The information, tools, and resources provided in this course are designed to you, whether you're a worker or an employer, to identify, reduce, and eliminate construction-related hazards.
Like all construction companies, you need to tailor your construction safety management system (CSMS) to your own specific work operations and work environments. All subcontractors who agree to perform any part of the labor or material requirements of a contract [29 CFR 1926.13(c)]. After you have studied all of the course material and taken the module quizzes, you can take the final exam. Any good CSMS requires a periodic review, analysis, and performance evaluation to ensure that the system is operating as intended. In this module, we'll examine Total Quality Safety Management concepts that apply to all elements of the CSMS. It's important to think of safety as an important aspect of both product and process quality in the workplace.
After asking the questions above, you may discover that one or more improvements to your training program is necessary, it's important to carefully develop and implement the change through effective change management principles. One simple change management technique is to use the Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) Cycle, first developed by Dr.
This module will take a look at his 14 Points of Total Quality Safety Management as they relate to safety. Deming's 14 Points form some of the most important concepts and approaches to continuous quality improvement philosophy. Point 1: Create a constant purpose to improve the product and service, with the aim to be competitive, stay in business, and provide jobs. Management should be focused constantly on improving the safety of materials, equipment, workplace environment, and work practices today so that it can remain successful tomorrow.
Safety can never be understood or properly appreciated if only the short term view is taken by management.
The old philosophy accepts as fact that a certain level of injury and illness will result from a given process, and that the associated costs should represent one of many costs of doing business.
Prevent injuries and illnesses by continually analyzing and improving upstream factors such as work practices, equipment design, materials, and the workplace physical and cultural environment through education, training and recognition.
When we apply this principle to safety, Deming might consider relying on the results (defects) as measuring our success solely by counting the number of accidents (also defects) that occur. In safety, evaluating only results (lagging indicators) is like driving a car down the road and trying to stay in your lane by looking through a rear-view mirror. Safe equipment, materials, and chemicals may cost a little more but will save money in the long-term through fewer injuries and illnesses. Relying on a single supplier for safety equipment, such as personal protective equipment, may have many benefits.
Point 5: Improve constantly and forever the system of production and service, to improve quality and productivity, and thus constantly decrease costs. Management must integrate safety as an element of quality into operations so completely that it disappears as a separate function.
Currently many companies rely on the safety director or the human resources department to train safety. The supervisor cannot perform any of these responsibilities unless he or she thoroughly understands safety concepts and principles, the hazards in the workplace, and is competent to train those subjects specifically related to the workspace he or she controls.
There is no better way to demonstrate these principles of leadership than in making sure employees use safe work procedures in a workplace that is, itself, safe from hazards.
Driving out fear is the most important requirement when implementing a Total Quality Safety Management process.
In the TQM system, managers and supervisors drive out fear through a real commitment to fact-finding to improve the system, not fault-finding to punish someone. Competitive safety incentive programs: Reactive safety incentive programs that challenge departments to compete against each other for rewards set up a system that may promote illegal behaviors by creating situations where peer pressure causes the withholding of injury reports. Bringing management and labor together: Cooperation at all levels of the company to identify and correct hazards is very important. Point 10: Eliminate slogans, exhortations, and targets for the work force asking for zero defects and new levels of productivity.
If we set a goal to reduce accidents by 50%, we will design a less effective system to get us to the goal, but no farther. Point 11: Eliminate numerical quotas for the workforce, and eliminate management by objectives. The problem with measuring the success of a company's safety effort using incident rates is that once the rate has been reduced to what management feels is an acceptable level, complacency sets in, the effort to reduce incident rates relaxes, and incident rates begin the inevitable rise to previous unacceptable levels. In emphasizing TQM principles, the company may never realize sustained zero accident rates, but the critically important ingredient in a successful process, that of continually journeying closer to that end state would be realized. If management relies only on quotas in the "production" system, it causes them to look the other way when unsafe work practices and hazardous conditions exist. Remember, managers and employees should be held accountable only for what they can control. According to Deming, the responsibility of supervisors must be changed from sheer numbers to quality. Supervisors must ensure their workers receive equipment and materials that are as safe as possible.
