    NO ACCIDENTS RECENTLY. IS IT A SAFE WORKPLACE?

    The safety of a workplace is not measured by the occurrence of accidents regardless of whether one has never occurred or they have been infrequent. The safety of a workplace is based upon the effectiveness of existing safeguarding to protect workers from potential injury. If the potential for injury exists, then the hazardous situation leading to an accident can simply be a matter of coincidence by a person "being in the wrong place at the wrong time" which is not an acceptable explanation for an accident in the workplace.


    RISK IS THE MEASURE OF SAFETY

    It is the assessment of risk that establishes the degree of safety for an individual machine or process but it is ultimately the means of risk reduction employed that determines the safety of workers within the workplace. This general concept summarizes the perspective required when addressing health & safety within the workplace but application of the safeguarding solutions to achieve risk reduction inevitably becomes problematic when considering the project scope. An assessment involving multiple machines or a sophisticated process must utilize an alternative approach.


    WHERE DO YOU START?

    The JEC Compliance Plan is the first step in overcoming the daunting task of starting to address a large scale health & safety issues within the workplace. The Compliance Plan will provide you with a general "report card" style report on the state of multiple machines or processes within your facility. This report can be of assistance by aiding in the prioritization of areas requiring attention that can be of importance for the following situations:

    1. When dealing with an extensive MOL order that has been issued covering many areas of a facility and requiring compliance before a specified date.

    2. Developing a general understanding regarding the state of an entire facility when no prior references exist.

    3. Identifying machinery where a pre-start review was applicable but not completed.


    THE FAST TRACK TO COMPLIANCE

    The JEC Compliance Plan will serve to simplify the assessment process and aid in directing efforts towards issues based on their priority. The goal being; a fast track to compliance.
