Back injuries and blood/body fluid
In this SLP, you will be a health and safety manager in an oil and gas manufacturing facility with multiple occupational hazards.
In the facility, there have been many worker’s compensation claims for back injuries and chronic back pain. Also, there has recently been a concern for exposure to biological hazards when accidents occur and there is potential for exposure to blood or body fluid.
- Identify ergonomic hazards to which workers may be exposed, particularly the ones leading to back injury, and design a plan to address this concern and prevent future injuries.
- Design a plan to prevent exposure to biological hazards in your workforce.
