Safety Rules in Manufacturing Sites
Workplace safety is the number one priority in every manufacturing facility. Workplace safety has three components. The company should eliminate the risks and hazards in the workplace, place policies that will keep workers safe and rules that workers should follow. Basic safety precautions in the plant facility are designed primarily in order to reduce the risk of injury of workers when doing their production tasks. Most manufacturing facilities have the same very basic rules in place. These policies include work behavior rules, guidelines in carrying out their respective tasks, rules for keeping the facility a safe place to work and instructions on how to respond to emergency situations.
One of the basic components of a safe manufacturing environment is the set of rules which specifies the requirements for workers. The rules can include prohibitions against alcohol and drug abuse, loose hair, loose clothing, loose jewelry and shoes which are open-toed. Workers should wear the right safety gears like gloves, hearing protection, protective caps and safety glasses. The safety rules should also include sanctions for not adhering to the rules, which can include termination.
One of the major factors for the safety of worker is an organized workplace. The employees should ensure that the workplace is kept free and clean from any kind of debris. Workers should be reminded to always place their tools in assigned locations and keep the safety and work manual accessible for immediate reference by the employees especially those working with heavy equipments. The company is responsible in ensuring that all equipment is maintained properly and are functional. The safety officer does the job of double checking the performance of every equipment and tool in the manufacturing facility. The safety officer can also test the employees in order to ensure that they are aware of the safety rules for their specific tasks.
