Reporting of injuries, diseases and dangerous occurrences regulations (RIDDOR) 1995 These regulations require employers to notify the Health and Safety Executive, or other relevant authorities, of a range of occupational injuries, diseases and dangerous events. Control of substance hazardous to health regulation (COSHH) 2002 These regulations require employers to assess the risks from hazardous substances and take appropriate precautions to ensure that hazardous substances are correctly stored and used. Health and safety policies and procedures A health and social care organizations policies and procedures should always incorporate the key points of health and safety law. This means that a care practitioner will be able to put health and safety laws into practice simply by following their employer’s policies
What I want to do as a career is to become a Heavy Duty Diesel Technician. A heavy duty diesel technician maintains and repairs diesel engines from simple oil changes to engine overhauls. In either case technicians must be equipped to work with variety of tools and diagnostic equipment. Why do I want it to be my career for three reasons, one I would have the advantage of working alongside experienced mechanics. Second I would be able to demonstrate my skills as a diesel technician.

EC Manual Handling The employer is responsible for the following area within the work place : 1.Avoidance of Manual Handling 2.Assessment of risks 3.Reduction of risks 4.Provision of information on the load 5.Review of Risk assessments. ￼ It’s very important to follow regulations pertaining to the heath and safety legislation, not just for your own safety, but for the safety of your service users - these laws are here to protect. When you’re moving a service user it’s important that you’ve had the correct training and to follow the right procedures. Each service user has their own care plan, within this contains a risk assessment, this will have been carried out by a trained assessor, it will explain how to move the service user safely, it will have identified any risks and how to reduce the risks. If you didn’t follow it, you could harm yourself and the service user.
Section 1: Determine the legal framework for WHS in the workplace Assessment Activity 1 Q 1) From what sources might you access current health and safety legislation, codes, standards, policies and procedures? A) In order to properly support health and safety procedures in your workplace it will be necessary to locate and share information. You need to know where to source information internal, external, formal and informal. Formal Informal Internal • Company reports • Business documents • Accident reports • Environmental monitoring • Workplace hazard assessments • Training workshops • Meetings, surveys and audits • Workplace conversations • Meetings • Observation in the workplace External • The Workplace Legislation
The definitions • Legislation is a law or group of laws • Policies is a document explaining the expected standards • Procedures are instructions about how to carry out a particular task Policies legislation and procedures are put in place in order to protect not only the service users but also the staff and employers there are many ways that they do ensure the wellbeing and safety of the staff and people who use the services. They all provide a strict set of rules in which everyone should follow at all times, in order to make sure that one persons mistake does not influence or effect someone else or the service user . If it found that someone isn’t adhering to the rules and regulations set there should be a set discipline in place. Health and safety at work act ~ (hasaw) This is a legislation put into place to safeguard all individuals in the health care setting. This act is enforced by the Health and Safety executive.
A large number of federal mandates exists, however, the mandates most well-known and common to most organizations are set forth by OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) for safety in the workplace, and by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency). OSHA was enacted to ensure that employers provide their employees with work practices and environments that will not adversely affect the employee’s health or cause death (Kavaler & Spiegel, 2003). For example, in construction, this might mean safe scaffolding and safety harnesses, while in healthcare this would include protection from medical waste, infection and blood-born pathogens by providing workers with masks, gloves, and appropriate/specialized waste containers. OSHA non-compliance fine can range from $5,000 to $250,000 and can include imprisonment. The EPA monitors the

Additionally, he also suggested that they outsource engines from an outside supplier to relieve the capacity problem. The objective is to determine what Merton should decide and upon what should the decision be based on in addition to the constraints that may arise. This case analyses the best product mix for Merton Truck Company in order to improve the company’s financial position by using linear programming models. 2. Key Issues/ Challenges Identified The company manufactured two specialized models of trucks Model 101 and Model 102.
Merton Truck company MSM Assignment SUBMITTED BY:- GOLDY GOEL 2014097 SECTION- B Merton Truck company Let us consider X1 = Units of model 101 X2 = Units of model 102 Therefore from the Table A we know the machine hours: Requirements and availability We can find the constraints according to number of hours available and the machine hours required per truck We get, Engine assembly constraint X1 + 2 × X2 ≤4000 Metal Stamping constraint 2 × X1 + 2 × X2 ≤ 6000 Model 101 Assembly constraint 2 × X1 ≤ 5000 Model 102 Assembly constraint 3 × X2 ≤ 4500 Where X1, X2 ≥ 0 Here we need to maximise the contribution, so calculating contribution for each truck Contribution for model 101 = Selling price – (Direct Material + Direct labour + Variable overheads) = 39000 – (24000+4000+8000) = 3000 Contribution for model 102 = Selling price – (Direct Material + Direct labour + Variable overheads) = 38000- (20000+4500+8500) = 5000 Therefore algebraic formulation is, Maximize Z = 3000 × X1 + 5000 × X2 Problem 1 (a): Find the best product mix for Merton. Solution: Solution is solved by graphical method: Problem 1 (a) So the best product mix for Merton would be Model 101 – 2000 Trucks Model 102 – 1000 Trucks Therefore Z = 3000 × 2000 + 5000 × 1000 = 11000000 Problem 1 (b): What would be the best product mix if engine assembly capacity were raised by one unit, from 4000 to 4001 machine hours? What is extra unit capacity worth? Solution: Engine assembly constraint X1 + 2 × X2 ≤ 4001 Metal Stamping constraint 2 × X1 + 2 × X2 ≤ 6000 Model 101 Assembly constraint 2 × X1 ≤ 5000 Model 102 Assembly constraint 3 × X2 ≤ 4500 Where X1, X2 ≥ 0 So the best product mix for Merton would be Model 101 –
