For All Industries

 

Construction

The economists underscore that a construction industry paves the way for economic recovery, revival and sustained growth. Good construction outsets should be free of accidents that wound, impair or kill workers, ruin the existing infrastructure, harm the environment or cause other damages.
However, construction is a high-risk industry. It comprises of a wide range of activities in construction, alteration, repair and removal of structures. Examples include residential and non-residential structures, from low-rise to high-rise, commercial, infrastructural construction such as the bridges, viaducts and aqueducts, tunnels, communication towers, roadway paving, trenching, excavations, conversions, renovations, demolitions, deconstructions, etc.
Accidents may have disastrous consequences for employees as well as organisations, so it is of utmost importance to ensure health and safety of workers, compliance with all SSHEQ construction requirements, from security and safety to delivered quality, required for long and optimal use of structures.

Examples of high-risk activities

In Australia alone, in the construction industry, several dozen workers are injured each day (35 average), and several dozen workers die every year (average 40 a year across 10 years, 2003-13).* Falling from scaffolds, stairways, mobile ramps, ladders and rooftops, injuries caused by heavy construction equipment, unguarded machinery, vehicle collisions, exposures to dust, heat, noise, high pressure gas, debris, wet surfaces, adverse elements and dangerous substances, being hit by falling or moving objects, being trapped between or in equipment, work in confined spaces, electrocutions, power tools injuries, and many other risks.

Any accident requires investigation that causes delays in execution, increases the cost of operation, which may impact the delivered quality and reputation of an organisation.

Fields to include in the construction industry database

The most common work-related injuries according to recorded statistics:

  • cuts and open wounds
  • sprains
  • strains
  • chronic joint condition
  • chronic muscle condition

Injuries were mainly due to:

  • hitting an object
  • being hit by an object
  • lifting object
  • pushing an object
  • pulling objects
  • falls from a height

Healthcare

Healthcare industry contributes the welfare of the society with the provision of its valuable services through hospitals, clinics, walk-in urgent ambulatory care centres, dental clinics, physical therapists, out-patient surgery centres, birthing centres, pediatric centres, home healthcare, nursing homes, etc.
Healthcare and social assistance industry report more injury and illness than a majority of other private sector industries, including the manufacturing. Similar is with the incidence rate for work related nonfatal injuries and illnesses; 25% higher rate compared to nonfatal injuries and illnesses in the rest of private industry.
In addition to the medical staff, working in hospitals and healthcare centres, healthcare facilities employ a wide variety of trades (service suppliers) that have higher health and safety risks associated with their line of work. These are mechanical and medical equipment maintenance, housekeeping, food service, building and grounds maintenance, construction, alteration, laundry, and administrative staff.

Examples of high-risk activities

Healthcare workers (and sometimes patients) face a number of serious safety and health risks. They include allergens and physical agents, blood-borne pathogens and biological hazards, potential exposures to drugs and anaesthetic gas, respiratory hazards, ergonomic hazards from repetitive tasks, lifting and use of medical equipment, safe patient handling, ionising radiation (x-rays, nuclear medicine), non-ionising radiation (lasers), exposures to chemicals like formaldehyde (used for preservation of specimens), ethylene oxide, glutaraldehyde and peracetic acid (used for disinfection), then numerous other chemicals used in healthcare laboratories and workplaces. All of these may affect alone or in combination with other factors and risks.

Steps to improvement:
  • Learn all relevant requirements and risks that apply to healthcare employers
  • Survey your workplaces for additional hazards
  • Develop good and comprehensive SSHEQ programs
  • Train your employees
  • Keep records, make reports and inform

Transportation

The transportation industry is essential for a prosperous economy. The number of new companies and workers joining the transportation industry grows each year, and it is, therefore, one of the highest fatality rate industries. In Australia alone, every year several dozen transportation workers are killed and several thousand compensation claims issued.
This industry provides valuable services through passenger transport and freight transport and all supporting sub-industries of those two, such as public and commercial transport; courier, taxi and bus services; private transport and postal services; vehicle parks, vehicle maintenance shops, etc.
Whilst in some countries, territories and legislations it is not compulsory to perform the root cause analysis (RCA) of incidents, operators in this high risk, high stakes industry benefit from incident analysis, to collate valuable data and acknowledge trends. Reports can be shared among the industry members to allow them learning from incidents, for in the transportation industry everyone is everyone else’s customer: an operator from one service is a commuter in other services. For safety and privacy concerns incidents can be de-identified.

