The Line Of Fire
Concise Length 9 min
The line separating safety from danger is sometimes quite small. To avoid crossing that line, we must:
1) Always be aware of the hazards around us.
2) Understand the machines and operations in our work areas.
3) Take the time to think about the possible consequences that may result from where we place our bodies or the actions we perform.
When we do this, we can avoid suddenly finding ourselves in the line of fire.
This program discusses many workplace hazards and outlines general principles that can help employees prevent these hazards from causing serious injuries and deaths. Featured are several incidents that illustrate the consequences of not noticing when we are in harm's way. Topics include hazards presented by gravity, moving machinery, flying debris and projectiles, automated equipment, moving vehicles, contact with stationary hazards, and the importance of observation and feedback.
