I. Maintaining Workplace Health and Safety
Building and maintaining a culture of safety is essential in any organization regardless of the size of the
organization. Employers must always think of the safety of their workers in performing their duties and tasks.
An essential element in establishing such culture is by creatinga safety committee whose members are
coming from both the management tam and the employees body (Employees’ Union). Once this committee is
created, certain regulation and policies referring to the health, safety, and welfare of employees can be drawn
out. Proper and reliable documentation must be maintained in order to manage and promote the general health
and safety of all employees in an organization. Every employee must have their own health and safety record
and monitored by management through the safety committee (the Clinic or Health and Safety Office). Some
organizations keeps track and maintained the health and safety record through an employee’s Annual Physical
Examination.
II. Emergency Assistance
Every emergency situation is unexpected. We can only do so much in terms of preventing it but once it
happens, there is no better way of handling it than to be prepared for it. One of the best practices in maintaining
safety in the workplace is keeping the communication lines open and knowing where and how to get emergency
assistance for such eventuality. Whether at home, school, or work, we are constantly reminded and given
information about emergency numbers, that we most often ignored until such time that we need it. Keeping such
information in mind may spell the difference between life and death. It is best to know and keep in mind your
Local Emergency Response Team (ERT) hotline. These are the hotline numbers of your community or local
police station, fire department and ambulance services. If you cant find such posting around your community,
ask your nearest local government unit for such information.
Knowing how to contact your local ERT is just one part of ensuring emergency preparedness. Knowing
exactly where and how to get to key emergency facilities like medical clinics or health centers or hospitals is
another part of it. Identifying the best as well as alternative routes to get there would be also necessary.
Assignment: In your TLE notebook, list down the hotline numbers of your local ERT.
