  10. 10. Machine Safety  Ensure that engineering controls are in place to protect all staff, visitors, wildlife and neighbours from:  Rotating blades ie: cutting tools - guards  Presses and rollers – interlocks, magic eye  Chemicals – suitable storage and bunding  Dust – LEV systems  Noise – acoustic hoods, walls  Lock and Tag systems 27/04/2015 10Dave Bennion ©2015

  13. 13. Machine Safety  Ensure that all operatives receive full induction, instruction and appropriate training in all processes they will be involved in and on going training and supervision (ie accredited – City & Guilds, NVQ, CITB, CSCS etc)  Remember that fire training ie: Chemicals (COMAH, DSEAR, etc) and first aid is a requirement in some industries.  Remember apprentices, young workers need supervision by trained staff and an individual risk assessment . (College students and work placements) 27/04/2015 13Dave Bennion ©2015
  14. 14. Machine Safety Ensure that the company has an up to date Safety Management System in place and staff are aware of them. That risk assessments, safe systems of work etc are in place and accessible to all staff – these need to be signed off by staff agreeing to adhere to them . Don’t forget young workers and apprentices. Some companies are accredited to OHSAS 18001 (H & S), ISO 14001 (Enviro), ISO 9001 (Quality) or CHAS etc. 27/04/2015 14Dave Bennion ©2015
  15. 15. Machine Safety Ensure that regular audits including spot, slice and grab sampling ie: one designated area. Ensure the whole building and grounds are completed annually. Speak to workers, supervisors, safety reps and unions (if applicable) to ensure that concerns are identified and safer ways of working are found where possible. Some companies employ Lean Six Sigma practitioners ie PDCA, 5S, DMAIC etc as part of there continual improvement and sustainability programme. 27/04/2015 15Dave Bennion ©2015

  17. 17. Machine Safety Ensure that all accidents and near miss incidents are recorded – this is also important as it can identify trends as well as a measure of safety system effectiveness. Remember if an incident occurs (including near misses) you will need to revalidate the effectiveness of current risk assessments and working procedures and adjust accordingly. 27/04/2015 17Dave Bennion ©2015
  18. 18. Machine Safety Ensure all steps are taken to foster a safety culture to drive down incidents ie: safety meetings, toolbox talks, complaints procedure. Ensure workers are consulted and new work processes or charges in environment are fully assessed. Remember that workers are able to say if something is working or not! 27/04/2015 18Dave Bennion ©2015
  19. 19. Machine Safety  Keep the risk of an incident occurring as low as reasonably practicable ie: “ The likelihood of an incident occurring x the consequence of that incident x the financial cost of putting reasonable measures in place to significantly lower the risk of an occurrence = risk factor. 27/04/2015 19Dave Bennion ©2015
