What If?

Published date: March 14, 2019

What if it had been done differently; what if it had been done at another time; what if there had been another worker or supervisor? These are the types of questions put forward after an incident but with the clarity of twenty/twenty hindsight. These questions haunt us as we try to justify the unjustifiable. The very essence of these “What if” questions is the need to know what should be done before it is done.

The “What if” questions can be brought to play when there have been failures in the barriers that are there to shield us in respect of Personal Safety, Occupational Health Safety, Engineering Safety, Process Safety, Fire Safety, Chemical Safety.

Everyone learns from incidents but do we remember the lessons learned or are these lessons forgotten and not applied? The more horrific the incident the more likely the lessons will be remembered. In order not to have to go through the pain cycle – incident          harm          pain         loss          lesson learned – regulations and good practice guidelines should be learned and followed.                     

OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration of the U.S.A.) is a world leader in safety guidelines and regulations. It is followed throughout the USA and in many other countries as well as in multinational organisations.

The key issues are to:

  • Improve workplace safety and health by reducing injuries, illnesses, and fatalities
  • Change workplace culture by increasing employer and employee commitment to improved safety and health

OSHA regulations have no fudge factors but are precise, to the point, detailed and functional in their guidelines.

EuroMaTech’s OSHA training course covers a great number of good practice controls as well as what OSHA regulations state on controls of different hazards and OSHA’s recommendations for Safety Management Systems. The hazards covered are physical and chemical standards as well as some technical standards such as confined spaces and the need for extra care in start-up operations.
