DESCARGAR OHSAS 18002 PDF

Based on OSHA definition the ergonomics can be defined simply as the study of work. More specifically, ergonomics is the science of designing the job to fit the worker, rather than physically forcing the worker's body to fit the job. Adapting tasks, work stations, tools, and equipment to fit the worker can help eliminate or reduce risk related to physical stress on a worker's body and eliminate many potent ially serious, disabling work-related musculoskeletal injuries and disorders MSDs. Industries increasingly require higher production rates and advances in technology to remain competitive and stay in business. As a result, jobs today can involve:. These factors —especially if coupled with poor machine design, tool, and workplace design or the use of improper tools —create physical stress on workers' bodies, which can lead to injury or disorder.

If OHS Risk Management does not include ergonomic approach, workers may have exposure to undue physical stress, strain, and overexertio n, including vibration, awkward postures, forceful exertions, repetitive motion, and heavy lifting. Recognizing ergonomic risk factors in the workplace is an essential first step in correcting hazards and improving worker protection. The case for effective management of occupational health and safety OHS is now overwhelming.

Not only is it a regulatory and ethical issue: studies have shown there are also sound economic reasons for reducing work- related accidents and ill health and for improving the quality of the work environment. The aim of BS is to improve the occupational health and safety performance of organizations by providing guidance on how management of OHS may be integrated with the management of other aspects of business performance.

BS is a guide and not an OHS management system spec ification against which existing management systems can be assessed and certified. In response to a need for a management system standard an international consortium of certification bodies produced OHSAS and OHSAS - Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series specification an d the accompanying OHSAS , Guidelines for the implementation of OHSAS , have been developed in response to urgent customer demand for a recognizable occupational health and safety management system standard against which their management systems can be assessed and certified.

OHSAS has been developed to be compatible with the ISO Quality and ISO Environmental management systems standards, in order to facilitate the integration of quality, environmental and occupat ional health and safety management systems by organizations, should they wish to do so. Clearly, effective OHS management will not just simply happen. From the outset there needs to be commitment at the highest level and a proactive approach from the organization to addressing all OHS issues.

This involves taking positive action to introduce and establish an OHS management system that is supported at every level throughout the organization, at all times. Initially, it may be perceived that OHS can be a serious drain on resources, offering little in financial return. In practice, it has been shown that reducing accidents, occupational illness, equipment and plant damage, etc will outweigh the costs. Benefits include:. Main reason to implement OHS risks management is:.

Risk Management looks at a broader range of losses than is typically considered by the traditional industrial safety practitioner. It allows the analyst and management to gauge the impact of various hazards on potential "targets" or "resources," including workers, the public, product quality, productivity, environment, facilities, and equipment. Risk Management relies on analysis, and not solely on past experience and standards.

When designing a new product or new job, no information may be available concerning previous mishaps; a review of history will have little value to the designer. As standards writing is a slow process relative to the development of new technology, a search for -and review of- relevant standards may not uncover all of the potential hazards posed by the new technology. Many analytical techniques support the identification of hazards and an assessment of their associated risk, with an aim to controlling that risk to acceptable levels.

Identification and analysis of dangers and hazards is based on detection of real and potential dangers, hazards and their characteristics. The dangers and hazards can be identified:. Ergonomics hazards represent very significant group of risk factors with negative effect on people. Ergonomists seek to understand the person- machine and person-workplace environment interface by answering question such as the following:.

What sort of physical burden is this job placing on the employee? How can this work area be improved to reduce that burden? What are the risk factor that contribute to the ergonomic burden?

Risk assessment can be defined as overall process of estimating the magnitude of risk and deciding whether or not the risk is acceptable.

On general level it is effective to use a simple technique for risk assessment, such as Risk Assessment Matrix. The Matrix can only be used for Identified Hazards. The matrix from figure 4 is proposed in three risk level:. The peoples must not be exposed to any not acceptable risk!

The consequences of risk related with ergonomic hazards are such as the following: low back pain, eye fatique and strain, sensitivity to light, blurred vision, changes in color perception, headache, neck strain, skin problems, stress, permanent hearing damage, cumulative trauma disorders, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc. Risk control is a part of risk management process focused at the control on unacceptable and temporarily acceptable risks with a goal to eliminate them or reduce them to an acceptable risk level.

It refers instead to a willingness by society as a whole — and in particular, by those affected in general - to live with a risk so as to secure certain benefits in the confidence that the risk is one that is worth taking and that it is being properly controlled. However, it does not imply that the risk will be acceptable to everyone, ie that everyone would agree without reservation to take the risk or have it imposed on them. Steel Kosice s.

Autor principal:. Steel Kosice, s. As a result, jobs today can involve: Frequ ent lifting, carrying, and pushing or pulling loads without help from other workers or devices — the negative effect of workforce optimization; Increasing specialization that requires the worker to perform only one function or movement for a long period of time or day after day; Working more than 8 hours a day; Working at a quicker pace of work, such as faster assembly line speeds; and Having tighter grips when using tools.

Benefits include: reductions in staff absence and in claims against the organization; reductions in adverse publicity; improved insurance liability rating and improved production output; a positive response from customers wanting to deal with an organization that has a successful OHS track record and which is unlikely to be disrupted by costly accidents or plant shut downs. Main reason to implement OHS risks management is: Protecting shareholder value by managing risk. Legal and systematic requirement.

Risk has many definitions: The expectation of loss. An expression of the combined severity and probability of loss. The longterm rate of loss; the loss rate value. Act How to improve next time?

Unknown Hazards Inputs Check Did things happen according to plan? Do Do what was planned! Plan What to do? How to do it? Definition of examined area 2. Analysis of examined area 3.

Ergonomists seek to understand the person- machine and person-workplace environment interface by answering question such as the following: What sort of physical burden is this job placing on the employee?

Conditionally Acceptable 2 2 Risk requires written, time limited countermeasures. Figure 5 — Risk Assessment Matrix. People should not be exposed to any conditionally acceptable risk. Work activity, related to the not acceptable risk, is forbidden to be performed until action decreasing risk size to a temporarily acceptable level at least are performed. RISK CONTROL Risk control is a part of risk management process focused at the control on unacceptable and temporarily acceptable risks with a goal to eliminate them or reduce them to an acceptable risk level.
