  • All employees are required to use such equipment in accordance with the manufacturer’s instruction. Individual specialized PPE must be used for the appropriate task. ___________________________________ Fosters HSE Manual 11.5 Cal OSHA Title 8, section 3380
  • Hazard vs. Risk - A hazard is an inherent (built-in) property of a material. Risk is the extent to which that material can cause harm. You can reduce or remove risks associated with a hazardous material, but you can not remove the underlying hazard itself (unless you get rid of the hazardous material, of course). The key to the safe use of hazardous materials is using adequate control strategies to keep hazardous chemicals from contacting workers at harmful levels. 1. Elimination - this is a permanent solution and should be attempted in the first instance.  The hazard or environmental aspect is eliminated all together. 2. Substitution - involves replacing the hazard or environmental aspect by one that represents a lower risk. 3. Engineering Control - involves some structural changes to the work environment or work process to place a barrier between the worker or environment and the hazard or environmental aspect. 4. Administrative (Procedural-SOPs) Control - this acts to reduce or eliminate exposure of individuals to a hazard by adhering to procedures or instructions.   5. Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) - relates only to hazards and their impact on personal safety risks.  It is worn by people as a barrier between themselves and the hazard.  
  • PPE shall be reasonably comfortable and shall not restrict employee’s movements necessary to perform his/her work. Defective PPE must never be used or worn. Instructor: Remind attendees, all PPE should be inspected for tears, leaks, punctures, breaks, contamination, or signs of wear before use. One size DOES NOT fit all when it comes to PPE.
  • Different manufacturers specify different levels of personal protective equipment on their Material Safety Data Sheets for handling acid or alkaline substances. Such substances include cleaning chemicals and detergents. *The minimum PPE required for handling any substance containing more than 10% acid or alkali if not contained in a process pipe, sealed vessel, or vessel with closed lid is chemical safety goggles and impervious gloves, regardless of what the manufacturer recommends.
  • Some of the possible causes for eye injuries include: ( Review site specific tasks ) 1) Dust and other flying particles. 2) Acids and Caustics liquid chemicals that might splash. 3) Fragments that are propelled when using power tools. 4) Flying particles accelerated by pressure spraying or pressurized vessels. 5) Some types of welding can cause irreversible eye damage without protective lenses. 6) Sun exposure from anything emitting extreme heat. Depending upon the hazard in the work area, an employee must use the proper eye protection provided by Treasury Wine Estates to prevent eye damage. Eye protection must protect against the specific hazards encountered in the workplace. Eye protection must not interfere with the function of other required PPE corrective eyeglasses. Review site specific requirements for eye protection. Face Shield Goggles Glasses
  • Using hearing protection incorrectly can result in permanent hearing loss. Review site specific requirements for hearing protection. 1) Single-use earplugs - Made of waxed cotton, foam, or fiberglass wool, these ear plugs are self-forming and must be inserted in the ear canal to be effective. Placing ear plugs outside of the ear canal will not prevent hearing loss. 2) Canal Caps - Sometimes single-use and disposable. Non disposable plugs should be cleaned after each use. 3) Earmuffs - Earmuffs require a perfect seal around the ear. Glasses, long sideburns, long hair, and facial movements such as chewing may reduce the protective value of earmuffs. Best practices for additional protection from Hearing Loss: Keep safe distance from noise source - Space and distance can significantly reduce the noise level. Time - Limit the amount of time exposed to the noise source. Barriers - Barriers are also an excellent solution to high noise areas.
  • Administrative controls have been implemented at all Treasury Wine Estates sites to reduce risk of falling objects and walking into hanging fixed objects.
  • Review site specific requirements. Chemical Resistant Gloves Cut Resistant Disposable Gloves Leather Arm Sleeve ________________________ *Fosters HSE Manual 13.2 Specific Substance - Acids/Alkalies
  • Review site specific requirements. Provided footwear must be worn at all times when working on site or in a vineyard. Provided footwear must be worn in the manner designed. Employees reporting for work without their provided footwear will not be allowed to start work. The employee will be asked to return home to retrieve his/her footwear and to then report back to work. The time away from the worksite will be unpaid.
