"We are celebrating 1st anniversary of getbes with the launch of WORLD HEALTH MARCH. It is a social wing of GETBES that works for the welfare of people and empowers people to perform social entrepreneurship, and achieve big missions, the human way." - ujjawal k. Thakur

The impacts of climate change include warming temperatures, changes in precipitation, increases in the frequency or intensity of some extreme weather events, and rising sea levels. These impacts threaten our health by affecting the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the weather we experience.

Effective controls protect workers from workplace hazards; helps in avoiding injuries, illnesses, and incidents; minimize or eliminate safety and health risks; and help employers provide workers with safe and healthful working conditions. The processes described in this section will help employers prevent and also control hazards identified in the previous section.

To effectively prevent and control hazards, employers should:

Identify Control Options

A wealth of information exists to help employees investigate options for controlling identified hazards. Before selecting any control options, it is essential to solicit workers input on their feasibility and effectiveness.

Select Controls

Employers should select the controls that are the most feasible, effective, and permanent.

Develop and update a hazard control plan

A hazard control plan describes how the selected controls will be implemented. An effective plan will address serious hazards first. Interim controls may be necessary but the overall goal is to ensure effective long-term control of hazards. It is important to track progress toward completing the control plan and periodically verify that controls remain effective.

Select Controls to protect workers during nonroutine operations and emergencies

The hazard control plan should include provisions to protect workers during nonroutine operations and foreseeable emergencies. Depending on your workplace, these could include fires and explosions, chemical releases. Hazardous material spills, unplanned equipment shutdowns, infrequent maintenance activities, natural and weather disasters, workplace violence, terrorist or criminal attacks, disease outbreaks or medical emergencies. Nonroutine tasks, or tasks workers don’t normally do, should be approached with particular caution. Prior to initiating such work, review job hazard analyses with any workers involved and notify others about the nature of the work, work schedule, and any necessary precautions.

Implement Selected Controls in the Workplace

once hazard prevention and control measures have been identified, they should be implemented according to the hazard control plan.

Follow up to confirm that controls are effective

To ensure that control measures are and remain effective, employers should track progress in implementing controls, inspect and evaluate controls once they are installed and follow routine preventive maintenance practices.

The impacts of climate change include warming temperatures, changes in precipitation, increases in the frequency or intensity of some extreme weather events, and rising sea levels. These impacts threaten our health by affecting the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the weather we experience.

The severity of these health risks will depend on the ability of public health and safety systems to address or prepare for these changing threats, as well as factors such as individual’s behavior, age, gender, and economic status. Impacts will vary based on a where a person lives, how sensitive they are to health hazards threats, how much are they exposed to change in climate impacts, and how they and their community are able to change the adaptation.

People in developing countries may be the most vulnerable to health risks globally, but climate change poses significant threats to health even in wealthy nations such as United States.

As the world gets hotter and crowded, our engines continue to pump out dirty emissions, and half of the world has no access to clean fuels or technologies the very air we breathe is growing dangerously polluted nine out of 10 people now breathe polluted air which almost kills millions of people every year.

The health effects of air pollution are serious- one third of deaths from stroke, lung cancer and heart disease are due to air pollution. This is having an equivalent effect to that of smoking tobacco, and much higher than the effects to eating too much salt.

Air pollution is hard to escape, no matter how rich an area you live in. It is all around us. Microscopic pollutants in the air can slip past our body’s defenses, penetrating deep into our respiratory and circulatory system, damaging our lungs. Heart and brain.

Air Pollution is closely linked to climate change- the main drivee of climate change is fossil fuel combustion which is also a major contributor to air pollution -and efforts to mitigate one can improve the other. This month, the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warned that coal-fired electricity must end by 2050 if we are to limit global warming rises 1.5 cr. If not, we may see a major crisis in 20 years.

The lack of visible smog is no indication that the air is healthy. Across the world, both the villages and cities are seeking toxic pollutants in the air exceed the average annual values recommend by WHO”s air quality guidelines.

The movements to control health hazard includes all necessary steps to protect workers from exposure to a substance or system, the training and the procedures required to monitor worker exposure and their health to hazards such as chemicals, materials or substance, or other types of hazards such as noice and vibration.

work place hazard control

The main ways to control a hazard include-


remove the hazard from the workplace or substitute hazardous materials or machines with less hazardous ones.

Engineering Controls

includes modifications or designs to plants, equipment, ventilation systems, and processes that reduce the source of exposure.

Administrative Controls

controls that alter the way the work is done, including timing of work, policies and other rules and work practices such as operating procedures (including training, housekeeping, and equipment maintenance and personal hygiene practices).

Personal Protective Equipment-

Equipment worn by individuals to reduce exposure such as contact with chemicals or exposure to noise.

The Covid-19 pandemic has actually fractured the financial system globally exposing age-old cracks within our supply chain systems. Its lethal shut-down rate of world economies has forced financial analysts against the wall to rethink the connecting nodes of business value chains. A Front Runner in this race is remedy the situation in Block-Chain Technology.

Healthcare systems are overwhelmed, with entrepreneurs and scientists scurrying to the aid of all. Notwithstanding leading global corporations that have begun to implement Blockchain- based solutions to fight the pandemic of COVID-19.

Benefits of Blockchain in fighting COVID-19

Being the digital ledger that blockchain is, it has distinguished features with each of them sufficient, in and of themselves, to power an enterprise blockchain adoption, both in the current healthcare climate as well as in the future.

Trustable Data Management

one of the reasons the COVID-19 pandemic has hit us like a lightning is due to outdated data management systems. It outlined in its agenda is the need for a nationwide electronic healthcare infrastructure with the provisions of verifying identity of user and also the layers of security. Turns out that the Coronavirus impact on blockchain value addition is right on the money. Blockchain can be used to manage/organize thousands of records with automated data verification and provenance.

Decentral Surveillance Systems

Blockchain breaks the information barriers silos also allows in participating nodes to input ethical data without real time piracy. We can begin by housing big data on a digital ledger for selected but trustworthy members of a global consortium with indubitable provisions for data sharing.

Empowered Supply Chain Management

There is a strong case for blockchain to be the antidote the frailing supply chain management needed. It can eliminate fraud and unwanted paperwork, track shipments to their source of origin, effectuate real-time transfer of funds and also establish trust between parties. With the blockchain, advance disaster management can ensure that essential resources such as personal protective gear, masks and medicines are stockpiled and diverted to the most vulnerable sections of the society.