Weekly or monthly safety education and training sessions, when conducted properly by supervisors, can go far in improving the performance of employees, and would send a strong message to all that safety is a core value in the company. 4.According to Deming, what is the most important requirement when implementing a Total Quality Safety Management process? This module will introduce you to general OSHA requirements for education and training in the construction industry. It’s very important for the employer to establish safety education and training for employees so that they know how to avoid and prevent of unsafe conditions at the construction worksite. Employers should also educate all employees on how to control or eliminate any hazards to which they are exposed. Employees required to handle or use poisons, caustics, and other harmful substances should be instructed on how to safely handle and use them, and first aid procedures if exposure occurs. Employees required to enter into confined or enclosed spaces should instructed as to the nature of the hazards involved, the necessary precautions to take, and how to use protective and emergency equipment.
Employers must inform employees about the hazards of all classified chemicals produced or imported. The employer must inform workers on the physical and health hazards associated with toxic and hazardous substances to which employees may be exposed on the worksite. Employers must provide workers and their designated representatives a right of access to relevant exposure and medical records.
After inspecting a job site, a designated person should identify and evaluate all potential hazards that may cause serious injuries and increase the probability of an accident.
The Safety Coordinator or other designated site safety person will appraise the skill and knowledge level of exposed workers, and provide any needed training. Training length and level of detail should be determined by the severity of the hazards and the requirements of OSHA.
Records should be maintained for all training sessions with descriptions of topics covered and names of workers trained. Step 1- Introduction: State and discuss the learning objectives and answer any questions the employee may have.
Step 2- Trainer shows and tells: In this step the trainee becomes familiar with each work practice and why it is important.
Step 3- Learner tells - Trainer shows: This step is necessary when exposure to hazards inherent in the procedure could cause serious harm. Step 6- Validate: After the conclusion of the OJT session, observe the employee perform in the actual workplace and question the employee to validate that the training has been successful and that the employee has adequate knowledge, skills, and a proper attitude about the work. Step 7- Document: The well-known OSHA adage, "if it isn't in writing, it didn't get done," is true for any kind of safety training. We have included a sample training certification in the final two sections of this module, and you can learn more about the OJT process in OSHAcademy Course 723. Safety and health work observations should be performed periodically by supervisors or designated observers. Notice that supervisor certification of competency is included as part of the training document.
On the second page of the certification, information about the subjects, performance exercises, and tests is described. The benefit of including this second page in the document is that it can also serve as a lesson plan for your training.

Did you know when you spend one dollar locally, you are contributing to the strength of your communities economy? Youth Services: Thrive Youth Resource Centre - Not sure what services are available for youth in the County of Renfrew? There is a two year transition period for workers who already meet the existing fall protection training requirements set out in section 26.2 of the Construction Regulation.
The new training requirements in the Occupational Health and Safety Awareness and Training Regulation will be in addition to the current training requirements under the Construction Regulation. Please Note: Upon receipt of this form we will contact your to obtain additional information and discuss your story. You should take a careful look at each element in your safety and health program to determine what is working and what changes are needed. Since we're talking about "life and limb," continuous evaluation and improvement of the CSMS is all the more important to make sure all elements are in place and effectively maintained. In this course, we'll address those concepts and principles that apply safety specifically to process safety. Process quality may be considered error-free work, and safety, as one element of process, can be thought of as injury-free work. The focus of this module is to better understand and apply each of Deming's 14 points to workplace safety. If management successfully communicates the clear, consistent message over the years that workplace safety is a core value (as stated in the mission statement), and if there are "no excuses" for accidents, the company can be successful in developing a world-class safety culture. Eliminate the need for inspection on a mass basis by building quality into the product in the first place. Management should write safety specifications that meet their requirements into pre-bid contracts.
Ensuring employees have high quality personal protective equipment is smart business when we realize that using quality PPE is actually a profit-center activity. Supplier representatives, calling on an employer over a period of years, will become familiar with the particular safety equipment needs of the employer.
It must be viewed by each employee, supervisor and manager as his or her personal responsibility; one that is important in not only improving the production process, but in saving lives. How many workers are properly educated and trained in supervisory, management, and leadership principles as they move up the corporate ladder?
The new employee receives a safety overview when hired, and a safety "expert," conducts more specific training related to the employee's job exercise.
They emphasize uncovering the weaknesses in the system that allowed unsafe work practices and hazardous conditions to exist. People in research, design, sales, and production must work as a team, to foresee problems of production and in use that may be encountered with the product or service. Consequently, the "walking wounded syndrome" develops that eventually results in increased injury costs and workers compensation premiums. Of course, the process designed to promote this kind of cooperation is called the safety committee (or safety improvement team).
