Being in the 21st century, with technology and world so advanced, we still talk about this subject, “Are Women Safe, in India, especially?” With surveys and understandings of what is happening around us, it is time that the country joins hands together to realize that – ‘Women are NOT SAFE in any means in India’. There have many cases that have been reported and many unreported for the torture a woman undergoes, yet there has been nothing done to change the law or the system to the way a woman is being looked at.

Women have been advancing, progressing and have proved that they can beat men in any sector they are in. Be it sports, arts, science, politics, service or for that matter any where, she has stood at par with what a man could do. Yet, she still fights for equality.

No matter what, the old thoughts and upbringing culture still lay cluttered in the minds of men that women should not be above men, but below them. It is sad to understand that women are the better halves of the society, yet they are the ones who face the maximum tortures in many ways in their lives.

Time has changed, yet attitude towards women have never been changed. To understand better, one has to get to the root cause of the problem. It has all started ages ago, where men are thought to be gods and powerful and women to be just like slaves for household works.

Even today, leave alone villages where people are uneducated, the educated society or who claims to be in the high class society, opts for abortions of girl child! The only reason that they state is “It is expensive to bring up a girl child.” How ridiculous? The system has to be changed right from the roots.

When a girl child is born, the first thought is, the parent has to make dowry to get her married off. Aren’t men and their families ashamed to ask for dowries even today? Do they survive on the money from the girl’s…...

...has made major efforts to improve its safety program and, as a result, has seen a reduction in the number of injuries on the job. The amount of lost time, however, hasn’t decreased as much as expected. Upper management is looking for suggestions on other steps to take. Anna Perez, director of Human Resources, thinks one step that could help would be for the company to get involved in an off-the-job safety program. 1.) How should Anna describe this type of program to management? What is off-the-job safety? An off-the-job safety program is a logical extension of the occupational safety program and meets the same needs: reduction of costly employee absences due to incidents, injuries, or deaths; and commitment to employee well-being. 2.) What statistics can she provide to convince management that this subject merits attention? According to National Safety Council estimates, three out of four deaths and more than half of the injuries suffered by workers occur off the job. Annual production time lost due to off-the-job injuries averages 120 million days compared with 75 million days lost by workers injured in the workplace. 3.) What are three benefits a company can realize from expanding its safety program to include off-the-job safety? • reduction in lost production time and operating costs from both on-the job and off-the-job injuries • increased employee interest in the on-the-job safety program due to efforts in off-the-job safety • better public relations CASE......

...Safety Slogans Here are some safety slogans that will help you to make safety a way of life. [pic] Safety is a very important aspect of life, be it at home, out on the road, or at the workplace. Here is a collection of some great safety slogans that you can use on posters to stick up in your office or in your home, or use in presentations, or send as emails. Safety isn't just a slogan, it's a way of life. Better to be safe than to be sorry! Chance takers are accident makers. Be alert! Accidents hurt. A safer you is a safer me. Unprepared = Unsafe. Anyone driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac. The best car safety device is a rear-view mirror with a cop in it. Remember - Safety is not a job; it is a way of life. Safety is a cheap and effective insurance policy While on a ladder, never step back to admire your work Safety doesn't slow the job down but mishaps do. A spill, a slip, a hospital trip. Your safety is everyone's responsibility, especially yours. You can't get home, unless you're safe. Ignoring a warning can cause much mourning. The adage "look before you leap" is a lifesaver. The safe way is the right way When jogging, run against the traffic flow. Wear the right protective equipment for the job. Use the right tool for the job. Just because you always did it that way, doesn't make it right. Safety is something you learn from the start - Being accident......

