Introduction

Accidents normally happen in work places . Especial y work stations that deal with heavy

Machines and industries .They are normally dire and consequential .Most industrial accidents have caused many people death and long term suffering to the individuals involved.

These accidents can be prevented if proper proper accident reverential plan is adopted as explained in detail in this report.

Most industrial accidents have caused companies and individuals a lot.Companies have lost their hard earned revenue in making up for this in the past.Some accidents have had other companies face closure because of simple mistakes.

Operating licenses have been revoked for some companies.Getting these licenses back could be a nightmare if impossible.

Governments worldwide have strict rules to be adhered to when establishing a company.Most of these rules are meant to protect the workers and consumers of the products of these companies.They are for the good and benefit of everyone and every individual within or otside the company.

The environmentally ,when there are industrial accidents , suffers a lot.Cases of fumes exhumed to the environment have lead to global warming .This is because most of these

Fumes consume the ozone layer.Some of them cover the globe as a blanket or technically

Global warming phenomenon.Animals living in the antarctic and other cold environments

Have moved to habitats hoisting humans .This is dangerous to mankind.Water levels in the sea and lakes increase to the mainland where humans live.Dangerous as well.

Socially,accidents demoralize individuals when they get permanent disabilities.

People who lose their bread winners suffer since they will have no one to look up to.

The society at large will lose very many people of importance and role models if safety i industries is not guaranteed.

For companies dealing in electronics and mechanics,like this one, industrial accidents can be very dire and life threatening.

Heavy machines like the fork lift if manhandled can be dangerous.Fork lift for instance can injure fellow employs if mishandled and used in appropriately.Conveyors have very may reported cases of causing accidents .They can blow in operators clothing and within a second,the person is no longer .Dangerous.

Hoists has reported cases of the load in them falling to the people working under it or just malfunctioning and causing injuries.

Meal punch presses have caused may operators to loose their fingers.Most of them have had them chopped off.

When operating a Metal bending and cutting machines ,care should be taken at all cost.These machines pose the most risk since It works on bare .They can roll metals with the operators if they are not careful.Personally i know of many people who have been injured by these machines .Most of them have their hands amputated if they are lucky enough to survive

   Plastic injection molding machines are nom-ally hot as they are used to mould plastics.They normally cause fire accidents . Cere should be handles since most of the equipments in the working area could catch fire easily.Flammable equipments should be kep far away from this equipments .

Plastic sheet forming equipment are normal y not that dangerous but if in any case mishandled,they can cause accidents.Nothing provided it’s a machine in a workplace can”t cause accidents if mishandled.

  Shearing machine for sheet plastic can cause cutting of the operator and other people. This one of the most dangerous equipments since they are sharp at all times. They cause deep cuts to the victims.

Accidents are not only caused by these factory equipments.There are many other causes of accidents within the factory that can directly or indirectly cause accidents.Care and safety should be the top priority at all time

A. Purpose & Intentions

The main purpose and intention of this is to ensure that all the employees’ safety is never put at risk.Their safety and health are the priorities of the company .Never ever should their health put at risk.

The main reason for emphasizing this is because when the employees are healthy ,their full potential is recognised.They will work for the company with their full strength hence making the company realize more profits at the end of it all.

Further more ,when employees are in good health,their social morale is boosted .

Their full potential is achieved and the company will get the best out of them.

The company will not waste a lot of time when the employees are absent. Obviously when accidents are not prevented, employees are injured and hence they will have to be away for

Sometime or lifetime to attend to their injuries from the factory accidents.The company will lose alot of time and money combined since time is money. To avoid this,make accident prevention the main agenda of the factory.

Not observing accident prevention plan can lead the company losing a lot of money.

Laws and rules of different countries and institutions have it that when an employee is injured,they are suppose to be refunded.This refund normally goes for a huge sum of money.

The company is destined to lose more if the individual affected goes to the authorities .

To avoid this the company should invest in safety precautions so that they do not lose more.

The other purpose is to win the employees confidence to that institution/factory.

When the factory doesn’t pose any threat to their lives ,the employees will have confidence in

Working in that factory. This will make them realize their full potential.

Having the best accident prevention plan also make the machines work efficiently without interruption.This means that the machine will be working continuously .This will make the operators realize the full potential of this equipments.

As a company,there is always the intention of doing and being the best among the competition .The intention of protecting the factory’s image .This will make the company be known of high and good reputation.

When your products are not associated with risky adventures,people will tend to have some positive views about your company.This is good in the competition and the sustainability of the company.

Environmental purposes.We all as human beings have the role keep our environment as clean as we found it.keeping it clean involves implementing in place all accidents prevention plans.

Lately,there has been the issue of global warming taking center stage.We in the industries have been blamed for emitting dangerous waste to the environment. If we

Keep all accident prevention plans ,we are in a position to reduce this.

Take a case of when plastic injection and molding are left un attended for long or left and operated when faulty,They will excessively heat up and produce gasses that are dangerous

To the environment.

As seen above we have a purpose and a good intention to our environment.

B. Company Presidents Statement
