They are three workers installing a sign of shop. The workers ages between fourteen and seventeen. They were using a truck mounted extensible metal ladder to post the sign. Two workers were holding the sign on the ladder and the other worker operating the extensible ladder. The metal extensible ladder touched a 13,200 voltage power line. The two workers stand in the extensible ladder and connect on the ground, which is made a good connection. The third worker tried to turn off the breaker contact in the power line, but it’s burned by the high voltage. Then, the third worker tried to drive the truck away to break contact. When he was standing on the ground allowed the electrical circle contact.
The enforcement approach the hazard avoidance could have rules with penalties for breaking them. First of all, the three workers are young to do this work. They couldn’t have enough experience to deal with this kind of hazard. Also, the company must give him ladder and shoes to prevent the electrical circuit contact. The workers must turn off the power line before start working. This company breaks many rules of safety. The safety rules with penalties of breaking them. The company should have the equipment to prevent the hazard from the workers and workplace.
The psychological approach of hazard avoidance should have a posters and signs reminding employees to work safety. For example if there is a sigh to show the worker that is a high voltage line or it has different color than the other lines. In this accident the workers must turn off the electrical circuit before start working. The new workers and now young workers are particularly in florally influenced by the psychological approach to safety and health. The new young workers should work with worker, which have experience in safety and health.
The engineering approach has the rules of hazard avoidance in workplace. In this accident, the company doesn’t have the right equipment to avoid the hazard from workers...
