TIPS ON MALARIA:
Malaria is an infection that can cause serious illness and can be life threatening. You get malaria from the bite of an infected female anopheles mosquito. The anopheles mosquitoes that carry malaria usually bite at dusk and during the night. Mosquitoes carry a parasite called Plasmodium, which infects your red blood cells.

If you’re bitten by a mosquito carrying malaria, it usually takes between seven and 18 days to develop symptoms. However, for some people the symptoms may not develop for up to a year. You may have the following: fever, sweating and chills, muscle pain and tenderness, headache, diarrhea, cough , and general discomfort.

Malaria can develop very quickly and needs immediate treatment. If malaria isn’t treated, you may have more serious health problems, for example fits, loss of consciousness, kidney failure and blood clotting problems. If you have any of these symptoms, or feel unwell at all, it’s important to get medical help straightaway.

There are four important types of malaria including Plasmodium falciparum, Plasmodium vivax, Plasmodium ovale and Plasmodium malariae. Of these, Plasmodium falciparum causes the most infections and is the most severe form.

Preventive Measures

Prevntive measures...

  1. Prevention requires A,B, C and D
  2. Awareness of risk.
  3. Bite avoidance/Use mosquito treated nets.
  4. Chemoprophylaxis (taking preventive medicines if you are travelling to or living in a malaria region).
  5. Diagnosis made promptly with early treatment of an infected case.
  6. An E can be considered for remote adventure trips. The E stands for 'Emergency treatment with safe drugs', such as Artemesin combined with Lumefantrine.

Our Quality Objectives set at the corporate level, as well as, departmental levels are compatible with this quality policy and are reviewed as at when due.

General Safety In Lifting Operations

This write up is focused on general crane lifting operations & will therefore, present some measures to be taken to ensure safer lifting in the company. The following sub-headings will help us to understand what needs to be done;

  1. PERMIT TO WORK:- Ensure relevant permit has been issued for the operation.
  2. COMPETENCE OF PERSONNEL:- Anyone involved with the operations must be certified competent to perform such operation.
  3. LIFTING GEAR:- Regular testing, inspection and certification of lifting gear and equipment is necessary. Slings, shackles, pad eyes, should each have their certificates. Periodic colour coding to indicate that a gear is in service is important. Conventionally, colour coding are effected on six months basis. Normally, a third party is involved in the inspection & certification.
  4. SAFE WORKING LOAD:- Ensure that no equipment or gear is loaded beyond the Safe Working Load. This must be inscribed or conspicuously written on the gear or equipment after every testing & certification.
  5. TRIAL LIFTING:- This allows the operator to check his estimations of balance, stability and general security of the load whilst it is in a relatively safe position. It is advised that the load be lifted a nominal distance first. Until the operator is satisfied, lifting should not continue.
  6. LIFT PLAN:- Plan the routes the load will have to travel and remove any obstacles or obstruction on its path. Do not carry loads above machinery or any sensitive equipment such as turbines, generators etc. as much as possible, personnel not involved in the lifting must not be allowed in the vicinity.
  7. CHEMICALS:- Ensure all chemical based cargo are accompanied by an MSDS that can be easily understood by the crane operat
  8. GAS CYLINDERS:- Whether full or empty must be put in specific frames, upright, protected at the top with caps. Separate oxygen from acetylene. Separate oxygen from acetylene.
  9. PRE-SLINGING:- This is recommended. Also, put an adequate tag line for easy guiding of load when it is being lowered. Fibre slings can only be used on chrome materials.
  10. LIFTING PROCEDURE:- A procedure to guide every lifting must be put in place. It should be simple and short to be easily understood by every level of personnel.
