Safety and Working Night Shift

Shift work is a necessary part of today’s work environment. This is despite the fact that working night shift does not promote good health and increase risk exposure when workers cannot concentrate on their jobs because they are tired, drowsy or trying to fight their internal clocks. Popular industrial disasters that caused millions of damage and cost the lives of hundreds of people happened in the second and third shifts. The Three Mile Island leak happened at 4:00 a.m., the Bhopal gas explosion at 12:45 a.m., the Chernobyl explosion at 1:00 a.m.

All Accidents are Preventable

What most people think?

Are all accidents preventable?

I have asked a lot of people this question and most of them said “NO”. Here are some of their answers:

“No, not all accidents are preventable.”

“No, that is impossible we are not leaving in a perfect world. People commit mistakes.”

“No, you can’t prevent the stupidity of other people.”

“No, you can’t prevent natural calamities.”
