EDS'S HEALTH AND SAFETY

V. Ryan 2003-2017

 

A. Click here for 'Health and Safety for the Consumer'.

B. Health and Safety in a workshop is very important. If a pupil/student uses equipment, tools and machinery, he/she should have received safety training. This should ensure that he/she feels confident in the use of machines and can operate them without having an accident or causing an accident to other people. Below are a number of exercises that introduce pupils/students to an understanding of working in a safe environment.

Below is 'Ed the Handyman', a cartoon character who knows very little about Health and Safety. He is a bad image for health and safety in a workshop.
Ed says that Health and Safety is important but ignores it himself. He uses a variety of machines and equipment and thinks he will never have an accident or cause an accident to other people.

BUT HE IS WRONG !!!!

Look at the animations of Ed working and you should find it easy to see why his approach to health and safety is completely wrong.
Do not be like Ed. Take health and safety seriously so that you will be safe, work more efficiently and improve the quality of the items you manufacture. 

Ed the HANDYMAN is a fictitious character and does not reflect the way health and safety should be approached.