Examples of high-risk activities

Workers in transportation industry face a number of serious safety and health risks. They include death and injuries from vehicle collisions, sprains and strains, diseases of the circulatory system, shift work, fatigue and physical fitness, unnecessary risk taking and other human factors that take priority over safety, discomfort, repetitive moves, poor vehicle design, manual handling of heavy weights, exposure to fumes, petrol, vibrations, fire and adverse elements, mechanical failures, noncompliance, irregular services, overloads, then exposure to threatening, disruptive, violent or intoxicated passengers, etc.

Regulations for the transportation industry

(Building your Secure SHEQ system, that considers all specific risks and counter-measures of your industry, according to standards and expectations.)

  1. Management information systems: Transport operators must develop their own management information system (MIS) based on their operating conditions, risks, incident history, and determined safety objectives.
  2. Maintenance management system: Accredited operators must develop their own maintenance management system (MMS) to ensure that their vehicles are safe and roadworthy whenever carrying the passengers. Specifically designed forms and reports in Secure SHEQ enable your staff and accredited inspectors access to quick and efficient MMS for your transport services.
  3. Submit a Notification of Bus Incident form within 72 hours of becoming aware of the incident.

Some of the hazards workers in transportation may face on a daily basis:

Manufacturing

Human work in manufacturing is so involving that it makes this industry a relatively high-risk industry. It is visible in higher than average level of fatalities, serious compensation claims and injuries. The especially vulnerable group are young workers in manufacturing (18-24 years old). Manufacturing spreads across many sub-industries. Those with the most severe SHEQ concerns are:

  • Food product manufacturing
  • Fabricated metal product manufacturing
  • Machinery and equipment manufacturing
  • Non-metallic mineral product manufacturing
  • Transport equipment manufacturing
  • Primary metal & metal product manufacturing

Other higher risk sub-industries are:

  • Textile, leather, clothing and footwear manufacturing
  • Wood products manufacturing
  • Pulp, paper and converted paper products manufacturing<
  • Polymer product and rubber products manufacturing
  • Machinery and equipment manufacturing
  • Furniture manufacturing.
Examples of high-risk activities

Workers in the manufacturing industry face and encounter a number of serious safety and health risks. They include vehicle incidents, being trapped between stationary and moving objects, being trapped by moving machinery, body stress, injuries from manual handling, musculoskeletal disorders, slips, trips and falls from height or on the same level, work with dangerous machinery and equipment, injuries by moving, flying or falling objects.

Further safety risks involve storing and handling of dangerous chemicals, exposures to dust, heat, cold, liquid, electricity. Other risks that may intensify health and safety risks include the design of the manufacturing plant, construction and supplying of plants, then labelling.

New standards and investigations into SHEQ issues across manufacturing industries are more common and obliging.

Engineering

Engineering industry spreads across several distinctive fields of human endeavour that involve much of human ingenuity and exposure to the established, but sometimes untried production processes. In such circumstances, SHEQ concerns must be taken proactively. The sub-industries that report most of serious safety and health risks include:

  • Automotive
  • Defence and security
  • Fabrication
  • Laboratories
  • Prototyping
  • Workshops (precision machining, mechanical overhauls, rebuilds, pipe and poly welding, surface protection, lining, etc.)
  • Field maintenance
  • Labour hire in engineering
  • Technical sales

Examples of high-risk activities

Workers in the engineering industry face a number of safety and health risks. They include vehicle incidents; being trapped between stationary and moving objects, being trapped by moving machinery; injuries by moving, flying or falling objects; body stress, injuries from manual handling, musculoskeletal disorders; slips, trips and falls; work with dangerous equipment; fatigue, mental stress; exposure to dangerous chemicals, heat, cold, dust, particles, electricity, various agents, etc.
Other risks that may intensify health and safety risks include the design of the engineering plants, stressful field work, demanding travel, non-standard shifts, etc.

