1.INTRODUCTION
1.1PURPOSE OF REPORT
I made this report based on the observation and tour made by me, thus it was my duty as the Occupational Health Manager of the company. From my tour in the factory, I saw and observed some of the operators were blatantly ignoring the safety regulations. To make the operators and workers alert the important of safety, I made this report so that they will follow the rules as I will standardize the rules and regulations of the company. Therefore through this report hopefully the managing director will take actions. Through my tour and observations of the factory, I came across a problem, that was the workers did not wear their special attires that should been put on during handling the material. The protective garments were safety hat, rubber gloves, rubber shoes and goggles. All of these garments were been supplied for the workers to be wore during their working hours. As their work were dangerous and as preventions they need to wear all of these garments. As a result, from my tour I came across too many workers did not wear their protective garments properly. For example, one’s wore rubber shoes and goggle only and one’s only wore rubber gloves. All of these situation was not suitable and dangerous and if an accident appear, these workers were under risk. Besides that, mostly workers were smoking and talking to each other while handling the material. I also noticed that one of the workers look very tired and sleepy. These situations were against the rules and regulations of the company. When doing the tour I also knew that the workers never been trained or listen to any emergency drills conduct by the company. Therefore they were lack of knowledge about the emergency drill. Even though this company is a small company but safety of the workers came first. Therefore as a way of preventing accident happened, I strictly suggest rules and regulations should come first. If many of the company workers met an accident therefore it would effects the productions as well. 1

Therefore, through this report I would like to recommend and propose actions that should be taken to prevent these problems from happening again.

1.2PROPOSAL FOR ACTIONS

Through the tour and observation made, I hereby propose the actions that could be considered and to be taken into actions by our company. Firstly, always make sure that workers should be alert on their job. Being awake and alert all the time while at work will not only prevent accidents from happening at work. It will also enhance the performance of the workers and can even earn them promotions or a salary increase. Most of the people who become involved with accidents at work are those who feel sleepy while working. Secondly, wearing the required uniform by our company. A worker who works in our factory has a greater chance of being involved in an accident. Thus, he should be more vigilant about the wearing of proper uniforms and other protective garments when working. They should never take safety to chance so always go to work with the proper dress code. If their work requires them to wear a hardhat helmet then wear it and so on and don’t just ignore the protective garments. Thirdly, workers should listen and actively participate during emergency drills – our work place need to conduct emergency drills to make sure our workers know what to do...
