Video 1: Protection and Safety before, during and after
There is a great deal of conceptual confusion regarding the term “culture”. No unanimously accepted definition has been provided, there is no consensus on its indicators and little work has been undertaken to analyze the relationship between safety culture and organizational results.
Thus we can say that preventive culture is: the set of positive attitudes and beliefs, shared by all members of a company about health, risks, accidents, diseases and preventive measures. We can also define it as the proactive attitude of all members of families, schools, companies and communities to undertake preventive actions, regardless of whether or not there is an imminent disaster. Culture of prevention: that of commitment to safety, health promotion and total loss control.
Biosafety and protective equipment for the prevention of occupational hazards.
RD 773/1997 establishes, within the framework of Law 31/1995 on Occupational Risk Prevention, the minimum health and safety provisions for the selection, use and maintenance of personal protective equipment by workers at work.
Individual protection is the technique that aims to protect the worker against external aggressions, whether physical, chemical or biological, which may occur in the development of work activity.
Its mission is not to eliminate the risk of an accident, but to reduce or eliminate the personal consequences or injuries that it may cause to the worker, constituting one of the most cost-effective operational safety techniques if we take into account its generally low cost compared to the degree of protection provided by its correct use.
Personal protective equipment (PPE) is any equipment intended to be worn by the worker to protect him from one or more risks that may threaten his safety or health, as well as any complement or accessory intended for this purpose.
Occupational Risk Prevention and Covid Protection
Prevention in civil protection consists of a set of measures and actions aimed at avoiding or reducing the possible risks that may occur at any given time on people or property.
Planning consists of identifying these risks and drawing up Civil Protection Plans that allow the mobilization of the human and material resources necessary for the protection of people and property in the event of an emergency, as well as the coordination of the territorial administrations involved in the emergency.
The Basic Civil Protection Regulations, approved by Royal Decree 407/1992, of April 24, establishes the guidelines for drawing up the plans as well as the minimum content that must be included for proper coordination between the different administrations.
For the drafting of territorial plans by the municipalities, a “Guide” has been prepared which, together with the “Template”, aims to facilitate their preparation and achieve greater homogeneity between the documents developed by the different localities.
From Prevention to Protection of Workers
We will actively engage with UN agencies, regional bodies and individual member states to demonstrate that the protection and promotion of human rights contribute to more effective conflict prevention, conflict management and post-conflict peace. To this end, we will monitor the implementation of relevant strategies, provide advice on what is needed to ensure the effective protection of human rights, and offer training, operational guidance and technical advice on how to integrate human rights in a functional way into prevention and peacebuilding activities.
Justice mechanisms, including transitional justice, provide greater accountability for conflict-related violations. We intend to document, map and report on human rights violations and abuses, as well as breaches of international humanitarian law in the context of conflict, including through assistance to investigative mechanisms established by UN intergovernmental bodies; support judicial mechanisms that seek to enhance accountability for conflict-related violations in various jurisdictions, including universal jurisdiction; and continue to support comprehensive transitional justice processes and the right of victims to effective reparations. We will produce tools and guidance on victim and witness protection and participation, and improve the effectiveness of our support to justice institutions. We aim to help prevent new cycles of violence and conflict by promoting justice and reparations for past violations.
