Safe Working: A Quick Introduction to Safer Working Procedures

 

work_safety_0

Earlier today I was watching a movie about poisonous and hazardous chemicals and how they are handled in the workplace. It got me thinking about how prevalent dangerous chemicals are for workers. Now some countries have different perspectives on ensuring employee safety when handling chemicals of a dangerous nature… Countries such as Bangladesh, India, or China have less strict policies when it comes to safety and the safety of their employees. This isn’t much of a shock really, In fact many of these countries employ even children as young as 12 to work.

Working with chemicals deemed dangerous is a special designation and companies need to be sure that they are up to date and up to code. Some companies ensure that your WHMIS  designations are up to date, while others ensure that you have proper safety precautions present when you encounter incidents like fire. It is important to make sure that you have made sure that your employees are safe… Whether its exposure to air born pollutants, chemicals, or even dangerous machinery. Employee safety is no joke.

A list of potential dangers include but are not limited to the following: falling, fires, chemicals, disease, cancers, exposure to hot things, cold things, and lesser experienced individuals. Safe workplaces are happy workplaces, especially in manufacturing, metals, and other industrial activities. If you feel as if you are not currently in line to have your company safe and up to date, please have a look at a designation from JHSC – PSHSA.ca.

Well, There are a lot of governmental resources available on the topic. What I have discussed here is really only a smallest of possibilities when it comes to workplace safety. There are so many different aspects to the industry, and different options when it comes to safety, that we need to ensure we are on top of things.

Putting A Smile On Everyone’s Face

Some people just aren’t into volunteering or community service. For me, it’s a way to give to the needy and help others who are less fortunate. Smiles Mentoring is a great system to mentor kids who have troubles in school or other aspects of their lives. Putting a smile on a kid is just a great way to not only brighten up their day, but also brightens up mine.

Even if you don’t have much time to give, one hour of helping a kid may change his or her life. I often tutor kids Math and English. You’d be surprised at how smart one kid can be. All they need is just a little attention. You start to bond with them and learn about their lives. You worry about their health and their safety, whether they’re hanging with the right crowd, and if they are taking good care of their health. Smiles Mentoring helps kids who are struggling with their lives to steer them back in the right direction. We often help people find the right job that will suit their lives.

We also help teens and young adults find jobs and a way to support themselves. We make sure that the jobs are appropriate and that they will excel at whatever they do. We take pride in considering the health and safety factor of every kid, teen, and adult we help. We’re always here to lend a helping hand and will always make sure that the job we find is safe and rewarding.
