Important Life Saving Rules To Follow At Work

- Advertisement -NEBOSH IGC

Following work safety rules is not a choice. It’s a responsibility. Employers have the moral responsibility to do everything in their power to avoid people from being injured, while employees have the responsibility to follow those rules, not only for their own safety, but also for the safety of others.

Workplaces should make employees aware of potential threats, which can be done using strategically placed safety signs.

Well-designed safety labels and signs help protect people from harm, help protect companies from liability in the event of an unfortunate incident, and reflect a company’s compliance with safety codes and regulations.

Our Life Saving Rules exist, above all else, to keep our employees safe. We follow these rules to enable our employees to identify the critical controls that must be in place before undertaking and during work.

Some Of The Life Saving Rules Are As Follows:

Fitness For Work

I will always present myself ‘Fit for Work’ and will never drive a vehicle or operate plant or equipment under the influence of fatigue, alcohol, illicit or prescription drugs that may affect my ability to work safely.


I will never drive a vehicle when fatigued and I will not exceed speed limits or use my mobile phone (unless hands free) and I will always wear my seat belt.

Isolation & Lockout

I will always verify isolation and lock out mobile plant & plant before work begins and I will never remove, bypass or modify a safety protection device (e.g. guard, interlock or barricade) without authorization.

Line Of Fire

I will always position myself in a safe zone and never walk or work under a suspended load or knowingly work “in the line of fire” of moving equipment or parts (e.g. mobile plant, vehicles or attachments) and energized equipment (e.g. rotating ,electrical or pressurized machinery).

Mobile Plant & Tooling

I will never operate mobile plant or restricted tooling unless trained, competent and authorized to do so.