Such exhortations only create adversarial relationships, as the bulk of the causes of low quality and low productivity belong to the system and thus lie beyond the power of the work force. If we set a zero-accident goal, we will design the more effective system to reach that goal. Managers think that by placing a safety poster every thirty feet on a wall, they have a successful safety awareness program. He would probably encourage management to do away with any numerical quotas or goals based solely on unpredictable measures such as incident frequency rates.
A “macho” (it is part of the job) attitude by management, under pressure to produce the numbers, results in higher rates of injury and illness.
Remove barriers that rob people in management and in engineering of their right to pride of workmanship. Employees should work at stations that have been ergonomically designed for them to decrease the possibility of strains and sprains, and repetitive motions disease which represent the greatest category of workplace injury and illness in the workforce today. Unfortunately, most companies do not see the wisdom in adopting the principle that to be successful today, each manager and employee in the company must be continually learning. We will not only look at the minimum requirements, but all address best practices in effective safety and health education programs.
It should be done where the task is performed, and hopefully the supervisor is conducting the training.
Answer questions and continue to demonstrate and explain until the employee understands what to do, when and why to do it, and how to do it.
The trainee explains the step, gets permission to perform the step and then carries out the step. Here's a great booklet that covers many OSHA training requirements and also gives you some ideas on training strategies. It outlines the subjects and exercises that need to be conducted to make sure required training is accomplished. The employer must inform employees on the _____ associated with toxic and hazardous substances to which employees may be exposed on the worksite.
Training length and level of detail should be determined by the severity of the hazards and _____. Specific observations or audits are especially critical for each of the following safety programs, except _____.
But whether they’re on a construction site, changing light bulbs in a warehouse, or performing outdoor utility work, employees often use aerial lifts to help them access work areas that would otherwise be almost impossible to get to.
The key components of the program include providing businesses in Renfrew County with coaching, educational seminars, business visitations and personalized ongoing service from Enterprise Renfrew County. To strengthen working relationships with community partners in order to expand and improve services to small business.

These workers will have until April 1, 2017 to complete an approved working at heights training program. Identifying needed improvements provides the basis for new safety and health objectives for the coming year.
All the company can do is to try hard to produce a product that fits the customer's definition of quality. When an injury occurs, the "event" increases the number of unnecessary and wasted steps in the production process. Edwards Deming, who is considered the father of total quality management, to transform the industry of Japan after World War II. If a company considers safety only a priority that may be changed when convenient, constancy of purpose is not communicated to the workforce.
Western management must awaken to the challenge, must learn their responsibilities, and take on leadership for a change.
Only understanding of the long term benefits will give management the vision to properly and consistently send and act on the message of workplace safety.
Move toward a single supplier for any one item, on a long-term relationship of loyalty and trust.
Even today, manufacturers of equipment and machinery sell equipment that does not meet NEC, NIOSH, ANSI, or other safety standards for product safety.
The employer who establishes a long-term close relationship with the supplier is more likely to receive the attention and higher quality equipment when requested.
Have you ever been in a situation where the worker who "makes the most widgets" gets promoted? The supervisor, in many instances, does not think he or she is getting paid to train safety. Supervision of management is in need of overhaul, as well as supervision of production workers. They educate and train everyone so that those weaknesses are strengthened, thus helping to continually improve the production process. Employees, for the most part, ignore the posters, and may not believe the message that management is trying to convey. On the other hand, ignorance of the concept of random variability also means that work groups often get good safety ratings when they do not deserve them.
This reactive management approach to loss control, based on end results (defects), creates an endless cycle of rising and falling incident rates. He would stress the need to measure upstream activities such as the degree of safety education and training, number of safety meetings, individual safe work behaviors, and the safety of materials, chemicals, and equipment purchased by the company.
Very little thought is given to the human tragedy involved with serious injuries or fatalities.
Workers require and deserve the highest quality personal protective equipment to protect them from workplace hazards.
Currently, most employees receive very little safety training, internal or external, on safety related topics.
We have published a new cookies policy, which you should read to find out more about the cookies we use. Dolan's innovation led to securing new business partnerships, developing a user base, and expanding into his latest wearable technology endeveour to monitor a range of chronic conditions in addition to epilepsy.
