Conscientious Employee Tips

OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) is the government organization primarily responsible for regulating workplace safety procedures. The majority of risky workplaces such as construction sites and loading docks fall under OSHA's safety jurisdictions. Mining, however, has its own safety organization, MSHA (Mine Safety and Health Administration).

For dangerous workplaces, there are number of important guidelines that are crucial to observe in order to avoid accident. Here are 10 tips employees should be aware of before working in high-risk areas.

 
1. Children under the age of 14 should never be granted access to a risky workplace
 
2. Adolescents aged 16-18 should not operate power tools or work on rooftops
 
3. Know how to use tools before operating them
 
4. No loose clothing  
5. No loose jewelry
6. Tie-back long hair
7. Wear steel-toed boots  
8. Wear safety glasses when operating power tools  
9. Wear a hard hat  
10. Be aware of your surroundings at all times  

Due to the high-risk nature of mining facilities, miners as well as supervisors are required by the MHSA to be trained in various safety regulations.

Employees involved in rigorous labor should familiarize themselves with the causes and symptoms of musculoskeletal disorders. Musculoskeletal disorders are a primary concern for OSHA in virtually all workplaces, including offices. Physical labor can cause a wide replica watches variety of musculoskeletal disorders, including back pain and leg strain. In order to reduce the risk of musculoskeletal disorders, OSHA outlines specific guidelines regarding loading/unloading heavy objects:
    

1.

Identify all hazards with proper signage and highlight safe work practices
 
2. Develop standard procedures for all facets of work, even rudimentary tasks  
3. Use mechanical equipment whenever possible to reduce need for human labor  
4. Train employees to operate any machinery or equipment prior to use  
5. Test equipment before use.  
6. Create regulations to ensure employees follow these guidelines
