Last week we had a TRI when a Bulk Loader Driver fell as he was pulling on a silo product valve. He stumbled and fell backwards breaking a bone in his hand as he put his arm down to cushion his fall. Apparently there was a known issue with the valve being stiffer than others in the same area, but this had not been reported via a Near Miss Hazard alert card.
Please remember to use a Near Miss Hazard Alert Card every time you think something is unsafe – however trivial you think it might be. It could mean the difference between someone getting hurt or not.
It is up to us all to look out for anything that might be a potential danger at work – Look after yourselves and each other.
