I am looking for an easy way to train Health & Safety on the production lines. We are using the Du Pont STOP system to train, but would like to personalise it.
I have spent 3 hours this morning trying to find a picture of someone working unsafely, the sort of picture that is in your Food Packaging Hygiene Raising the Standard booklet, but for Health & Safety. Any ideas?

:(
Sorry Sam I've had a good look too but not been able to find anything. Most of the H & S training aids, posters etc. available tell you what to do e.g. knees bent, straight back lifting, and not, what not to do! Could be a good idea - as cartoony type training aids are very good at getting the message across.

Hmmm...

Sam,

I have looked in the past and found very little. I have some training notes at home (I think <_ which include a cartoon where you had to spot the hazards. i will look it out and try upload it. also ask our h officer if he has any info.>
Anyway my main point is that when I do GMP training I use photos of poor practices found (or sometimes set up) inside our factory. I think that staff respond well to pictures from their own environment rather than of somewhere else.

I'll get back if I find anything.

Absolutely agree - I would be lost without my digital camera.

I work in a 'safe / hygienic' plant - Take 20 minutes walking round your plant looking for issues & you will be horrified.

The camera has a way of polarising activities & scenarios that you would normally walk past every day.

I have now completed a number of 'Snap Shot' Audits and compiled presentations for factory briefings / awareness sessions. It is a very powerful tool.

The camera has a way of polarising activities & scenarios that you would normally walk past every day.

I did a similar excersise a couple of years back where I took a load of photos of a print press and work area. I arranged them all on a big board and left them in a room for a week with a pile of post it notes. I asked all the print staff to call in over the week and post their ideas for improvements. I must say initially my action created a massive backlash, but we rode it and to their credit, they came up with some fantastic ideas. In fact, before we had a chance to collate the ideas at the end of the week the print department was already shining like a new pin. :)

It's a good one to be used sparingly.

Whilst we are on the subject some pest control companies now take digital photos during the Technician and Field Biologist visits - again these are great for highlighting areas for attention.

Oddly enough We have just started to do this.

The main reason was our 14001 audits, as has been said, a picture is worth .....

I set up a web site last year, and one of the reasons was for photos to be used in presentations, as well as to assist NEBOSH students.

the site is increasing in terms of content and is free for all educational purposes, although a mention of the source would be nice.

Hello Stoker,

I've had a trawl through your web site and there's some good stuff on there; it looks as though you could be building a useful resource. A word of advice you need to think about structure and usability now before your site gets too large.

Consider grouping the photographs into headings like construction, DIY, manufacturing, roadwork's, home etc. any maybe have sub headings within them. Safetyphoto 1, 2, 3, 4, 5… are meaningless and will not help the user find the information they are looking for easily and may actually put some people off from returning to you site. You wouldn't want to be a cause of stress to your visitors would you? ;)

A link to our site is also a woeful omission: http://www.saferpak.com

Anyway that's my 2p worth Stoker I hope you can stick around and join in some of the Health & Safety discussions. I know how hard it is developing a web site so keep up the good work! :thumbup:

Regards,
Simon

Hi Every body,

My name is Eyad Sallam, I worked in the field of HSE or some call it HS&E and some people nowadays added to it another S to be HSSE Health safety security and environment management.

Actually without a digital camera a person in my job as HSE Coordinator or officer would never be able to investigate evidence of accidents or near-misses, it's a good tool to report to management and forward quality reports.

Hello Eyad,

Yes what a fantastic invention the digital camera was, much faster than a sketch. I can think of no better way to quickly and easily catch offenders and in cohorts with the digital cameras best friend ‘email' we can now rat on our colleagues almost instantaneously. :lol:

Joking aside I'd be lost without my digital camera. It is one of the modern day inventions that has definitely changed things for the better.

By the way if you want to share some of your Health & Safety photographs you can add them to the Members Gallery at the following link:
http://www.saferpak....&module=gallery

Anyway welcome to the forums Eyad; hope to speak with you some more real soon. :bye:

Regards,
Simon
