Task Rundown: Protection……


List the acceptable and applicable means to protect employees in priority order: engineering controls, administrative practices, and personal protective equipment.  Describe all limitations that can potentially diminish protection.

The Task Rundown is a tool that is used to gather and assemble knowledge in one place about a specific task.  It is helpful for supervisors and those responsible for developing Safe 6 Briefs and training.  The Rundown is made up of 6 elements:

  • Information – Who, What, When, Where, Why, How
  • Cause – What leads to mishaps
  • Effects – What can happen as a result of a mishap
  • Rules – Guidance that must be followed
  • Training – What training is required for employees
  • Protection – Describe the needed control measures and PPE

The Safely Working Project is focused wholly on employees and their health and well-being in the workplace.  The Project promotes useful guidance that does not depend on a safety professional or staff to facilitate in the workplace.

The Safely Working Project envisions a path to workplace safety that is driven by employees and supervisors.  This is fundamentally different from the traditional Safety Program where an EHS Professional manages workplace safety.  So, instead of top down safety, Safely Working endeavors to succeed from the ground up. “We’re turning safety upside down.”
