    9. 9. OHS Policy <ul><li>The OHS Policy provides guidance for establishing a safe workplace </li></ul><ul><li>Afford is committed to providing a Healthy and Safe working environment for all Afford Personnel, Contractors and Visitors. </li></ul><ul><li>This policy is supported by an OHS management system (OHSMS), which is subject to ongoing review and continuous improvement. It establishes AFFORD’s legal obligations and sets required minimum standards for compliance. </li></ul><ul><li>Employees and contractors are required to comply with all applicable OHS Legislation, Regulations, Codes of Practice and Australian Standards as set out in the OHSMS. </li></ul><ul><li>AFFORD requires consultation with affected parties (through their reps) wherever possible on changes that may affect the Health, Safety and Welfare of Afford Personnel and other interested parties </li></ul>
    10. 10. Return to Work Policy <ul><li>The Return to Work Policy provides guidance for enabling return to work after injury. </li></ul><ul><li>Afford is committed to providing Afford Personnel with assistance in the process of Return to Work, in the event of an employee sustaining a work-related injury or illness. </li></ul><ul><li>AFFORD also expects that contractors will provide similar assistance to their employees. </li></ul>
    11. 11. Smoke Free Workplace Smoking is prohibited in all buildings and enclosed areas. Smoking is only allowed outside in designated locations.
    12. 12. Bullying and Harassment <ul><li>AFFORD’s Bullying and Harassment Policy establishes guidance for preventing these activities in AFFROD workplaces. </li></ul><ul><li>Afford is committed to providing safe and equitable working conditions for all personnel and clients. It seeks to eliminate bullying, harassment and discrimination from the workplace and ensure that personnel and clients are not subjected to treatment that is hostile and unprofessional. </li></ul><ul><li>AFFORD will provide personnel with the right to complain if they experience bullying or harassment in the course of their dealings with AFFORD. </li></ul><ul><li>Employees and Contractors are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that can not be misconstrued as bullying or harassing other persons. </li></ul>

To this end: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Waste must be disposed of in appropriate receptacles – do not dispose of waste into drainage systems </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Chemicals must be contained, any spillages must be cleaned up before substances enter waterways and drains </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Air quality – control the levels of dust, fumes, etc affecting other persons on site or neighbouring sites </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Water – keep contaminants clear of stormwater drains </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Noise – Ensure safety of anyone who may be exposed to unsafe noise levels. If activities will generate unsafe levels negotiate with site manager to conduct work outside normal operating hours. </li></ul></ul>
    15. 15. Consultation & Communication <ul><li>AFFORD acknowledges that OHS consultation provides an opportunity for employees to contribute to the decision making for ensuring their own workplace, health, safety and welfare. </li></ul><ul><li>In recognition of this, AFFORD will provide its employees with relevant information help them understand their obligations. </li></ul><ul><li>To the extent that it is practical, AFFORD will consult and communicate with contractors on issues that may affect the health or safety of contractor employees. </li></ul><ul><li>If you wish to provide or obtain OHS related information please consult your site contact in the first instance. </li></ul>

These include:
    23. 23. Emergency Evacuation <ul><li>Before commencing work, you need to make yourself familiar with the assembly area for the site you are working on and emergency exits relevant to your location in the site. </li></ul><ul><li>Refer to the site evacuation plans that are posted around the site at key locations </li></ul><ul><li>Refer to the site plan alongside this computer </li></ul><ul><li>When you arrive at your work location, check around for clear/safe pathways to your nearest exits. </li></ul><ul><li>Make sure you identify at least 2 alternate pathways/exits. </li></ul>
    24. 24. Emergencies <ul><li>If you become aware of a situation requiring emergency action: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Sound the alarm </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If it is safe to do so - isolate any machinery or energy sources that are involved or may cause further problems </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Render aid to any injured persons </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Comply with directions from emergency wardens and first aiders </li></ul></ul>
    25. 25. Emergency Evacuation <ul><li>In an emergency where evacuation is required: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>an alarm siren or bell is sounded. Prepare to evacuate but wait for further instructions. Do not exit the site unless instructed to do so by a Fire Warden. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The Fire Warden will direct you to the nearest fire exit. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>On exiting, please proceed to the assembly point and ensure your name is checked off. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Please remain at the assembly point until further instructions from the fire warden or emergency services personnel. </li></ul></ul>FOLLOW THE GREEN EXIT SIGNS
