Potential Work Hazard in Sydney City Council  议会报告代写

(Safework.sa.gov.au, 2013)

  • Dust or spray in the air – this is hazardous as the dust or spray may contain harmful chemicals or infectious diseases. The cleaners should always be in their dust protective wear to avoid inhaling such dust and sprays while doing City cleaning and spraying.
  • Site structures in poor condition – some prove weak over time due to their deterioration and weathering which make them risky for the public or Council workers. It hazardous to the workers when they are doing their routine checks to assess its stability and to the general public coming into contact with it.
  • Sharp objects – these pose a risk of injury to the unware Council worker and the public. These sharp objects may be found in garbage collector centers and dumpsites. They are threats to the health of workers and the public who may come into contact with them.
  • Diseases – garbage in the collectors and dumpsites may have infectious pathogens which may cause serious diseases to the workers. Workers need to wear protective gloves when handling all types of garbage to shield themselves from such micro-organisms.
  • Accidents – these are incidents which may occur when driving Council vehicles or operating machinery at work. These mostly face the workers dealing with those machines.
  • Electrical hazards – when working in pits and tunnels where electric cables pass through, electric cables may not be insulated or power surges occur exposing workers to electric current.
  • Exposure to asbestos and pesticides – it becomes hazardous when working with them without protective gears. They are risky to workers and the public intact with treated areas.
  • Biological hazard indicators such as dead vegetation or animals, or ground that appears sterile. They are harmful to the workers assigned to clean them

Potential Hazards Risk Assessment –

Likelihood

Sharp objects  议会报告代写 Although they are not rampant, they are found in garbage sites and dump sites Wounds to the workers which might be infected with other contaminations Protect workers from such sharp debris. Workers should be encouraged to use gumboots and gloves at the campsite.

Harmful micro-organisms

Review of the Existing WHS Consulting Process  议会报告代写

In reference to Section 47 WHS Act 2011, PCBU must make necessary consultations with those affected by the WHS policies in the organization.

Sydney City Council has put efforts to make sure all the workers are engaged and their views are taken with regard to matters of health and safety of workers. To achieve this, the WHS Representatives arrange for seminars and forums in which workers are invited to contribute and discuss health and safety issues. In doing so, workers are motivated, better solutions to the health and safety are found, there is job satisfaction, more informed decisions are made and workers become identified with the WHS Policies of the organization. However, the organization is not able to integrate the workers feedback in their consultation process. The HSR and HSC have not been responsive to those reactions coming from the workers in their policy reviews after a consultation process.

Recommendations on the Consultation Process

Consultation is an obligation of any PCBU to the people affected by the decisions being made in the organization (Allan, McPhail and Wilkinson, 2008). It is an essential element of managing health and safety hazards. WHS is achieved when everyone affected is involved and proper communications made. The communication of these changes can effectively be achieved through internal memos, social media, and seminars. Effective health and safety consultation create greater awareness and commitment and bring a positive working environment.

悉尼市议会的潜在工作危害 议会报告代写

(Safework.sa.gov.au,2013年)

空气中的粉尘或喷雾-这很危险,因为粉尘或喷雾可能包含有害的化学物质或传染病。清洁工应始终穿着防尘服,以免在进行城市清洁和喷涂时吸入此类灰尘和喷雾。
场地结构状况不佳–随着时间的流逝,一些建筑物因其变质和风化而变得脆弱,这使它们对公众或市政局工作人员具有风险。当工人进行例行检查以评估其稳定性时,这对工人和对接触它的公众都是有害的。
锋利的物体–这些物体可能会给不知所措的安理会工作人员和公众带来伤害的风险。这些锋利的物体可能在垃圾收集中心和垃圾场中找到。它们对可能与之接触的工人和公众的健康构成威胁。
疾病-收集器和垃圾场中的垃圾可能具有传染性病原体,可能对工人造成严重疾病。工人在处理各种垃圾时必须戴防护手套,以保护自己免受此类微生物的侵害。
事故–这些是在工作中驾驶市政车辆或操作机械时可能发生的事故。这些人大多面对使用这些机器的工人。
电气危险–在通过电缆的井坑和隧道中工作时,电缆可能未绝缘或发生电涌,使工人接触电流。
接触石棉和杀虫剂–在没有防护装备的情况下接触石棉和杀虫剂会变得危险。它们对工人和公众在经过处理的区域完好无损。
生物危害指标,例如枯死的植物或动物,或无菌的地面。它们对指派清洁工人有害

审查现有的WHS咨询流程 议会报告代写

关于2011年WHS法案第47条,PCBU必须与组织中受WHS政策影响的人员进行必要的协商。

悉尼市议会已努力确保所有工人都参与进来,并就工人的健康和安全问题采取他们的观点。为此,WHS代表安排了研讨会和论坛,邀请工人就健康和安全问题做出贡献并进行讨论。这样做可以激励员工,找到更好的健康和安全解决方案,提高工作满意度,做出更明智的决策,并让员工符合组织的WHS政策。但是,组织无法将工人的反馈意见整合到他们的咨询过程中。在进行磋商后,HSR和HSC并未对工人在政策审查中做出的反应做出回应。

关于协商程序的建议

咨询是任何PCBU对受组织内决策影响的人员的义务(Allan,McPhail和Wilkinson,2008年)。它是管理健康和安全隐患的基本要素。当所有受影响的人都参与其中并进行适当的沟通时,就可以实现WHS。这些更改的沟通可以通过内部备忘录,社交媒体和研讨会来有效地实现。有效的健康与安全咨询可以提高意识和承担责任,并带来积极的工作环境。