Mining

Mining industry supplies other industries with raw material without which there is no solid economy nor technological advances. Within the mining industry’s scope we distinguish:

  1. Coal mining
  2. Metal ore mining
  3. Non-metallic mineral mining and quarrying
  4. Exploration and other mining services

Although the mining industry has responded to more SHEQ concerns in recent years, it is still relatively high-risk industry with third highest fatality rate. A varying range of activities in the mining industry comes with different levels of risk, which in turn depend on specific operating environments, such are:

  • Underground mining
  • Surface mining
  • Mineral processing
  • Work in remote and isolated areas
  • Corporate and operational management, plant location offices
  • Training activities in any of the above
Examples of high risk activities

Unlike in other industries, in the mining industry risks come from virtually all directions, and with potentially catastrophic outcomes in all aspects of the SHEQ. Any activity, process, material or substance, situation or a circumstance, bears significant health and safety hazards:

WORKPLACE: Control of the ground, like slope stability and susceptibility to seismic activity; rock falls and bursts; inrush of water or semi-solids; shaft winding or sinking; reliability of the mining plant, mobile plant, pumps, remote control equipment, etc.; heavy transport equipment; mine fires, explosions, gas outbursts; failure or loss of ventilation, airborne dust, radiation from rock strata or other sources; proximity to dangerous openings and tailings dams; exposure to methane, sodium cyanide and its products; any other risk determined by the subregulating authority, etc.

WORKFORCE: Body stress, injuries, musculoskeletal disorders; slips trips and falls, being hit by moving objects or machinery; caught under or in between objects or machinery; non-standard shifts, various human factors; risks inherent when working with high risk plants, equipment inspections and during (complex) shutdown producers.

MANAGEMENT: Employees in mining industries had high prevalence rates of exposure to potentially harmful work organisation characteristics.

ENVIRONMENT: In countries with abundant natural resources, mining industry also contributes to a significant environmental impact. In Australia for example, mining industry is the nation’s third-largest employer of environmental scientists. Thousands of specialists are employed in various disciplines, from water management experts to mine rehabilitation and closure advisers. Mining industry’s goal should be that mined land is available for further economic activities, conservation or community use.

Energy & Fuel

Energy and fuel production is one of the highest risk industries. The extraction of coal, oil, petroleum and natural gas, naturally occurring radioactive material, solar and wind energy and their supporting businesses and organisations employ many workers and impact the environment more directly than most of other human endeavours.
This industry’s infrastructure includes drilling wells for oil and gas, pipelines, refineries, production facilities of different fuels and fuel byproducts, oil and gas field exploration facilities, etc. In addition to traditionally harvested materials as an energy source, radioactive material like uranium can produce few million times the energy of coal. Responsible harvesting of natural resources used for fuels is another concern for this industry.

Examples of high risk activities

Wells and plants are often located in remote areas and require traveling long distances. Leading causes of oil and gas extraction worker fatalities and injuries include vehicle accidents, being struck-by, caught-in or caught-between objects and machinery; powered platforms and manlifts accidents; failing or damaged environmental controls; explosions and fires, blowouts, falls; exposure to noise and temperature extremes; frequent exposure to well gases and vapours, diesel machinery exhausts, gas, dust, fumes, then to chemicals such as hydrogen sulfide and respirable crystalline silica; fatigue from travel, repetitive movements and non-standard shifts; work in tanks and other confined spaces; injuries by cutting and welding tools, hot surfaces and frictional heat, natural elements, open flames, lightning, etc.

All of this and more contribute to the quality of byproducts and final products, possible contaminants in fuels, drop of quality or production rates, and many environmental hazards.

Offices

Contemporary problems in offices, such as use of the unnecessary and inadequate systems, poorly designed workplaces and workstations, meagre hardware and software solutions, lack of proper training, understaffing etc. relate to occupational stress, workplace bullying and overwork.

Inefficient and harmful work organisation facets like non-standard shifts, non-standard work arrangements, manual work, poor communication, stress, are relatively high in this sector.

