Women Safety

It’s always better to view a situation in its totality. Many times when we look at a situation, we tend to view only a part of it because we are already biased in our approach. Safety of girls and women in India is a grave issue. To tackle the problem, a multi-thronged tactics is required. Skewed sex-ratio, ‘commodification’ of the female body through media and other popular means, patriarchal mind-set, lax justice system etc are some of the reasons why there is apparently an increase in incidents of assault on girls and women. First and foremost, exemplary punishment would be the best method of sending the correct message throughout the society. Potential criminals will be deterred once they see that justice is done and it is done within a time framework. Secondly, skewed sex ratio is bound to bring crimes into picture. India needs to be educated that girls should be allowed to live. Killing girls in the womb must be stopped. Again, exemplary punishment to the offenders will go a long way in improving the situation. Advertisements, films, television serials need to portray women as human beings and not just as sex-agents. Women and girls, like all other human beings, exist for many things apart from satisfying and fulfilling needs of the body. Presently, female element is being used for ‘peppering’ the show, the advertisement or the film. It settles the female with the concept of ‘masala’ in our minds. These along with patriarchal brining up give a kind of licence to the criminal’s mind to venture into the territory of violence. All elderly men of Haryana are not villains. Most of them want girls and women to be safe. Education, correct representation of women in media, transparency in social interaction of the two genders, liberal and accepting attitudes, and most importantly a speedy and…...

...has made major efforts to improve its safety program and, as a result, has seen a reduction in the number of injuries on the job. The amount of lost time, however, hasn’t decreased as much as expected. Upper management is looking for suggestions on other steps to take. Anna Perez, director of Human Resources, thinks one step that could help would be for the company to get involved in an off-the-job safety program. 1.) How should Anna describe this type of program to management? What is off-the-job safety? An off-the-job safety program is a logical extension of the occupational safety program and meets the same needs: reduction of costly employee absences due to incidents, injuries, or deaths; and commitment to employee well-being. 2.) What statistics can she provide to convince management that this subject merits attention? According to National Safety Council estimates, three out of four deaths and more than half of the injuries suffered by workers occur off the job. Annual production time lost due to off-the-job injuries averages 120 million days compared with 75 million days lost by workers injured in the workplace. 3.) What are three benefits a company can realize from expanding its safety program to include off-the-job safety? • reduction in lost production time and operating costs from both on-the job and off-the-job injuries • increased employee interest in the on-the-job safety program due to efforts in off-the-job safety • better public relations CASE......

...Safety Slogans Here are some safety slogans that will help you to make safety a way of life. [pic] Safety is a very important aspect of life, be it at home, out on the road, or at the workplace. Here is a collection of some great safety slogans that you can use on posters to stick up in your office or in your home, or use in presentations, or send as emails. Safety isn't just a slogan, it's a way of life. Better to be safe than to be sorry! Chance takers are accident makers. Be alert! Accidents hurt. A safer you is a safer me. Unprepared = Unsafe. Anyone driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac. The best car safety device is a rear-view mirror with a cop in it. Remember - Safety is not a job; it is a way of life. Safety is a cheap and effective insurance policy While on a ladder, never step back to admire your work Safety doesn't slow the job down but mishaps do. A spill, a slip, a hospital trip. Your safety is everyone's responsibility, especially yours. You can't get home, unless you're safe. Ignoring a warning can cause much mourning. The adage "look before you leap" is a lifesaver. The safe way is the right way When jogging, run against the traffic flow. Wear the right protective equipment for the job. Use the right tool for the job. Just because you always did it that way, doesn't make it right. Safety is something you learn from the start - Being accident......

... including tools and equipment which may be furnished by employees. All hazards involved in the use of power tools can be prevented by following five basic safety rules: • Keep all tools in good condition with regular maintenance. • Use the right tool for the job. • Examine each tool for damage before use. • Operate according to the manufacturer's instructions. • Provide and use the proper protective equipment. Note the following key points in this lesson: • Hazardous moving parts of a power tool need to be safeguarded. • All employers should caution employees that saw blades, knives, or other tools be directed away from aisle areas and other employees working in close proximity. • To protect the user from shock, tools must either have a three-wire cord with ground and be grounded, be double insulated or be powered by a lowvoltage isolation transformer. • Portable electric powered tools must meet the OSHA electrical requirements. • All jacks - lever and ratchet jacks, screw jacks and hydraulic jacks - must have a device that stops them from jacking up too high. Remember: Employees should be trained in the use of all tools - not just power tools. They should understand the potential hazards as well as the safety precautions to prevent those hazards from occurring. Appropriate personal  protective equipment, e.g.,  safety goggles, gloves, etc.,  should be worn due to hazards  that may be encountered while  using portable power tools and  hand tools.   ...

...What Was Cannot Always Be For decades women have fought for their rights for equality in a manly dominated world. Their right to have their voices heard rather than be shunned away into a hidden corner, their right to vote, and their right to be able to work in the professional fields as men do. They have struggled for their Godly given right, yet even after many women struggled just so that the women of today may be able to voice their opinions in an advancing world such as that of the 21st century, it is unfortunate to see that many women still continue to suffer, as they become victims of abuse, rape, and murder. India is a country where in a world of tradition which dates back to more centuries than one can count, education and moral values have always been held at a high level. However in a country where that is so, the Indian women are degraded daily as they become victims of the ignorance of many so to speak, as the criminals of the cities kidnap, rape, and murder these helpless women. It has become so that the further we step into the future, the more unsafe the streets have become for the women whether it is to walk around by themselves, and to carry on an errand or for a child to even go to school as some of the men have turned out to be some of the top rated criminals in the country have become the filth which degrades the nation of India, our values, and our women. These filthy scum’s are known are rapists. It isn’t something of an awe to call them as such,......

