Open Doors - Safe Youth
Awareness of the importance of H&S to the young worker
CME Ontario will bring together the young worker and manufacturing community to showcase the importance of health and safety in the workplace. Plant visits bring the young worker and teachers face to face with the health and safety aspects with in the manufacturing business environment.
Awareness for the young worker is paramount in instilling early health and safety practices among young workers. Awareness for educational entities will compliment what they are already teaching in the classroom around health and safety.
“Competency is the safely demonstrated completion of a task to a predefined standard on a repeatable basis.”
Introduce the student to a generic definition of competency and how it impacts their work life. Establish an understanding of what proper training entails; I show you, we do it together, you perform under observation. The repeatable basis is the introduction to a culture of working safely and not taking short cuts.
Right to Question
Once the student has an understanding of competency, then we can build the confidence to question when asked to perform a new task or function. The student should feel no reluctance in asking; is it safe, can you demonstrate, or stating that they are not comfortable with the new task.
Fit For Duty
Students will be introduced to the seven contributors to Fit for Duty and the warning signs that they or a co-worker may not be fit to safely perform.
