  • ILL HEALTH ISSUES ASSOCIATED WITH THE USE OF COMPUTERS & KEYBOARDS (DISPLAY SCREEN EQUIPMENT DSE) 1. Eye strain 2. Back pain 3. Fatigue 4. Stress 5. Work related upper limb disorder (WRULD) associated with repetitive use of key boards and mouse for long periods of time. CONTROL MEASURES 1. Provide DSE users with free eye test and if required spectacles for screen use. 2. Provide basic DSE work station equipment that meet minimum standards in terms of good ergonomic design. 3. Plan the user’s work so that they can take short frequent breaks from screen and key board use. 4. Carry out workstation assessment of the user’s work station to ensure that the equipment and environment meet minimum standards and the work station can be adjusted to suit the user. 5. Provide information and training to users on the potential health risks of DSE use and the preventive measures in particular the ergonomic use of the work station. #safety #safetyfirst #safetytraining #kafelagc #neboshigc #ohsas18001 #iso9001training

  • Ergonomics is the study of the relationship between the worker, the work that they are doing and the environment in which they are doing it. Ergonomics is concerned with the interaction between people and: i. The tools, equipment or machinery they are using ii. The workplace environment iii. Organizational factors. Many factors influence ergonomics risk such as repetition, force, posture, twisting, rest breaks, equipment design and adjustability and workplace lighting. Musculoskeletal Disorders such as back pain and work related upper limb disorder (WRULD) can result from repetitive tasks such as display screen equipment (DSE) use, check out operation and bricklaying. Back injuries and back pain, WRULD’s and other chronic soft injuries associated with sitting, standing or kneeling for long periods of time at work can be collectively referred to as musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) Ergonomic factors that influence risk relate to: I.

  • HAZARDS OF EXCAVATIONS 1. Collapse of excavation. 2. Striking buried services. 3. People falling in. 4. Objects falling in. 5. Flooding. 6. Collapse of adjacent structures. 7. Hazardous substances. CONTROL MEASURES 1. Prevention of collapse of excavation by battering, shoring or trench box. 2. Prevention of falls by use of barriers, good lighting, properly positioned and secure ladders and crossing points guarded in with barriers and toe boards. 3. Preventing materials and vehicles falling in by positioning spoil heaps a safe distance from excavation site, vehicles should be prevented from approaching sides of excavation by use of barriers and signage, vehicle movement close to unspoilt excavation must be minimizer to prevent vibration from loosening side of excavation and workers in the excavation must wear hard hats to protect them from falling objects. #safety #safetyfirst #safetytraining #kafelagc #iso9001training #neboshigc #ohsas18001

  • Main hazards associated with the use of ladders: 1. Falling off the ladders. 2. Ladders toppling sideways. 3. Objects falling front height. 4. Contact with live overhead. 5. The ladder base slipping out of the wall. Control Measures 1. Do not site or handle near live over heads. 2. Site on a solid, flat base so that feet do not sink into the ground. Weight should be supported on styles never on rungs. 3. Top of the ladder must rest on a solid support. 4. The ladder should be secure at the top. 5. Ladder should be footed by some one standing on the bottom rung. 6. Angle of the ladder should be 75○ to the horizontal or at a ratio of 1:4 distance away from the wall to height. ##safety #safetyfirst #safetytraining #kafelagc #iso9001training #neboshigc training #ohsas18001 training
