Safety Plan

A Safety Plan is a written document that describes the process for identifying the physical and health hazards that could harm workers, procedures to prevent accidents, and steps to take when accidents occur. Written safety plans can be comprehensive, such as an injury and illness prevention program, or they can be specific to a particular activity, hazard, or piece of equipment. The written safety plan is your blueprint for keeping workers safe. Many organizations compile their activity-specific safety plans into a single safety manual.

However, Our Company is committed to providing the safest possible working environment and conditions for our Employees. The safety of our employees is a prime concern to management. With this in mind the following management commitment is being made to prevent unnecessary injuries to our employees.

The prevention of employee injuries is of the utmost importance and a key ingredient to the continued success and growth of our company. We urge each of you to join with us in committing to make our company the safest possible place to work.

Each employee has a personal responsibility to work safely. In a broad sense all employees are members of the safety committee. All employees, together, have the responsibility to create and maintain a workplace that is free of unsafe and hazardous work assignments. Your second responsibility is to use only safe procedures in your work. Also, when you see an unsafe or possibly unsafe condition in the workplace, or when you see what is or possibly may be unsafe work behavior, you are to correct it if possible. And you are to report it to your supervisor.

This is important so that management can make necessary decisions to improve safe working conditions and safe working behaviors.

Work at Hight

Any work to be performed at a height of 1.8 meters or above from the ground level where a person is standing is defined as work at height. Even a job being carried out below the ground level is classified as work at height. (Eg: Work in an excavated area is a work at height). For jobs at more than 1.8 mtr. height, where there is no permanent platform, the job requires a permit to work along with a work at height checklist.

Hot Work

Hot work any work that may generate a source of ignition like as welding, cutting, grinding and use of torches in areas that are not designed for such activity. Hot work accounts for a significant number of serious fires in business and industry every year due to the hot work causing accidental fire. A Hot Work procedure minimizes the chance that such a fire will occur in our facility.

Performing hot work in areas that are not designed for operation of flame- or spark-producing equipment can cause an accidental fire because of:

Flame contact with combustible material
Sparks settling in combustible material, often falling through a hole in the floor or wall
Heat transmitted through pipes, ducts or conduit to a remote combustible material
Ignition of flammable vapor or dust in the air

All fixed fire protection systems must be in operation
A Hot Work Permit must be completed and a trained fire watch assigned
All flammable and combustible material must be kept at least 35 feet away from the job area. You may also have to use a meter to check flammable gas, vapor or dust levels.
Combustible material that cannot be moved must be protected with fire proof tarps or shields
Wall and floor openings must be plugged with fire proof material
Use shields to protect others from weld flash
Enclosed equipment that contained flammable or combustible material must be cleaned and purged
If necessary, a Confined Space Entry Permit must be secured

A Hot Work Permit must be completed and signed for all work involving: welding, cutting, grinding, soldering, brazing and use of torches or flames
The Hot Work Permit must be signed by your supervisor after necessary precautions are taken
The Hot Work Permit must be displayed at the job site until job completion
A fire watch must be at the job site until one-half hour after the job completion
Expired Hot Work Permits are retained for facility records

Definition: A fire watch is a worker trained and assigned to stay in the area of hot work and look for any evidence of an accidental fire.
Have fire extinguishing equipment available for immediate use and be prepared to turn in a fire alarm
Watch for any hazardous conditions and stop the hot work in the event of any potential fire hazard development
Continually check all areas where a fire could start including: the floor below and floor above and the opposite side of walls and petitions
Keep all fire proof tarps and shields in place
Remain in constant attendance (including breaks and lunch) until 30 minutes after the job is complete
