[Music] [Music] Maritime Training Services Inc. [Tense Music] Safety at sea requires that we develop a safety culture in an environment where safety become an everyday priority and a process of continuous improvement. [Victorious Music] In this program, we're going to look at some of everyday work practices that can be improved with a greater attention to personal safety and injury prevention. We'll highlight the use of the six essential pieces of personal protective equipment. Boiler suit, steel-toed safety shoes, safety helmets, ear protection, gloves and goggles. We'll also feature a commentary by Loss Prevention Expert, Richard Bracken, whose book "Personal Injury Prevention, A Guide to Good Practice." is the best authority on the subject. We can quantify cost, we can quantify their repatriation cost, and all those type of things. But at the end of the day, people don't want to get hurt. And uh, they don't want to let the side down. Hey, there. Are you done mopping, yet? Hey! There's a right way and the wrong way to approach safety. We'll show you both using a little humor to make the contrast more obvious. [bird chirping] [Engine roaring] Hey! Are you sleeping on the job? [faulty sound] Ships that succeeded building a safety culture do four things well. They identify their safety problems and concerns. They provide proper equipment and training. They make safety and everyday priority. And they develop reporting systems, so they can improve and take corrective action. Let's take a look at how it works. [Music] Personal injury prevention isn't just about wearing the right equipment. It's also about interacting with your environment too. The tools and the machinery that help you get the work done, are also potentially hazardous if they're handled correctly. [Funny music] [Tense music] [Funny music] [Hammering thud] [Funny music] What are you doing? I'm trying to get this opened. You never get it opened with that. There's always the right too for the job. Now, back-off! There is always a right tool for every job. [Loud thud] Just need to know which tool it is. [Funny Music] [Faulty sound] Unfortunately, far too many accidents still occur in workshops, machinery spaces, and on deck, when using hand-held in machine tools. Using tool of machinery properly means knowing the right procedures and using the right protective equipment. Always wear approved and appropriate eye protection when there's any chance of eye injury. In the case of welding or other hot work, you'll need more protection. Fire resistant clothing, welding gauntlets, and an approved welding visor. A standby or back up partner who's on site to lend assistance and help in case of trouble is essential. Keep the workshop are clean, tidy, and uncluttered. Guards must be fitted on all machinery. All tools should be stowed carefully and returned after use. And always make sure you know how and where to stop a machine before you started. All machine should be cleaned and swept down after use. Don't use compressed air when cleaning the workshop. Flying debris can do great harm. Don't be complacent. Just because you're familiar with the tool or machine, doesn't mean you should let down your guard. You started getting into the [inaudible] and sunshine by forgotten more than you know. And really, there's no place for that type of thinking, that way of thinking in a modern ship. We've recognized a problem and I think we've got to move on from that. And everybody's got to learn together, it's an evolving process. The day we think we know it all, is the day we have an accident. [Music] [Funny tense music] [Funny upbeat music] Working on deck requires attention both to your own personal safety and to correct procedures. [Funny Music] What are you doing now? Back-off! Here, I'll show you how to do it. [spitting sound] Ah! You got to have a good grip. [grunting] [faulty sound] Back problems are one of the most commonly occurring chronic injuries suffered on ship. They're the result of trying to lift something to heavy or lifting improperly. Use of a back support is recommended from manual lifting. However, the key is posture. Use the leg muscles, not your back. This red button here allows us to also turned on and off remotely. So watch over that light there, when it turned off... Ship have many types of lifting equipment that requires safe operating procedures. There are universally acknowledged hand signals, which are used to communicate among crew members when lifting. When using lifting equipment, never lift people. Keep off. Always operate within Safe Working Load limits. Never use lifting equipment to drag loads. Secure and lock lifting equipment when it's not in use. And use a signalman when appropriate who is in visual contact with the operator and any other personnel involved. An important part of working on deck is simply staying out of the way of operation that might be hazardous. This apply especially to cargo operations, lifting operations during maintenance, mooring and anchoring. Know what's happening on deck, and who's responsible. If you're not needed for a particular operation, stay clear. Come on! Come on! [Funny Music] Safe ships clearly identify safe transit lanes for personnel and areas that requires extra caution. They post warning sign and safety notices indicating where a cargo work is underway, and other relevant information. They