Sites Safety Regulations,Employees Responsibilities.

Beware of floor openings and ensure that they are fenced or covered. Remove refuse as soon as possible,Provide sufficient lighting. Familiarize with the location and the operation of fire fighting equipment. Safety measures, Before you operate a machine ensure that the dangerous part of the. machine has been installed with a guard, Avoid going to any area with insufficient lighting as there may be some.
dangerous places which have not been provided with fencing. Keep vigilant all the time and watch out for moving cranes hooks or. other lifting equipment, Before you use any electrical installation or tool check the condition of. its electric cables, Avoid dragging electric cables on the ground or allowing the cables to. come into contact with water, Use electrical tools installed with an earth leakage circuit breaker.

What dangerous situation the alarm refers to,The routes for evacuation. The safe place that you should go to as designated by the company. When someone is found seriously injured you should. Seek help immediately,Accompany the injured person. Assist in the immediate rescue work as far as possible. Call the site safety staff, Do not try to move the injured person unless it is really necessary.
Do not tamper with the accident scene while waiting for the arrival. of the investigation team,When a fire breaks out you should remember. Put out the fire with a fire extinguisher if it is a small fire.