Examples of risks

While high risks in offices might not always be obvious, there is a range of factors and risks that adversely impact the health and safety of office workers and may escalate into high risks very quickly. These include ergonomics and layout, poor workstation set-up, sedentary and manual handling tasks, electrical hazards, slip hazards, IR and UV radiation (prolonged work next to windows, heat sources etc.), poor lighting, inadequate temperature, noise levels, air quality, eye strain, repetitive strain injuries (Carpal tunnel syndrome, CTS), etc.

Agriculture

Agriculture industry feeds us all. Its sub-industries include sheep, beef cattle farming; grain farming; dairy cattle farming; poultry farming; fruit, tree nut, mushroom and vegetable growing, nursery and floriculture production, winemaking, beekeeping and other livestock farming and crop growing activities.

This industry as a whole is subject to risks coming from seasonal changes in local and global weather patterns, but the workers in this important sector of human activities are even more at risk: unlike in any other industry, agriculture employs more older workers and the highest number of self-employed. These two are important factors in the SHEQ analysis because the knowledge about, and the implementation of best SHEQ practices depends directly on its most vulnerable participants.

In Australia alone, the fatality rate for workers in agriculture is about 7 times higher than the fatality rate for workers in other private sectors (average of 3.5 per 100,000 in private sectors compared to close to 27 deaths per 100,000 in agriculture).

Every day, hundreds of agricultural workers suffer a serious lost-time work-related injury, and some of these become permanent disabilities.

Examples of high risk activities

About a half of all work related risks in agriculture come from vehicle and machinery injuries; the rest if from hand-tools and power-tools injuries, electrical hazards, falls from heights, muscular and skeletal sprains and twists; fatigue; noise-induced hearing loss; skin diseases, as well as from some cancers related to use of chemicals or prolonged sun exposure; lung diseases due to use of different chemicals, fertilisers and pesticides; exposure to excessive cold, heat, wind, rains, fire and lightning; then respiratory stress in grain bins, cellars, silos, in barns, pits, tanks, close to animal waste; animal-carried and -inflicted infections and illnesses, stings and bites. On large industrialised farms most serious injuries frequently involve the use of (heavy) agricultural machinery.

Maritime

The maritime industry is an old, and very diversified field of activities that include shipbuilding, ship-breaking and ship repair; commercial fishing; long-shoring; scrapping of vessels, work and maintenance in ports and waterways; movement of cargo, maintenance equipment, personnel, passengers, etc.

Examples of high risk activities

ON BOARD SHIPS: workers, contractors, and the infrastructure are exposed to dangers of slips, trips, falls, collisions; grounding, sinking, flooding, capsizing, structural failures, loss of stability, close quarter situations; overloads and loss of goods; machinery and equipment caused injuries; fire on board and other fire dangers; adverse weather, etc.

IN SHIPYARDS AND TERMINALS: workers are exposed various health and safety risks: to injuries from welding, cutting, heating; contact with electrical circuits and distribution boards; work in confined spaces such as drums, containers, ship's boilers and piping systems; work around deck and propulsion machinery; exposure to flammable liquids, paint removers, abrasives and toxic cleaning solvents; fall from scaffolds and ladders; work with fuels, dangerous chemicals and cargo such as vinyl chloride, benzene, benzidine, ethyleneimine, coal tar pitch volatiles, cadmium, lead, formaldehyde, methylene chloride, methyl chloromethyl ether, different carcinogens, etc.

Small businesses

Small businesses have less than 20 workers and often are single director companies or family businesses. Small business leaders are integral part of the main workplace and everyday decision making.

The engagement and expertise of a small business may stretch across various industries, therefore SHEQ rules and regulations required for a particular industry apply to small businesses, and sometimes more, because small businesses often are links or bridges in between two or more larger organisations in different industries.

Larger organisations in their SHEQ systems may treat small businesses as immediate or third-party contractors, often as suppliers of specialised products and services. Their SHEQ concerns also include how small businesses follow own SHEQ regulations and measure SHEQ performance.

Small business have an advantage; their nimble size allows that with solutions like Secure SHEQ, they react, record, analyse and create reports faster than larger organisations, especially when required to supply own reports which are to be included in the investigation of a larger organisation.