... including tools and equipment which may be furnished by employees. All hazards involved in the use of power tools can be prevented by following five basic safety rules: • Keep all tools in good condition with regular maintenance. • Use the right tool for the job. • Examine each tool for damage before use. • Operate according to the manufacturer's instructions. • Provide and use the proper protective equipment. Note the following key points in this lesson: • Hazardous moving parts of a power tool need to be safeguarded. • All employers should caution employees that saw blades, knives, or other tools be directed away from aisle areas and other employees working in close proximity. • To protect the user from shock, tools must either have a three-wire cord with ground and be grounded, be double insulated or be powered by a lowvoltage isolation transformer. • Portable electric powered tools must meet the OSHA electrical requirements. • All jacks - lever and ratchet jacks, screw jacks and hydraulic jacks - must have a device that stops them from jacking up too high. Remember: Employees should be trained in the use of all tools - not just power tools. They should understand the potential hazards as well as the safety precautions to prevent those hazards from occurring. Appropriate personal  protective equipment, e.g.,  safety goggles, gloves, etc.,  should be worn due to hazards  that may be encountered while  using portable power tools and  hand tools.   ...

The Evolving Woman

...existence of the woman is suspended during marriage." This is according to a 1765 law established by Sir William Blackstone an English barrister, and American law followed this principle thereby the wife "belonged" to the husband. These were the times that women lived through and the conditions they lived with during the early part of the nineteenth century. As I move forward making mention of a woman named Mary Wollstonecraft who has been called a forward-thinking feminist. She was a woman that was years ahead of her time. Her writing, A Vindication of Rights of Men (1790) is one of the most important documents in the history of women's rights. Mary’s views were primarily concerned with the whole woman as an individual and about rights. Mary was a participant in and observer of an outstanding series of social revolutions. This may have been the major reason why she held such radical views. Mary's goal was to indicate the injustices in the treatment of women and attempt to correct them (Wollstonecraft). Centuries have passed since Mary's time and remarkable changes have been made in the world of woman's rights. 1998 marked the 150th Anniversary of a movement by women to achieve full civil rights in this country. Women have not been the passive beneficiaries of changes in laws and human nature; women needed to work aggressively to gain anything and all they could. A convention to discuss the social, civil, and the religious condition and rights of woman......

...asbestos from the bottom of the pond fall within the definition of “Class II asbestos work”. A serious violation, one involving a substantial probability of physical harm and death requires a mandatory penalty of up to $1,000. A willful violation runs a considerably greater risk of penalty. In my opinion the damages happened because of company violations against the safety rules and the OSHA recommendations. “A four-day hearing was held before a Commission administrative law judge (“ALJ”).   In his decision and order, the ALJ vacated four violations, affirmed four violations as other-than-serious, affirmed three violations as de minimis, and assessed penalties totaling $1,800.00. The decision of the ALJ became the final order of the Commission.   Exercising jurisdiction pursuant to 29 U.S.C. § 660(a), this court denies Tierdael's petition for review, concluding that the plain and natural meaning of the regulation encompasses Tierdael's activity.” So depending on what stated above, the Tierdoel Construction Co. should pay for the damages caused by the asbestos pipe system because of their negligence of the safety requirements....

...Health, safety and nutrition Amanda Gonzalez Kaplan University CE220 Child Safety, Nutrition and Health Professor Mary Ball March 7, 2015 Parents are often asked what is the most important thing they look for when seeking a high quality childcare center, a healthy and safe environment is always at the top of the list. Early childhood professionals promote physical, mental health, appropriate nutrition and provide an emotionally, physically safe environment for young children in partnership with their families. Sound health, safety, and nutritional practices provide the foundation for development and learning. Good nutrition is critical to overall development of young children. Meals and snacks encourage good nutrition and eating habits. A safe environment prevents and reduces injuries for young children who are only beginning to recognize dangerous situations (Academics). With all this in mind, childcare providers must include parents in their efforts to create healthy and safe environments and teach healthy habits to the children in their child care program. There are numerous ways to help promote age appropriate learning activities that reinforce the importance of health, nutrition and safety. Children learn the best when they are doing things they enjoy. One age appropriate activity for the age range of 3-5 could be coloring. This activity is a great way for children to express their creativity while learning.......