Ballew in Training & Development (UK), Sep Planning and 92 (10/9): p. 12 (4 pages) Recruitment Outlines the basic behavioural differences between men and women in the workplace (e.g. men tend to be comfortable with or, at least, expect 11 competition, women tend to be less comfortable with even friendly competition; and take the competitive aspect of work much more seriously), and examines the psychological background to their developmental differences together with evidence from interpersonal training that reveals differences in perceptions of work styles. Briefly summarizes current thinking about equal opportunities and sexual discrimination/harassment, and points to the value of experiential learning in sexual harassment awareness training and in creating a climate where men and women treat each other with more understanding and respect, thus enhancing the productivity of the whole organization.

...asbestos from the bottom of the pond fall within the definition of “Class II asbestos work”. A serious violation, one involving a substantial probability of physical harm and death requires a mandatory penalty of up to $1,000. A willful violation runs a considerably greater risk of penalty. In my opinion the damages happened because of company violations against the safety rules and the OSHA recommendations. “A four-day hearing was held before a Commission administrative law judge (“ALJ”).   In his decision and order, the ALJ vacated four violations, affirmed four violations as other-than-serious, affirmed three violations as de minimis, and assessed penalties totaling $1,800.00. The decision of the ALJ became the final order of the Commission.   Exercising jurisdiction pursuant to 29 U.S.C. § 660(a), this court denies Tierdael's petition for review, concluding that the plain and natural meaning of the regulation encompasses Tierdael's activity.” So depending on what stated above, the Tierdoel Construction Co. should pay for the damages caused by the asbestos pipe system because of their negligence of the safety requirements....

...Health, safety and nutrition Amanda Gonzalez Kaplan University CE220 Child Safety, Nutrition and Health Professor Mary Ball March 7, 2015 Parents are often asked what is the most important thing they look for when seeking a high quality childcare center, a healthy and safe environment is always at the top of the list. Early childhood professionals promote physical, mental health, appropriate nutrition and provide an emotionally, physically safe environment for young children in partnership with their families. Sound health, safety, and nutritional practices provide the foundation for development and learning. Good nutrition is critical to overall development of young children. Meals and snacks encourage good nutrition and eating habits. A safe environment prevents and reduces injuries for young children who are only beginning to recognize dangerous situations (Academics). With all this in mind, childcare providers must include parents in their efforts to create healthy and safe environments and teach healthy habits to the children in their child care program. There are numerous ways to help promote age appropriate learning activities that reinforce the importance of health, nutrition and safety. Children learn the best when they are doing things they enjoy. One age appropriate activity for the age range of 3-5 could be coloring. This activity is a great way for children to express their creativity while learning.......

...industry, Safety is one of the most critical factor. Research Objectives Literature Review At a time when many companies are emphasizing on improving their business processes, operational efficiency and enhancing pro people focus, safety is one of the most important areas of improvement. It becomes even more critical in a labor intensive industries like manufacturing and construction. Most of the industries have adopted a well set standard operating procedures and efforts are on to get it better day by day. The focus of our study has been to identify the factors which affects the safety awareness, minimizes accidents at workplace and as a result meets operational efficiency of the organization. When the effect of these factors are positive, we may conclude that the organization is people oriented. Previous Studies: One of the earlier studies in this area was conducted by Cox & Cox in the year 1991 for European industrial gas sector. It had considered five factors affecting the safety parameters – effectiveness of arrangements for safety, individual responsibility, individual skepticism, safeness of work environment and personal immunity. This study was done not keeping in mind any specific industry and later on further studies revealed that model and frameworks for employee attitudes to safety may be dependent on the context and hence a generic study for overall industry may not be appropriate. Subsequent study by Cox, Sue & Tomas in the year 1997 on......

Sign up to Safety campaign reveals that a million people use the services of the National Health Services (NHS) every 36 hours, with the majority being given care that is both safe and of high quality (NHS England, 2014). However, sometimes mistakes occur and patients are harmed as a result. Sign up to safe campaign shows that between 2011 and 2012, a total of 326 ’never events’ were reported to strategic health authorities (Glasper, 2014).This number can be reduced by addressing different safety measures, such as building a safety culture, leading and supporting staff, promote reporting, learning and sharing safety lessons and implementing solution to prevent harm (Glasper, 2014). Building Safety Culture An important component of a successful strategy to address these kinds of safety problems is the encouragement of personnel to be more forthcoming in reporting and disclosing errors, actual harm, and fear of being bullied. This instance will apply to all staff members, and everyone involved in caring for patient will know that their voices will be heard. For instance, where the leadership is concerned by being proactive, gaining input from the staffs about the improvements needed and addressing them with efficiency and urgency.

...Brandon Hines Safety, Health, and Environment Developing Today’s Safety Aspects In the last century, the modern aspects in safety for Process Technicians have helped make a better work environment, for those who make the products we use in our everyday lives. Many unfortunate, tragic, but educational events helped point the industry in the right direction. Through these events the industry has grown and developed newer safer equipment, improved its employee’s safety/well-being, and created a safer, more aware community. On December 3, 1984, a toxic gas cloud escaped from a chemical plant in Bhopal, India. The cloud slowly made its way into the community killing over two thousand people and seriously harming many others. The gas cloud was composed of methyl isocyanate (MIC). MIC is a major component used in the production of Sevin and Temik, pesticides used to control insect infestations and crop production in India. This was the first time that a major chemical manufacturer has had a deadly leak near a populated area. This helped show that the community needed to be more aware of what was around them. The industry began investigations to discover what really took place that day in order to prevent such an event from occurring again. The Union Carbide plant produced a wide range of pesticides that were very critical to the economy of India. For the production of these products, a number of steps were required. The first step was the reaction of carbon monoxide with......
