Health Safety & Environment Policy
MIMA & Brothers as an Electrical & HVAC Contractor is used to implement their HSE policy in each and every work / job.
The main jobs involved of a project are, supply and installation of Light Fixtures, Various types of Systems i.e. Fire Alarm, CCTV, MATV, Sound System, Access Control System, Fire Suppression System, Automatic Sliding Door, Rat Repellant, Water Detection, Wiring & Wiring Accessories, Main/Sub main Cables etc. as well as to implement HSE Requirements.
The objective of this HSE case for Electrical & HVAC projects is to be given an overview of possible hazards associated with the Electrical & HVAC works, their identification, assessment and the control measures that shall be undertaken during the project. It also demonstrates that if controls are lost, recovery can be effective and medical facilities are available as soon as possible.
The document is considered as a living document and MIMA & Brothers would try their best for the maintenance of this HSE MS. A review and update of this document will be carried out for every new project and when ever new hazards are identified, the control measures will be incorporated in the document.

2.5 Communication and work force involvement
The success of the safety structure depends above all on the active and willingness to participate of all personal and commitment of its management.
Knowledge of HSE regulations and safe working practices often depends on repeating instructions.
MIMA would like personnel to:
• Beware of the importance of HSE and to implement HSE doctrine.
• Communicate and discuss freely, both among themselves and with the management about HSE matters.
• Be aware of the HSE performance of the crew.
• Be aware that both Concerned Project and MIMA management are actively encouraging progress on HSE matters.
• Report all indicates including unsafe acts, situation and near misses promptly for the purpose of learning from these incidents, rectifying the unsafe situations and to prevent re occurrence.
To promote that message, effective communication between the work force and the management is of prime interest. Achieving this is performed through routine day to day contacts or discussions and a structured system of HSE meetings which is defined below:
FREQUENCY DESIGNATION ATTENDEES
Daily Toolbox meeting Each field crew/all personnel
Weekly Weekly safety meeting Supervisors, Foreman with HSE officer.
Fortnightly Managers Safety Operation meeting Site Construction Manager, Site Project Manager, Supervisor & HSE Officer.
Fortnightly Managers Safety Progress meeting Concerned Project Operations Manager, Concerned Project HSE Manager Site Construction Manager Site Project Manager
Monthly Management Meeting GM Concerned Project, MIMA Operations Manager, Concerned Project HSE Manager.
Toolbox meetings: Daily – Each field crew/all personnel
To discuss the work for upcoming day with associated HSE implications, if any, stress the importance of safety, encourage incident reporting and gather feedback from personnel.
Weekly safety meeting:
Weekly – supervisor, Foremen with HSE Officer and safety crew to communicate safety procedures from the safety department and discuss unsafe acts, incidents and near misses and mitigation measures.
Site construction Manager, Site Project Manager, supervisor and HSE Officer – Supervisor to attempt to resolve issues raised at toolbox and weekly meeting, discuss unsafe acts, incidents and near misses and mitigation measures.
Fortnightly Progress Meetings:
Fortnightly – Concerned Project Operations Manager, Concerned Project HSE Manager, Site Construction Manager, Site Project Manager. This meeting can be either held in the field or by means of a conference call. This will be to discuss methods for improvement and means for putting these methods into effect with Concerned Project top management.
Monthly Management Meeting:
Monthly – GM Concerned Project, MIMA Operations Manager, Concerned Project HSE Manager. This will be review the progress of the field crew and to discuss methods of improvement and allocation of resources.

Maintaining the attention of the junior staff during HSE meetings can be hard to achieve at times and close supervision is required in this area. Dividing the work force in small groups in one way of getting their participation. Involving the local foremen in the preparation of the meetings can also improve communications.
All incidents are reported to the site Construction Manager and Concerned Project Karachi office on the daily report. The crew medic and the HSE officer are responsible for classifying the cases as per the Concerned Project HSE MS.

The injuries caused by the incorrect use of hand tools are usually not very serious but even so, considerable pain can be experiences by the injured person if only for a short while. The main causes of these injuries are the use of unsuitable tools, poor maintenance or incorrect storage.
The following general principals should be followed:
• Use the correct tool for the job; for example never use a spanner as a hammer.
• Not use damaged or worn tools.
• Hammers with loose heads files with loose spilt handles, chisels with “mushrooms” heads, or wrenches with splayed jaws.
• Never use a file with a handle, as hand-file tangs are dangerous.
• Use spanners that fit the nut or bolt head properly.
• Keep your hands behind the cutting edge when using cutting tools.
• If your use knives or scissors in your work, keep them in a safe place. It is not safe to put unsheathed knives or scissors in your pocket.
• Use reduce sparking tools as instructed when there is a risk from inflammable or explosives materials.
• Keep your tools clean and in good conditions. Project the edges of sharp tools, both when carried and in store.
• Wear eye protection when chipping, scaling dressing stone or concrete, fitting and cutting rivets or wherever there is a danger of flying particles.
• In buildings with open type flooring, place tools and small items in a box or on a sack to prevent them failing on to the floor below.
• Do not use your hands to slow down or stop a machine or shift a driving belt in motion.
• Do not clean oil or adjust machinery in motion. Authorized machinery attendants, properly clothed as required by law may only do this.
• Protect your eyes when operating machines such as those having abrasive wheels or when turning cast iron or non – ferrous metals. Particles of the abrasive or of the work may cause painful if not permanent injuries if goggles and / or screens are not used.
• Pay attention to the job you are performing on the machine – do not be disturbed by or distract others.
Appendix – 13
• Before using a portable electric tool, make sure the tool is in good order look for signs of overheating, loss of speed and irregular running noises. Also inspect the cable for signs of damaged insulation and connections. If in doubt as to the safety of the tool report to your supervisor.
• Use the right tool for the job.
• Electric cables must be kept away from water, oil, heat and sharp edges. If left in gangways, cables may be cut or coarse someone to trip wherever possibility they must be carried overhead.
• Ensure you have the correct length of electric cable or compressed air hose serving the apparatus; if it is too short get a proper extension.
• Do not lift or drug power tools by their cables.
• Check for tightness all joints in air hose to compressed air tools.
• Take care not to drop portable grinding machines as damaged may occur to the wheel resulting in breakage when it is brought up to speed. If the machine is dropped accidentally always check with your supervisor whether it is safe to use.
• Never force a portable grinder against the work, as dangerous flat spots on the wheel may develop.
• Your work with portable or transportable Electrical & HVAC equipment may require a permit to work. Always check with your supervisor.
• Wear eye protection when using the tool if there is a danger of flying particles.