...industry, Safety is one of the most critical factor. Research Objectives Literature Review At a time when many companies are emphasizing on improving their business processes, operational efficiency and enhancing pro people focus, safety is one of the most important areas of improvement. It becomes even more critical in a labor intensive industries like manufacturing and construction. Most of the industries have adopted a well set standard operating procedures and efforts are on to get it better day by day. The focus of our study has been to identify the factors which affects the safety awareness, minimizes accidents at workplace and as a result meets operational efficiency of the organization. When the effect of these factors are positive, we may conclude that the organization is people oriented. Previous Studies: One of the earlier studies in this area was conducted by Cox & Cox in the year 1991 for European industrial gas sector. It had considered five factors affecting the safety parameters – effectiveness of arrangements for safety, individual responsibility, individual skepticism, safeness of work environment and personal immunity. This study was done not keeping in mind any specific industry and later on further studies revealed that model and frameworks for employee attitudes to safety may be dependent on the context and hence a generic study for overall industry may not be appropriate. Subsequent study by Cox, Sue & Tomas in the year 1997 on......

Sign up to Safety campaign reveals that a million people use the services of the National Health Services (NHS) every 36 hours, with the majority being given care that is both safe and of high quality (NHS England, 2014). However, sometimes mistakes occur and patients are harmed as a result. Sign up to safe campaign shows that between 2011 and 2012, a total of 326 ’never events’ were reported to strategic health authorities (Glasper, 2014).This number can be reduced by addressing different safety measures, such as building a safety culture, leading and supporting staff, promote reporting, learning and sharing safety lessons and implementing solution to prevent harm (Glasper, 2014). Building Safety Culture An important component of a successful strategy to address these kinds of safety problems is the encouragement of personnel to be more forthcoming in reporting and disclosing errors, actual harm, and fear of being bullied.

Woman Safety

...ARE WOMAN REALLY SAFE IN INDIA? The condition of women in India has always been a matter of grave concern. Since the past several centuries, the women of India were never given equal status and opportunities as compared to that of their male counterparts. The patriarchal nature of Indian society, which even though gives respect to women as they are our mothers and sisters, has greatly hampered both the independence as well as the safety of women. One of the main reasons of violence against women is the mentality which deems women inferior of men and merely limits their importance to the maintenance of the household, the upbringing of children and pleasing their husbands and serving other members of the family. Violence against women is present in every country, cutting across the boundaries of culture, class, education, income, ethnicity and age. Even though it is now forbidden in most parts of the world, the reality is that violations against women’s rights are often sanctioned under the garb of cultural practices and norms or through misinterpretation of religious tenets. Moreover, when the violation takes place within the home, as is very often the case, the abuse is effectively condoned by the tacit silence and the passivity displayed by the state and the law-enforcing machinery. In India even in the 21st century, women cannot step out of their house at any given time, assured of her physical and sexual safety. Everyday women in this society face more problems than......

...Brandon Hines Safety, Health, and Environment Developing Today’s Safety Aspects In the last century, the modern aspects in safety for Process Technicians have helped make a better work environment, for those who make the products we use in our everyday lives. Many unfortunate, tragic, but educational events helped point the industry in the right direction. Through these events the industry has grown and developed newer safer equipment, improved its employee’s safety/well-being, and created a safer, more aware community. On December 3, 1984, a toxic gas cloud escaped from a chemical plant in Bhopal, India. The cloud slowly made its way into the community killing over two thousand people and seriously harming many others. The gas cloud was composed of methyl isocyanate (MIC). MIC is a major component used in the production of Sevin and Temik, pesticides used to control insect infestations and crop production in India. This was the first time that a major chemical manufacturer has had a deadly leak near a populated area. This helped show that the community needed to be more aware of what was around them. The industry began investigations to discover what really took place that day in order to prevent such an event from occurring again. The Union Carbide plant produced a wide range of pesticides that were very critical to the economy of India. For the production of these products, a number of steps were required. The first step was the reaction of carbon monoxide with......
