Worker safety is a matter of life and death. One individual was working on maintaining and cleaning a mortar mixer at the end of a workday. He may have been tired, improperly taught, or not following instructions because the machine was still active and running. The individual was pulled into the mixing machine and pronounced dead at the scene. This could have been easily solved by using a simple procedure called lockout tagout whereby individuals working on equipment lock it out to ensure that the machine is NOT active and Not running when maintenance is being performed. This is a simple, but very important part of workplace safety. One individual was performing maintenance on a truck up north and forgot to tag it as locked out, another individual, unaware of the first individual, got in the truck and drove it.

It was not a pretty sight- workplace deaths like these are awful but with proper education and proper accountability are avoidable. Here are some good strategies for preventing deaths related to not locking or tagging equipment out: make sure gear is turned off and not connected to anything before performing work on it, make sure employees are properly informed, confirm things are locked or tagged out, procedures for lockout tagouts are extremely important for these issues. And finally make sure that warning labels are properly assigned, visible, and understood across all your employees. A good resource for training on this matter is jhsc training.

Now there are a number of ways to make sure that these incidents do not occur but by far the grounded and most important is education and awareness. Make sure that employees are educated and aware of the rules, procedures, and labels needed to ensure a safe and happy work environment.

WHMIS labels, tagout procedures, and lockout drills should be performed regularly. Many unnecessary workplace deaths occur to individuals younger than 25. This could be due to lack of concern for their own wellbeing but most likely is that these individuals are not paying proper respect to the rules and legal situations allocated to their employment. It is up to the employers to ensure that young workers are aware of the risk and difficulties in the present situations. These young learners should be taught using WHMIS e-learning and training guides, as well as taught safety precautions through older more experiences professionals in the industry such as bosses or managers.

Turning Into A Health Guru

Welcome to my blog, marc-gonsalves.com. My name is Marco and I have drastically changed my lifestyle for the better. I’ve started this blog to help you turn your life into what it could be.

I used be quite a chubby guy. I didn’t eat well and I never exercised. A couple years ago, I was diagnosed with diabetes. Clearly I had to change my entire lifestyle. It was extremely difficult at first, not being able to eat what I craved and getting into an exercise routine. Shortly after, when I had built up a routine, things started getting easier and I started to feel better. I used to be moody and had quite a pessimistic outlook on life. Now, I see everything can have a positive purpose, and I know what I want in life. I know what I want my life to look like, and I’m on the right path to getting there.

I started doing hot yoga shortly after getting into an exercise routine. Not only did I lose all my weight, I toned up and saw muscles that I had never before seen. I was eating healthy and had more energy than ever before. I felt like I could conquer the world!

Even my work life changed. People viewed me differently, complimenting me on my new figure. I changed up the way I ate at work, now always packing a healthy lunch rather than grabbing whatever was at the cafeteria. I started a club at work and every day at lunchtime, we would go for a half hour walk. I got an ergonomic chair and keyboard placed at my desk and even got a standing desk for when I felt like standing up and working.

I changed my life drastically and would love to better yours as well.
