Even if it 's just an all-in-one office printer, for example, you need to schedule maintenance for it especially if your employees heavily rely on it to complete their projects. By ensuring that your equipment is always in good working condition, you can be sure of delivering what 's expected by your customers from you at the earliest possible time. This will also allow your staff to focus on more important business matters because their current tasks are completed quickly. • Operational Safety Ensuring a device is in good condition will prevent accidents and injuries. With preventative maintenance, your mechanic or electrician will be able to determine the required repairs and fix them before they can malfunction.
Developing these skills will benefit you both inside and outside of work. Signs are an important in the workplace like fire exits to show people the exit in case of a fire. Example s of communications would be a text messages, emails, and hand signs.Safety in the workplace is very important and to prevent anyone from getting injured while in the workplace. Training is important in the workplace for all for all types of duties being carried out like using machinery equipment to using chemicals etc. before you can use any of these you will need the proper training so you can use them safety and correctly.
9. Treatment of acid mine drainage. 9.1. Active Treatment Active treatment involves addition of chemicals to the source of AMD and the stream contaminated by AMD, which raise the PH of the water and precipitate metals. However the chemicals are expensive and the treatment facility is expensive to construct and operate [Skousen 20].
It is important to always be aware of your surroundings no matter where you work, and to make sure you completely understand instructions and guidelines before commencing work on a project. Taking shortcuts can not only result in shoddy work, it can also mean putting yourself at risk for an accident. Supervisors should re-think assignments in order to prevent injuries. Make sure the right person is chosen for the job and that the time frame is manageable, not one that will leave an individual or team scrambling against an unrealistic deadline. 2.
The reflections of the compressive wave generate tensile and shear waves, which may propagate through pre-existing cracks and further widens them apart (Fourney, 1993) due to the phase difference between the two wave types. After stress wave, propagations and gases with high temperature and pressure expand the original borehole by extending radial cracks and penetrate into it. The high-pressure gases tear these cracks open and extend them. The explosive gases entrapped in the rock mass push the rock mass forward and bend the face causing flexural rupture (Ash, 1973). Shear fracturing occurs when the adjoining rock is displaced at different times or at different rates by the
• Check if the equipment is well positioned to prevent the risk of injury. Finally, there must be responsible employees of the equipment to make sure they are maintained in a safe condition. 6.2.4 Ergonomics Workers should be trained on ergonomics, shouldn’t work continuously and do many activities to avoid repetitive motions. 6.2.5 Fire Fire accidents are considered one of the greatest threats to a business, it can start anywhere and it can cause massive destruction. Establishments must be too careful to prevent fire
As they say, “everything works on paper”. But my construction experience has taught me the importance of visiting a job site before releasing plans for bidding or building. It is important to visit a job site and visualize the plan you want to implement, such as traffic control. This perspective of designing a roadway with a plan of it being built, reminds me to consider safety not only for the traveling public, but for the construction workers as well. Also, having the ability to read plans as an engineer does, then take a step back and read them as a contractor does.
Engineering and ethical lessons can be learned from this experience and failure. The structural engineers must always reexamine the final design under accurate building construction codes if there is a design change. The building code is the first criterion to prevent from potential risks. Also, engineers must uniformly communicate with other engineers and management involved in their project. Ambiguous communication will result in misunderstand of their responsibilities on the project.
The ADM coming from the gold mines contains heavy metals and high levels of radioactive uranium. And the very same water source ADM flows into is used for irrigation of crops, drinking water, washing and recreational purposes for those around the water sources.
This method is mostly used for the extraction of deposits which are nearly horizontal and mostly used in coal mining. Quarrying is a mining method which is used mostly in extraction of dimension stones. According to Hartman L & John M (2002), quarrying is same as open pit methods but the benches (which is called faces in this method) are smaller and vertical. The dimension stone which is produced by quarrying method is generally used in monuments, decorations and etc.  Auger or high wall mining is defined accordingly by Hartman L & John M (2002):  “Auger mining is a mining method that recovers coal or other minerals from under the highwall when the ultimate stripping ratio has been achieved in open cast mining operations.” The method can be described that, holes which is parallel to the coal seam is drilled into coal seam and brings out the coal from the holes.