  • Review site specific requirements. High visibility vests are required in, at, and around production areas on all FWEA sites.

    3. 3. <ul><li>Personal protective equipment (PPE) is designed to protect employees from serious workplace injury or illnesses resulting from hazards in the work environment. </li></ul>PURPOSE The following are examples of PPE that can be seen in the workplace:
    4. 4. <ul><li>Manufacturing environments addresses potential hazards by removing the hazard or reducing the risks associated with the hazard in accordance with hierarchy of control measures in the following order: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Elimination </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Substitution </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Engineering Controls </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Administrative (Procedural) Control </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) </li></ul></ul>HIERARCHY OF CONTROLS
    5. 5. <ul><li>PPE is required when a Risk Assessment (RA) or Job Safety Analysis (JSA) indicates the need for added protection. </li></ul><ul><li>The selection of PPE is determined by the type that is most appropriate and provides the most protection. </li></ul><ul><li>PPE does not eliminate the hazard nor protect you if not properly fitted and maintained in a clean and serviceable condition. </li></ul>HIERARCHY OF CONTROLS - PPE Hazard Control clearly defines PPE to be the last control on the risk management hierarchy.
    6. 6. PPE TYPES There are many types of PPE available for all levels of protection. This site has reviewed all RAs and JSAs and will provide the correct level and type of PPE for each employee.
    7. 7. <ul><li>The structure of your face protects your eyes, still, some injuries can damage your eye severely enough that you can lose your vision. Most eye injuries are preventable with proper PPE. </li></ul>HEAD PROTECTION Eye Protection
    8. 8. <ul><li>Noise can become a hazard when it enters the ear at 85 decibels (dBA) or above. Noise can damage the hair cells inside the cochlea (inner ear). Damage to the hair cells is irreparable and can result in hearing loss. </li></ul>Ear Muffs Canal Caps Ear Plugs Example of a healthy Cochlea contains approximately 40,000 hair cells. Example of a damaged Cochlea HEAD PROTECTION Hearing Protection
    9. 9. Head injuries can cause neck sprains, concussions and skull fractures. If at anytime the need for head protection is identified by RA or JSA at any site, PPE will be provided. HEAD PROTECTION Head Protection
    10. 10. UPPER EXTREMITY PROTECTION Arms, Hands & Skin (Cut resistant) Hand injuries are common. Without the use of the hand or fingers, the ability to work is greatly reduced if not almost impossible. To protect the hands, the proper types of gloves and proper fit must be obtained. Chemical Resistant Cut Resistant Disposable Leather Arm/Sleeve
    11. 11. Slips, trips and falls result in sprains, strains or tears - injuries that can be painful, long lasting, and may result in time lost from work. Falls may also cause head injuries, knee injuries, fractures and broken bones. Treasury Wine Estates provides yearly footwear consisting of: <ul><li>Above the ankle </li></ul><ul><li>Lace Up </li></ul><ul><li>Waterproof or water resistant </li></ul><ul><li>Fitted by a professional </li></ul>LOWER EXTREMITY PROTECTION Foot Protection
    12. 12. TORSO/BODY PROTECTION Many hazards can threaten the torso/body such as heat or cold temperatures, splashes from chemicals and being struck by a moving object. A variety of protective clothing is provided, including vests, shirts, aprons and coveralls.
    13. 13. <ul><li>To ensure a culture of responsibility and accountability, employees are trained and made aware of company policy so that each understands HSE considerations and incorporates them into their decisions and daily activities. </li></ul>CONCLUSION
    14. 14. Practice Session <ul><li>Students will practice putting on vest, ear plugs, safety glasses and gloves </li></ul>
