Presentation Transcript

  1. Safe Working Procedure - Handling Materials Learning Objectives: By the end of this program participants will be able to demonstrate their understanding of the control measures to be followed , as detailed in the safe working procedure, when handling, transporting and using materials . To begin we will consider the OAC model for managing safety

  2. Safe Working Procedure - Handling Materials

  3. Safe Working Procedure - Handling Materials Set your work objectives to include; “...tasks/ activities are to be completed on time and in a manner that does not cause harm to the employees, customers, other non-employees, or the company/ organisation.” • Three key questions to start with are… • What can cause harm? • What are you doing about it? • Is it enough? Remember the process is simple but it is NOT to be considered simplistic.

  4. Safe Working Procedure - Handling Materials The OAC e-learning package can be accessed free at www.confinedspaces.com; Click here to open the "Work Safety - Manage Safely" e-learning program. (Work Safety - Manage Safely) also A 5 Minute Safety Seminar (PowerPoint) is available from www.web-safety.com; Click here to link to Safety Exchange - Then open the 5 minute Safety Seminar.

  5. Safe Working Procedure - Handling Materials Know where the harm is; Identify the key hazards & outcomes of accidents when handling, transporting and using materials. • Outcomes of exposure(non-exhaustive list) • Physical injury • Source of Hazards(non-exhaustive list) • Manual handling • Load distribution • Road accidents • Vehicle worthiness • Location • Unauthorised access • Unauthorised use

  6. Safe Working Procedure - Handling Materials • Controlling the Hazard - Options • In priority order; • Eliminate where possible, • Use control measures, • Protect all those exposed to the hazard Insert eliminate image Insert control image Insert protective Clothing image

  7. Safe Working Procedure - Handling Materials • Manual Handling • Arrange the work activities to avoid manual handling, where possible. • Instruct all employees in manual handling control measures, and • Train employees in correct manual handling techniques. Insert equipment image

  8. Safe Working Procedure - Handling Materials • Mechanical handling equipment • Ensure that employees using powered mechanical handling equipment, (e.g. fork-lifts, mobile elevating work platforms) are competent and authorised. • All mechanical handling equipment must conform to the relevant national statutory requirements and bear the statutory markings (e.g. CE marks, Safe Working Load).

  9. Safe Working Procedure - Handling Materials • Storage • Store layouts and stacking arrangements to be designed • To permit ease of access, and • To facilitate appropriate load bearing requirements. • To properly segregate incompatible or volatile materials/ substances. Ensure that where there is a statutory requirement only competent stores personnel handle materials and substances (e.g. pesticides).

  10. Safe Working Procedure - Handling Materials • Transport • Ensure that pedestrians and vehicles are properly segregated on sites and within business locations. • Ensure that the appropriate authorities are informed of abnormal loads or dangerous goods before starting to transport materials. • Obtain all the relevant health and safety advice in relation to the transportation of dangerous goods or substances.

  11. Safe Working Procedure - Handling Materials • All drivers must… • Be authorised persons and competent, • Be deemed medically fit (drivers of heavy goods vehicles), • Undergo regular medical examinations. • Be responsible for ensuring that their vehicles are roadworthy, • Ensure weight limits are adhered to, and • Ensure that loads are evenly distributed and properly secured.

  12. Safe Working Procedure - Handling Materials • Inspection, testing and maintenance • All mechanical handling equipment, vehicles and other road-going equipment is to be regularly inspected, tested and maintained. • Mechanical work equipment and vehicles are to be maintained by competent people.

  13. Storing goods and equipment • The safety control measures, including storage location and security are to be communicated to authorised personnel. • A register of authorised personnel, including notification of any restrictions or special conditions that apply is to be maintained Authorisation is required before any goods, vehicles or equipment are stored away from the business location.
