It states that a Risk Assessment should be conducted and that control measures need to be identified and implemented. Sembcorp procedure (MP 1301) is to follow a process of … • Having a Risk Assessment in place to identify significant Hazards, and the Probability of the Hazards causing Harm Controls to protect against the Hazards are identified in the Risk Assessment Individuals carry out their own Risk Assessment – they can increase their protection levels if conditions change Controls are identified in a set order, known as our “Hierarchy of Control” • • • These are ……… 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Eliminate – e.g. don’t use the substance or don’t do the job Substitute – change the substance or method for a different lower hazard one Contain – do the job behind a screen or in a booth Reduce – ½ size bags for weight reduction or reduce the noise levels Protect – use the right Personal Protective Equipment You will note that controls 1 to 4 are collective protection – so that everyone involved with the task benefits from the controls introduced Control measure 5 protects the individual only - This is why we should always aim for collective protection before selecting personal protection, and hence the saying “PPE should be our last line of defence”
  • 2. When we use, maintain or inspect PPE, we must practice good standards of Hygiene. We should do this to prevent cross contamination - e.g we do not want to get dirt in our ears when inserting ear plugs Hygiene at work …… reminder • • • • • The first principle of good hygiene is to avoid an exposure by forming a barrier over the skin with personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves, coveralls, and boots It is important to check the PPE often for excessive contamination, wear, tears, cuts, or pinholes Workers should clean, decontaminate or replace protective equipment frequently to make sure it doesn't collect or absorb irritants If protective equipment such as a dust mask becomes too soiled during the job, the worker should stop and replace it with a clean item or equipment Protective clothing should be sent for cleaning through the in house laundry system when it becomes dirty Basic hand washing and skin care can prevent work exposures and disease. Good washing and scrubbing with water and soap helps to remove germs, contaminants, and chemicals. It can also prevent exposure by ingestion and cross-contamination of the surfaces and objects we touch. Workers should wash their hands before preparing food and before they take breaks at work to eat, drink or smoke. Protect yourself – follow the Hierarchy of Control When using PPE as your Protection - Be safely clean with good hygiene.
