Just because there are no ‘nasty chemicals’ or ‘dangerous
factory machines’ in the typical office environment, it does not mean
that serious (and fatal) accidents and causes of ill-health cannot occur.
de Silva safety Services is well versed in analyzing hazards and recommending workable and cost-effective solutions.
Construction sites can be inherently unsafe places of work; yet with proper planning, supervision, management, equipment, training and inspection, the likelihood of accidents, injuries, damage and downtime can be significantly reduced.
Vehicle Service Workshops
The hazards found in vehicle service workshops are many and varied, ranging from lifting equipment to the use and handling of chemicals, from manual handling to slips, trips and falls. However, with proper planning, supervision, management, equipment, training and inspection, the likelihood of accidents, injuries, damage and downtime can be significantly reduced.
The most significant hazards found in warehouses include the movement of loads, both manually and by mechanised or powered equipment, collision, crushing and entrapment between powered handling equipment and pedestrian workers, and falls of stock.
Light Industrial Units
Light industrial units can present a wide range of different hazards, ranging from industrial machinery, chemical substances, noise, dust, vapours, fire, manual handling, storage, packagings, mechanised movements, goods received and dispatch.
Shops & Retail Units
The number of hazards in a retail unit should be designed out so that members of the public – the customer with whom you want to maintain ongoing custom with – do not become injured. Staff will be familiar with their workplace, but customers will not necessarily be aware of the dangers that could affect their safety.
