  人們每天前往工作都是帶著能夠平安到家的期待,為了能夠達成這個需求,企業設置了各種的技術以及設備來幫助保障員工的安全以及健康,好比說提供培訓或是規定使用個人防護器具。
  Every day, people go to work with the expectation that they will get home safely at the end of the day. To meet these expectations, businesses deploy various techniques and equipment to help keep their employees safe and healthy ,such as providing training or mandating the use of personal protective equipment.
  這些許許多多的方法都提高了安全性,但其中部份被廣泛使用的卻也實質的提高了員工傷害或死亡的風險。
  While many of these methods have improved safety, there are others in use almost universally that actually heighten employees' risk of injury or death.

用手機來監控您員工的安全
Using a Phone to Check In or Monitor the Safety of Your Employees

  事情發生的前提是,如果你的員工有獨立作業的時候,你盡可能的確保他們任何時候都攜帶著智慧型手機,而關鍵是發生緊急狀況的時候,使用者必須要能看著手機並且撥打出一組號碼。
  Chances are, if you have employees working alone or in isolation, you've made every effort to ensure that they carry a phone or smartphone at all times. While communication is the key to discovering an emergency, phones require the user to be able to see the device and dial a number. 
  如果那些工人已經受傷了,盲了、無行為能力的狀況下,更不可能再使用他們的電話請求協助。另外,手機並沒有提供太多的幫助,當你的員工不能夠親自請求幫助。
  Workers who are severely injured, blinded, or incapacitated may not be capable of reaching for their phone and requesting aid manually. Additionally, phones do not offer much help when an employee is not able to manually request help.

緊急處理每一次的簽到
Responding to an Emergency As Soon As a Check-in is Missed

  有些雇主會要求他們的員工每一至兩小時都進行簽到一次,如果那個員工錯過了那次的簽到,管理者便會試圖聯繫失蹤的員工,如果無法取得聯繫,就會開始與搜索與緊急救援人員接觸。
  Many businesses require their employees to check in every one or two hours. If a worker misses a check-in, managers attempt to contact the missing employee and, failing that, a search is mounted and emergency responders are contacted. 
  這種模式的問題點在於,受傷的工人可能會攤坐於在地板上,沒有意識,或正面臨了心臟病發作或是中風,在有人發現事情不對勁通常都是一至兩小時之後的事情了。這流失的每分每秒都是珍貴的並且他的意義在於死亡以及存活之間。
  The problem with this model is that an injured or distressed worker might be slumped on the ground in a field, unconscious, suffering from a heart attack or stroke, for as much as an hour or two before anyone even realizes that something is wrong. Those precious minutes (or hours) that are lost can mean the difference between life and death. 
  除了無效之外,這些簽到的工作成為了組織的生產力流失的主因,當這些員工每天花費越來越多時間來進行這些日常的簽到動作而不是工作的時候。
  Beyond being ineffective, these check-in solutions become a productivity drain on organizations as workers spend increasing amounts of time performing their routine check-ins rather than working.

完全的依賴個人防護器具
Relying Entirely on PPE

  沒有人會對於防護器具的價值產生懷疑,但是過度的依賴裝備,而不是專注於可能(而且很可能會)發生的傷害將會是一個致命的疏忽。
  No one is arguing the value of PPE, but relying too much on gear to prevent injuries without paying attention to the possibility that injuries can (and probably will) continue to occur can be a lethal oversight.

  工人可能會心臟病發作、中風、氣體中毒,甚至是遭受到任何的其他意外事件,個人防護裝備可能不足以確保他們每天都能夠能夠平平安安的回到家。
  Workers can suffer heart attacks, strokes, be overcome by gases, or suffer any number of other incidents in which PPE may not be enough to ensure they get home safely at the end of the day.

  當一個安全事故發生的時候,整體的安全投資,包含個人防護器具,並沒有改變這個狀況,下一個即將發生的將會掌控著員工生活的平衡。
  When a safety incident occurs, the overall safety investment, including PPE, has failed to avert the situation. What occurs next may hold the employee's life in the balance.

