TEN SAFETY RULES FOR CHRISTMAS

Once again, the year is rounding up with Christmas celebrations and a great anticipation for the New Year. As usual, the Yuletide season comes with great excitement as many look forward to celebrating the season with family and loved ones thereby engaging in various activities to making it a memorable one. In view of this, Safety should be of utmost precedence as the festive atmosphere during the season, if not properly managed, may pose great danger to lives and properties. Therefore, in achieving a safe and healthy environment during this season, the following Safety Rules should be carefully considered:

1. PLAN

A Popular saying goes thus, “if you fail to plan then you plan to fail”. Planning this season ensures that needs and wants are arranged in order of priority. Every item needed should be purchased a Month before as things are more expensive this period. Planning also includes location for celebration, travelling details, events, attires, feeding and many more.

2. BUDGET

This is also very important as it allows for systematic spending and helps to check excessive expenditure. Furthermore, Salary and bonus received is advised to be split and a part of it kept in a savings account thereby ensuring that debts and financial crisis are avoided in the coming New Year.

3. HOME SAFETY

Safety in the home this season is critical and must be handled with great caution. This is because children will be on holiday, hence plans should be made either to apply for leave or get someone who is trustworthy, reliable and capable of looking after them. In addition, look out for small items that could pose a choking hazard to young children, including parts that have fallen off toys or from Christmas trees, small batteries and burst balloon.



4. AVOID FIREWORKS AND LOOSE DECORATIONS

Fireworks have lots of danger, young children tend to hold on to it, this should be avoided. Keep decorations and cards away from fires and other heat sources such as light fittings. Don't leave burning candles unattended, make sure you put them out before going to bed and do not put candles on Christmas trees.






5. PREVENT ACCIDENTS

Beware of trailing cables and wires in the rush to connect new gadgets and appliances and always read instructions. Falls are the most common accidents so try to keep clutter to a minimum. Make sure stairs are well-lit and free from obstacles.



6. PROPER HYGEINE

Wash your hands thoroughly and often before, during and after food preparation to avoid contamination thereby keeping food safe for consumption. Food should be properly processed and preserved as failure to do this may cause dehydration eventually leading to loss of life.


7. PROPER CAR MAINTENANCE

Ensure thorough servicing of cars and other automobiles before embarking on your journey. This includes checking Brake pads, tyres and other important parts of the car.

8. ENSURE CAR SAFETY
All necessary car emergency equipment; fire extinguisher and first aid kits should be fully re-charged. This can save your life and will also help to avoid issues with the Road Safety Officers.

9. PROPER JOURNEY MANAGEMENT
Travel plans and other functions to attend should be properly managed for the safety of the family. Plan long journeys so you won't be driving tired. This is also to ensure that health is managed.

10. MAINTAIN ROAD RULES AND REGULATIONS
Do not drink and drive. Follow the rules of the road and avoid speeding, even if it means you are a little late for the party or event and if possible do not drive alone.

7 Personal and Organizational Benefits of First Aid Certification

First Aid is the initial skilled assistance given to any person suffering a sudden illness or injury using available materials to preserve life and promote recovery before the arrival of professional medical help.
According to the European Resuscitation Council, there are approximately 700,000 cardiac arrest cases per year and survival to hospital discharge presently is approximately 5 – 10 %. Further to this, on a daily basis, organizations are confronted with accidents and the attendant issue of compensation which often times is very expensive. Online investigations reveal that not less than 200 cases of accidents occur daily in our Nation with an equally high rate of fatalities.

In response to this, Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require that in order to provide first aid to their employees who are injured or become ill at work, employers must have adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and trained personnel.

First Aid Certification is the means of ensuring the continuous update of knowledge and skills of laymen who serve as Designated First Aiders in various sectors of the economy from Oil and Gas to Hospitality, Education, Transportation and Manufacturing.

This Occupational Health and Safety certification is renewed every 3years.

Here are the 7 benefits of holding such certification.

Safety Implications of Fuel Scarcity
 There are several reactions by Nigerians to the present fuel crisis, ranging from black marketing on the road side, indiscriminate storage of fuel, thuggery at filling station etc. There are several safety breeches during this crisis such as:
Fuel storage: improper fuel storage could be a fire hazard, if we must store fuel at all cost, it’s advised we store in a metal container, kept away from naked light.
Fuel Adulteration:  At this point in time, we have a lot of adulterated fuel which affects car engine and generators. You are better off without fuel than to be “rich” in poor fuel which will in turn make you poorer after spending more to repair your car!
Fuel mobility: For the black marketers and those who stock fuel, we tend to over load our vehicles with fuel. This can ignite fire.
Stress: our stress level have been on the increase in these few days, to ensure our daily activities get running, we have had sleepless nights, midnight purchase, long queues, aggression at filling stations etc., trying to get fuel into our generators and cars. In a short time this will be over. It is advised that we keep calm.
In the cause of storage, we tend to suck out fuel with our mouth to transfer fuel into the cars or generators. This is dangerous to their health as a little quantity would be swallowed. Also most of this jerry can transfer are done on the road, offloading of fuel should done with care and vigilance.