    26. 26. First Aid <ul><li>First Aid Officers on site are trained and possess First Aid qualifications. </li></ul><ul><li>Should you require first aid treatment contact a First Aider, Supervisor or a staff member as soon as possible. </li></ul><ul><li>First Aid stations are identified with a white cross on a green sign. </li></ul><ul><li>Please ensure your injury details are entered in the injury register. </li></ul>
    27. 27. Hazard Reporting <ul><li>HAZARDS are situations or conditions that have the potential to cause injury to people and/or damage to property. </li></ul><ul><li>The prevention of accidents starts with identifying hazards so that actions can be taken to eliminate or reduce the risk that an incident will occur and the likely degree of damage (or consequences) that might result. </li></ul><ul><li>Contractors, along with all employees in our workplace, are required to report hazards which could cause injury and damage. </li></ul><ul><li>Your assistance in recognising and reporting hazards is essential to ensure everyone's health and safety. </li></ul><ul><li>Hazard/Incident Report Forms are available from any supervisor or manager in the area where you are working. </li></ul><ul><li>When completed, hand the report to a supervisor or manager for follow-up. </li></ul>
    28. 28. Incident Reporting <ul><li>INCIDENTS are unplanned events that may, or may not, result in injury or damage. They include both near misses and accidents. </li></ul><ul><li>Near Misses (or near hits) are incidents where no injury or damage occurs – but could have except for a fraction of distance or timing making the difference. </li></ul><ul><li>Accidents are incidents where people are injured and/or property is damaged. An injury could be as simple as a bump on the head or a grazed finger, or it could be as serious as an amputated limb . </li></ul><ul><li>Near misses could be accidents next time if action is not taken to prevent them recurring. </li></ul><ul><li>If you experience or witness an incident please complete a Hazard & Incident Report Form as soon as possible so that steps can be taken to prevent it happening again. </li></ul>
    29. 29. Manual Handling <ul><li>Manual Handling means any activity requiring the use of force exerted by a person to lift, lower, push, pull, carry or otherwise move, hold or restrain any animate or inanimate object. </li></ul><ul><li>Manual Handling is the cause of the highest group of injuries across all industries. But contrary to popular perception, lifting and carrying do not cause all of these injuries. </li></ul><ul><li>Keeping your spine straight is important when lifting and lowering items but you can be injured by other factors when manual handling --- </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Consider your posture when applying force to lift, move or position an item; Leg muscles should be used to lift vertically – sitting down takes leg muscles out of play and increases the pressure on your spine. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If your back or neck is bent because you cannot stand straight when applying pressure to lift, lower, move or restrain an item you face a real risk of injuring your back. </li></ul></ul>
    30. 30. Manual Handling <ul><li>But lifting and carrying are not the only actions when manual handling so also consider --- </li></ul><ul><ul><li>trying to lift lower or move an item that is too heavy or bulky, even when keeping your back straight, can cause overloading of muscles and joint structures </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>the force required to push or pull an item and the effect on your muscles and joint structures when doing so; Pushing will limit the pressure you can apply due to your body weight but pulling can overstretch muscles, tendons and ligaments – hence pushing is usually safer than pulling. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>the forces applied through muscles when holding something still (stasis) for long periods – circulation to those muscles is restricted hence fuel supply and waste removal is impeded and can cause damage to muscles. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The forces applied through repetitive actions (dynamics) can cause muscle damage too (repetitive strain injuries or RSI) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Take appropriate steps to limit the potential for injuries from manual handling activities – if necessary ask for help. </li></ul>
    31. 31. Plant & Equipment <ul><li>Generally speaking AFFORD plant and machinery is fairly simple in design and operation. However there are still risks associated with these items. </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore: </li></ul><ul><li>Do not operate any equipment unless authorised to do so. When authorised always check to see that no one will be in danger whilst you are using the equipment. </li></ul><ul><li>Guards and electronic safety switches on machinery are provided for your protection. They must be only removed by authorised personnel, following the correct procedures. </li></ul><ul><li>Machines must be switched off after use at the main switch; </li></ul><ul><li>All machinery must be switched off when it is being cleaned or maintained. </li></ul>