採用夥伴系統來保障你員工的安全
Employing a 'Buddy System' to Keep Your Employees Safe

  如果有人要你用最低限度來維持員工的安全並支付員工雙倍的薪資你會這沒做嗎 ?或許不會,然而,很多時候,企業會使用夥伴系統,他們正是這樣做的。
  If someone asked you to double the salaries of your employees with minimal expectations of improved productivity or safety, would you do it? Probably not—yet, very often when businesses deploy buddy systems for safety, they are doing just that. 
  維持一個夥伴系統意味著你的企業需要雇用兩個人來做一個人做的工作,這個點子背後的用意是當有其中一個員工發生事故的時候,另外一個就可以請求支援。不過如果當兩個都遭受到同樣的事件或是呈現無行為能力會發生什麼事呢 ?
  Maintaining a buddy system means your business needs to pay two people often to do the work of one. The idea behind this type of system is that should something happen to one employee, the other one can call and request help… but what happens if both employees suffer the same incident or are rendered incapacitated?
  大型的事件,例如煤氣洩漏、爆炸,以及車輛碰撞等,並不會是單一個體受到傷害。更糟糕的是,夥伴系統將會讓現場的工作人員因為得到更高安全性的錯覺而感到自滿。
  Larger events such as gas leaks, explosions, and vehicle collisions do not discriminate based on the size of the team. To make matters worse, buddy systems can increase complacency of workers in the field due to a false sense of greater safety.

執行設備掃描來尋找受傷的員工
Performing a Facility Sweep to Find Injured Employees

  當警報器響,所有的作業都將會停止,大家都會盡可能的去協助尋找受傷或受困的員工。
  When the alarm goes up inside a facility, operations stop and every available hand is often pulled from the floor to help find the injured or distressed employee. 
  除了在業務中斷,企業花了珍貴的時間在搜索受傷的雇員,因為搜索隊必須花時間來查看每一個可能出現的區域,每一分每一秒都將會因為搜索而流失,而這流失的每分鐘都在增加員工的健康更壞的風險。
  Aside from the interruption in operations, the business spends precious time searching for the injured worker. Because searchers must spend time looking in every possible area, minutes and even hours can be lost while searching. Every minute that passes while the searchers wander about increases the risk of a worse outcome for the employee's health.

一個取代他們最好的方法
One Best Practice to Replace Them All

  最新的科技進展給我們的方法去避免,那就是透過自動化來降低使用這些技術的風險,即時警報,並內置故障保險,盡可能的減輕更多的風險。
  Recent advances in technology have given us the key to avoiding the use of these risky techniques through automation, instant alerting, and built-in fail-safes to mitigate as much risk as possible.
  這個演變在安全領域已經被合併為員工安全監測,通常被稱為獨立作業工人安全監測。利用自動化安全監測裝置,管理者終於可以發現突發事件了。
  This evolution in safety has emerged as "employee safety monitoring," often known as "lone worker safety monitoring." Utilizing automated safety monitoring devices, managers can finally discover emergency incidents right away.

  不像是手機,員工安全監控設備是專為一個目的所設計的:監測您員工的安全性,這些設備簡話了警報的過程,無需拔出電話或是做任何撥打的動作,並且在員工呈現昏迷、滑倒、絆倒或是跌倒事件的時候觸發即時警報。
  Unlike phones, employee safety monitoring devices are designed for one purpose: to monitor and report on the safety of your employees. These devices simplify the alerting process by eliminating the need to pull out a phone and dial a phone number, instead triggering an immediate alert in the event that a worker is rendered unconscious or suffers a slip, trip, or fall. 
  不像是手機的簽到程序,這些設備還會在簽到與簽到之間監測員工的安全性問題。如果一個員工遭受到意外,他不需要在等到下一次簽到時間的到來才能得到救援。
  Unlike a phone-based check-in, these devices also will monitor worker safety in between check-ins. If a worker suffers an incident, he or she won’t need to wait for the check-in timer to count down before help is sent out.
  此外,有些員工的安全監控產品還包含了室內定位技術,讓雇主們利用精準的定位精度來找到廠內受傷的工人,這消除了搜索整個廠區所浪費的時間,他不只是能夠使員工受傷的結果有隱性的改善,而且還可以降低所造成的設備掃描的停機時間。
  In addition, some employee safety monitoring products include indoor location technology, allowing employers to find injured workers located within a facility with pinpoint precision. This eliminates wasted time spent search the entire facility; it can not only improve the potential outcomes for injured employees, but also reduce operational downtimes caused by extensive facility sweeps.

  安全管理員可以透過購入這種自動化的警報系統來使他們的個人防護裝備的投資更加完善,系統將會在有任何緊急事件發生的時候發出通知。
  Safety managers can complement their investments in PPE by putting in place these automated alerting systems that notify them when an emergency does occur. 
  接收並且立即的回應警報可以有機會顯著的使結果得到改善,在事件當中,單一的個人防護器具是不足以防止受傷的。
  Receiving and responding to an emergency alert immediately can significantly improve the chances of a better outcome in the event that a piece of PPE is not enough to prevent an injury.