Their youthful and energetic style and never-say-die attitude led Clodhoppers to a point where it was ranked amongst the top candy brands in Canada according to A.C. Ontario pays the interest on your Ontario Student Loans (including the Ontario portion of Canada-Ontario Integrated Student Loans) while interest still accumulates on your Canada Student Loans (including the Canada portion of Canada-Ontario Integrated Student Loans). During this six-month grace period extension, Ontario will also pay the monthly interest on ALL of your outstanding full-time OSAP loans. As the GTHA continues to grow, the government is committed to enhancing and expanding the Greenbelt to protect this resource, helping to ensure that Ontario continues to grow fresh food to be served at tables across the province and around the world.
Developing and implementing new action plans for those improvements will ensure continued progress towards an effective safety and health program.
When the product is designed to prevent injury or illness, the customer will define the product as safe. He promoted the PDSA Cycle that was partly responsible for Japan's meteoric rise in manufacturing.
Employers purchasing such equipment run increased risk of injury and illness to their employers. If you spend $5,000 in various types of PPE in a given year and any one piece of PPE prevents a serious injury, your company has just paid for all the PPE they’ll need for that year and probably for many years into the future.
Developing a close, cooperative partnership between the employer and the supplier of safety equipment is extremely important for the success of both parties, and is possible by applying the single supplier principle. What safety process or procedure might be standardized to improve your company's safety and health management system? But, who is better suited to do the training than the person responsible for the safety and health of his or her employees? It influences the standards of behavior and performance of its employees by creating cultural norms in the workplace that dictate what are, and are not acceptable behaviors.
They recognize employees for appropriate safety behaviors; compliance with safety rules, reporting injuries immediately, and reporting hazards in the workplace.
Employees will do virtually anything, in some cases, to ensure the department gets their pizza parties, saving bonds, or safety mugs. Deming offers some interesting ideas here, but they are crucial to success in safety as well as production. The highest quality safety equipment, materials and environment all contribute to pride of workmanship. If the effort does not have the blessing of the CEO (with action); the transformation may never be successful. Ultimately, you are attempting to change culture and that process can, and probably will, take years. I understand that failure to comply with these requirements may result in progressive discipline (or corrective actions) up to and including termination.
After the grace period has ended, you are required to start making your monthly payments (of principal plus interest) on your outstanding full-time OSAP loans. He believed that statistics hold the key to improving processes, and that management must take responsibility for quality in the workplace because management controls the processes.
The money spent on quality PPE should be thought of as an investment that may result in substantial returns (reduced direct and indirect accident costs) to the company. If the supervisor cannot train safety, how can he or she have the knowledge to effectively oversee safe work practices?
Management may rely solely on safety rules and progressive discipline (negative reinforcement) in their attempt to control the safety behavior and performance of its employees. The related safety goal might be "zero accidents." Although this goal may be unachievable, it's the only morally appropriate goal to have because we are dealing with injuries and fatalities.
Management must understand the danger of the pressure ever-increasing quotas place on supervisors and employees. The safety committee may serve as the catalyst to initially begin the planning for the transformation. The grant money will be used to purchase equipment, and supplies to increase production to meet supply demands. Chris & Larry have been recognized for their sales and marketing techniques in media and publications such as CBC's Venture, CNN's Mavericks of the Morning and in Fortune's Small Business magazine. The reader is, however, referred to the Corporations Act and the Regulations to examine those sections not set out here. Unfortunately, some companies do not take safety into consideration when designing their products.
However, a strategy such as this, that may be successful in forcing compliance, is never successful in producing excellence in product or process. Morale and motivation improve because employees are not afraid to report safety concerns to management.
Expanding the size of the committee, then breaking it into "safety teams" specializing in various process functions in the company might be a way to go. In 2006 Clodhoppers was sold to Brookside Foods, a leading Canadian chocolate manufacturer. Consequently, they may unintentionally design unsafe or unhealthful features into their products.
If we reach the goal, we pat ourselves on our collective back, sit back with our feet up on the desk, and believe we "have arrived." When this occurs, you can bet your accident rate will start rising once again. However, educating up is crucial if top management balks at the need for the transformation. What develops from such a strategy is a controlling, compliance driven climate of mistrust and disgust; only a shell of an effective safety and health management system.
