IDENTIFYING AND EVALUATING WORKPLACE HAZARDS

An integral part of maintaining a safe and healthful workplace is to identify hazardous conditions in the workplace. The two main methods by which this is accomplished are:

  • Accident investigations and evaluations, and
  • Health and safety inspections.

ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION AND EVALUATION

SUPERVISOR

In the event of an occupational accident or illness, the Supervisor of the employee involved will immediately conduct an investigation of the facts and circumstances underlying such accident or illness in an effort to identify any underlying unsafe or unhealthy condition. In doing so, the Supervisor will complete an Accident Investigation form (Form No. CF0-00) for every condition of the workplace that has or is alleged to have caused or contributed to any such occupational accident or illness in the Supervisor's area of responsibility. A copy of such form will be filed with the Safety Director immediately after the completion of the investigation.

SAFETY DIRECTOR

The Safety Director will assist Management, Supervisors and the Board to conduct their investigation of any occupational injury or illness. The Safety Director may also conduct his or her own investigations of any such illness or injury.

SAFETY REVIEW BOARD

The Board may conduct its own investigation of any occupational injury or illness, in which event it shall prepare a written report of its findings which will become a part of its minutes at the next regularly scheduled Board meeting.

Records of all occupational injuries and illness shall be maintained utilizing CAL/OSHA Form 200, entitled "LOG OF OCCUPATIONAL INJURIES AND ILLNESS." The Safety Director is responsible for maintaining this log. All occupational injuries and illnesses shall be reported to the Division of Labor Statistics and Research. The Safety Director will complete our third party Workers' Compensation Administrator's Form 5020, entitled "EMPLOYER'S REPORT OF INJURY," and send the same to our third party Workers' Compensation Administrator within 48 hours of any occupational injury or illness, and confirm that the required report of any such illness or injury is made in a timely manner to the Division of Labor Statistics and Research. The Corporate Safety Director is to maintain a file of all accident and illness reports.
