INTRODUCTION

Health, Safety & Environment (HSE) is an area concerned with the safety, health and welfare of
people engaged in work or employment. The goals of occupational safety and health programs
include to foster a safe and healthy work environment. HSE may also protect co-workers, family
members, employers, customers, and many others who might be affected by the workplace
environment.
Occupational safety and health can be important for moral, legal, and financial reasons. In
common-law jurisdictions, employers have a common law duty, reflecting a moral obligation, to
take reasonable care for the safety of their employees, Statute law may build upon this to impose
additional general duties, introduce specific duties and create government bodies with powers to
regulate workplace safety issues: details of this will vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Good
OSH practices can also reduce employee injury and illness related costs, including medical care,
sick leave and disability benefit costs.

RESPONSIBILITIES
Health and safety is the joint responsibility of management and workers. Management is
accountable for non-compliance to health and safety legislation. All health and safety activities
are based on specific individual responsibilities, most of which can be found in the pertinent
legislation. However, often these duties are not well known. This situation can be improved by
including details of specific individual responsibilities in the safety program.
Responsibility may be defined as an individual's obligation to carry out assigned duties.
Authority implies the right to make decisions and the power to direct others. Responsibility and
authority can be delegated to subordinates, giving them the right to act for superiors. It is
important to note that, while some responsibilities can be delegated, the superior remains
accountable for seeing that they are carried out.
Individual responsibilities apply to every employee in the workplace, including the Chief
Executive Officer. When a safety coordinator has been appointed, it is best to spell out his/her
responsibilities as well. All employees will then know exactly what is expected of each
individual in health and safety terms.

To fulfill their individual responsibilities, the people must:

know what these responsibilities are (communication required)

have sufficient authority to carry them out (organizational issue)

have the required ability and competence (training or certification required)

Once all these criteria have been met, safety performance can be assessed by each individual's
supervisor on an equal basis with other key job elements. Health and safety is not just an extra
part of an employee's job: it is an integral, full-time component of each individual's
responsibilities.

INCIDENT SUMMARY
A fire accident occurred at 1st Floor of SNGTI. A staff boy saw the spot where fire took place and
immediately rushed to the training officer to inform him about it. The training officer got the
preliminary information and
The fire was attributed to a short-circuit in the Fan Coil Unit (FCU) of a split air-conditioning
unit located within a kiosk in the front end of the building. The FCU was mounted on to the
partition wall made of commercial marine plywood. The fire from the FCU spread onto the
wooden partitions that accelerated the burning and helped in spreading the fire further.