maintain constant communication on ship and on shore, to ensure that all relevant safety procedures are enforced. You want everybody to play in the same direction, everybody playing the same game. So, if you can build some relation between a different parties; the load master, the chief officer on-board the ship, build a relationship. They'll make you aware of what's going on, you make them aware of what you're doing, what you're consider important. If you want everybody to come and aboard your ship wearing a hard hat, then you tell them that. And if they don't want to do it, then you provide them with it. Ensure that the gang-way or any other means of access is rigged correctly. Gang-way should be adjusted to suit prevailing conditions, have effective safety net and be well-lit. It's important that are procedure in place to greet, register, and accompanied guests who may not be familiar with your safety practices. Ear muffs and the goggles. And when you down the engine room... Ideally we would have a box of safety equipment at the gang-way maybe at the top of the gang-way, so when somebody comes on board you're saying to them, "Okay. You're entering our environment, now." "We want you to wear a hard hat, and just to make sure we've got one here for you. We've got coveralls and if you haven't got safety shoes on, and you haven't got the rest of the equipment, I'm afraid you can't come aboard. When you go on deck, your environment changes. You must be aware of what's going on. You must wear correct equipment and you must think safety first. [Music] Staying safe at sea means expecting the best, but being prepared for the worst. In this final segment, we'll look at the way of planning and preparation can help you anticipate problems and deal with them if they occur. [Funny Tense Music] No matter how many signs we post or reminders we make, accidents still happen. What are you doing now? I'm just cleaning up these brushes. You don't know what work is. That's not work! [Funny Music] [explosion sound] [squeaking sound] [glass shattered] [faulty sound] The reason that I liked people to try this step on ahead of time is because in emergency situation we don't want you to have any surprise. We want you to know what to expect when you get to this step. There we go. On-board training should always include the use of ship-board emergency equipment and the review of emergency procedures. [Tense Music] There's should be emergency procedures in place for hot work incidents, for oil leaks or spills, for galley emergencies, electrical accidents, and for incinerator problems. Don't take any environment for granted. You've got to think of every environment is a potentially dangerous environment. As we looked around the room, there's a deep fat fryer, there's a cooker, there's an oven, a baking stove. All this equipment is potentially dangerous. Sharp objects, sharp knives, different considerations, and that the people working on this environment, I've got to take into account. [Tense Music] [People talking indistinctly] Even with effective precaution and procedures thing can still go wrong. Consequently, there is no substitute for drills such as this one, involving coordination between shore side and ship-board firefighters. The more realistic the drill, and be appraisal of your result, the better. And an essential part of an effective safety culture is feedback, evaluation. Don't worry about mistakes, just make sure you learned from them. It's a case of gathering the information together, and then deciding how best to adopt best practices to improve it. - So, it's continually evolving... - That's the closing of the loop there. And that's really... And that's where the likes of STCW are so important, and they really have brought shipping into the modern era of simple practices procedures, and sort of this... closing of the loop which is so important. Building a safety culture turned a challenge into an opportunity. To run a better, more efficient, and a more productive ship with less hazard to people, equipment, and cargo. To sum it up then, includes safety in all familiarization of new crew members. Remember, effective drills are among the best training tools, along with continuous safety training. Approach work training conscientiously, and with safety upper most in your mind. Finally, wear the six essentials pieces of personal protective equipment. When you're going to your work place, in the workplace, or coming back from the workplace, you should wear that safety equipment right up, really, into the changing rooms, when you come out of the engine room or when you go into your cabin and take-off your hard-hat hang it on the hook, whatever, where ever you keep your equipment. Some people keep it in their cabin, some have a locker room, whatever. That's the time when you take-off the safety equipment, but you don't also drop the safety culture. We like to offer our special thanks to author, Richard Bracken, for his contribution for this program, to the crews and their ship that help us in the taping, and even to our misguided [inaudible], Nigel. You now know that safety and personal injury prevention is an evolving process. It requires your commitment to continuous improvement and your attention. Remember, be careful. Just when you think you've got it all figured out, accidents happen. [Tense Music] [Music Playing]
