fitting respirators need a tight seal between the respirator and the face and neck of the respirator user in order to work properly. If the respirator's seal leaks contaminated air will be pulled into the face piece and can be breathed in. Loose-fitting respirators do not depend on a tight seal with the face to provide......

System Safety Management

The first types of programs that were used to seek something better than the fly-fix-fly approach were known as the MIL-STD-882 which stood for the System Safety Program for Systems and Associated Subsystems and Equipment and the Minuteman Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) program which was one of the first major formal systems safety efforts. Q4) How did the MORT approach to system safety develop? Who developed it and who uses it? The Management Oversight and Risk Tree (MORT) approach to system safety developed after the establishment of several safety programs which had many differences and no form of standardization across the board which affected the effectiveness of monitoring, evaluation and control of safety efforts. The MORT was then developed to adopt the best features from...

Workplace Safety at Alcoa

...Reaction Summary: Workplace Safety at Alcoa In your opinion, what will be the key challenge to Alcoa's strategic effort to meet its goal of improved safety performance? Explain. There are many obstacles in front of Alcoa in its improvements of Safety. First of all, aluminum operations throughout the US had high injury rates. Alcoa has no peer models in the industry to follow. If Alcoa wants to improve its safety rates, it has to make extra efforts all by itself, despite the fact that peer companies are using different rules. Also, objections from line workers add a lot of pressure on implementing safety policies. However, different coworkers have distinct reasons to object. Some of the line workers are afraid of being laughed at by their coworkers when they follow new safety regulations. Workers don’t all understand the necessity of a new regulation at the beginning, so they feel easier to reject new rules. Some experienced workers refuse to follow new regulations because they are using their experience to judge all kinds of possibilities in work. They’ve never had accidents in the past, so it’s hard for them to adopt new regulations. Besides these two reasons, there are cultural norms and emotions. Workers may know it’s easier to get injured when they wear rings. However, cultures and emotions hold them back from safety concerns. Alcoa’s management also needs enhancement to meet with its safety expectations. Merton found workers have lax attitude within......

... INTRODUCTION/ HISTORY Companies suffer a considerable loss due to accidents, and it is reflected in paying insurance cost, repair of the damage machinery, slowing down of production, additional charges on training of new specialists, and so on. Thus, a special system of accident investigation or, in other words, loss causation investigation is widely in practice. Accident investigations are conducted not only to prevent material loss, physical injury or corrective measures – the point is also to assure that the injured worker gets all material compensation necessary, or, instead, to oppose false insurance claims. Thus, inadequate safety program is reflected in the lack of workers training, necessary inspections of the equipment and so on. Inadequate safety program standards are evident when workers do not understand the peculiarity of the safety program and how to apply it, that is why insufficient compliance to standards occurs. Before a loss occurs (Injury, illness, damage, loss in process), there are series of events that take place with a root cause that begins this series of events. The root cause is called a Lack of Control (Inadequate standards, lack of compliance for preparedness, knowledge and skill training, etc). This leads to a basic cause (or personal factor) such as lack of knowledge, stress, inadequate capabilities. This in turn leads to an immediate cause (substandard conditions and actions) such as operating without authority, working under the influence......