    32. 32. Plant & Equipment <ul><li>Other things to consider when working on, with or near plant and machinery are: </li></ul><ul><li>Beware of conveyors. Do not take a short cut under or over a conveyor unless steps are provided. Never handle a moving conveyor belt. </li></ul><ul><li>Promptly report any electrical or mechanical faults to a Supervisor. Unauthorised personnel must not attempt any electrical or major mechanical repairs. </li></ul><ul><li>Compressed air must be used with extreme care. Do not use it to ‘blow down’ dust or other particulates from machines or from your clothing or body parts. </li></ul><ul><li>When using compressed air wear safety glasses, hearing protection and, if necessary, a dust mask and ensure that hoses are in good condition. </li></ul>
    33. 33. Lockout Tag System <ul><li>The controls should be isolated, locked and tagged before cleaning of equipment, maintenance or repair work commences. </li></ul><ul><li>The warning system involves the use of tags: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Danger Tags: designed for personal protection of the individual. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Out of Service Tags: designed to prevent the use of plant or machinery which is out or service for some reason. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Do not operate any switch or device when there is a danger tag attached. Any contractor/employee who ignores or tampers with a tag will be subject to disciplinary action. </li></ul><ul><li>Isolation procedures for equipment are necessary to maintain a safe work environment and involves the isolation of electrical switches, mechanical controls and liquid / gas valves. </li></ul>
    34. 34. Energy <ul><li>All employees and contractors are responsible for reducing unnecessary energy consumption on-site. </li></ul><ul><li>Always check with your Supervisor before switching off any equipment to ensure it is safe to do so. </li></ul><ul><li>Always check your work area before finishing, to ensure all applicable equipment has been switched off. </li></ul><ul><li>Report all air leaks in air lines immediately to you supervisor or person responsible on-site for corrective action. </li></ul>
    35. 35. Hazardous Substances <ul><li>No hazardous substances are to be introduced to the site without the prior approval of the person responsible on-site. </li></ul><ul><li>Approval for hazardous substances requires they must be accompanied with a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) which lists requirements for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), First Aid, medical treatment advice and other safety information. </li></ul>
    36. 36. Work Activities <ul><ul><li>Safe Operating Procedures (SOPs) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Safe Work Procedures (SWPs) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Whatever name you know them by, each task you undertake should be covered by one of these documents. And you must have a copy on hand for reference whilst you are completing your work. </li></ul><ul><li>You must be adhering to the risk controls identified by the relevant document and you must use any identified equipment in accordance with it too. </li></ul>
    37. 37. Housekeeping AFFORD is responsible for providing a safe and healthy workplace, but you share the responsibility for it’s maintenance. Housekeeping is not just the cleaner’s task - it is an essential part of safe working procedures. REMEMBER: THE STANDARD YOU WALK PAST IS THE STANDARD YOU SET <ul><li>Your responsibility is to: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Keep all traffic areas, entry and exit points and fire appliances free from obstruction. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Clean up any spills, oils, grease, etc immediately. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Do not allow discarded materials to accumulate on the floor. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use the garbage bins provided. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Plan your work to ensure you have all of the materials and tools required. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ensure compliance with OHS and environment policies and procedures. </li></ul></ul>
    38. 38. Housekeeping and Tool Safety <ul><li>Please ensure you keep you tools secure when not in use. </li></ul><ul><li>Please keep your tool boxes and materials tidy and under control to prevent mess, damage and theft. </li></ul><ul><li>Some people on site may be curious and want to ‘play’ with your equipment if you leave it where they can reach it. </li></ul>
    39. 39. High Risk Work <ul><li>Certain types of work involve higher than average risks and as a result have minimum standards of management established by law. </li></ul><ul><li>At AFFORD these tasks include: </li></ul><ul><li>Working on Electrical installations </li></ul><ul><li>Work in or on Confined Spaces </li></ul><ul><li>Work at Heights where a fall greater than 2 metres is possible </li></ul><ul><li>Hot Work – arc or gas welding, gas cutting and grinding </li></ul><ul><li>Construction & Excavation </li></ul>
    40. 40.
